I love a red lip and there’s no better time to wear one than at Christmas! I’ve put together a selection of refs for all occasions!
The subtle one:
Is my Laura Mercier lip gloss. It gives a subtle wash of colour and small glitter flecks give it that extra dazzle.
The melted one:
Possible the most light weight of them all with a satin finish this gem is a pink based red that would look stunning with pretty much anything! No lip liner is needed.
Liya’s red is gorgeous, again more of a pink based red and isn’t a complete matte finish and looks
This little Laura Mercier number is more of a classic red with a cream finish. This has more staying power with a lip liner but can be worn without.
The L’Oreal Gold Obsession is an orange based red with gold shimmer running through it. It looks as though you’ve put effort in! Again this doesn’t need a lip liner and is a cream finish.
This Bourjois is a deep dark red and ideally needs a liner otherwise the application is patchy. The finish is meant to be matte and mostly is but takes a while to dry completely matte I’ve found. It also comes out darker than the picture shows!
Last but not least is ‘vintage’ a purple tinged dark red with a matte finish. No lip liner is needed as it doesn’t apply patchy and dries quickly but is prone to a bit of flaking after a few hours of wear.
