Holiday Lipstick: Four Favorites

Sometimes Gracefully LipsticksSometimes Gracefully Holiday Lipstick

Last week, I sent out invites to my sister’s bachelorette party with a festive caption that read “Rock your favorite lip color!” – which {admittedly by my own doing} gave me the perfect excuse to update my lipstick collection. As if buying a new lip color during the holiday season really “needed” justification {eye roll, am I right?}. I’ll confess to you that lipstick is not my go-to beauty product. I’m usually much more of a mascara girl, but the Christmas season somehow magically transforms me into a lipstick fanatic. Pinks, Reds, Plums…I’m all about a bold lip color when the rest of the city is blanketed with snow. So here are four of my recent favorites!

  1. L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Balm — I’m a major fan of the L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche lipstick line for a more natural holiday color. This particular line from L’Oreal is actually a lip balm, which, in lip color language, roughly translates to “SEE YA NEVER, CHAPPED WINTER LIPS.” Colour Riche in Rose Elixir is my new daytime go-to.
  2. Maybelline Color Sensational Lipcolor —  Blissful Berry from Maybelline Color Sensational Lipcolor is great shade if you’re looking for something a little different than the usual December Red. Sure, Red may be the season’s most prevalent lipcolor, but I think pops of purpley-pink are making a much needed Christmas party comeback.
  3. Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick — Sometimes, you’ve just got to channel your inner Lorde this holiday season and rock a dark shade of lipstick, like Revlon’s Black Cherry. Let’s just say {or sing} you call me Queen G. 😉
  4. Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick — Bold. Red. And Glossy. What more do you need in a holiday lip color? I’m wearing Red Alert in the picture above!

Have any lip color favorites of your own? Hope you have a great rest of your day!

    I heard about Clique’s dark color similar to your black cherry by revlon, and I really want to buy a tube, even if it will look a little ridiculous with my blonde hair blue eyed self. I might only wear it in a living room sipping wine, but I will be rockin’.

    I think the Rimmel is my favorite on you, although the slight tint of pink in the Maybelline is nice too!

    My favorites (and/or the only two I have ;p) are NARS Heat Wave and MAC Milan Mode. They’re pretty bold, but I always think it’s too bad that not very many women wear bright lipstick.
