Festive Drugstore Lipsticks

Good morning and Happy Christmas Eve!! If you’re still out shopping for those last minute gifts…you might see me standing in line too! Yep, I am that person that still has a couple last-minute gifts to grab up before Christmas Day! Oh my, as I’m writing this it just hit me, I completely forgot to get a gift for Princess Ziva and Prince Cooper!! My list seems to never get checked off!

While you are out and about, I have three festive lipsticks that you are going to LOVE! We’re ready to put our best faces forward this festive season, and it all starts with a lip color that slays. I have always been a big fan of bold and bright lipsticks for the festive season, and this year is no different. There are plenty of lipsticks that have impressive staying power and boldly pop on your smoocher. But with so many options available in the market, choosing a color that’ll really brighten up your look through this season can be difficult. If you’re having a hard time deciding which color to opt for, you’ve come to the right place. Plus, I’m adding a chart to help you find your PERFECT RED!!! (and one NUDE) 🙂

Top 3 Lipsticks Voted Best In Festive Looks in 2018

Maybelline New York Color Sensational Red Lipstick, Satin Lipstick, Very Cherry #635

Apparently, this was the biggest selling Red Lipstick in 2018…that alone would give me a little push to try it. This is more of a dark red though, I prefer a brighter red.


Curious About Which Red Looks Good On You? Look No Further!

Talk about a red….boy, I love this one! This contains Omega 3 and Vitamin E, plus the lipstick is enriched with Argan Oil to condition and soften your lips! Your lips are kept soft, smooth, and ultra-hydrated….plus you will be KILLING IT in this shade of RED!


Let’s Lighten It Up a Bit!

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lip by Kate Nude Collection, #40

I love a nude lip color and honestly…a nude can go on any skin color. Not to mention you can wear a nude shade with ANY outfit! One I have found that’s long-lasting and a barely-there hue is the #40 in the Rimmel Line by Kate. Plus you can add other lip colors to this and build an entire new lip color that’s unique just for you!

In the picture above, I have Knot Telling by Limelife by Alcone with Rimmel Kate #40 on top.


This is British Red #350 by L’Oreal Paris/it’s almost identical to Paint the Town Red by Limelife by Alcone

Some Other Great Mentions by Colour Pop…

Lipstick: Colour Pop “On Display”, well, all these from Colour Pop are GREAT!!! But On Display is the  BEST Red lip for anyone. If you are wary about wearing red, put it on like a lip liner then rub your lips together. Then take a paper towel and blot it. Gives you the red look without having or feeling like you are in RED overload.


So there you have it, some of the most wanted and most worn lipsticks out there for the 2018 Holiday Season! I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!! I will be taking a week off to focus on my family and keeping Christ in Christmas! Don’t worry though…I have posts lined up to go out to go out to help with decluttering, organization, journaling and a roadmap on how to read the Bible in a year!!

Also, at the first of the year, I will be starting a new plan on getting healthy!! This will include fitness and a healthy eating plan. I need variety in my life, so I have to eat sensibly, but if I need a cookie…that’s got to fit into my meal planning. And if you are like me, you may have eaten a little too much since Thanksgiving. Sighhhhhh. I’m just going to throw this out there…this ole girl has gained some lbs. since Thanksgiving and something has to GIVE. So if any of you want to get in on an accountability group, I will be more than glad to start one to help encourage us all. I can even start a new Tab in my Main Menu Bar on the Blog for easy access…Let me know if you want in though.

Merry Christmas from B and B Blog, Princess Ziva, Prince Cooper (he does NOT like his picture taken and of course, the little loving Brooklyn that LOVES her picture taken!

From All of US to ALL OF YOU!!! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!
