Ever since Kylie Jenner emerged with her gorgeous pout, the girl world has been obsessed with achieving their own pillowy lips. Nude lips have been seriously big, but there are so many more gorgeous lipstick looks you can wear to work, this time of year we love to try some new shades that make us feel the festive spirit.

These shades will absolutely get you through the week and help you count down the days until Christmas!


The Perfect Red.


Nothing says Christmas like red lipstick. MAC’s shades are creamy, long-lasting and super pigmented. This festive red is matte, perfect for the office with understated eye makeup because it’s not too dramatic, and has a slightly orange undertone and will take you to after-work Christmas parties too! MAC Red Rock Lipstick available here.


Honey Huede Nude.


If red is a bit too brash for you, a muted, honey nude is an essential office lip color. Paired with a flick of black eyeliner this is the perfect sophisticated look, what we love about this shade is it’s incredibly hydrating shine. It has natural antioxidants, meaning you can kiss goodbye to clumpy lipstick that bleeds. It’s a brown nude that flatters every skin tone. Charlotte Tilbury Hepburn Honey available here.


Subtle Pinky-Red.


Somewhere in between red and nude, sits the perfect shade of pinky red. This is perfect for work environments where dramatic lip colors can look a little overdone, but a great choice if you want healthy, hydrated lips. This particular shade contains hyaluronic acid to give you a seriously hydrated shine, without being too OTT! NARS Moon Matte Lipstick is limited edition, and available here.


The New Nude.


We know that not all nudes were created equal, a pinky nude is not one size fits all and looks way too light on darker skin tones. Likewise, if you are fair with warm undertones and you want a tiny injection of color, a brown shade is the perfect antidote. This lipstick is infused with vitamin E so it’s super hydrating and velvety. Illamasqua Glamore Lipstick in Buff is available here.


A Shimmering Pink.


This time of year calls for a certain amount of sparkle. Inject it into your makeup routine without being over the top by going for a soft pinkish color with a slight shimmer. This shade includes rare and exotic ingredients including soja seeds and chamomilla flower oil, for a creamy application that’s totally blended and luminous. Tom Ford Sweet Mystery available here.
