Is there any lipstick color so perfect for winter as a burgundy? Even beyond the holidays, the rich, deep shade — a blend of red, brown, and purple — adds an eye-grabbing element to any look. Is it any wonder stars love it? Here, explore the best celebrity burgundy lipstick inspo to get you started.

Rihanna’s worn (and personally created) every lipstick color under the sun, but few shades compare to burgundy. Paired with her pink gingham blazer and split curtain bangs, the dark lipstick adds a chic, moody twist to her otherwise prim-and-pretty look.Jonathan Leibson/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images
It’s one of Dakota Johnson’s signature beauty equations — add equal parts tousled bangs, smoky bedroom eyes, and a statement lip to create a standout look every time. At a 2019 industry event, Johnson opted for a matte burgundy lipstick for a retro touch.Steve Granitz/WireImage/Getty Images
Few can do such effortless elegance like Mindy Kaling, and this glossy burgundy lip look is proof. Deep and purple-tinted, Kaling’s lipstick is a glowing complement to her equally shiny blowout, complete with some very trendy side-bangs.Jon Kopaloff/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images
A standout lipstick shade can also double as the centerpiece of an entire head-to-toe look. The always-stunning Margot Robbie proved it when she paired a cutout dress with a low-key ponytail and burgundy lipstick at a 2022 film festival — all eyes immediately go to the bold shade.Miikka Skaffari/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images
Take if from Beyoncé — if you’re going retro, go burgundy. A more unexpected (and arguably more compelling) shade than a classic red, the dark lip color Beyoncé wore to her 2022 Shawn Carter Foundation Gala perfectly suited her feathered gown, even holding its own against her lush, vintage curls.Kevin Mazur/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images
Burgundy lipstick doesn't need to be opaque to make a statement. Lana Condor proved it when she wore a lighter burgundy shade to a 2019 event, paired with a cool-girl smoky eye look. The softer color, blended into an almost ombré effect for a fuller-looking bottom lip, is both relaxed and distinct.Steven Ferdman/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images
While mattes lend themselves well to retro-inspired looks, burgundy lip glosses are pure opulence — just check out Viola Davis’ 2015 Oscars look. The super-shiny finish is an elegant addition to her glowing cheeks and long lashes, with the shade perfectly complementing her shell-pink gown.Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images
Moody is practically Lana Del Rey’s middle name, and her appearance at the 2012 Met Gala is all the evidence needed. Opting for a dark fairytale vibe, she paired her whimsical cape and long, glossy curls with a striking burgundy lipstick for added drama — it worked.Kevin Mazur/WireImage/Getty Images
There are so many exciting elements to Tracee Ellis Ross’ 2019 premiere look — sienna nail polish! Ballerina bun! — but the best part is undoubtedly her coordinated burgundy lipstick and matching clutch. A more muted shade of burgundy, it takes center stage against her otherwise pared-down makeup.Frazer Harrison/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images
Sultry yet sophisticated in a burgundy corset-style ensemble and matching lipstick, Kerry Washington never disappoints. The reds and purples at play in her makeup blend beautifully to add a touch of edginess into her sleek 2018 look.Roy Rochlin/Getty Images Entertainment/Getty Images
