Red lips have a soft spot in my life – They were my first foray in to the world of bold lips, however, I will admit they have taken a little bit of a backseat so what better time to fix this situation out by going through my red lips for the festive season.
Colourpop Liquid Lipstick in the shade Avenue
This is an old school favourite but one which comes out repeatedly. When I am in the mood for a red lip, this is the first one which springs to mind. Colourpop is hard to get ahold off in the UK but they do ship quite easily to the UK. I did a big shop a while ago to give you some ideas of the other shades to pick up.
NARS Lipstick in the shade VIP Red
I haven’t really featured NARS on the blog for a while – but their lip products always have a special place in my heart. VIP Red was part of one of their limited edition shades and it has been a firm favourites. Its a Semi Matte – it is incredibly pigmented and matte but the addition of Vitamin E prevents it from being drying on the lips. NARS Re-release shades so keep an eye out incase this makes a comeback.
Kat Von D Ever Lasting Liquid Lipstick in the shade Nosferatu
This one is actually a shade I have yet to own but one I am gravitating towards. You all know I love the formula of the Kat Von D Ever Lasting Liquid Lipsticks and would quite happily purchase the entire collection. The shade Nosferatu is a stunning deep red which would be a great addition to the festive season.
Huda Beauty Lip Liner in the shade Cheerleader
If you are looking for a lip which is a little bit blue toned, the shade Cheerleader from Huda Beauty is one of my favourites. I have the accompanying liquid lipstick to go with this, however the lip liner is a personal favourite of mine to layer under a variety of red lipsticks. A festive lip should always include a lip liner and this is one of my favourites. it glides easily lips, is long lasting and sharpens well.
NYX Liquid Suedes in the shade Cherries In The Skies
Again, another firm favourite of mine – This is one which I know will withstand heavy mountains and food and drink without me having to worry it will get messy. A total staple for me when I am looking for a special occasion lip.
Some of these are long standing favourites but there are some new additions to the red lip line up in my collection too from different shades of red. Do you have red lip favourites? Let me know.
