I love a red lip all year round, but it always feels good to have the ready-made excuse of winter/Christmas to rock them even more than usual. I have said before that orange-toned reds are the ones that suit me best'; three out of four of these are of this type and one is a lovely darker pink/red.
So, to start of there is the Charlotte Tilbury lipstick in the shade 1975 Red. I couldn't have a lipstick post without including one of hers could I?! I love the brand so much and think the formula of the lipsticks is perfect; this shade is a bright red with a matte finish.
Then we have MAC Dangerous, which as you can see from the swatch is a shade lighter than the first and also more orange. This one also has a matte finish and I love wearing this with bold black eyes.
Another MAC favourite is All Fired Up, which is the darker pink red of the bunch. This one reminds me of red wine, and I love to wear it when I have a bit of a tan and coppery eyes.
Maybelline Color Drama lip pencil in Fab Orange is a great drugstore dupe for MAC Dangerous, but I love using this because the pencil style makes it easy to apply and means I can make my lips a bit fuller if I want.
What are your favourite shades for this time of year? Do you like any of these? xx
