Welcome back to day 11 of my 12 Days of Christmas posts. Today’s post is going to be short and sweet! What usually comes to mind when you think of Christmas makeup? Well for me it would have to be a beautiful holiday red lipstick. I have gathered up all the red lipsticks in my collection and I am putting them to the test in order to find the perfect red for this Christmas Day!
*Some products mentioned were generously sent to me for free to test out and share with you guys, all of these products will be clearly marked*
ColourPop’s Cruella Lux Lipstick is our first contender. This lipstick is a bright pop of orange-red with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. This is such a beautiful shade and I think it is just the right pop of brightness for the Australian summer! The only downside to this beautiful lipstick is that it would not last through all the eating and drinking that will be happening on Christmas Day so reapplication will be a must.
Fenty Beauty’s Stunna Lip Paint in the shade Uncensored is the most stunning neutral-toned, medium red with a matte finish. I love anything with a matte finish as it means that it will hold its pigmentation on the lips a lot longer than cream or gloss products. Matte lipsticks are also perfect for times when you are eating or drinking, like you would be on Christmas Day, as they dry down and take a lot more than a summer cocktail to wear off.
Burmese Dream’s Liquid Lipstick in the shade Rangoon is another stunning red option for this Christmas Day. This lipstick is a slightly warm-toned, medium burgundy with a velvet matte finish. Now this shade is deeper than the others but is still a beautiful red option. This one is very similar to a shade I wore on Christmas last year too! The velvet matte finish is more comfortable compared to a complete matte shade, but it could also mean that the wear time will be shorter and there is a higher chance of transfer. *This product was sent to me for free*
The verdict is in, and I think I will be going with Fenty Beauty’s Stunna Lip Paint in the shade Uncensored! I feel comfortable with a matte lipstick and knowing that it is likely to last all day without reapplication is a win for me!
