Red lipstick and Christmas just goes hand in hand, and I definitely have a lot of favourite reds! I do, however, also like to branch out into dusty rose shades over Christmas. Although they aren’t the classic shade I still think they work beautifully. Here’s my favourite lipsticks for Christmas!
Rimmel London ‘The Only 1’ Matte Lipstick in ‘Take The Stage’
I’ve talked about this lipstick so much on my website, but I just really love how amazing this formula is. Although it’s matte it still feels really moisturising, but it also lasts a really long time. This shade is a perfect, true red that works so well at Christmas – I absolutely adore it.
MAC Lipstick in ‘Cockney’
Lipsticks are what MAC are famous for, and this shade is so stunning for Christmas. This lipstick has a lustre finish which I love – the glitter in this makes it extra Christmassy!
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in ‘Dolce Vita’
Although this isn’t the typical red, this dusty-rose works beautifully during the festive period. It’s subtle enough to pair well with sparkly eye makeup, so you can experiment with different looks over Christmas. The finish of this is also stunning, it’s super matte but isn’t too drying, I’d definitely recommend it.
Maybelline Color Drama Lipstick in ‘Red Essential’
This is another lipstick I’ve talked about on my blog before, and it’s so perfect for Christmas. It’s a great dupe for the NARS Lip Pencils, and the shade is a gorgeous blue-toned red that would work beautifully on any skin tone.
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in ‘Double Dare’
This is probably my favourite Kat Von D liquid lipstick that I own, and the deep nude shade works really well for Christmas. Although this is a little darker than the NARS ‘Dolce Vita’ Lip Pencil, it’s still subtle enough to be able to amp up your eye makeup without looking too intense.
My Little Beauty Encre à lèvres Red Dingue
I received this liquid lipstick in one of my ‘My Little Box’ beauty boxes and I loved it immediately. Although their shop doesn’t currently ship to the U.K. (they’re working on it), I still wanted to mention this lipstick because it’s such a great red for Christmas, and it’s super long lasting – even through Christmas dinner!
So those are my favourite lipsticks for Christmas! I hope you enjoyed this post, let me know in the comments what your favourite lipsticks for Christmas are. See you tomorrow for day eight of Blogmas!
