Blogmas Day 8 – Christmas Lipstick Ideas


Today I am going to be talking through 5 lipsticks that I think could work really well for Christmas. These are all lipsticks that I have used so I have first hand experience of all of them!

Accessorize Lip Tint and Balm in All Glam



I bought these at Clicks a while ago and they were on sale for R10 (less than a pound and less than a dollar) each! I love this lip product because the colour stays on all night and it also glides on really easily. This was used in an earlier Blogmas post which you can find here.

Unfortunately these can no longer be found online but I have given you some dupes in this post here.

Catrice 370 In A Rosegarden



I used this lipstick every day for more than a week. It is such a stunning colour and goes on so easily. It is very pigmented and also stays on your lips for quite a while so you do not constantly have to reapply.

You can look at it here.

Catrice 140 Meet Violeta



I was a bit nervous to wear this to work as I thought that it would be too purple but it actually works! It looks slightly sheer when you first put it on but I just do a few strokes and it turns into the perfect colour! It also has quite a shimmer to it!

You can look at it here.

MAC Evening Rendezvous



I received this as a gift last Christmas and I love it! This is actually what I plan on wearing this year for Christmas! It is such a gorgeous colour and is very pigmented. As with MAC’s other products it is really good quality and worth the money!

Unfortunately it was a limited edition so it is no longer available on their website but you can grab one from Amazon here or a pretty good dupe from ColourPop here.

Woolworths Oyster Flush



This was one of the first lipsticks that I ever bought. I wanted it so much that I searched the shop every time I went in there for months until they finally got it in stock again! It is such a smooth formula and stays on for a long time. It is also a bit more on the nude side if you don’t want something quite as out there.

You can purchase it here.

Do you have any of these lip products? What lipstick will you be reaching for during the festive season? Let me know in the comments below!

    I’ve really been loving my NYX soft matte lip cream in the shade of /Madrid/ lately! Dark red lips are a must this Christmas!
