12 Days Of Slackmas | My Red Lippy Options For Christmas

Thursday, 21 December 2017

I absolutely adore the colour red so being able to implement the luscious shade into my makeup routine is fab. If you've been reading my blog for a little while you'll know I'm a stickler for familiarity so once I find something I love, I keep using it for an eternity. That's why I've only got a small selection to share with you.

L'oreal Colour Riche Matte Lipstick
in "Haute Rouge"
L'oreal do some really great lipsticks so I had to try one of their lovely looking lippys from the rouge collection. I feel like this one looks completely different on different skin tones because on my arm (which is quite pale) it looks more pink whereas when I do a face of bronzed makeup it looks like a proper red shade. That's something to consider if you are quite pale. Other than this, it's a really nice lipstick. It's completely matte and there's no chance of it transferring throughout the day. It's pigmented but you do have to put quite a bit on to get the full colour payoff but once you do, it's a really stunning shade.

NYX Lip Lingerie 
in "Exotic"
I've done a lot of raving about the NYX lip lingeries before but another post won't hurt. I swear by them. The colour pigmentation is incredible, they don't feel dry or flaky and they last absolutely ages. Sometimes too long, it took me a bloody while to get the swatches off my arm. This is a little different to your typical christmas red lip colours just because it's quite dark and muted. There's more of a purply tone to it. I use it all the time though because it's a lot less in your face than other bold reds, so it's great for everyday wear.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet
in "Hot Pepper"
I am IN LOVE with this liquid lipstick. It's like no other I've ever tried before and I wish every liquid lipstick had the same formula. It's so creamy and velvety and the finish has the nicest feeling. It's so soft and dries without feeling sticky or dry. The colour pigmentation is amazing and it's a classic vibrant christmas red that is so easy to wear as an everyday lipstick as well as a going out one too. I bought it as part of the velvet lip kit with the lip liner in "06 Tout Rouge" which is amazing for making sure the colour doesn't bleed. I cannot rave about this more; you just have to try it!!

Do you have any favourite red lip shades for this time of year? I'd love some more recommendations.
