The Christmas Beauty: Lip Edition


So since Christmas is well and truly on it's sleigh... see what I did there?! I thought it would be a fun idea to start a festive series which will include my top Christmas beauty picks! And to kick it all off I have decided to start with a personal fav - Lips!

Call me predictable but for me it isn't Christmas if I'm not wearing a red lip. My current go to red combo has been Kate Moss 107 paired with Revlon's lip gloss in Strawberry Fraise. 


107 has been a cult favourite within the beauty community for the last couple of years and for a very good reason. The lipstick is a gorgeous deep matte red and is highly pigmented, so a little goes a very long way. For day time use I like to dab a tiny amount onto the lips and then blend using a lip brush and for evenings out or Christmas parties I like to line my lips and then fill them in straight from the tube for a more intense look. The packaging is sturdy and it's bright colour makes it easy to find when searching for it in my handbag! The thing I love most about it is it's excellent lasting power and the fact that it doesn't bleed - there is nothing worse than a bleeding lipstick... The only downside to the formula is that it can be a little drying so I'd recommend using a lip scrub and an extra hydrating lip balm before and after applying.


Unlike 107, Revlon's Strawberry Fraise hasn't been a name that I've heard many people mention and I honestly don't know why because it is quickly becoming one of my all time favourite lip glosses. The shade is a pink toned red with a slight golden shimmer/ glitter - perfect for Christmas! It is highly pigmented so can be worn on it's own and has a lovely non-sticky consistency.  Normally I like to add a con in here but honestly I have yet to find one! If you can get your hands on this gloss I highly recommend picking it up!

If you would like to see me wearing the lip combo here is a link to a recent Christmas Bauble Haul I did over on my YouTube Channel where I am wearing it!

I hope you enjoyed this first post in my Christmas Beauty series and let me know what your favourite Christmas lip combination is :)
