Festive Lip Picks

Hello Lovelies! 

As you all know I am becoming slightly braver with my lip colour choices the past few months, so I felt it was only right that I shared my picks now that it is coming up to Christmas party time! Plus it is actually my work Christmas party tonight and I am completely undecided which one to wear, so you guys can help me pick this way!

Korres Wild Rose Lip Butter
Starting off with the most moisturizing of my picks is the Korres Wild Rose lip butter. I have had the Jasmine version of this permanently in my make up bag the past few weeks but as it gets closer to Christmas I have dug out the Wild Rose version as it is more colour appropriate I find! I am such a massive fan of these lip butters. They provide amazing moisturise to your lips and a nice tint of colour too! I currently have my eye on the Mango version and the next time ASOS is having a sale I think I may have to just pick it up! 

MAC Ruby Woo
I got this as a Christmas present last year and it has been my go to red lipstick since. It is a matte blood red lipstick. Now when I say it's matte be is the matte-est lipstick I won and definitely the most drying! But for the colour I am willing to bring out a lip balm with me! It lasts for ages on the lips and it is my favourite red lipstick that I own!

MAC Rebel
My latest obsession the past couple of months has definitely been Rebel! It is a deep plum colour which I feel would suit a wide range of skin-tones, so if you are thinking about it I'd advise to go try it on in MAC just to make sure you love it as much as I do! This has a more moisturising finish compared to Ruby Woo so it is alot easier to wear!

Rimmel Big Bang Apocolips
This is something I may pop on top of Ruby Woo to give it a glossier finish or I would even just wear this on its own for a pop of colour. All the Apocolips are amazingly pigmented and longlasting on the lips. The colour range is lovely and they have some gorgeous red shades out for Christmas, I have my eye on Aurora at the moment which is a gorgeous raspberry shade! 

Bourjois Plum Russian Lip Crayon
Finally this is the lip product I have had in my handbag the past while. It is just so easy to apply, you don't even need a mirror you can't go wrong! It leaves a lovely glossy finish to the lips as well as a lovely tint of colour that you can easily layer up if you want! I am so glad Bourjois released this colour in the lip crayons because I was such a massive fan of them in Summer! 

So those are the lip products I will be reaching for the most over the holidays! Have you tried any of these products? What lip product will you be reaching for this festive season?


  1. I say go for Ruby Woo for your Christmas party tonight. Such a stunning red. I've had my eyes on it for centuries now, I really need to pick up a bullet soon :) shame about its drying properties because I' m so used to lipstick/lipbalms/lipgloss hybrids as of late but I think for a gorgeous colour like Ruby Woo, I can handle it ;). Plus I read somewhere that it's the perfect red for any skintones. Lovely picks Danielle. :) xx

  2. All of these lip colours are gorgeous Danielle, Rebel is definitely my favourite of the bunch! I'd recommend the Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain in Crush. It's a lovely berry colour and is even more pigmented than the Color Boost Crayon :)

  3. I would say it depends on the outfit or jewellery you are wearing, but either Ruby Woo or the Apocolips :)

  4. Rebel is definitely my favorite. Ruby Woo is beautiful, but I struggle with reds, they make me feel awkward, haha. If I wear anything other than nude, it's Rebel.
    Great post!

  5. Great picks!
    I have MAC's Rebel and I love it :)
    I want another apocolips because that colour is gorgeous!!
    Recently got a lip butter too in Guava but Wild Rose looks so cute!
