Hi there lovely ladies! How are you this Friday? Hopefully you have a nice weekend planned? I have to work and then I will relax with writing on my blogs. A nice and cosy weekend. 

It’s mid November and my mood have been christmassy for over a month now – already! I love that the supermarkets, shopping malls and the city is starting to get all decorative. There is just something about Christmas that makes it my favourite time of the year. It’s cosy, everyone is happy and you can spoil your loved ones. 

I also love that you can wear a red lip on a daily basis without people starring too much. Now, I love a red lip but what I love more is a matte red lip. So I thought that I would share my how to get the perfect matte red lip. 

The first product I use is a lip scrub. Exfoliation is a must when I have to apply a matte lip. It removes the dead skin and smooths the lips. I la la love my LUSH Mint Julips. The price is good, the taste is fab and it just works as it should. Now I love a good mint flavoured lip scrub so when my LUSH one rand out I picked this Sara Happ Peppermint up. This is a lot more expensive but dang I love it. 

Next you need some hydration and moisture. I love to apply my Nivea Lip Butter. This one is the original one but any flavour is great. Moisture is the key to a good matte lip. Lastly, you will need the colour – duuh. This NYX Matte Lipstick in Perfect Red is gorgeous! I love the formula, I love the colour. It’s just fab! It glides on and stay put for lots of hours.  

Volá. Perfect matte lips just in time for the Christmas season!

Do you love matte lips as much as I do? Which matte lipstick is your fave?

Lots of love
Marie-Louise xx

    I love matte lip colours although as my skin has been getting drier, I've been loving more glossy formulas x
