5 Holiday Red Lipsticks

Seriously to me there is nothing more festive than a red lip. Now granted I love bright lipstick but this time of year there is something extra special about a swipe of red over the lips. Maybe it’s the contrast between darker winter colors and the brightness of red but either way I love it. 
So here is a list of a few of my favorite reds that you can try for the holidays. 
I am sorry that one of these is discontinued but it is such a favorite of mine I just couldn’t leave it out.

1. Ilia Beauty Tinted Lip Conditioner in Bang Bang
A great red that is on the sheer side. This can be built up in intensity and looks great over a red lip pencil.

2. Jane Iredale PureMoist Lip Color in Carrie
A classic red lipstick, this is what I wear when I want that 1950s red lip. 

3. Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Tannin
This is a gorgeous deep matte red that has a slight wine undertone. This has excellent wear time.

4. Revolution Organics Lipgloss in Freedom
This packs some serious punch for a lipgloss. If you’re a fan of reds you need this in your life. 

5. Jane Iredale PureMoist Lip Color in Joy
*tear* The one that got away. I have one little tube left of this and it was my favorite winter lip color. It’s the best of both worlds between berry and red. If you know a dupe for this please share!

And last but not least the one I’m lusting after

It looks like a fantastic brickish red. As I don’t have one I of course need it.

What is your favorite holiday lip color? What kind of makeup do you pair it with?

What’s in my purse?

So over on Pemberly Jones Pam posted a photo a couple days ago of her purse dump.
 I thought it would be totally fun to start a natural beauty tag for what we carry around in our bags day to day. Me, I’m a total lip product hoarder. 

See the photo below for evidence. 



3 lip balms, 2 tinted balms, 2 glosses, 4 lipsticks, 2 stains and 2 matte lip pencils later…

*Ahem* My name is Alexis and I have a lip product problem. 
In my defense I leave the house sans lips (mr.bunny declares them “sticky”) so I like to have a variety to choose from once I get to work. 

So what’s in your purse? Use hashtag #greenbeautypurse and tell me.

I love this blush! This is a really vibrant “I just had a great workout” color. Kind of a pinky coral cool. 
It’s super smooth in texture and wears beautifully through my work day. This color is limited in a set I got at Sephora.

I got a sample of this in my last Spirit Beauty Lounge order. It’s a rich berry stain that leaves lips glossy and hydrated. It’s been my go-to for fall lip color. I’m getting the full size for sure.

In all seriousness, I think this is my holy grail of Argan Oils. This is the sample size of oil but I know that I have the full size on my wish list. It has an amazing consistency and smells incredible. I don’t know what it is about this one but my other argan oils haven’t smelled nearly as lovely. Seriously love for this here. 

Speaking of amazing smelling things this is divine! I got this in my Goodebox last month and it has steadily become a favorite night treatment for my skin.  To me it’s slightly richer than my Argan oil making it great for a night oil. It sinks into my skin overnight making me feel glowing and gorgeous in the morning.

This is a great color! It’s blackened brown with a gray tinge. Fantastic longevity for a cream shadow. I mean girls night out longevity. It totally surprised me with that. I love wearing it smudge along my lash line or as a winged liner. 

This is my newest find but I love it already. I’ve been having a few breakouts due to the temperature change and was looking for a lighter weight concealer than my rms or Vapour concealers. This is a very thin almost watery texture but has amazing coverage. I only need the tiniest dot on a blemish to make it disappear.
