As Christmas arrives and all the party invites start coming in, so does the search for some perfect colours to complete your makeup and outfits for these festivities. Especially if you’re waiting for that special someone to kiss you under the mistletoe, you better have your lips looking lush! Here are my top 4 picks for the must have lip shades this Christmas.
Max Factor- Star Wars-Special Edition- Gold (£8.99)
This unique metallic gold lipstick was inspired by the droid C-3PO, just in time for the new Star Wars film for any fans out there. There are two looks you can achieve with this lipstick. The first one is a subtle shimmery gold tinted look, just apply one or two coats over your lips. The second one is a full on rich glossy gold lip, apply many coats to achieve this, and to make the gold stand out, line the outside of your lips with a concealer. You’ll look luminous and attain a glowing aura throughout any party.
Makeup Revolution- Atomic Lipstick Line- Serpent (£4.99)
This gorgeous dark green lipstick is a festive yet classy colour for Christmas. It has a moisturising creamy feel to it, and has a shiny semi-matte finish.The texture is a bit thin, so multiple coats should be applied to obtain a luscious deep green shade.
The dark green will come off looking quite matte, but it has a smooth glossy finish. As one of the prime colours of Christmas, its’ going to be an easy job matching this lipstick with festive sweaters and outfits. It’s an edgy daring look to pull off, but a guaranteed head turner at any event you wear it to.
Revlon- Super Lustrous- Cherry Blossom (£7.99)
This classic dark red shade is a popular choice in the winter season because it stands out in the dull winter months and is a flattering shade for any skin tone. Cherry Blossom is a moisturising lipstick as is most of Revlon’s lip products, with a sleek semi-matte finish and a bit of shine for a bright velvety look. Red is another prime colour of Christmas and will go with almost any themed or festive outfit you choose to wear for every occasion.
MAC- Lady Danger (£15.50)
This red orange shade, Lady Danger has been a very popular one in the UK, it’s a fresh twist from the classic red that everyone loves wearing. Like all MAC lipsticks, it smells like vanilla and has a smooth saturated matte finish which goes incredibly well with dark winter fashion. The orangey brown undertones make your lips really pop and screams danger when paired with black eyeliner. The colour stains and will stay on for a long time, even through food and drink which makes it a great lipstick for all those Christmas and New Year parties you’re planning on going to.
