I do love a good red lip, especially at this time of the year. You will probably see me rocking a red lip almost every day of December! I thought for today’s post I would share my favourite red lip colours for the festive period!
First up, my Rimmel 107. This is a popular colour I know, and I love this deep berry toned red. It’s perfect to make a look more dramatic and if you are like me and not an avid eye shadow wearer then a dark lipstick can really add something to your daily makeup look.
The second lipstick I actually received last Christmas in a Ted Baker gift set. It doesn’t have a name or shade or number but this red lipstick has been an absolute staple in my makeup collection since I received it! It’s such a perfect red for me, I can wear this from day to night. It’s a really versatile orangey red colour. As this is a bit more bright I find that I can actually wear it all year round but I especially love it nearer Christmas!
Next up is a more recent product to enter my collection and it is ‘Lady Danger’ from MAC. Again this is an orangey toned red which makes it really bright and I love it. I also love that it’s matte effect because matte lipsticks are my fav! It’s such a bright, fun festive colour!
This next lipstick/product I have had for a while now and I love it so much because it’s so moisturising which makes it perfect for this time of year when my lipsticks are drying out my lips along with the cold weather, but also because it’s the most gorgeous, classic red which is perfect for Christmas. I always find I dig this out on the lead up to winter/Christmas! It’s the shade 3 papaya from Bobbi Brown and it’s a lip treatment lipstick.
I haven’t had much use from this as I got it last year around the Christmas period and left it at my friends for months. When i was collecting up my favourite festive reds for this post I tried it on and fell in love. I will definitely be using this Body Shop red lippy over this festive season for sure! It’s the shade 101.
These last two come as no surprise as I have already raved about them on my blog here! But I had to include them in this post because I have already been using them non stop to don my red lip and I know I will continue to use these through out December! I have these Bourjois Paris liquid lipsticks “Velvet rouge edition” in the shade 08 Grand gru which is a perfect deep red alternative as you can see I have a lot of bright reds so it’s nice to have a darker option. I also have the shade 03 hot pepper which is the classic bright red lip. The staying power from these is incredible and they both create such a beautiful festive lip!
What are your favourite reds? Is there any I should know about and add to my collection?
