Kim Kardashian faced huge backlash over Christmas after she shared her gorgeous festive family portraits. 

In the pictures, the family wears all black ensembles, except for Kim who opted for a statement white figure-hugging gown. 

However, all anyone could talk about in the comments section was the bright red lipstick that Kim's daughter, five-year-old North was wearing.

Kim was criticised heavily for allowing her daughter to wear makeup at such a young age. However, Kim explained on Twitter that North loves makeup, and that Kim decided to allow her daughter to wear the lipstick to the annual Kardashian Christmas party as it was a special occasion. 

'She picked it though! It’s a special occasion,' she tweeted. 

Kim also revealed that the lipstick is a special red shade that will be released by KKW Beauty very soon.

Some fans in the comments section see no harm in North wearing lipstick because most children experiment with things like that, and they too did the same thing as kids.

Others think she is too young to have access to real makeup, and take issue with the face that they feel North is helping her mum sell her beauty products.

Others criticised Kim for straightening her daughter's naturally curly hair.  

Kim previously told Refinery29 that North adored playing with makeup and getting creative with her look.

'I already know North is into makeup for sure.'

'She had friends over this weekend and some of her girlfriends came and they were just all in her room, giving themselves makeovers.'

Kim also responded to the criticism by uploading a video of North playing with makeup. 

In typical child-like fashion, North is just copying her mum, adding deep blue eyeshadow and contouring powder to her nose in a liberal manner. 

We're pretty sure we drew all over ourselves as kids with our mum’s lippie, so maybe just let kids be kids – and if that means letting them get creative with a bit of lipstick, so be it. 



There’s a new beauty craze on the scene and we are a little scared of it if we’re honest! Having said that, we’re also completely intrigued…

If you, like so many of us, have tried nearly everything to rid your eyes of dark circles, then the beauty world may have the answer for you.

No, it isn’t a fancy cream or some kind of terrifying surgery, it’s actually most definitely in your beauty routine already.

Red. Lipstick.

Yes, red lipstick used as an under-eye concealer is said to make dark circles disappear! But is it too good to be true…?

Many of YouTube’s beauty bloggers have been giving the craze a go, some are in favour whilst others claim it’s just an extra step you don’t really need.

We took a look at two of these bloggers; the first being Deepica Mutyala whose video on using red lipstick as concealer has gone viral with more than four million views.

 We also watched a video by beauty blogger Elko who says it’s just more effort than it is worth. 

Will you be trying out this new beauty trend for getting rid of those pesky dark circles? 



Red lips are the ultimate fashion statement and one that is NEVER out of style. If you want to lift your look to the next level and add some serious flair, a quick slick of red lippy will do the job!

Here are our picks of the ultimate red lipsticks on the market. Yes, some may be on the pricey side but there are some make-up products that require and investment and we reckon red lips is one of them!

The cult-classic
MAC Cosmetic’s lipstick in Ruby Woo can be found in most women’s make-up bags and is a definite must-have for nights out. 

Available at Brown Thomas, BT or the MAC store at €19.50

The innovator
Lime Crime’s Veleveteen in Red Velvet is a relatively new arrival on the market. The special thing about this product is that is goes on as a liquid with an applicator – somewhat like a gloss – before changing to a deep, matte that won’t budge. Basically it’s magic. 

Available from lovemakeup.co.uk at £13.50

The icon
Revlon Fire and Ice is a bright tomatoey-red loved by women worldwide– and it’s no wonder why. The shade, which is a perfect red suits most tones and is inexpensive.

Available from Boots at €10.69

The celebrity-favourite
NARS Velvet Matte lip pencil was made famous by Taylor Swift whose red lips are becoming part of her statement look as the months go by. However, it was another famous face who inspired Taylor to choose the shade, as she said herself: “I bought it ‘cos I heard on the radio that Hilary Duff uses it. And Hilary Duff is a magical princess.”

Available from ASOS at €27.14



There is just something about a red lip that oozes sex appeal and confidence. So much so that the most viewed YouTube lips video, How to get a Perfect Red Pout, has been watched over eight million times – it is the most commanding lip colour after all.

However, choosing the perfect shade is never easy – something that L’Oréal Paris is well aware of. So to take the fear and unknown out of choosing a red to suit you, they have created, with the help of Eva Longoria, Blake Lively, Julienne More and Liya Kebede, their Collection Exclusive Pure Reds range – a matte colour that slides on to lips for an impressive, easy-to-wear finish.

To celebrate Collection Exclusive Pure Reds, they are also launching the first ever virtual make-up tester, Makeup Genius, this October. This revolutionary app service will enable women to virtually test make-up products using their mobile phone or tablet as a simulated mirror. Women can try a whole new make-up look, or scan a premium and innovative before and after service.

Lynsey Alexander, L’Oréal Paris make-up artist, has the following advice for those struggling to chose the right shade: If you have black hair, go for pure reds that stand out and make teeth look whiter. Brunettes should opt for reds with a clean orange undertone complimenting the hair’s warmth. For those with red hair, choose a red with a pink, plumy or blue undertone that will complement the rusty golden tones in your hair and finally, just like those with black hair, blondes can choose a red that stands out and makes teeth look whiter.

With their new app and hundreds of shades, choosing your perfect red has never been easier.



Red lipstick isn’t something that every woman is comfortable wearing. Fair tones think it’s too bright and darker tones think it doesn’t suit them.

But, when there are just some lipsticks that somehow suit the majority of women and because they never try red lipstick, they don’t even know it.

Here are our top 3 reds:
