Best Bet: Clarins Rouge Prodige Lipstick


If there’s ever a time to paint your lips an unapologetic shade of red, it’s the holidays. But finding the right flattering hue — not too vampy or garish — is key. Our pick for the season: Clarins’s Rouge Prodige lipstick in fusion red, a sophisticated shade of berry. But the line’s real draw is the feel: It’s a pigment-rich lipstick that moisturizes, without the slickness or stickiness of a gloss. It lasts through multiple rounds of drinks (hey, it's the holidays) without touch-ups and keeps lips feeling smooth, even in typically drying weather.

Clarins Rouge Prodige lipstick, $24 at Macy’s or online.
