the Red Lip rundown

Now we are in  December, we are bound to have plenty of celebrations and parties. Some may be on a empty Saturday evening, so you can start your beauty regime mid-day with a luxurious soak etc and look preened and fabulous when you step through the doors. Others may be right after work, or that important meeting (or that guilty pleasure tv show you just cannot miss) and you find yourself getting ready faster than Wile e Coyote. Whatever your time frame is something which will always make you look pulled together is a bold lip, and what colour is more christmassy than red?. So I selected 3 reds each with a different finish and thought I would give you my thoughts. I apologise in advance for no-make up skin, it was just one of those days y'know?

As can be seen we have a glossy pink toned red, a matte pillarbox red and a gorgeous shimmer lipgloss to either layer on top or use alone as I did. A colour and finish to suit everyone.

The Yves Rocher was a dream to apply, very smooth and slick, though I found it highlighted imperfections and flaky skin. With it's sheer finish it would be perfect for those trying to build up their confidence with bold lips.

 Next up is an offering from Rimmel, a bold lip for the bold vixen in all of us, this is sure to get you noticed. As with all matte lipsticks a good slick of balm is handy to put on before.

 Lastly we have a lipgloss from No. 7, complete with christmas-tastic shimmer and a soft-not-too-sticky consistency this is sure to add some glam to any look.
