Christmas is a time to experiment, with food, clothing and make up. Lipstick is my favourite item of make up; it can transform a make up look from day to night in a swish of colour. So it's no surprise that I am doing my favourite lipsticks around Christmas time! My favourites to wear during the Christmas period are reds, all different kinds of reds that compliment and complete an outfit.
Here are My Top 5 Lipsticks for Christmas:
From Left to Right: Channel Rouge Noir, Estee Lauder Fig, MAC Sin, Nars Red Lizard, WetnWild Cherry Picking.
Number 5: Frist is a lipstick from 'Wet n Wild' a cheaper brand with quality products at affordable prices. The colour is called Cherry Picking; it's the only colour that has an undertone of pink in my top 5. It's very beautiful and gives an excellent pop of colour to a natural look.
Number 4: Next up is my 'Nars' Red Lizard, the colour is verging on Vamp red but it is not too dark. The formulation is lovely; it stays like a matte lipstick but does not feel overly dry on the lips.
Number 3: Is MAC's matte lipstick in the colour Sin. This one is a vamp red all the way, it's very dark and very matte. I would not dare to apply this without first using a lip liner and I've been loving the dark red lip with a high neck black jumper.
Number 2: This lipstick I purchased last Christmas and love, it's by Estee Luader and it is in the colour Fig. Unlike the majority of these lipsticks this one is definitely not matte, it glides on beautifully and is a very lovely red. It has lovely warm undertones – perfect for Christmas time!
Number 1: The final lipstick is Rouge Noir by Chanel. My favourite colour for Christmas, it's super dark and beautiful. It is very similar to MAC's Sin, but I prefer the formulation of this lipstick as I find the MAC one can sometimes settle into the fine lines in my lips. This lipstick is just simply stunning an perfect for Christmas parties!
