When I think of a holiday lip color a deep, sexy shade of red automatically pops into my head. A perfect example of this is NARS Rita Audacious Lipstick ($32.00 // Sephora) - particularly in this years special edition, red holiday packaging.

The NARS Audacious Lipstick formula is one of my all-time favorites and Rita, described as "scarlet", is no exception to this. Each Audacious shade that I've tried is comfortable to wear, highly pigmented and easy to apply. While they're not transfer proof they are long-lasting. The darker shades can even last a bit through a meal to the point where you just have to rub your lips together and apply a balm to be good to go.
