The Perfect Bold New Year's Eve Party Lipstick

One of the biggest traditions of ringing in the New Year is to kiss those dearest to us. Not only are you sharing a celebration with those you love but our hope is that those who are with us as we welcome a New Year will remain in our lives another 12 months.

Leaving your lip color on another person is NOT an option so an ultra long wearing product is a must have for New Year’s. Start off 2011 with a BOLD color that shows your daring side. Reds and bright pinks are a plus for New Year’s.

There are several brands that will give you a beautiful shade but help keep lipstick off the collar.

MAC Pro Longwear Rouge

MAC Cosmetics’ Pro Long Wear Lipcreme is part of a new generation of technology. The color promises to stay true with 12 hours of wear. I am wearing MAC Pro LongWear Lip Creme in Rouge in the photo above and it is a great New Year’s Eve party choice for practically every complexion, especially with that signature LBD.

Chanel Rouge Allure in Dragon

I personally am a huge fan of Chanel’s lip colors. Chanel’s Rouge Allure in Dragon (#75) is a classic red lippie that is one part pin-up, one part pure sexy. It lasts and lasts like the Energizer Bunny, and is sure to turn heads. If you’re searching for THE red lipstick for New Year’s Eve, pick this one!

Laura Mercier Lipstain in Scarlet

In this photo above, I am wearing Laura Mercier’s lip stain in Scarlet. It looks much brighter in the jar but once applied is a lighter shade of red for those of you who aren’t ready to risk having too many smooches. This is a good choice for those who don’t want a “blaring red light” kind of lipstick: it’s elegant yet showy…just like your New Year’s Eve.

I know you’ll turn heads with your sexy dress and stilettos but I want to know…will your kissable lips be BOLD and DARING this New Year’s? How adventurous are you?
