#Blogmas2016 | Part 2 Favourite Winter Lip Colours

Friday, December 09, 2016

Welcome to part two of my favourite winter lipsticks posts. If you missed the first one don’t forget to check that out. The first post is very budget friendly lipsticks that are well worth checking out.

MAC - Russian Red

This is my only MAC lipstick and I only wear it on special occasions. I’m a little afraid of it but it’s the perfect winter red. I always get compliments when I wear it and I’m hoping to wear it lots over the festive season.

Illamasqua - Minx

I feel that I was very lucky to get this colour in a You Beauty box last year. It’s a colour I was thinking about buying and I think it might be one of my all time favourite lipsticks. Last year I rationed myself wearing it towards the end of the year but this is the new mean and I want to get use and enjoyment out of my products. I do wear this during the day and on nights out. It works well as you can add layers to deepen the colour or use a thin light layer to give a hint of colour. This lipstick also lasts a decent amount of time on me considering very few lipsticks like to stay on my lips. 

Clinique - Plum Pop

Another very me lipstick and one that does last a good couple of hours. The colour of this lipstick makes me happy and I think that is the sign of  good purchase. I wore this to work today and had a really decent day. I’m not saying it’s the lipstick but it helped my mood. 

Kiko – 02

Is it just me who doesn’t like lipsticks without names? I feel like they’ve done someone out of a job. (just me then) 

This is a matte lipstick. It’s not too drying and lasted a good 5 hours even through eating and drinking. I got this in the sale and was under £3

NXY Butter Lipstick – Hunk
I don’t think I’ve ever fallen in love with a product without testing it before. As soon as I saw this lipstick I fell. I kept googling and looking for stockists so I could swatch it as I know purples that are not plums don’t work well for me but I ended up buying it online and while it doesn’t get much wear for 9 months of the year I’m always drawn to it in the colder months. 

What are your favourite lipsticks for this time of year? Have we got any the same?

  1. Russian Red is a great color and it's a classic MAC color too. I found this out the other day, that Madonna used this exact color on her Blond Ambition Tour in 1990. That color is proper old skool x
