Red lipstick isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but it wouldn’t be Christmas without throwing a few reds into the mix. Here are five of my favourite lipsticks for the festive season.
Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in the shade Nude-ist I’m a big fan of matte lipsticks and liquid lipsticks, I just find that they last longer and I don’t have to worry about them ending up smeared across my face. The Rouge Edition Velvets are one of the best liquid lipsticks I’ve tried. This shade is a bold nude if that makes sense. It’s a pinkish mauve shade that lasts through eating and drinking and when it does begin to wear off, it leaves a slight stain behind. My friend Cat bought a really gorgeous berry shade from the line and I think I might need it in my life!
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Outlaw I’ve talked about these lipsticks before, I’m in love with them! This is the classic Christmas red of the selection. Once you’ve got it on, it’s not going anywhere until you take it off. I had it on today when I went into town and I got so many compliments on it. It’s got to be my favourite red lipstick.
MAC Patisserie is a classic peachy nude. This is the one to go for if you don’t want to be worried about your lipstick wearing off, or just want something really low maintenance, and because it’s got a moisturising formula it’s a great lipstick for the winter.
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Bachelorette This lipstick holds a special place in my heart, it’s the first one I bought when I was in New York with my family, even though I did think I was buying a different one, it was a happy accident. This one is more of a pinkish red, and I love it!
MAC Lady Danger This one is actually a summer favourite of mine. For some reason it reminds me of going to Greece with two of my best friends (and it looks great when I have a tan!) This one is a matte orangey red and it’s completely different to anything else I have! I think this is what I wore for New Years last year.
What are your favourite lipsticks for this time of year? What do I need to buy?!
Sorry this post ended up being a day late, it was bound to happen eventually. I’m still planning on posting all the way up to Christmas, hopefully I won’t miss any more!
