The best party season lipsticks

By  |  0 Comments

UP your festive lip game with bold and beautiful shades to stand out at the Christmas party.
From the perfect nude to scarlet red and even metallic purple, we’ve hunted down some the best shades of the season.




MAC’s newly released Powder Kiss range comes in a range of stunning hues and leave a velvetty-matte finish on the lips.
Right now we’re also loving Profusion’s range of liquid lipsticks, which have ultimate staying powder.


MAC Powder Kiss Lipstick in Devoted to Chilli


For a classic evening look, pair a bold red lip with pared back skin and lashings of mascara.
Or put a spin on a classic nude lip by topping off with on-trend metallic gold gloss.
Here’s some of the best of the bunch.

Available in all MAC stores.



Profusion Lips Set, £16



ANY lip lover’s dream, this eight piece metallic and matte lip set collection included 6 shades of liquid lipstick, three retractable lip liner pens and a lip primer to ensure you have the perfect pout.
This kit contains every shade you need to get you through party season and thereafter.




As well as containing the perfect Kim Kardashian nude, a rosy pink and metallic berry hue, it also has a pretty copper red.
The pink shade is perfect for those who want to go with a dramatic eye but still want a stunning lip shade.




Each lipliner in the kit provide long-lasting coverage and the nude tone is the perfect dupe for MAC Spice.
Line the lips before applying the crayon lip primer, which helps to set lipstick in place, then one simple slick will keep your colour smudge-proof all night.

Available at Boots.



MAC Powder Kiss Lipstick in Lasting Passion, £17.50






CHRISTMAS just wouldn’t be the same without a bright red lipstick.
Lasting Passion, £17
, from Mac’s new Powder Kit range is the ultimate head turner.
Inspired by the backstage beauty trick of blurring lipstick, the powder kiss formula leaves a pillowy soft, powdered finish straight out of 50s movie set.
This clean bright red hue suits most skin types and stays matte without drying out the lips.
Simply pop this on straight after work to up the glamour factor.


Prima Power Pout Diamond Gloss, £6.99



Prima shade Fiya


IF you’re planning on smooching under the mistletoe, this liquid lipstick will stay put all night without the give-away smudges.
The highly pigmented lip candy glides on and the shades pack a punch without drying out your lips.


Wearing the shade Fiya


This stuff is seriously budge-proof, waterproof and kissproof – so will take a lot of work to remove at the end of the night.
To pull off a vampy look that’s not too try hard, the shade ‘Bae’ is a sultry, deep matte mauve that brightens the skin.



We’re also obsessed with Fiya, a gilded, metallic gold glitter gloss which rivals Pat McGrath’s super pricey glitter lipsticks.

Charlotte Tilbury Superstar Lips, £24



FOR a polished lip look, look to this gorgeous new addition by Charlotte Tilbury.
If you’re not a fan of the dry feeling of matte lipsticks, these heavenly lipsticks feel light as air and give a stunning sheen.


Wearing the shade ‘Wild Lips’


Combining the high shine of a gloss and the staying power of a lipstick, this silky texture glides onto lips with a creamy feel.
Lips look sumptuous and plump with a subtle hint of radiance.
We love the shade ‘Wild Lips,’ a glossy, strawberry pink which makes teeth look shades whiter.


Available online at or in stores.


Ciate London Glitter Flip Lipstick, £17



RAVED about by bloggers and Insta influencers, this iconic lipstick has all the sparkle you’ll need over the festive season.
These transforming liquid lipsticks turn from matte to glitter liquid lipstick with a wearable editorial finish in multi-dimensional, sizzling shades.



Simply apply, press lips together and watch your pout transform into a mesmerising glitter lip almost magically.
This gives a gorgeous holographic finish and will last the duration of the party without the need for top ups.



Glitter is subtle but the pigmented formula feels comfortable on the lips while packing a punch.
My favourite is the shade Valentine, a dreamy, baby pink that makes lips look sumptuously plump.

Candy Coat Lipsticks, £8

Results are a velvety finish with amazing pay off for just £8 a pop!
