Festive Reds

Festive Reds
Apart from the cosy knitted socks, over sized jumpers and lots of LUSH baths, another reason why I love the festive season is I am able to pick and choose between my dark lipsticks. Red is such a classic Christmassy colour to wear, I usually sway more towards purple lips in winter, but this year I have decided to rock the red more. Today I am sharing with you my top 5 festive red lipsticks!

Chanel 'Arthur' Hydrating Lipstick* - This is such a classic shade of red that is perfect for both day and night wear. What I love about this lipstick is how hydrating it feels sometimes, it can be a bit of a chore finding a lipstick that hydrates really well. The colour is so pigmented and long lasting, which is perfect because topping up red lipstick can take awhile!

Nars Lip Pencils 'Cruella' & 'Iberico' - I never really understood the concept of lip pencils, these to me seem a bit more like a thin version of a chubby stick. I feel as though I have more control using these lip pencils than I do with a lipstick, they are incredibly easy and quick to apply. I find these so long lasting and the pigmentation is stunning - a little goes a long way. Cruella is definitely a more of a deep red, perfect for festive occasions whereas Iberico is a little bit more perfect for daytime wear.

Rimmel Kate Moss Lipsticks '12' & '01' - I've always been a huge fan of Kate Moss lipsticks as they last such a long time! Number 12 is a cheaper alternative to the Nars 'Iberico' shade and 01 is definitely your classic, deep red wine shade, perfect on Christmas Day. These are inexpensive and easier to pick up compared to Nars and Chanel and I find they moisturize your lips a little bit more.

What is your go-to Festive Red??

  2. I love the Rimmel Kate Moss Lipsticks! I only own very few and the only dark on is my trusty 107 which is gorgeous. I definitely need to look into the classic red shades from that range too!

  3. I must admit, the Kate moss lipsticks have never let me down and they really are my guilty pleasure. For those who don't like splurging on expensive lippies they're perfect! Love a good red.
