Festive Lip Picks


Hello all, thought I would create a little Christmas party inspiration here on the blog and give you all a look at some of my favourite lip products for this time of year! Everyone knows that come December that 'less is more' is a phrase of the past and it suddenly becomes all about the glitter, the smokey eye, and the bold lip! 

First up is the budget option which is Make Up Revolution Lipstick in the shade Reckless. This is just the most perfect colour if you want a variation of the classic red lip, which is slightly more vampy or if you like a bit of sheen to it! Despite the very small price tag these look gorgeous on the lips, and are also super long lasting. I would say the finish is glossy, which I personally prefer over matte when it comes to party looks! 

Next I have Dolce and Gabanna Passion Duo Gloss Fusion Lipstick in the shade Intense, which is a really dark brown with just a hint of berry to it! I chose this because I think this looks amazing with pale skin, and lets face it, most of us are a little pale in winter! The formula is great as it has a balm in the middle to keep lips soft and hydrated and lots of very pigmented colour surrounding it! So its definitely practical as well as pretty! 

Lastly, I have selected the colour Heartful from the British Beauty Blogger Lip Trio Set, which I reviewed here. I like this because its much softer than a normal lipstick so is perfect for those of us who prefer sheer colour rather than a full on power lip. This is a bright bold red which looks quite fun and retro, and I can only imagine it looking effortlessly cool avec black winged eyeliner. 

What are you guys favourite lip products for the festive season?

  1. The D&G lippy isn't a shade I would usually pick for myself but I'm tempted to see if I can find a cheaper alternative to give it a go! At this time of year I love Rimmel's Kate Moss range in 01 and 107 or Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Nude-ist x

  6. Gorgeous picks, I didn't know that BBB had released a makeup line? I've obviously been living under a rock, that shade looks stunning. A/W lipsticks are my faves darker colours suit me way better than the peachy tones we see in Spring/Summer :) xx
