The weathers gotten colder, the cosy clothes have crept their way to the front of your cupboard again and everything get’s darker way earlier. What I love best about Winter though are the dark colours that come out and are more acceptable to wear. Today I’m going to show you four Winter lipsticks that I love to wear around this time of year (and all year to be honest…).
Since moving out for University, I only actually took my main lipsticks I wear to halls with me, and left behind quite a lot and I haven’t purchased any new ones in a while. I’m hoping to this soon! I have some swatches and pictures of the colours on. I’ll just go straight ahead and show you’s!
COLOURS FROM TOP TO BOTTOM (ALL MAC): CYBER, DARK SIDE, LUSH LIFE, RUBY WOO
FIRST LOOK: RUBY WOO
I used to have Viva Glam II but I lost that and I was so heartbroken because it was a matte red. When I tried to re-purchase, the MAC I was in didn’t have it. So I got Ruby Woo instead as it was another matte red, and I love it. I also got the lipliner with it because it was such a bold colour. This is such a festive lipstick to add a pop of colour to any outfit.
SECOND LOOK: LUSH LIFE
We are now heading to the more berry side of colours, and Lush Life is definitely one of them. This is part of the satin range I think, and it’s actually not in your typical lipstick packaging. It’s slightly wider. (Annoying for trying to fit into my lipstick holder, but still pretty!)
THIRD LOOK: DARK SIDE
It wasn’t until writing this blog post that I noticed how close these two colours were. There is a slight difference, and I know this sounds silly – but it sometimes looks different depending on what you’re wearing. Girls might understand that. But yes, I am one of those people who have like four lipsticks of basically the same shade because why not. This one is a bit of a nicer consistency however, and easier to apply.
FOURTH LOOK: CYBER
By this point, my lips were well and truly stained from applying so many colours and taking them off. This is probably the boldest colour I have, and only really ever comes out in Winter. This makes any outfit look more edgy and I love wearing it with dark colours when I’m going out. My only fault with this one is that when it starts to come off, it’s a lot more noticeable just because it’s a bold colour – so I end up with like, purple on the outside of my lips and nothing on the inside after eating and drinking haha!
And thats all my winter lipsticks done! I hope you enjoyed this post, and make sure you check out Morgies blog too! She’s currently doing Blogmas and I fully praise her for that because that is hella hard to keep up with. I know I couldn’t!
Until next time…
