Whenever I think of a bold red lipstick I immediately think of Christmas as they seem to go so well together. If you’ve got a party to go to then a red lip adds an element of class to an all black outfit, just add a pair of heels, grab a clutch bag and you’re good to go.
You can’t go wrong with a classic red lip and these are my favourite three that will see me through December and well into the New Year.
Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution – shade Bond Girl
This is probably not your typical party red, I think it’s more suited to day time events or a family get together over the festive period. Bond Girl is a gorgeous red brown shades in a matte formula that doesn’t dry out my lips, it’s easy to apply and incredibly long wearing. I find this isn’t too in your face for meeting the girls for a lunch date, so this lipstick will get a lot of use over the next few months.
Too Faced Melted Matte Liquified Lipstick – shade Lady Balls
This liquid lipstick just oozes glamour and as the name might suggested you’ve got have the confidence to wear it, trust me to choose a bright, bold red as my very first Too Faced lipstick. The sponge applicator and long wand makes it glide on. It’s super pigmented and dries quite quickly into matte formula, so I would suggest using a lip liner with this one. It’s the perfect red lipstick for a night out and sipping on few cocktails as it will see you through till well past midnight.
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick – shade Temper
For someone who never used to be a fan of matte lip products I now have quite a few in my collection. Temper is a real vibrant red and probably not as long lasting as the other two but it’s a soft, creamy matte. Although it’s the brightest red I own I still find it wearable for any time of day and one coat is all you need for a true statement lip.
I absolutely love all three of these red lipsticks, they are on the more expensive side but after finding the right shade for me I think they’re definitely worth it.
I also love a good highlighter for my party makeup look. If you’d like to find out which ones are my current favourites, I’ll leave the link here.
