We’re all set for the festive season, we’ve started ticking off those items from our Christmas and New Year shopping lists. In the final post to our must have makeup buys this festive season, we cover lipstick shades, shades that can be paired with Divaly’s recommendations for eyeshadows and blushes. To be honest, choosing the lipstick shades were the hardest, only 3 shades from all the different reds, pinks, browns, nudes, maroons, corals, plums, etc.etc. But staying true to our theme I have narrowed down to those 3 shades that will give you that extra pop of colour you need for that pretty pout and the endless selfies that one needs to take for the festive season ;-)…
For this post, I have chosen :
1. Brooklyn by Buxom – This is a beautiful mauve matte shade. Boy what can I tell you about this lipstick, I happened to come across this while visiting family in Canada at one of the Sephora outlets and it has been my favourite ever since. Buxom may not be familiar to many people, at least it wasn’t to me and I’m so glad I came across this brand. This can be used as a lip liner, as a lipstick – it has a creamy velvet-matte texture and it also subtly plumps up your lips. You can actually feel the slight tingling, cooling sensation. Even though this lipstick is on the darker side, it can literally be worn with any outfit. You could even use it as a base and add mix another shade or just add a little gloss and you are good to go.
2. Lustering by M.A.C – This is a lovely watermelon pink in a lustre finish. This is a pretty lightweight lipstick and and gives a nice glossy finish. This is also great to mix with other shades but if you don’t want to go too dark and want a slight pop of colour this is a really neat shade. If you dab on a little, it would almost look like a gloss!
3. Red wine by Korres – For all those who love their red shades of lipstick, this is a winner and an absolute must have in your makeup bag. This is a great colour for those who normally aren’t sure what red to start out with. It has great staying power and can be intensified depending on how much you apply. Introduced to me by my best friend Divya, I can never forget how obsessed we were with this colour!!
We hope you are all set for this upcoming festive season and as always happy shopping :-)!!
