The makeup you wear can have just as much of an impact as your outfit – so why not make a statement? For the holiday party season, there’s nothing more fitting than a stunning bold lip, but it can be hard to find the perfect lipstick to suit you. Luckily for you, here at Littlewoods we’ve got a huge range of loads of different types and shades of lipsticks, so there’s something for everyone!
Our beauty experts have picked their Top 5 favourites – which one will be your perfect go-to lippy for the Christmas season?
If you’re looking for a red that’ll make you stand out in a crowd, then this is the lipstick for you. It says it all in the name: Pillar Box Red from Barry M is your true pillar box red. This vibrant, fun lipstick is soft and smooth to apply and it’s long lasting too, meaning it’s great for those moments under the mistletoe. If you’re feeling bold and brave, this head-turner is your best buy!
If we’ve learnt anything this year, it’s that mattes are the way forward! But sometimes mattes can be way too drying – though not this one! The Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Colour Moisturising Lipstick in Matte Bold Red is infused with moisture, saving your lips from those cold winter winds. That’s not all – it’s highly pigmented and lasts up to 12 hours.
If red’s not your thing, try the L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lipstick in the shade Mon Jules. It’s a gorgeous pinky-brown shade, with a tad bit of a red undertone (but not too much!). It’s silky smooth and rich in colour, so you can take your look from the office to after-work drinks.
Feeling dark and daring? Then this vampy lipstick is just for you. The NYX High Voltage Lipstick in Feline is a sexy deep plum that is vibrant and super rich. And don’t be afraid of the dramatic shade, the sultry autumnal colour looks great on every skin tone.
If the last shade isn’t out-there enough for you, then try this gothic berry shade. The Sleek True Colour Lipstick in Mulberry is a high-impact, highly pigmented matte that will keep your lips soft and supple. It’s also enriched with vitamin E to help hydrate and protect your lips.
So there you have it, ranging from bright red to dark deep berry, these are our favourite festive lipsticks for the winter season. But if these aren’t the shades for you, don’t sweat it – there are plenty more where those came from!
