If there was ever a season that called out for a red lip, then it is definitely Christmas. A red lipstick can finish off even the most simple outfit, it shouts out “Hello! here I am and I’m ready to party”. I have far too many red lipsticks, but I have picked out six of my favourites to share with you.
ESTEE LAUDER 340 ENVIOUS
A gorgeous red with a deep pink undertone. It is extremely comfortable to wear and not at all drying.
MUA SHADE 1
Makeup Academy’s deep raspberry red is glides on like a lip balm, a beautiful shade and a great affordable brand.
MAKEUP REVOLUTION (name has worn off!!)
This is a true pillar box red and is such a smooth application. Also a really affordable brand.
RIMMEL THE ONLY 1 MATTE LIPSTICK 500 TAKE THE STAGE
I absolutely love this lipstick from Rimmel. It is a matte lipstick and it stays on forever! A browny red shade. Love it.
BENEFIT THEY’RE REAL DOUBLE THE LIP REVVED UP RED
This lipstick was part of a set from Benefit that came out in the summer. It has a lip liner built-in which is a novel idea but it doesn’t really work. None the less, this is a lovely lipstick – a pinky red.
CHANEL ROUGE ALLURE INK 150 LUXURIANT
This is a liquid lip colour and is actually the first liquid lipstick I have used. Whenever I have tried them in the past, I haven’t liked the feel of them on my lips. This one, however I do like, and I love that it actually stayed on all day. A deep pinky red – perfect.
Well it is almost here. Only one more week, seven more sleeps and six more shopping days ’til Christmas. I hope you all have a great Christmas and have all your family and friends around you.
