I feel like we’ve been somewhat lucky this year and that it’s only really within the last week or so that the cold weather has really begun to hit. I’m not complaining though, I’m much more of a winter kinda gal. The colder months may mean chapped lips but despite this I love going for the darker hues. Obviously I can’t say I’ve been too original with this list, it really is hard to steer away from the plummy purple tones this time of year, but I tried guys!
My number one choice for festive parties is undoubtedly Revlon’s ‘Wild Orchid.’ This is a gorgeous pinky purple shade with blue undertones and a slight shimmer, sounds like a recipe for disaster but it really is flattering on all skin tones and is a really unique colour. I feel like I don’t often recommend Revlon lip products on the blog but they are fab so I would check them out if you haven’t already.
Obviously a winter lipstick post wouldn’t be complete without a nod to the classic Rimmel 107. This lipstick doesn’t really need a long description as I’m sure you’ve heard it all before but I always feel v.proud of the fact that I’ve managed to get all my girl pals to buy it.
Now let’s take a break from the purples and go for a nude. My favourite is another Rimmel one this time in the shade ‘Asia.’ This is a bit Kylie Jenner-esque but slightly more flattering for the average Joe. I purchased this in a bargain bin during my first year and it’s been pulled out each winter ever since.
Finally is a shade I’ve spoken about many times (full review here) but this definitely needs a nod for the party season. Sleek Matte Me Lip Creams are some of my favourites, and its longevity is the perfect compliment to a few glasses of wine during Christmas parties.
What are your favourite winter lipsticks?
* Just a quick note to say I’m sorry for the lack of posts over the past month. If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll know my computer died and due to my finances I could not afford one until now, hopefully this, coupled with the Christmas holidays ahead means I’ll be getting back into blogging!
