New Celebrate:MK fashion columnist Danie-Jade offers some Valentine’s Day-themed lipstick choices for your hot dates…
February has snuck up on us pretty quickly which means it’s the month of Valentine’s Day.
I’m personally not a fan of the “holiday” and would much rather skip it and have two Easters or something because who wouldn’t love double the amount of Easter eggs?!
But since Valentine’s is such a big occasion, it would only be right to write a column around it. Valentine’s Day has the theme of pink and red – two of my favourite lipstick shades.
Red is such a bold statement to wear on the lips whereas pink is a lot more subtle and day to day. It’s hard to find a lipstick that will last through a dinner, cinema date or even a night out with friends so here are my top three Valentine’s lipstick choices.
Mac Matte Lipstick – Lady Danger
I love a matte lipstick because I’m such a messy eater at times and so if I can apply a lipstick that’s long lasting and doesn’t need reapplying after spaghetti then I’m all for it.
MAC lipsticks are my all time favourite and they have some great shades but Lady Danger is your classic must have red. It applies so nicely, isn’t drying on the lips and is very affordable at £17.50.
Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour – Fire Starter
If you prefer a lip stain that you don’t necessarily need a lip liner for, then this option you’ll love. Rimmel London do some great liquid lipsticks in both matte and satin but for Valentine’s I’d definitely recommend a matte again.
Fire Starter is more of a deep red compared to MAC’s Lady Danger so if you like a deeper tone then this is for you. At £6/£7 this is the most affordable option for a Valentine’s lip but is also ideal for the colder months too.
Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick – Pillow Talk
If, like me, you love a classic nude lipstick then Pillow Talk by Charlotte Tilbury is for you. Not everyone is a fan of red lipstick so a nude is wearable for everyone.
This lipstick has a subtle pink tone which is perfect for Valentine’s and has a satin feel on the lips so it doesn’t feel too dry. This is the pricier option at £25 but the quality is insane and it is such an easy wearable nude.
