Holiday Lips with Rimmel




I don’t own many red lipsticks, probably because I’m much more of a neutrals person when it comes to lip color. However, more recently I have found myself reaching more for deeper shades, like Maybelline’s Deepest Cherry. This is why I decided to head over to CVS in search of red lipsticks that would be perfect for the holiday season. I went straight to the Rimmel display, since I love the brand’s Moisture Renew range, as well as the Kate Moss lipsticks. I decided on Moisture Renew Lipstick in As You Want Victoria, a bright, glossy pink-red and Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick in 01, a matte, crimson red.

As You Want Victoria is a real stand-out shade. It also feels extremely comfortable on the lips – creamy and moisturizing. I think that this hot pink-red shade would look best paired with a bit of pale pink blush, winged black gel liner and mascara.

The Lasting Finish Lipstick is what I think of as the “perfect red lip.” It is a true, classic red that I look would look beautiful on any skin tone. Although it has a matte finish, this formula doesn’t dry out my lips in the least. It is also quite long-lasting and has lasted for several hours on me through meals and drinks. I think that this shade looks best paired with pale pink cheeks, a wash of a shimmering taupe over the lids [my go to shade has been Satin Taupe by Mac] and black gel liner.

What are your favorite red lip colors?
