Jolly & Red

December, December. How I love you so! Almost as much as that charming mistletoe.

Hold your makeup bags, ladies. It’s time to bring our favorite reds out from hibernation.

Most girls start their love affair of cosmetics with their mom’s lipstick. I was raised on the idea that a woman is never complete without a touch of “colorete,” or lipstick, as told by my loving Abuelita. Crimson red was her signature hue, and she wore it with the utmost pride and fabulousness.  I happen to be a fan of a warm red myself, even some borderline orange hues.

Here are some red-hot lippies on my Christmas list!

From Nudestix, the Intense Matte Lip + Cheek Pencil in Stiletto ($24)

Kylie Cosmetics’ Red Velvet | Velet Lip Kit ($27)

Bite Beauty’s Matte Créme Lip Crayon in Rose Hip ($24)

And last but certainly not least,

Yves Saint Laurent’s Rouge Pur Couture Limited Edition Lipstick in Blood Red ($38)

Here, I’m wearing a conglomerate of Maybelline and E.l.f. lippies.

What are some lipstick brands you enjoy?
