Hey guys! How excited are you for Christmas? I know I am! I love the thought of posting every day in the run up to Christmas and I’ve written up a post of ideas here which you guys should all check out if you’re unsure what to post. I’m actually collaborating with the lovely Kianna aka CoffeeWithK, you can check out her blog here and you should follow her on Twitter here. She’s so lovely and has such an amazing blog!
Anyway, less rambling, more swatching!
This is honestly one of the best lip products I have ever used, it is to die for. It smells so good and is so creamy and pigmented. The only thing that I don’t like about it is that it doesn’t dry down completely matte as it advertises which means that there is some transfer on cups/skin etc. But this colour is one of my favourites. The applicator also needs to be mentioned as it’s like a normal lipgloss/lipstick applicator but with a dent in it which makes it match the curve of your lips – making it so easy to apply! I love it lots and it’s a perfect cool tone for winter.
Metallic lipstick has been a trend for 2017 and I didn’t quite get it but when I saw this colour, I really wanted to try it. First of all, how beautiful is the packaging? I love this colour so much but I think it works better against another colour for a sort of ombre look. I’ve paired it with Divine Wine and it looked so Christmassy and perfect. I’ll be doing a makeup tutorial on the whole look I did with it because it was perfect for a Christmas party. The only thing is because it’s so sheer as it’s metallic, it takes a few coats to get full pigmentation if you’re not putting it with another lipstick. Also, you’ll see a TAM Beauty banner below which is the company that provides Revolution, Freedom etc. If you do buy something through this link then I will get a commission but I want to assure everyone that all of my opinions are 100% my own. Small disclaimer there!
I love this lipstick, I find myself always reaching for it if I want a bit more of a dramatic look. I used to wear red lipstick all the time and I don’t know what it was that put me off but this made me fall in love with it again. It’s a bit dry but the colour payoff is worth it. Just because it’s darker, I would advise applying a lipliner first but I haven’t found that it bleeds out anyway. This colour is perfect for a Christmas look if paired with a golden eyeshadow.

I think you can see the colour scheme that I’m going with for this post but this is one of my newest additions to my lipstick condition. It’s a lovely purple/berry colour which is so dark and beautiful. It takes a few swipes to get full pigmentation but it’s perfect for the winter months. And for that price, you can’t go wrong. Same disclaimer as above!
Again, the red lip is the way to go for Christmassy makeup and I do love it so much. This one is a pencil applicator which is super creamy and easy to put on so you don’t necessarily need to put a lipliner on with it. I love the colour and pigmentation of this and I was super surprised as I said before because I don’t really like red lipsticks – especially bright ones like this – but I’ve worn this quite a few times since I bought it.
So, there you have it! What’s your favourite colour to wear for winter? Let me know in the comments below. Are you doing blogmas? Link me to your post so I can see it!
