It's Christmas Eve can you believe it? I can't! It's come about so quickly it's unreal. This morning I rushed to Westfield to get some last minute bits, I've been unwell again with a nasty flu and vomiting bug so I haven't left home since I arrived back in London. It's been good being at home, nice and cosy watching Xmas TV and getting in to the festive spirit.
One thing I wanted to post about was a lipstick I picked up from Sephora last week. Surprise surprise it's yet ANOTHER red lipstick, honestly I believe a woman can never have enough red lipstick and this one was such a great find. I adore matte lips especially when it comes to bold colours such as red. When I tried the Colour Lip Last in Wanted Red (number 20), I knew it would be the perfect shade for Christmas and was just what I needed to get myself into the mood.
When you initially apply the lipstick the texture is so creamy and moisturising you would assume it's a glossy lipstick, however within moments it dries to a perfect velvet, matte finish. In reality it's a lipstick version of my favourite Sephora lip stain which I rave about all the time! (Read more HERE HERE & HERE). I would say the main difference between this lipstick and the Sephora lip stain is that this is a lot deeper in colour and I also find this lipstick to be slightly less drying on the lips.
Either way I love it, I came home this afternoon and applied this lipstick (Purpose of the blogpost of course) and now I am sat here in Christmas PJs, watching Harry Potter and rocking red lips. Nothing like feeling festive ay!? I look so pale in these pictures, I think being sick on and off for the last few months has sucked the life out of me.. Argh in desperate need of SUN!
