There are many memorable things about The Holiday, one of our favorite Christmas movies (on Hulu now, in case you fancy a rewatch!), but one of them is the stunning beauty looks that Cameron Diaz is serving through the rom-com, especially her famous Berry Kiss lipstick. There's just something about the berry hue that makes her complexion sing and those famous blue eyes pop.

Berry is also the best lipstick shade for the season right now—even if you're not pairing it with some Cameron-worthy cream knitwear and a chic bob hairstyle. In an ideal world, we'd like to add it to our Christmas wishlist along with Diaz's chocolate box cottage.

There's just one golden rule when wearing this color lipstick. "When the mouth is a red or berry shade, keep skin luminous with softly defined brows," says Neil Young, Givenchy's make-up ambassador.

There's so much about The Holiday that chimes with this time of year. There's Jude Law looking very fine; the romance between Jack Black and Kate Winslet that warms even the most skeptical of hearts and...that scene that has every beauty junkie Googling 'Berry Kiss' lipstick.

Cast your minds back to when little Olivia turns to Amanda [a.k.a. Diaz] and says, "I like your lipstick, what color is it?" and Amanda replies, "I think it's called...Berry Kiss?" Well, we can't be 100% sure of the exact shade that was used on Diaz on set, but we think we've got a pretty good inkling.

We're willing to bet our last dollar that the exact shade was Clinique's Long Last Lipstick in No.09 Berry Kiss Matte. Sadly, this shade has been discontinued but the above lipsticks from Clinique and Mary Kay are close dupes. 

So you know what lipstick to cozy up with this holiday season. Now, all we need is Jude Law in a cable knit jumper lounging by the tree...
