The festive season is my favourite time of year for one particular reason – it gives me ample reason to wear a full-blown glam look any day of the week. That said, it would just be wrong if I made a list of festive makeup must-haves and didn’t include hella-bold lip colours. After a summer of Kool-Aid bright lip stains and sheer watermelon-tinted balms, suddenly the time feels right to reach for a deep, dark, saturated lipstick that packs an excess of drama and style in one gleaming bullet.
If you’ve been contemplating which lipstick to add to your shopping cart this festive season, you’re in luck because the POPxo power trip lip kit has arrived. The lipstick kit has started something of a revolution across the internet, with every beauty savant out there singing its praises. It comes with three high-fashion dark hues that qualify as minor (and totally worth-it) investments. And while they won’t keep you warm as the temperature drops, they do look really hot. The shades pair really well with desi ensembles and are becoming a year-round beauty trend. I find that even just a swipe of these vibrant lip shades will take your festive look from regular to remarkable. It’s a true makeup legend that passed the vibe check, the smudge test, and the flake inspection, making them the best festive lipsticks of 2021. So, go ahead and treat yourself to one of these shades and start wearing it, like, now.
Trust me, stunning is an understatement!
Power trip is a mini Lipstick kit that comes with 3 creamy-matte bold lipstick hues – a true red, a bright pink and a deep red lipstick – one for every mood. The colours in this mini lipstick set will help you channel your inner boss babe. The shades are equally sexy and edgy yet somehow refined – making this kit the ultimate makeup power move. One swipe is all you need to create a look that’s always on-trend. This top-rated newcomer or soon-to-be iconic lip kit is spiked with Vitamin E which means it does not dry out your lips in the process. And can we just talk about the cute packaging? I’m obsessed.
I’d be lying if I said that packaging plays no part in choosing a new lip colour, but this lipstick kit has so much to offer than just a cute insta-worthy packaging. It’s super-pigmented without feeling like you’re wearing anything at all, and it feels buttery soft on the lips. If you love festive lip colours equal parts deep and moody, this kit has you written all over it. The versatile shades look gorge on all skin tones. It’s one of my fave drugstore buys, which means not only are you going to want to stock up on this formula, but thanks to the affordable price, you’ll actually be able to, too.

Start by applying the lipstick on the center of your upper lip, just below the cupid’s bow and then swipe across to the outer corners. Repeat on your bottom lip for a smooth and even application.
