‘Tis the Season for Red Lips

I said pour yourself a drink,

put on some lipstick

and pull yourself together.

– Marilyn Monroe

Maybe pulling yourself together is that simple?

'Tis the Season for Red Lips

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.

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).
