My Perfect Christmas Red

Hi guys,

6th December

Everyone has their perfect Christmas red.  It’s the lipstick you always go to around this time of year, it screams festivity.  You wear it throughout December at any chance you get, because if you can’t wear bright red at Christmas, when can you?  Today I’m here to share with you my perfect Christmas lipstick!


This here is my favourite lipstick!  It’s Kiko Milano’s lipstick in shade 811, a high shine berry red, which means it has pinky undertones which suit me more, as a harsh red just makes my skin look very pale and washed out.  I love the formula, it’s very glossy and the application is so easy.  Plus, Kiko have amazing makeup; they are not raved about in the beauty world enough!


This isn’t a good swatch as it makes the lipstick appear very sheer which it is not.  It’s actually a very bold colour with great pigmentation.  Plus, the great thing about high shine lipsticks, which we are using less and less often with most of us preferring matte liquid lipsticks, is that they don’t leave your lips feeling dry!

This lipstick doesn’t stay on as well as I’d like it to, and does transfer a little when you’re eating/drinking, but all in all it’s not a hugely inconvenient thing to reapply it every once in a while and it’s a small price to pay for something which completes a festive makeup look perfectly!

I really hope you enjoyed this post – what is your favourite lipstick for the Christmas time? Let’s have a chat in the comments!
