I said pour yourself a drink,
put on some lipstick
and pull yourself together.
– Marilyn Monroe
Maybe pulling yourself together is that simple?
Sometimes, wearing a risque red can really boost your confidence levels dramatically. For me it can go two ways: I either feel very insecure or very confident. Now is the time to pull this bright, bold colour out of your makeup bag !
If you ever needed an excuse to wear red lipstick, let December be it!
For this post, I decided to stick to very budget friendly lipsticks, as December can be a very hard month for your bank account.
From left to right, we have:
- Essence XXXL Longlasting Lipgloss (17 Hot Brownie) – Under R100
- Manic Panic NYC (Kiss of Death) – Under R300
- Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor (635 Passion) – Under R200
- Rimmel Kate Moss Collection (51 Muse Red) – Under R100
All of these lipsticks, apart from Kiss of Death by Manic Panic NYC, are available in Dischem and Clicks. The Manic Panic lipstick can be purchased from AnonaMiss Beauty Emporium online.
I was really shocked to find out that Manic Panic NYC sells lipsticks, and I must say that they are absolutely lovely! The packaging, for one, is a winner. I am wearing Kiss of Death in the picture below. I am also crazy about the packaging for a few of the Rimmel Kate Collection lipsticks (that colour).
What are your favorite lipsticks for December?
