My Top 7 Winter Lipstick Picks!

Hi Guys!,

I thought I'd do a post on my favourite lipsticks for this winter as I always love wearing lipstick and especially at this time of year as you get to crack out the darker shades. 

Originally this post was my top five winter lipstick picks, but then I couldn't whittle it down to five so its now seven...

The Purple Tones:



MUA Matte Lipstick in Wild Berry : £1 - Here
 I've done a review on this range here. It's one of my favourites as it is quite sheer but its perfect for having a bold colour without it being quite so bold, if that makes sense. Its just good for the days that you want a bit of colour but not too much! You can also win it in my giveaway just now too.

MAC Lipstick in Rebel: £15 - Here
  This is the most pink toned of the bunch, also the most expensive out of my three favourites. It's part of the satin line of lipsticks for MAC, its great for pale skins like me as it doesn't wash you out too much. you can also make it less bold just by patting it into the lips so its not as dark.

Collection Lipstick in 3 Revenge: £2.99 - Here
This is probably the darkest one, and for £2.99 it is crazily pigmented! plus it lasts so long on the lips I actually found it eventually had to be taken off with make up remover to get the last traces off, so for me I think that's great as topping up lipstick, well I forget to do it. its got a pink undertone to it for sure.

The Classic's:

 

Rimmel Matte Kate Moss Lipstick in 107: £5.49 - Here
This is one of the most raved about lipsticks at this time of year, I love the matte Finnish as you may of noticed I like the matte finishes, it lasts amazingly well! and doesn't fade in a horrible way either. I cant say I'm the biggest fan of the smell but the shade definitely wins me over, its definitely more of a pink toned red too.

MAC Lipstick in Hue: £15 - Here
Hue is a Glaze finish lipstick for MAC, which usually I'm not a fan of but for a nude shade it makes it so easy to wear, its quite moisturising, again it has a pink undertone to it, you wouldn't think I prefer a blue undertone after all these pink ones haha! 

The Liquid Lipsticks:


NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in San Paulo: £5.50 - Here
An old favourite which you'll probably of seen me talking about loads on here! These smell amazing, can be layered up to make a dark matte lip or you can put it over a balm and make a sheer red lip, pink undertones and is amazing on pale skin again. probably one of my all time favourites. its so easy to apply as well and doesn't dry out my lips.

MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer in Reckless: £3 - Here
This is a new very pigmented favourite! at the moment I'm yet to wear it fully by its self as I keep sheering it out, but for the price this is amazing! I've done a review on it here. and yes once again I think its more of a pink toned red haha!

(Swatches: Left to Right - San Paulo, Reckless, Hue, 107, Rebel, Seduction and Wild Berry)

I hope this shows you some of the great lipsticks out there at this time of year!

    1. If I could I'd wear the dark shades all year round I think but they are definitely more suited to this time of year!
