Christmas Red Lips #RedLipsChallenge

The plan was to show you my top ten from the #RedLipsChallenge that Heidi, Blair, Sabrina and I are taking part in on Instagram. As you lip junkies know, red lip products stain like a mofo so Imma give you five now and five next week. #beautybloggerproblem Be sure to check out the Instagram links previously mentioned for some awesome red lip products.

Revlon ColorStay Lipliner 'Red' + Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss 'Fatal Apple'

This is a great combination for someone that's new to red lips. The Lip Gloss is very sheer and shiny so it moisturizes the lips. Revlon's ColorStay lip liners are dupes for M.A.C Pro Longwear ones. This one is particular is a dupe (colour and staying power) for 'RiRi Woo' Pro Longwear lip liner that was limited edition.

Revlon Lip Butter 'Cherry Tart' + Jordana Lipliner 'Cabaret'

Like the combination previously mentioned this is an easy one for beginners. The Lip Butters are very moisturizing and ease the dry texture of the lip liner. 'Cabaret' is one of my favourite red lip liners; just an awesome colour.

L.A.Colors Lipstick 'CP230' + NYX Lipliner Pencil 'Plum'

Talk about cheap and sweet! While I do not like the scent of this L.A. Colors lipstick I can't fault its pigmentation. This baby stains. The NYX lip liners are my tried and true ride or dies; not a bad word about them.

Perfection. Wear one layer or four. Perfection. You don't even need a lip liner but you could pair it with one of those anti-feathering ones if you're worried that the colour might migrate on you.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick 'Cherries In The Snow' + Absolute New York Waterproof Gel Lip Liner 'Berry'

While 'Cherries In The Snow' is not a red red it does have a bit of red in it. It's also pigmented AF! On first impression of the Absolute lip liners I gotta say I like them. There's absolutely (tee hee) no tugging on the lips. 'Berry' is my type of colour.

M.A.C Shiny Pretty Things Haul

In the most tardy local M.A.C Holiday release ever, Shiny Pretty Things was made available when the new store finally opened in The Colonnade Mall on December 3rd.


From YouTube chatter, it seemed like the eyeshadow singles and the Extra Dimension Skinfinish 'Snowflushed' were the hot ticket items. 'Snowflushed' is supposedly a big pan of 'Stylishly Merry'. To me, those thing were definitely mesmerizing to look at but the lip glasses were the unexpected stunners.


At this point, M.A.C items in limited edition packaging are collector's pieces. Right? Right. I was more looking at what would make great gifts.

Matte Metallic 'Straight Fire'
The matte bright fuchsia 'Both Cheeks' looked gorgeous too but we all know I barely wear pink lipstick.

Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser

Usually I do these cleanser reviews when I've used the product for a while. Typically a little before half the product is gone. Well...


...this is almost done. I was using this in the shower and yuh know, time just got away.
