Two Perfect Lip Shades For Christmas Day.

On Christmas I find it hard to pick a lipstick shade, I want to wear red but knowing I have to eat with it on makes me stay away from it. I came across two perfect shades this year for Christmas Day or even New Year. Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet are perfect for the festive season, you can wear them bold or apply them with your finger for a subtle look. Easy to apply and long wearing which is great. I found that if you wear the red all day the colour fades when you eat or drink but it leaves your lips with an amazing tint of colour.

Hot Pepper is a shade I am loving at the moment, I usually wear bright red lips but this one has such a great staying power and it feels soft on my lips. I am a Rimmel 107 girl usually but this Christmas I want to wear this red out to my moms house for Christmas morning and if I need to I will wear 06 Happy Nude year as it gives the lips a gorgeous light pink tone. They are easy to apply and the staying power is incredible, they don;t smudge. 03 is the perfect shade for a pop of red that will last all night looking great, it fades into a gorgeous pop of colour. The applicator makes it easy to apply in the corners of the lips and leaves you with a quick and simple perfect lip.
06 - Happy Nude Year*
06 Happy Nude year has to be my favourite shade from 2014, its a recent find but its here to stay in my make up bag. I am obsessed with wearing this shade, I enjoy putting a small amount on by using my finger or if I'm going out I use the applicator for a more bold look. It sets off my make up well with the winged eye liner and it feels great on. They are super smooth and they don't dry out your lips which over the festive season is a bonus. I enjoy using these products because they look great and they are comfortable to wear. I was lucky enough to try both shades from a goodie bag but I know I will be buying some myself very soon, I want to try more colours out.

I find that these two shades are perfect for a Christmas Day make up look, they have such an amazing staying power. You won't have to worry when you are eating your Christmas dinner. They fade into a gorgeous light shade of the product you applied before all the yummy food, which is great you can worry less about your make up smudging. They are gorgeous shades that I will be taking with me into 2015.
