"Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas."

Because the festive season has only just begun, and the colour red is especially liked when it comes to lip products, I thought I'd do a whole post about my favourite red lipsticks/lip products!
Down below, you can find all my faves with some more details... Maybe you can pick a favourite yourself! :)
Maybelline | Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Colour in 965 'Siren In Scarlet'
This is definitely my favourite out of all my red lipsticks! I've always wanted a matte bright red lipstick and I had finally found one that seemed perfect to me when I browsed through the shelves of some drugstore a few months ago! :P
The finish is indeed matte but it doesn't look too dry on your lips and doesn't dry them out either - you should make sure, though, to apply a lip balm before applying this, just like with every matte lipstick.
NYX | Soft Matte Lip Cream in 'Monte Carlo'
In all honesty, this was the most spontaneous purchase I've ever made while shopping! I just thought the colour pay-off of the Soft Matte Lip Creams is amazing and they last you all day long and since I was looking for another red shade in lipsticks, I went for this one!
It's a lovely red, slightly darker than the Maybelline Color Sensational one but still a red to go for during the festive season! The lip creams from NYX are definitely my favourites when it comes to matte lip creams; the texture is amazing, they're so easy to apply and they last very well, without making your lips feel dry whatsoever.
Nick Assfalg Cosmetics | Your Lipstick in 'Amadeus'
Definitely the brightest red lipstick I've ever owned and ever seen, actually! I would say it's almost even a red to orange shade that looks lovely when applied! It doesn't last as long as the matte ones because it's quite creamy and you definitely have to apply two to three layers of this before it gives a great amount of colour pay-off but I can work with that. In the end, it's just another amazing red lipstick!
Rimmel | Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liner in 024 'Red Diva'
Well, not a lipstick but an essential for me when it comes to applying shades like red onto my lips! It's a perfect match for my Maybelline lipstick and this will definitely be my combo for Christmas this year! It's also such a creamy and soft lip liner! Really enjoy applying this to my lips actually!
