I love classic red lipstick for the Holiday season. Well, anytime really but especially around the holidays!
Something about it really pulls together an entire ensemble. That being said, the type of lipstick really matters too. There are a few boxes I like to check for my makeup purchases.
- Clean/non-toxic ingredients
- Sustainable packaging
- Responsibly made and sourced
It’s a tall order. But makeup like this does exist! Here are my top picks:
Clean Red Lipsticks:

Tower28 is a wonderful clean beauty brand. They’re vegan, cruelty-free and contain no harmful chemicals. This lipgloss has a high shine finish, is non-sticky and gives the perfect sheer lip for those not ready to dive into a bold, red lip.
Cheekbone Beauty’s products are vegan, cruelty-free, fragrance-free and clean! Their products come in 100% recyclable packaging and each shade is named after an influential Indigenous person who’s making an impact. This liquid lipstick is matte and described as a “true red” that’s perfect for the holidays!
Milk Makeup is a clean brand that is vegan and full of nourishing ingredients like shea butter! Their demi-matte finish isn’t drying and has a warm red-orange hue.
I love that Sephora offers its own line of affordable clean beauty products. Not only is this lipstick clean and vegan but it’s also super hydrating like a lip balm and comes in recyclable packaging!
Cruelty-free and vegan, Ilia’s lipstick is high-pigmented with a creamy finish. Ilia is also a part of 1% for the planet meaning they donate 1% of all their annual earnings to planet conservation projects. This shade of red is a twist on the classic holiday red with soft pink undertones giving it a brighter finish.
Clove and Hallow’s lipsticks are made vegan, cruelty-free and with recyclable materials right in the USA. This lipstick is buildable with lots of hydration! Damsel is also the perfect classic red shade!
This is a lipstick that looks like a lipstick but feels like lip balm. It’s moisturizing, cruelty-free and made in the USA. They’re a certified B Corporation, certified Carbon Neutral and a part of 1% for the planet! The shade Oliva is the perfect, bright, classic red lipstick!
All of these clean red lipsticks are perfect for the holidays and are safe for both you and the environment! Which one is your favourite?
