Chrissy Teigen decided to create her own red lipstick after a disagreement with John Legend.

The Lip Sync Battle co-host has released several capsule collections with beauty brand Becca Cosmetics in recent years, with her latest launch entitled the Becca x Chrissy Cravings Collection.

One kit, which includes four colours of Lip Icing Glow Gloss, contains a fire engine red shade named Candy Cane, and Chrissy has now shared that she made the colour to win a bet with her singer husband.

“When I first met John, he made some comment about how he doesn’t love red lipstick, so I made it my mission to find a shade that would work for me,” she told Allure.com. “I wanted to sell him on it, because I think there’s nothing sexier than on a night out with a beautiful red lip. We ended up with a fiery red lip that finally changed his mind.”

Chrissy’s selection of lip colours includes a mauve, golden peach and rust shade too. While the Becca x Chrissy Teigen Glow Kitchen Kit has eyeshadows, a Confectionary Glow Powder and a lipstick, with the formulas fragranced with a very sweet scent.

“They all smell very delicious – we went with a vanilla cake-like scent this time around,” the 32-year-old smiled. “I don’t think there is anything better than walking into a kitchen or somebody’s home during the holidays and being able to tell what they’re making. It makes you so happy.”

Mother-of-two Chrissy is a big fan of all the shades she’s created in partnership with Becca. But if there was one product she had to take with her on holiday, it would be a toss-up between sunscreen and her Becca x Chrissy Teigen Body & Hair Oil.

“Of course, I’m screaming (that I want to bring my) glow body oil, but that seems very vain. I want to glow and glisten and have a sparkly decolletage, but I mean, sunblock seems good?” she smiled.
