Lipsticks for the Festive Season



Now then, to end my little series of Holiday makeup, I'll show you my picks of lipsticks which I can see myself wearing during December. I'm generally way more of a lipstick girl than a lip gloss girl, because my long hair doesn't get along with sticky lip glosses. Oh the hard decisions of life: to cut my hair short or to give up lip gloss. Jookes!


As for my picks, I chose a celebrity red first. Nothing beats the elegancy of a red lip and Rouge Dior in the shade 999 does exactly that more than well. Although deeper reds seem more suitable for nails, the redist red is best for the lips in my opinion. 

I also went for two lip crayons, which are very very similar to each other and I only noticed it after I started taking pictures. But hooray for finding a dupe! The Nars Satin Lip Pencil I own was Sephora's birthday present for Beauty Insider's this year and it's in the shade Rikugien. It's a shimmery dark pink shade and so creamy you wouldn't believe it. It stays on all night too! But if you're looking for something cheaper, I'd definitely recommend the Revlon Colourburst Balm Stain in 001 Honey Douce. The shade is slightly cooler than Rikugien and you might have to apply it a couple of times more during an evening, but it's still ever so pretty and, as I said, affordable too! 



So what did you think of my lipstick picks? Which one would you go for?

I hope you've enjoyed my little series. I'm afraid Holiday themed posts won't end here though. Quite the opposite since it will be December next week. Can you believe that?

Have a lovely week lovelies <3

  2. I'm in the same boat as you! I love the look of shiny lipglosses or lipsticks but my hair gets stuck in it so matte it is! Love the festive bright red for the holidays and the other natural colors you chose here. The Sephora birthday gift this year was amazing! Glad you're putting it to use :) Hope your day is going well!

  5. I love a good red all year round, but now that Christmas is approaching I enjoy it even more. At the moment I am wearing a Manhattan one the most, but I cant remember the awkward number it has instead of a name from the top of my head.

    1. 999 is just the perfect red in my opinion too! Plus the quality is just amazing of course. I'm sure it would stay on through Christmas dinner easily. I hope you have a lovely weekend xxx
