MERRY CHRISTMAS!! (a day late) and Happy Holidays! At first when thinking of what I could post about I was thinking of doing some of my favorite presents I got this year, or some of my favorite holiday traditions that take place in my family, or how much I love the holidays and it’s not that those things wouldn’t be fun or that they aren’t meaningful, but then I bought this red lip stick and fell in love and new I had to share it with you.
I am not a big lipstick wearer, I focus on my eyes and always do a natural lip (usually just lip gloss, sometimes a nude colored gloss/stick, but that it). I got the idea in my head this year that it would be fun to do a super bold red lip for Christmas. I mean I see people pull them off all over the place and they look so good, and I’d never tried it.
So off to Ulta I go. At first I was just looking at the cheaper brands (drugstore brands) but you can’t test any of those out like you can the ‘fancy’/prestige brands. So I started testing some out just to see if I could determine what type of red would look good on me. Blue undertones, darker red, cherry red, etc…..
Then I tried this baby:
You guys. It goes on like a gloss, stays wet for about 2 minutes (so you can fix any mistakes 🙂 ) and then dries matte and gorgeous and WILL NOT BUDGE ALL DAY.
I was debating between two shades of red and ended up going with Beso (vs. Fiery). The difference is Beso is more of a ‘true’ red (think cherry red/Taylor Swift red) and Fiery is a slightly darker red. Anyway, I snatched it up pronto!
I love doing people’s makeup so I did my sisters make up for Christmas eve and did the bold lip and she looked GORG! and then I did the look for myself on Christmas day. Here are some pictures.
Sooooo if you’re looking to try a new look or you need a new lipstick or just another lip stick. I 100000000% highly recommend that you give this a try. You can find it at Sephora, or Ulta, or Stila‘s site or my fav, Amazon and not each one has all the color selections and I’m sure you can find it other places too- but those are a few good places to start.
Hope you enjoy as much as me! Also hope you all had a wonderful Holidays and cherished moments with loved ones!
