Blogmas Day 5: The Christmas Red Lip...

A Red Lip around Christmas is no unusual occurrence. But with so many shades and finishes it's difficult to pick one to wear! So to help I've picked and shared my top three Christmas Red Lips!

1. Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Hot Pepper 3:
This  True Red Matte Shade is versatile as it can be worn comfortably during the day as well as into the night. It lasts several hours on the lip and despite being matte is very comfortable and not drying at all. It's definitely a winner for easy application although you do have to wait a while for it to dry and become matte!

This darker red shade is perfect for parties! The colour makes teeth look whiter and brighter and is flattering to all skin tones. Although the sheen makes the colour look great on the lips and is very moisturising it means that it can wear off quite quickly. The lack of longevity means it's best not to use this for dinner parties or for long events where reapplication isn't possible. (See it on the lips here)

This Bright almost Coral-ey shade is a great day time colour. It adds a bright pop of colour without being too fancy. When applied it does tend to cling to dry patches as it is VERY matte however this can be avoided with either a lip scrub or using a lip balm and blotting before application.

What's your favourite Christmas Red Lip?
