Red Lips That Will See You Through Christmas Dinner | Rimmel Provocalips Review


I love a red lip, always have, always will. And I just think Christmas is the perfect time to pull one off. I've been wearing different shades and variations of the red lip as soon as autumn hit, but for Christmas day, I want a lipstick that won't let me down through the vast amount of eating and drinking I'll be doing.  Which is where this little beauty comes in, the Rimmel Provocalips - 500 Kiss Me You Fool.

I'm pretty sure everyone has heard of Rimmel Provocalips, but if you haven't, then welcome. Provocalips are liquid lipsticks that finish matte, with a balm on the other end to provide a glossy finish, and really seal in the colour for extra staying power. 

Kiss Me You Fool is a bright toned, 'postbox red' red, and I just love it. I think it's super flattering to my pale skin tone and the pigmentation is just incredible. Completely opaque, and can be matte or glossy depending on if you use the balm or not. Personally, I prefer a matte look and tend not to use the balm that often. 

The staying power on this baby is just fantastic. I'm always wary with a bold red lip, you can leave the house looking fantastic and come back with faded lips, that have bled out. And if you're like me, and hate re-applying while you're out and about, then red lips aren't always much fun. I recently wore Kiss Me You Fool while out shopping with friends, and then out for dinner and drinks after. I had used one coat, and not used the balm or a lip liner. After eating, I did use the balm to refresh, but that's hardly much of a hassle in comparison to re-application. When I got home, I had a good look at my lips and thought they had faded ever so slightly in the corners of my mouth, but nothing really noticeable. They hadn't bled or become messy or unsightly, which is a huge relief for such a bold colour.

I know I'm definitely going to be wearing this on Christmas day, while I cram myself full of turkey, chocolates and champagne. I know I won't have to worry about running off to the bathroom to carefully re-apply, and instead I can just focus on relaxing and enjoying myself. So if your looking for a red lip to see you through the festivities, I would highly recommend this one!

Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas guys! Eat, drink, be merry!
