Lipsticks for Winter

24 Nov

I am a lipstick addict. There I said it. My name is Sweet Child in the City and I am addicted to buying lipsticks. Help me, I’m poor.

I don’t leave the house without something on my lips. Like ever. (OK, maybe on a Sunday morning when I go to get an XL coffee and I had one too many glasses of wine the night before…maybe only then).

I thought I’d round up my faves so that YOU don’t have to go and buy the whole MAC store to find out the best ones. So kind of me ūüôā

Here you go:

MAC Rebel

This is a new favourite of mine. It’s a plum based matte lipstick that pretty much goes with anything in the winter. Don’t be afraid of the purple tint – it’s really quite pretty and not as dark as it looks. I use a liner called Boiseberry from Annabelle to make the look a little lighter, but you can also use MAC’s liner in Currant to get a stronger look.

MAC Speed Dial

This is my go-to everyday lipstick for work. It’s the perfect pink for your pout¬†in the winter season. It works especially well on blondes, and brings out green or blue eyes (if I do say so myself). I typically use a sheer gloss overtop, or layer with MAC’s Pure Silliness gloss for an added shot of pink.

YSL Volupte Sheer Candy in #3 Pomegranate

This is my trusty old favourite. I wish it wasn’t quite so sheer, but the colour is so beautiful that I just know I have to reapply more often. If you don’t love bold matte looks, this is the lipstick for you. It looks quite bright in the tube, but it goes on very sheer.¬†I bought this for my Mom last Christmas and she loves it. It’s great for any occasion – work, holiday party, girls night out, and could¬†really work¬†with absolutely everything. It’s a bit of a higher price point, but seriously worth it in my opinion.

MAC Red (or Maybelline Red Revolution)

I only wear red lipstick in the winter. And if I’m going to wear red, I go big or go home with MAC’s classic Red. It’s not too deep or too orange, and has a hint of a pink undertone which personally works well with my skin tone. I always wear a liner with red lipstick, and for this one recommend MAC’s liner in Cherry. If you want an identical lipstick from the drugstore, try Maybelline’s Red Revolution.

And there you have it…your lips are ready for winter!
