Hello all you beauties and beauty loving fans,
With the winter now setting in in most parts of the globe except for the southern hemisphere where it will be summer, here is some lipstick warmth to add to the cold months.
This season, brings to my mind, hot soups, cold winds, rain, snow, chocolates, cozy evenings in front of the fireplace , heavy knitwear and warm blankets.
The cold also reminds us of chapped and dry lips, making lip balms and creamier formulas more likely to be reached for.
So, I’ve created my favourite lipstick shades for this winter, around all these evocative memories.
MAC Diva Antics
The amplified finish is absolutely creamy , creating a good moisturizing effect on dry lips . The color is an intense reddish burgundy. Think of an evening indoors with red wine.
Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick
Shade: Insolent Plum
The color is intense and the formula is hydrating. It also contains pigments which give a dimensional effect top lips. A very luxurious lipstick to own, with superb packaging. Rich plum cake anyone.
Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Mattes
Shade: Touch of Spice
Just in case you thought mattes were absolutely passe, come winter time, here is a formula that gives a bold matte look but with a creamy texture. Dress up your hot soups with touch of spice, to drive away the winter chills.
Makeup Forever Rouge Artist Natural
If you are ok with a natural finish but highly moisturizing luxury then this is for you. The color payoff is more than that of a gloss but the formula is perfect for winter. A contemplative evening with a good book to read or a small party with just close friends.
Bobbi Brown Creamy Lip Color
Shade: Raisin Berry
A truly all in one formula: long lasting with intense color payoff and highly creamy. The color is a brown red. Couldn’t ask for more. Think chocolates and celebrations.
