Red Lip Season

December 2, 2016 , In: Beauty , With: 4 Comments

Seeing as it is now December, I think red lip season has officially begun!  I feel like it is impossible to create a festive holiday makeup look without the perfect red lip color to go with it!  These are some of the red lip colors that I love.

mac-redMy go-to red color for years now has been the Mac lipstick in the shade Mac Red.  This is just such a perfect true red shade with a slight blue undertone.  This is one of their satin lipsticks, so it is super creamy and is super comfortable to wear on the lips.  I love this lipstick, and as I said I have been wearing it for years, and I think it will always be one of my all time favorites!

coloupop-frenchieThe ColourPop Lippie Stix in Frenchie is another great go-to shade for me.  This again is such a great true matte red color, perfect for any makeup look.  I also just adore the name of this lipstick… it’s so cute!

rimmel-lipstick-11Another great red lip color is the Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in number 11.  This is a little bit of a darker, deeper red shade.  It’s a little bit more dramatic, but it is such a pretty color to wear with a dark smokey eye for a night out… I love it!

stila-lip-glossI really like this Stila Stay All Day Vinyl Lip Gloss in the shade Poppy, for when I want to have a glossy lip. I love this color because it’s a brighter red, with more of an orange undertone.  This is a really pigmented gloss that will actually stay on your lips ALL day.  It is a little bit sticky for a gloss, but I love how long wearing it is, and the color is just beautiful.  Sometimes, I will wear this one overtop of a red lipstick if I am in the mood to have a glossy lip.

ciate-divaAnd Lastly, is the Ciate Liquid Velvet in the shade Diva.  I got this in my ipsy bag last month, and as soon as I opened it I knew I would love it.  It’s such a great long wearing product, it reminds me a little bit of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams, which I also love!
