Options for a Winter Red...


If there's any time of year to be bold and go for the classic red lip, its winter time! Red is just perfect for this time of year, its classic, its sexy and I really think the right shade of red can make anyone look glamorous! 

Being the palest of the pale, I find it quite difficult to pull off a red without looking too much like a lady of the night, if you catch my drift. But these 4 options for me are a brilliant wearable red perfect for the festive season and for paler girls too! 


The quality of this lip lacquer is out of this world. A stunning deep berry red is perfect for darker haired girls and I think is definitely the most sexiest shade of the bunch. The formula is super thick and creamy, its super pigmented and sticks around all day. This would be perfect for a night out or if your going for a meal. Even after eating, maybe the glossiness has gone but your lips are still stained with the gorgeous deep colour. I can't rave about the Apocalips line enough! 


Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Meritage 

This pencil is the most wearable of the bunch. This pencil is super hydrating and feels absolutely amazing on the lips, and the build able colour can go from 'my lips but better' to a gorgeous plumb / red shade. This is perfect for my particular skin and hair colour - I just love it. I wish that Bite Beauty was more freely available in the UK, because I'd definitely be snapping up more of these! I try to wear this as much as I can as a day colour, it's just perfect. 




Wet n Wild MegaSlicks Balm Stain Moisturizing Lip Color, Red-Dy or Not $2.99

This is another super easy to wear red - probably the brightest of the lot but still really easy on the lips. The balm formula makes it really easy to wear, and we all know how difficult it can be to wear lippie in the colder winter months. 

Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Infrared 

 This is the bravest of the lipstick and one I would only wear on a really good lip day, but wow is it amazing. This is a super bold matte red, which would be perfect for a Christmas party with a really simple and classy cat eye.  Super sexy and perfect for this time of year - but you've got to be brave to wear it!

Do you go for a red lip this time of year? Let me know what you use!
