Preen Tries: Is your lipstick Noche Buena-proof?

Christmas parties have been happening left and right, but the biggest food celebration of them all will probably be Noche Buena. It is a Christmas Eve celebration usually done after mass and always, always with ridiculous amounts of food. 

A lot of eating, gift-giving (and opening), chatting, and taking of photos will happen, so we know how you all get ready so you can look good and cute at any given time of the celebration. In that light, we thought of testing out our faves and see how they fare against our favorite holiday dishes—yes, lechon included.  

Any favorite lipstick/s that caught your eye? Shop the following in time for the party!
