WINTER LIP PRODUCTS YOU WILL LOVE
WINTER LIP PRODUCTS YOU WILL LOVE

As much as I love my nude lipsticks, I feel like autumn and winter is the perfect time to wear something bolder. Whether it be bright red or a deep berry, I just think the colder seasons is the perfect time to push the boat out and wear something stronger. I wanted to share a collection of lip products that I think are perfect for the following seasons. With Christmas and New Year slowly creeping on us, I have chosen a few products great for those occasions that are going to last all day and then some other products that I think are just beautiful in colour.

My favourite nude lip product for winter is always the…

TOO FACED MELTED CHOCOLATE LIQUID LIPSTICK in CHOCOLATE MILKSHAKE. Since having it in my collection, it has always been a staple lip product for me in the colder months. It is so easy to apply and reapply throughout the day, and because of the formula, it keeps my lips so hydrated. Since it isn’t a matte liquid lipstick, it doesn’t dry my lips out and because the finish it a little more on the glossy side, it just looks super fresh. I love just wearing this on an everyday basis, just to add a bit of colour and tint to the lips.

Winter is definitely my time to whip out some of the more colourful lip products in my collection…

just because I feel like a bold lip in winter just looks great. I have a range of more colourful lip products in this post because if you’re anything like me, a bright red lip takes a lot of guts to wear sometimes. One of my favourite winter lip shades is the BITE BEAUTY MATTE LIP CRAYON in GLACE. I love this because it is a nude lip, but just a little deeper and therefore a bolder choice. These crayons are so convenient though, they double up as a lipstick and a lipliner making them so easy to apply. This one is also in mini form, so it’s perfect for your handbag. The matte formula of this just suits the shade so well, and it is the sort of product you can wear with any eye look.

Dark lip shades are definitely my way of stepping out of my comfort zone…

and the BITE BEAUTY AMUSE BOUCHE LIPSTICK in CHAI is definitely up there with one of my most favourite shades for winter. It is the perfect combination of a deep red and a dark brown nude, making it such a great lipstick for the colder months. I love this with just minimal makeup, it just makes it pop that bit more. The formula of these lipsticks is so creamy but the pigment is there in one swipe. I will say though, they are not the most long-wearing so it is the sort of product you would reapply throughout the day, but nevertheless it is a beautiful lip product and a perfect shade for winter. 

I would associate lipgloss a lot more with spring and summer, however…

you always need at least one, just in case you ever need that bit of shine to add to a makeup look. The COLLECTION LIQUID LIP COLOUR in IN THE BUFF, it such a great gloss for winter. It is a sheer mauve/ nude shade that just adds that shine to anything underneath, whether it be a lipstick or maybe just a bit of liner. The colour payoff isn’t a lot but it just adds a slight tint to the lips if you were to wear it alone, which is actually my favourite way to wear it. The formula is also really lovely because although it’s a gloss, it isn’t crazy sticky and the shine it gives off isn’t super intense either, it is the sort of product you can build and manipulate to how you’d like which I think is so great from a gloss. 

Onto one of the most precious and special makeup products in my collection…

the CHARLOTTE TILBURY MATTE LIPSTICK in AMAZING GRACE. I first picked this up purely for the name, but the shade is unlike anything else I own. I’d describe it as a medium pink shade, which is so unlike me in colour but in reality, I love the way it looks when I wear it. The Charlotte Tilbury lipstick formula is perhaps my favourite out there just because it is so luxurious, creamy and lasts ages. You also pay for what you get in terms of the quality, but also the packaging, it is just such a special product to own and have in a makeup collection. I love wearing this colour with a gold eye shadow, I just think the two shades look so well together. I’m definitely hoping to get my wear out of this lipstick some more over the next few months as I definitely think it deserves more loving, but I won’t lie when I say I’m scared of ruining how beautiful it is.

I couldn’t do this post without one bold red lip choice…

Although I wear it perhaps one day in the entire year, everyone needs a red lip in their collection and THE BODY SHOP MATTE LIQUID LIP in TAHITI HIBISCUS is mine. When it comes to a bright red lip, I’d go with a matte formula all the way just to help it last as long as possible throughout the day. This red is a very true pillar-box red with a blue undertone, so it’s great for making your teeth look white and also for the festive season. Like I said, I don’t wear this often merely because of the shade, but the formula is beautiful and I’m sure I will whip it out at one point this winter season. 

I’d love to know what your favourite shade is for winter, are you a nude lip lover or do you love something a little bolder?
