Getting Ready for Christmas #8: The Christmas Red

Good morning, everyone! Today I'm having another Christmas themed post for Getting Ready for Christmas challenge. As you can see from the title, I skipped one task. Seventh task was Christmas wishlist and I decided not to do it. I mean, I do have some things on my WL, but I decided not to post it and do rather on theme 8. That theme was "the Christmas red" or a classic red shade for nail and lips.


I knew from the beginning of this challenge, which red will I use for lips here, because it's my favourite at the moment. I'm talking about Essence Dare to Wear. It's a gorgeous darker red lipstick with glossy finish from Essence new range of longlasting lipsticks and it's the best lipstick from this range, at least from those I tried. I already said once before, that it lasted on my lips few hours, although I ate and drink and I really recommend you to try it. I wasn't completely sure, which polish to combine with it, because I don't have any in exact shade of lipstick, so I choose Barry M Blood Orange. I already showed swatches here, so I didn't swatch it again (idk, why lisptick looks brighter on this photo, probably because of light).

I wasn't completely sure, what makeup look should I do to combine it with the lipstick, so I did something very simple - double liner. I decided to add a golden liner, too, not just the black one, because golden color is a Christmas color and this should be a Christmas look.
