Lancôme has unofficially deemed it necessary to wear a bold, matte lip this holiday season - and I'm not mad about it. I actually have to say that a cozy turtleneck, a sexy floral scent, and a pop of color on the lips is one of the easiest looks to pull off as well. 

You may be wondering how, but the new Color Design Matte Lip Crayons have made painting your pout any shade you please as easy as twist, outline, and scribble in. These mechanical lip crayons pack a serious punch in the pigment department, but manage to be lightweight and creamy enough to not dry out your lips - which is nothing short of amazing. Not to mention, the angled crayon nib makes it super easy to precisely apply the crayons without making a mess of things. The colors were designed for the "it girl" in us all, and that's something I can get behind. My personal favorite bold shade in the range is called Contain Yourself - but it's going to be a bit hard to because it's just so good.

And because one is never enough, Lancôme is treating us to two densely formulated lip options this season. The L'Absolu Rouge Définition lipsticks come in a chic gold-lined black tube with that satisfying magnetic closure we all love - but the formulas are what we're here to talk about. These lipsticks are highly pigmented and rich with a demi-matte finish, meaning they still have a touch of moisture and are not quite as flat in appearance. But, they stay on for at least 4 hours without having to be reapplied and make lips appear fuller and smooth throughout wear. What's also impressive is the shape of the bullet, as it's angled at the tip so that you can apply the color more precisely - something I think is totally necessary when you don't have a lip liner in the exact color handy.

To really get the holiday vibes going - spritz on the the La Vie est Belle perfume. It means "life is beautiful" in French, and I think it really embodies that overall feeling of happiness and joy, which is especially perfect for this time of the year. The fragrance is the first ever iris gourmand and is warm and comforting like a traditional floral oriental scent, but has a unique hint of Patchouli that makes it a bit effortless and rebellious. Very Parisian chic.
