MAC’s latest makeup collab just made planning out your holiday party beauty routine much easier (whew!). Red lips are synonymous with the holidays — parties included, duh — and are always in style regardless of whether you’re going to an office shindig or showing up to your family’s annual holiday dinner. They’re classic, feminine and bold without being overly trendy. It’s not easy finding the ideal red lipstick though (trust us, we’ve been through this struggle) because shades, formulas and price points vary. That’s all about to change next month, thanks to this timely and timeless beauty launch.

Dita Von Teese, who is the picture of old Hollywood glam in the ’00s, created the perfect, classic red lipstick shade with MAC, launching next month. Don’t think this will be a full line of Dita-inspired lipsticks, though :( Just *one* lipstick shade is in the works, so they must have really found the ideal red hue. Red lipstick has varying undertones, so the fact that this might be the red lipstick is big news in the beauty world.

The lipstick launch goes hand-in-hand with Dita’s new book, Your Beauty Mark, which comes out December 1. As a certified glamour queen, Dita knows her ish about the ideal crimson shade and which formulas actually stay put all day (and night) long, so you know this lipstick is going to be legit AF.
