trilogy of error

I'm having some trouble finding the perfect shade of red for Christmas. Each one is either a berry shade, or a bright red, or brown, but I just want a true, deep red with a velvety, matte finish, like in my new favourite photo:

I also enjoy the look of some of these...

My usual Shoppers Drug Mart brands (Covergirl, Revlon, etc.) just don't have an intense enough pigment, though, or the proper shade. I'm definitely wanting to splurge on this as a treat for myself, so I'll end up getting something along the lines of Estee Lauder or Mac. My dream would be to get Chanel!

No matter what, I think I'm going to get one of these gorgeous Nars lipliners to go with it, though...

I got some other much needed makeup, though. Such as this Gosh eyeshadow quad in Platinum. The silvers and white are so stunning and sheer, and I can't wait to use them for my Christmas look.

I also got this gorgeous deep red nail polish, which makes me feel especially festive!

I love Mac's MAC RED. It's a mate color but it is VERY BRIGHT. It might be a little brighter then you are looking for. I don't wear lipstick a lot but MAC is my "go-to" brand for lipstick.
