The Lipstick Bandits Holiday Edition is near and dear to my heart because I get to play with glitter. This time around we are layering products over a red lipstick to create a sparkly red lip.
When we came up with this challenge, I thought I was doomed. None of my five lipglosses (yeah… only five) were sparkly enough for the job. I had to be more creative and pulled out Sonia Kashuk Eye Quad in Bronzed Beauty from a swap from fellow Lipstick Bandit Danielle. The gold glitter was chunky and sparkly enough for me.

To get my sparkly holiday lips, I started with Giorgio Armani Rouge d’Armani in Rouge 406 as a base. I added a small amount of Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss in Fatale to create a sticky base, then patted the glitter all over for… well, pure awesomeness.
Not the lowest maintenance of lip looks, but holy crap; seeing my lips like this make me want to kick myself and yell out expletives.
