For me its officially winter! Its so cold here in the UK! And December means its time to dig out those festive reds and beautiful berry shade lipsticks! Here are my top lipsticks for winter this year:
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in the shade 663 Va Va Violet // £7.99
How have I not tried this range of lipsticks before? They are amazing! This shade in particular is a beautiful deep purple colour that looks scary in the bullet but it translates to such a beautiful colour on the lips! The formula of this lipstick is so creamy and comfortable on the lips. This has a slight sheen to it but it lasted around 4-5 hours before the colour started to fade. Which I think is pretty amazing for a hydrating non matte lipstick!
MAC Matte Lipstick in the shade Stone // £15.50
MAC Matte lipsticks are my favourite formula and this is no exception! The shade is muted greyish taupe brown, with slight warm undertones. The has a rich opague colour in true MAC lipstick style. I love this shade I've never seen anything like it! The lasting power is good - it lasted around 3-4 hours. And this will be a definite staple this winter!
Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick in the Shade 342 Mauve Mania // £6.99 POST
Sometimes I find a dark matte lip too high maintance or I'm just feeling something a bit more subtle I reach for this! Its a lovely pinky purple with mauve undertones. This isn't completely matte and the formula is so creamy and comfortable on the lips!
Maybelline Colour sensational Matte Lipstick in the shade Divine Wine // £6.99 POST
I can't rave about these matte lipsticks enough. I have a whole post on why I love them here. But this shade in particular is just perfect for winter / Christmas! Its a beautiful deep red wine colour! The formula is insane for a lipstick that cost less £10! Its so creamy, so comfortable and long wearing!
Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick in the shade 1993 // £15.50 POST
This has been one my favourite go to lipsticks throughout autumn and will be taking into winter! Its a medium to dark brown colour with taupe undertones. This looks stunning on the lips and the pigmentation and lasting power make a perfect winter option!
Loreal Colour Riche Lipstick in the shade Eva Pure Red // £6.99
This is my perfect festive red! The colour has burnt orange undertones. I find that many reds don't really suit me but this one does beautifully! Loreal has made a winning formula that sits in between a matte and satin finish, that feels so velvety and comfortable on the lips! Perfect for Christmas day or festive parties!
Revlon Color Burst Lacque Balm in the shade 140 Coy // £7.99
This is dark brown nude colour with a gloss finish. I had to throw in more of nude colour, especially for days / parties when theres a heavy eye look and lips are kept simple! And because on more of the brown side than nude its perfect for the barely there but put together look!
Born Pretty Store Long Lasting Lip Gloss in the shade 33 // £1.50 * POST
I have no idea why this is called a lip gloss, Its definitely a matte liquid lipstick. But the odd name aside I love this! Its a deep red colour with brown undertones - perfect for this time of year. But it's the formula that makes this a winner in my book. Its matte velvet finish, that literally lasts all day! I put this on in the morning and the colour is still visable at the end of the day without any touch ups!
So that's my favourite lipsticks for winter! What are yours?
Until next time...
