I love when the weather gets colder and lip colors get bolder. We just had our first snow of the season and it's got me ready for new lipstick shades! Wintertime is perfect for deep plum, mauve, or a bold traditional red lip. I think the darker purple shades mimic the mood of winter, while a pop of red looks beautiful with the snow. I tend to wear cool toned lip colors during these months. And as with any season a nude lip is essential. Here’s my top 15:
Exorcism- Kat Von D everlasting liquid lipstick: First off these liquid lipsticks are amazing! Tons of pigmentation and they will stay on the lips through anything! This color is a great vampy lipstick. It’s a very dark burgundy. Mostly purple with a hint of warm red.
She Devil- NYX: Nyx is a high quality drugstore brand. These lip cream crayons are bold and matte. She Devil is true deep, cool-toned purple.
#14-Sephora cream lip stain: I LOVE this color for winter! It is thee perfect plum shade. I think it would look good on all skin tones and the formula is almost the same as the Kat Von D ones.
Vivian- NARS audacious lipstick: These lipsticks are pricy, but if you love the color, I do think it’s worth the investment. They are creamy, highly pigmented and have great staying power. Vivian is a beautiful shade of cranberry. It’s not too red and not too purple. A lot of people can wear this shade because it’s not too dark.
Sugar Plum Fairy- Wet & Wild: The matte Wet & Wild lipsticks are some of my favorites! Great color payoff and super affordable. This shade isn’t as wearable as some others, but it’s a perfect pop a color for winter. It’s a bright pinky purple that looks very festive.
Dominique- NARS audacious lipstick: This is such a unique shade. It’s a cool toned lavender that I think looks beautiful during the cold months, especially on paler skin tones.
#13- Sephora cream lip stain: clearly I have a thing for liquid lipsticks.. This is a perfect mauve shade that is great year round! Perfect for days you don’t want quite as bold of a lip.
Trap- Colourpop ultra matte liquid lipstick: Another matte mauve shade. This one is more cool toned than #13 by Sephora, but still great for everyday wear.
Rose Femme- Milani: Milani is another great affordable drugstore brand. This is a beautiful, creamy everyday shade. It is pinky mauve toned that just enhances your natural lip color.
Angeles- Ofra long lasting liquid lipstick: Sorry for those out there who aren’t a fan of matte lips! Here’s another matte liquid lipstick is a perfect nude shade. It is more of a pink toned nude rather than a peach toned nude. Slightly on the cool side, so again great for those cold winter months.
Cruella- NARS velvet matte lip pencil: This is my all time favorite red lip. It’s not too warm and not too cool. A great true red. Mine is in a trial size but I will definitely be purchasing the full size when it runs out.
Bad Blood- Urban Decay: Another great red shade which I love to wear when it’s snowy out. This one is slightly brighter than Cruella, but both are great reds to wear.
Cinnamon Spice- Wet & Wild: I wear this red a lot. It is a warm toned red without going orange. It has a hint of brown and a hint of burgundy to it, making it look true to it’s name.
R02- Sephora rouge cream lipstick: Sephora lipsticks have impressed me with their quality and affordability. This red is on the warm side with orange and brown undertones. I’m not sure if they make this color anymore, but check out Sephora’s lipsticks for one similar.
Stone Fox- NYX liquid suede lipstick: This color is for those wanting something outside of the box. It is a really unique blue grey lipstick. It is more of a slate blue than true blue. If you like a vampy lip, it’s actually very wearable.
