Top 5 Winter Lipsticks

Hey Beauties,

So today will be all about my Top 5 lipsticks that I'm wearing this winter. Winter is usually seen to be dark and dreary which don't get me a wrong it is, but people often wear more darker colours as well, unless you're like me who wears black all year around. Anyway I've actually found myself reaching for darker colours this winter but also bright pops of pink and orange because i am a woman who likes to change it up. Read on to find out my favourite winter lipsticks. 

L-R: Maybelline 'Plum Proper', Sportsgirl Pout about it 'Love Bite', Sportsgirl Pout about it 'Violet Crumble',
MAC Amplified lipstick 'Saint Germain', Maybelline Color Whisper 'Petal Rebal'
Maybelline Lipstick in '942 Plum Proper': Okay so i don't actually know what type of Maybelline lipstick this is because I've had it for that long the writing has rubbed off. Anyway this is the perfect plum for people who don't wanna go too dark that it looks gothic. I actually brought this years ago in Melbourne when i wanted a plum lipstick and I've only just rediscovered it. Its such a beautiful colour and I'm going to search and see if its actually still available.

Sportsgirl Pout About it in 'Love Bite': This is the perfect dark red for winter and any time of the year in fact. I kind of strayed away from this colour because i didn't think it suited me but i wore it once whilst working and the rest is history. This is my go to lip colour when I'm unsure what lipstick i want to wear. Plus its only 9.95AUD from Sportsgirl so you literally cannot go wrong.

Sportsgirl Pout About It in 'Violet Crumble': I finally have this baby in my hands and I'm so happy. This colour literally sells out every time we have it in store so when it was restocked i jumped on it. Its such a beautiful purpley/pinky colour and i think it is a warm toned lipstick in a way. Plus the name is violet crumble which reminds me of chocolate mmm.

MAC Amplified Lipstick in 'Saint Germain': When i walked into MAC i didn't intend on walking out with this baby but I'm honestly so glad i did. Its such a beautiful pink and perfect for a pop of colour. Pink is without doubt my favourite colour, i actually plan to have most things in my lifestyle pink haha so this is a perfect addition. It goes beautifully with almost any outfit and because its not matte it doesn't dry out my lips during the day.

Maybelline Color Whisper in 'Petal Rebal': This soft pink lipstick is super perfect for those days when you're unsure about what lipstick you want to wear. The name Color Whisper means that its not supposed to be as full on as a normal lipstick but instead a hint of colour. When i first got it the colour was kind of funny and i found i had to keep swatching it until the colour appeared properly, but as i have used it the colour gets more beautiful. Definitley a perfect addition to the lipstick collection.

Those are my top 5 winter lipsticks and as you can see they vary in colour quite a lot. I hope this post has helped you find the perfect winter lipstick shade.
Until next time..

Love always,
