Swatch Attack!: 6 Red Lipsticks for Christmas!

“I came out of the womb waving red lipstick” said actress and singer Rose McGowan and well, even if you weren’t born waving a red lipstick, there is always THE occasion to flaunt one!! Christmas is the time to bring out all your red lipsticks, glitter and flaunt it, in style. So here are my picks for you to flaunt this Christmas! 

Let me tell you, first and foremost that all of these are NOT pure red lipsticks. Well, there is a coral lipstick which leans towards a reddish orange, a orange with strong red undertones.. well… let’s just there is something for everyone! 😀 And the order of the swatches shown below is such that it starts off with the unusual choices and ends with the typical holiday reds! 


Swatch Attack: 6 Red Lipsticks for Christmas!


Revlon Romantic: Price: 600 INR for 2.7g 
Romantic is a tomato red with deep orange undertones. This color is apt for those of you who love red and orange or want something that is not bold and wearable for a day out. 

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain – Romantic

WetnWild  Mega Last Lip Color 909D: Price: $2.29
Also known as Cora-line, it is an unusual coral with strong reddish orange undertones. It looks more of a coral-red on my lips and the intensity of the color is bound to vary with each individual but nevertheless it is a fun happy-go-lucky color that I find apt for the holiday season!

Rubylicious is a blue based red that looks gorgeous on Indian skin tones.
Maybelline Colorsensational Jewels Collection Lipstick – Rubylicious
VIVO Matte Lipstick Pucker Red: Price: £1.99
VIVO Matte Lipstick in Pucker Red looks like a deep blue based red in the tube but is actually a beautiful deep reddish pink shade, more of a raspberry pink.

Revlon Lip Butter Red Velvet: Price600 INR 
Well, if you love the deep reds, then this one is for you! Revlon Lip Butter in Red Velvet is a deep brownish-red which actually comes really close to a plum lipstick. The lip butter is sheer so you need to swipe it around 2-3 to get full opacity and that makes it adaptable! You can tone it down for the day and go all the way out for the night! But ’tis the season to wear it full on! Falalalalalalala!!

RiRi Woo Lipglass: Price: 1200 INR 
My latest obsession, this color is a cool toned blue based red that is screams Christmas. It is a Limited Edition so if you are planning to sport a bright red lipstick for Christmas, New Year rush to the MAC store today and get this one!!
