I've been seriously obsessed with red lipstick lately. I love pairing it with eye makeup that includes a simple neutral eye (Stila Kitten smudge pot or Maybelline Barely Branded), a cat eye created with my Lancome art liner and a natural pink matte blush. I'm always on the search for a that perfect red lipstick color, especially for the holiday season. That's why I was so excited to be able to test out the Metal Red from Lipstick Queen's NEW The Metals! This is hot, hot, red hot!

Inspired by lipstick's own intrinsic magnetism, Poppy King has created three metallic lipsticks for the holiday season with an irresistible magnetic allure. Intensely irresistible and glamorous, these lipsticks contain an overdose of ultra-fine metallic pearls and rich pigments for the ultimate magnetic allure. Enriched with high levels of antioxidant Vitamin E and Apricot Kernal Oil to nourish and comfort the lips, these lipsticks cannot fail to entrance you with their smooth, drag-free application, creamily comfortable wear and luxuriously rich coverage. Retails for $24.
This is not your ordinary red lipstick. The color plus the metallic sheen with some glitter makes this an extra hot red lipstick. I think of this color for Christmas and New Years Eve parties. For most women, this is not going to be a wearable everyday red color. But if you're looking for something to get you noticed and compliment your killer holiday outfit, then I definitely recommend checking this out. If you just like the metallic finish, but aren't sure you can pull off the bright red color with this finish, I'd suggest first starting with the Metal Nude which may be a more wearable color for you.
What do you think of this color? What color will you be rocking on your lips for the holidays?
