My Favourite Red Lipsticks For The Festive Season


It is that time of the year again where we get to spend two days (in my case being Portuguese) with all our family, we spend time sitting around chatting, playing games, watching Christmas movies and eating…..and eating some more. This is my favourite time of the year even though its just madness going out and doing Christmas shopping! Its been extremely hot the last week, more than usual, deep inside I wish I could wear all those cheesy jerseys I see all the overseas bloggers wearing.

With the spirit of the season I thought I would share my favourite red lipstick selection. Red lips are something you can rock anytime and they really do make a bold statement. You need to make sure you pick the right shade of red. Some of my selections below are slightly on the pink side. This is perfect for people who do not think they can pull off a beautiful bright lip!

I made sure I had to include all my affordable options of my favourite lipsticks (I had to sneak in a lip gloss and a few lip balm’s) My selection ranges from high end to drug store which means that they are suitable for all budgets. These are all from my lipstick collection which mean they have been tried and tested. On a side note, these make perfect little gifts for stocking fillers  – just saying!


  • MAC – Matte “La Vie En Rouge


  • Loreal – Color Riche JLo’s Pure Red


  • Elizabeth Arden – Red Door Red


Lip gloss:

  • Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet #02


Lip balm:

  •  Maybelline Baby lips “Cherry Me”


  • GOSH – “Kiss me”  #05 “Irresistible Kiss”


  • Revlon Colourburst Matt Balm #240 “Striking Spectaculaire”


Hope my selection is helpful and that you find a shade that looks beautiful on you.  Leave me a comment below if you have any recommendations for lipsticks I need to try.

Happy Christmas Eve.
