Christmas time is right around the corner and whether you’ve got festive parties or events with friends and family (or even if you’re working most of Christmas… I feel your pain) it’s the perfect excuse to try out the dark lip trend! Nothing says Christmas time quite like a berry lip; and we’ve put together 5 amazing products to try from some popular Korean brands, which are sure to get your make-up just as ready for the holidays as you are!

While coming up with 5 of the lipsticks to feature, we took into account different formulations and finishes such as matte and satin (even different undertones!) as well as completely different product types from crayon to traditional lipstick bullets. This’ll mean whatever your personal lipstick preference you’ll be sure to find one perfect for you in our list! Keep reading below to find out which products we’ve listed.


1)Etude House- ‘Dear My Wish Lips Talk’
Etude House always win over my heart with their super cute packaging, and the deep warm undertone lipstick ‘RD302’ is perfect for the festive period! The lipstick itself has a hydrating formula and build-able coverage; making it easy to go for a more stained look or even a full blown vampy lip style!


2) Tony Moly- ‘Fruit Princess Lip Gloss’
If you find lipsticks are a bit too full-on for your tastes, why  not try Tony Moly’s  ‘Fruit Princess’ gloss? The quirky packaging is sure to grab your attention and the tinted red shades (Take a look at #6 especially!) are a sure fire way to get that festive look without feeling too bold.


3) 3 Concept Eyes- ‘Jumbo Lip Crayon’
If you’re a big fan of a bold matte lip- then look no further than 3CE’s jumbo lip crayon! The surprisingly creamy formulation and wide range of shade makes them a product to try. For the winter period, check out shade ‘Dubious’ it’s the perfect dark wine-stained red. Sure to be a festive favourite!

4) Chateau Labiotte ‘Wine Lip Tint’
This is definitely something completely different to the usual make-up products we feature. The popular lip tint is actually infused with real wine! The formula itself is incredibly pigmented and the range of colours offers a plethora of red berry tones to pick from; the only question is which to go for!


5) Holika Holika x Gudetama- ‘Lazy & Joy All Night Tint and Lip Oil’
If Holika Holika’s first collection range with Gudetama wasn’t enough for you- they released part 2! And within this second part release, there’s 4 dark and hydrating lip tints to pick from. Shades ‘RD01’ and ‘RD04’ would be perfect matches for the season, but within the shade selection you’d be sure to find one perfect for your own tastes!
