Inject Festive Cheer With Your Lips♥

Personally, red lips are an essential for the festive period. There's just something about them that are perfect for Christmas. Although I do like to wear a red lip all year round, there's something special about wearing them. I have four favourites which I like to alternate between, and decided that I would share them for all my fellow red lip lovers out there. And funnily enough, they're all matte. 

Lip Duals Ravishing Red* - If you can cast your mind back a few weeks ago, you will remember me raving about this lipstick (find the post here). As I reviewed it recently, I'm not going to ramble on too much, just briefly. It's a dual lipstick, meaning it comes with a lipstick and a lipgloss which turns the lipstick into a lipstain. It's a matte red but looks beautiful on the lips, and if you have dry lips, it won't cling to the dry patches. It lasts a lifetime on your lips and looks beautiful with so many different makeup looks, and skin tones.

MAC Charlotte Olympia lipstick in Starlett Scarlet - another much loved matte lipstick reviewed not all that long again (read post here). It's a slightly different formula to the previous matte - I feel it's a tad more drying, but nothing a layer of lipbalm underneath can't solve. It's a striking red which is as red as Rudolph's nose. You are almost guaranteed to spread the Christmas cheer. An extra bonus I have picked up on by wearing this is that it makes your teeth appear whiter due to the undertones.

Urban Decay Gwen Stefani lipstick in 716* - This is a slightly darker red to the others. It particularly suits darker eye looks, such as winged eyeliner. I feel it is a bit more on the drying side, but it does come with extremely gorgeous packaging which is a special added extra. The staying power is good, but for eating, it does have the tendency to smudge a tad, so beware! It looks especially good if used with a lip liner to make it appear "sharper". I reckon that this would suit darker skin tone so well.

Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede lipstick in Trendsetter - This has been a much loved red lipstick of mine for the longest time ever. Now my red lipstick stash has increased, I feel it doesn't receive the same sort of love as it previously did, but despite this, I still adore it. It's exceptionally creamy, but dries to a matte finish. It's more of a vibrant red in comparison to the other reds mentioned, and I think this is why I like it so much. Even wore with the simplest of makeup, it somehow manages to compliment the look really well.

I don't think I could pick a favourite out of the four, I really love them all for different reasons. At this current moment, I'm considering wearing a red lip for Christmas Day, but I haven't quite decided which one. Oh the choices are endless.

What are your favourite Christmas time reds?

  2. Personally I tend to go for the darker shades such as Rimmel 107 or NYX lip cream in Copenhagen, never really wear brighter shades x

  5. These lippies sound great! I love a nice deep red for the Christmas season. I think that everyone has been in love with the Rimmel 107 from years ago - That's usually my go-to red lipstick as well!

  7. I adore red lipsticks and probably have at least 25 or maybe more. My favorite reds for everyday are somewhat sheer like ones I have from YSL or Lipstick Queen. For long lasting red, my fave is from Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick. I also love a Smashbox red. Sorry I can't remember any of the shade name coz I've got so many.

  8. These look like such wearable lipsticks for the holidays. I got the new UD holiday shade and it is quite vampy and dark, I am not sure how it would go over at a family function (or with all that food) but I think these reds would all look great.
