Festive Reds – lipsticks for Christmas

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.

xoxo
