This year I am going to take part of a lovely Tag called The Christmas Advent Challenge
organized by the lovely girls over at What’s in my bag
and Consigli di Makeup
to celebrate this month leading up to the holidays with some Christmas themed blog posts. The first challenge is to show your perfect red, and for me that’s undeniably lipstick!!!
This time last year I bought myself my first MAC lipstick and that was Diva, the perfect dark red with a purple undertone matte lipstick, do I have to say more? LOVE! Now I’m not one for getting a 19€ lipstick everyday, so up to that moment i was surviving (and very happily) with my Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate matte 107 which is a very similar shade, just a tad lighter on the lips, same matte texture and for 10€ and the drugstore discounts, definitely a super affordable dupe!
And now for my absolute favorite of the bunch, the one that i wear the most over even my MAC Diva, is the new L’Oreal Collection Exclusive Letitia’s Red
. I raved about this line here
and I do believe I found my perfect red in this deep warm toned lipstick. Goes on like a charm (excuse my chapped lips), lasts all day with a bit of a stain left over and has a very comfortable demi-matte finish that doesn’t dry out the lips like the MAC mattes do. A pleasure to wear, a show stopper for day and night and my favorite red for winter!
So here are three options for my perfect red lips for the festive season. If you want to join the challenge, you can find the presentation here
(only in italian sorry). There are 3 more installments to accompany us to Christmas, so I hope you’ll enjoy this journey.
Have you found your perfect red? Is it a lipstick, nail polish or a dress?
