My Top Three Favorite Holiday Lipsticks

“Christmas isn’t a season. It’s a feeling.”

– Edna Ferber

Ever since I was little, I always got excited to dress up for Christmas! Once I started doing makeup, creating fun Christmas looks became a hobby for me.

One of my favorite makeup items has always been lipstick (check out my post about how lipstick makes me feel confident). Why not wear some gorgeous lipstick to celebrate Christmas?

Here are my picks for this holiday season:

Too Faced Gingerbread Man Liquified Long Wear Matte Lipstick – If the name isn’t enough to get you in the Christmas spirit, I don’t know what will! It’s a gorgeous shade that seriously looks (and smells) just like gingerbread. If you want something that’s not really red, this is perfect for you.

Ciate London Liquid Velvet Matte Lipstick in Diva – Looking for a classic red lipstick? You’ll love this one! It’s a beautiful bright red shade that you’re guaranteed to get tons of compliments on. Plus, it doesn’t budge when you eat!

Wet n Wild MegaLast Metallic Liquid Catsuit in Siren’s Jewel – If you’re more of the adventurous type, a green metallic lipstick will be a fun choice for Christmas. This one is budget friendly, a stunning color and metallic, which I think is perfect for the holidays!

If you’re a makeup addict like me, I hope you’ll love these lipsticks as much as I do!

Dairy-Free Holiday Treat Guide

“We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup”

-Buddy the Elf

I know not everyone out there is dairy-free or vegan but if you are or you just want to try something new, here’s my guide to some yummy holiday treats sans dairy:

Skinny Pop White Chocolate Peppermint PopcornI was definitely hesitant to try this popcorn since I’m usually not a sweets kinda girl but OH. MY. GOD! This is incredibly addicting! It tastes like peppermint marshmallows, which just makes it impossible to only eat a few pieces.

Califia Farms Peppermint Mocha Cold Brew CoffeeIf you love peppermint mochas from Starbucks, you will die over how delicious this cold brew is! It’s not overly sweet and it’s a great way to get your caffeine fix while being festive.

Kite Hill Chive Cream Cheese This isn’t just for Christmas BUT I think this would be a great addition to your holiday get together. Even non vegans will love this cream cheese (seriously…even my boyfriend loves it). Put it out with some crackers and your holiday party will go off without a hitch.

Celestial Seasonings Gingerbread Spic Holiday TeaBeing a tea addict, I had to include a holiday tea on this list! I love gingerbread and this herbal tea has a nice spice to it that’ll get you in the mood for Christmas. Plus look how cute this packaging is!

BarkTHINS Dark Chocolate MintAgain, not usually a sweets fan but there’s something about dark chocolate and peppermint that I love! The combo of these two flavors is way too good to pass up, even if you’re not a huge fan of dark chocolate.

Let Thy Food Chile con QuesoOne thing I miss about eating dairy is queso! Sure this isn’t just a holiday treat, but I love this vegan queso. Put it out for your Christmas party and everyone will love it guaranteed!

Califia Farms Almond Milk NogYou didn’t think I would forget dairy-free eggnog, now did you? If you miss the real thing like I do, you’ll go crazy over this one! It tastes just like actual eggnog and that’s a win in my book.

It’s always a challenge to find delicious dairy-free options but I know you will all love these picks.

Now go get your dairy-free treats on!
