I don’t know about you but Christmas this year just seems to be even more exciting than normal and a lot more festive than usual! From the range of advent calendars that have been up for offer, the decorations, the gift ideas – this season’s festivity just seems to be at it’s max. I also feel as though, Christmas this year has come a lot earlier than usual? Christmas tree’s were going up earlier, people were Christmas shopping before the mad rush hits and Christmas songs have been playing in shops now for a good few weeks. It has honestly been so exciting!! I love it.
With this years festivity being larger than usual, I wanted to share my five favourite festive lippies, just to lend a helping hand to any of you who are maybe a little unsure of which lipstick to go for. Whether you’re preparing for an exciting Christmas party, a ‘works-do’ or even thinking of hitting Winter Wonderland, I think ones choice of makeup is just another way of really getting into the festive spirit!
SHADES (L-R): CHARLOTTE TILBURY (VELVET UNDERGROUND) • CHARLOTTE TILBURY (SO MARILYN) • NO7 (CONQUER) • DIOR KHOL (VIBRANT TOURMALINE) • TOM FORD (INDIAN ROSE).
Dior Khol Lipstick – Vibrant Tourmaline (671)
To create a post on my five favourite festive lippies and not include this lipstick would honestly be a sacrilege… It is bright, it is bold – YES it is incredibly fun AND it has one absolutely beautiful formula!
Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick – So Marilyn
Every makeup collection needs “the perfect red” in my opinion, and for me, this is that red. I love the deep, almost blood toned intensity that this classic red lipstick has with it. It is rich, it is sophisticated and just the perfect essential for any look when you want your inner ‘GIRL BOSS’ to shine through.
Tom Ford Lip Color – Indian Rose (04)
To be fair, this is a lip colour that I would happily and comfortably wear throughout the entire year because it is such a classic rose toned nude in my opinion. I adore the creamy, soft and slightly moisturising formula that Tom Ford lipsticks, like this, have, as they are incredibly comfortable to wear but also utterly flattering too!
No7 Matte Liquid Lipstick – Conquer
For all of you matte liquid lipstick lovers out there, this one is for you.
Not all that long ago now, No7 released a beautiful collection of affordable matte liquid lipsticks, ranging from a few different pinks to this beautiful deep berry toned red! Their formula is smooth, incredibly soft and just lovely and creamy in my opinion. The liquid lipstick itself also applies gently onto the lips with a slightly glossy finish, although after a workable few minutes, the matte finish definitely becomes visible in both finish and texture on ones lips!
Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick – Velvet Underground
What shouts Christmas better than a bright, beautiful magenta? This lipstick by Charlotte Tilbury applies incredibly effortlessly onto the lips, leaving a rich, pigmented, and creamy finish!
Now I know that this lip colour in particular may seem very similar, if not identical, to “Vibrant Tourmaline” by Dior, which was, of course, mentioned earlier – although, rest assured that this lipstick is different with regards to it’s finish, as “Velvet Underground” gives the lips a much more creamier, sheen, whereas “Vibrant Tourmaline” by Dior is definitely a much more matte finish lipstick in my opinion.
Which is your favourite lip colour from my small collection?
