A Few of My Favourite Things: Festive Red Lip Shades

Hello Gals!

I am a huge fan of red lip shades, not only are they always on trend, they are elegant, versatile and have the ability to glamorize your entire look. Red lip shades also give  a dramatic effect without actually having to wear a ton of makeup. 

For those reasons alone,  I feel that a red lip shade should be a key item in every gals holiday party makeup arsenal.

The stunning red lip shades that I am currently rotating this festive season are shades that are richly pigmented and instantly make me feel glamorous, elegant and totally chic every time I swipe them across my lips.


Prism Glossy Gloss "Seductress"

Let's start with "Seductress", my all time favourite red lip gloss shade...no surprise there lol. In all fairness, even though this is my own brand, the formula of this vanilla scented full coverage gloss is truly remarkable; it's moisturizing, creamy, super pigmented and has a gorgeous high shine finish
This vibrant shade is a striking deep blue toned red that adds richness and sophistication to my entire look, which makes it the perfect accompaniment to my LBD (little black dress)

Lime Crime "Retrofuturist"

For years Retrofuturist, has been a staple in my red lip collection. It is a wearable bold true red that is neither yellow nor blue in tone, which makes it flattering on all skin tones. 
The formula gives a gorgeous full opaque coverage and because a lip stain has been cleverly incorporated into the mix, wear time is increased. So this means that you can nibble and sip on champagne without the fear of your  lipstick migrating.

Maybelline New Colour Sensational Vivids "895 On Fire Red"
  
"On Fire Red" is the newest addition to my red lipstick collection this season.  The buttery formula is a dream as it contains honey nectar which makes my lips feel extremely comfortable and nourished
This beautiful red has a slight neon note which makes for a vibrant finish however, because it applies quite sheer, it can be worn casually in a more informal setting or it can be amped up by building up the layers to achieve deeper pigmentation suitable for any glam occasion.

  5. I don't have On Fire Red but I adore Are You Red-dy! I wanted to purchase Lime Crime some time last year or earlier this year but with the problems/scandals, I avoided it.

  6. Red is def a festive color. I don't wear it often but when I want to add a little bit extra to an outfit I add a pop of red on the lip. Especially during the holidays. My favorites are Rimmel Lip Lacquer in Big Bang and ColourPop Lippie Stix and Pencil in Frenchie.

  9. OH I love each of these for a different reason. I only own one red lip color for personal use it is Cruela by Nars. I feel too loud when I wear red but always get compliments so I am torn.

  21. A red lip and holiday parties go hand in hand!!
    I love a good red lip but I always have a hard time finding one shade of red that I don't have to mix with something to achieve the perfect colour. That being said I really love your seductress it's such a great shade of red. It should be in my rotation. Do you ship to Canada?
