Red Lips For Christmas: My Picks

 It's practically Christmas, you guys! I'm super excited. And Christmas for me=red lipstick.  So here are my top picks for perfect red lips on Christmas (or New Year's, or whenever, really).

My absolute favourite of the lot would have to be the MAC Viva Glam 1. It's a gorgeous true red, that's a little bit on the darker side without being too dark. It's a matte formula which I LOVE, since I love the look of a matte red lip. It is a tad bit drying, but with a touch of lip balm underneath, it's perfect!
 Next is another much loved lipstick, the Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in 111 Kiss of Life. This one is sadly not available in India yet, but for those of you who do have this available to you, you need to give this a go. This, too, has a matte formula but it isn't as drying as a MAC, and it's way more reasonably priced. The colour of this one is a bit brighter and leaning a little bit towards the cool side. But it still suits me alright, despite the fact that I have warm toned skin.
 (On a side note, Rimmel released their Apocalips line in India. I literally wanted to cry when I saw them on the stands. I absolutely LOVE that product and cannot wait to get more of it! I have my eye on Stellar and Apocalyptic for now.)

  Third is actually my sister's favourite. It is Faces' Lipstick in Poppy Red. My sister absolutely adores this one and I think it's great, too, especially for those of you who don't like your lipstick matte. It's the warmest orange toned red of the lot. And what's even better is that it's super inexpensive. Plus, she got this one on an offer so that one good bargain.
  And lastly, here's a rather new addition to my collection. This is the Faces Lip Liner in Indian Red. Quite appropriately named, this is a gorgeous warm red. I bought this so I can have better precision with my lipstick application and this looks especially amazing with MAC's Viva Glam 1. But even on its own, with some lip balm underneath (or gloss, if you like) it works great and you can be super precise with your application.

 And that will be all for this post. I think I will go with the lip liner and Viva Glam 1 on Christmas Eve (which is in a few hours!) What lipstick will you be sporting?
