I don’t know about you, but when it comes to festive winter dressing… I’m often at a loss. And, no winter festivity is harder to dress for than New Year’s Eve, am I right? Unlike a casual holiday cocktail party, NYE is a night where you’re expected to go all-out with your wardrobe—even if the temperatures outside make you want to stay on the couch, draped in a Snuggie. What’s a fun-loving, stylish, yet cold woman to do?
Well, friends, I have the answer: lipstick. A serious lipstick is the item that will allow you to wear your cozy comfortable clothes while also looking drop-dead gorgeous and ready to party. But, New Year’s isn’t the time for you to slap on your everyday lipstick and call it good. This is a long evening, and hence you need to pull out the big guns—so, I’ve rounded up some of the best long-wearing lipsticks out there that will take you from dinner to cocktails to dancing the night away in style. Pick your shade, slap it on, and party like it’s 2017—cheers!

If you prefer your lip look with a nice dose of gloss, it doesn’t get anymore luxurious than this vinyl stain from YSL—swipe it on and feel like a fancy lady all. Night. Long.
A bold red is always awesome in the winter, but to mix things up a bit for NYE, I love this lightweight liquid lip in Electra Pink. So chic with a black slip dress, no?
