Christmas Reds

Nothing beats a red lipstick at Christmas time, it's the ultimate colour for Christmas. Here's a selection of reds from my make-up collection. Most of them are from the drugstore so this post is fairly budget  friendly - handy at this time of year!

There are two matte shades, and two that are more glossy. The Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in 'Standout' is a beautiful cherry red. It lasts for ages which is great for those Christmas parties. For £7.99, you can't really go wrong for an amazing (affordable) Christmas red. I wear this one the most so it's my personal favourite.

If you'd like to opt for a brighter red, Bourjois' Rouge Edition Velvet in 'Hot Pepper' is a great alternative. The applicator makes it really easy to apply and you get plenty of colour with one coat. It's not as long lasting as the Revlon balm, but nothing to worry about too much. Luckily, one thing both of these products have in common is that they don't dry out your lips, nothing worse than chapped lips in the winter! (But it's probably best to apply lip balm beforehand anyway!)

Moving onto the glossy reds, I love this No7 High Shine Lip Crayon in 'Statement'. It's shiny and has tiny flecks of glitter, which can be nice at Christmas. However, the shimmer is very subtle so don't be too put off. The colour is obviously red but I've noticed that it has a slight pink undertone to it. As well as that, the formula feels nice and moisturising on the lips.

We finish with the only high end edition to the collection. This is one of Clinique's Colour Pop Lipsticks in 'Cherry Pop'. It's amazing. As you might be able to guess, it's a pure cherry red which is so gorgeous. The creamy formula is so nice and the packaging looks really sophisticated. I got as a gift from a magazine about a month ago, but you can by the full size one here.
