I’m a lover of red lips all year around but I always feel like Christmas is the one perfect occasions for everyone to get that red lippie out of the back of your make up drawers. Since Christmas is coming up in just a few days I thought I’d share some of my favorite lip products for the season with you. Whether you prefer a matte, a cream or a lip gloss I’m sure this includes something for everyone.
Essence Lip Liner in Femme Fatale
I’ve featured this beauty in two previous posts lately but I’ve been using it almost every day and I just think it’s a perfect red for this season. Obviously you can use this liner to just line your lips but I prefer to use it as a lipstick and actually fill in my whole lips with this. It’s incredibly soft and creamy and surprisingly long-wearing. Plus at around 95 cents this is also by far the cheapest option you could possibly find. Like ever!
Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick in 166 Temptation
This lipstick is by far the darkest shade I’m including in this post but I feel like it’s still a shade that is not dark enough to be too intimidating to wear. The color reminds me a bit of red vine and I find it’s just stunning a stunning color. The formula of this lipstick feels quite moisturizing on the lips and it’s very long-lasting. I’ve had this lipstick for quite some time now and I think it might have been discontinued but you can definitely still find it online on Amazon or Ebay.
Sephora Cream Lip Stain in Always Red
This one might actually be one of my favorite lip products ever. First of all it’s a perfect classic red shade with blue undertones, which suits my complexion best, it’s matte but not drying at all and incredibly long-lasting. It’s nearly perfection. If there’s one thing you need to get from Sephora it’s this one. Seriously though, this cream lip stain is amazing and if I ever want a matte red lip that needs to stay on, this is the product I’m reaching for without a doubt.
Mac Ruby Woo
I feel like I don’t even need to explain this one. Ruby Woo is definitely one of Mac’s cult lipsticks and I’m pretty sure everyone that’s ever been somewhat interested in make up has heard of this lipstick. It’s just the most classic red that suits almost every skins type. Some people are not so happy with the formulation as this lipstick is known to be a bit drying but whenever I want to wear this I use a good old lip scrub and apply a nourishing lip balm before applying Ruby Woo and I’m good to go and can enjoy this lipstick without it drying out my lips.
Chanel Lip Gloss in 106
In general I’m not much of a lip gloss fan but this one is absolutely gorgeous. I bought this for my high school graduation in the summer of 2013 and so many people complimented me on it. It’s more of a cherry red and it’s pretty glittery as it includes stunning golden shimmer particles. Despite many other glosses this one is not sticky at all and feels so nice on the lips. But considering it’s Chanel and the price you have to pay for this I wouldn’t expect anything less. So if you’re into lip glosses and you like to play it down a bit this might be one to look into.
