4 red lipsticks perfect for Christmas parties

Wearing a red lipstick to a Christmas get together is a no brainer really. You just cant go wrong with a bold red lip at this time of the year and if you're like me and you like wearing black then it will add a bit of fun to your look. Ive only recently started wearing red lipsticks after I got my braces taken off and I love it. Somehow I feel more confident and prettier when I wear a red lipstick and of course more festive.

I dont own too many red lippies but the ones I do have I really love and do wear. The only tip I would give is to always wear a lipliner before you apply any red lipstick. It will last and wear longer and just make your life a whole lot easier if you're asking me.

Too Faced melted lipstick in 'Melted Strawberry'
Im a huge fan of the Too Faced melted lipsticks in general and this shade is just beautiful. I love the sponge tip applicator because it makes application so much smoother and even and the packaging is so cute. Its a long lasting lipstick and I find that it stains my lips so when it does eventually wear off you still have some colour there. Now on to the shade, its a bright blood red with a slight pink tint to it  and it makes your teeth look really white so thats a big bonus! 

Maybelline vivid matte liquid lipstick in 'Orange Shot'
Despite it being named 'Orange Shot' this is actually a really bright glossy red. This liquid lipstick is more of a semi-matte finish which is actually nicer for the winter time because your lips and skin tend to get dryer and it feels more like a creme when you apply it. The only downfall is it does transfer quite easily but that fine if you don't plan on smooching anyone at your Christmas party.

Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate in '107'
This lipstick is a bit of a classic in the online beauty community. I bought it because Zoella always use to rave about it and the colour looked incredible on her. Its definitely more of a vampy red which is nice if you're feeling a bit more daring or if you prefer a deeper coloured lip in general. However I hate how this lipstick lasts if you don't use a lipliner before hand. I find that it slips and smudges very easily and bleeds without one and I always blot my lips to get rid of the extra product. 

L'oreal Colour Riche in 'Blake's Pure Red'
In my opinion this is the perfect christmas red especially if you are quite fair or blonde. Its a very true and almost cranberry red thats a lovely matte finish. Whats great about this lipstick too is it doesn't feel drying at all and it feels weightless. I haven't really worn it for a long time so Im not sure about the longevity of it but this is definitely going to be my Christmas lippie of choice.
