Here are 16 ultra-glam lipsticks that aren’t red but they’re still perfect for the holidays

Red lipstick and the month of December have been BFFs for the last thousand years or so, and we’re cool with that — a poppin’ red pout is always in order. Holiday glam and classic red lipstick go hand-in-hand.

We just thought we’d extend a friendly reminder that red lips aren’t the only option this season. How about we break out of the (bright red) box and try something a little different? Don’t worry, we have something that will be just as glamorous and bewitching as crimson colored lipstick.

After a LOT of digging, we found 16 glam lips products that are festive, fun, and seasonal. Basically, all that good stuff, but they just aren’t red. Nope, no scarlet hues allowed (unless your lips get stained by red wine!). For now, put down the Ruby Woo and make room in your beauty battle station for these metallics, golds, deep purples, greens, and shades of blue — yeah gurl, BLUE!
