When fall and winter come around I can’t help but whip out my favorite lipsticks. This fall and winter I’ve added to my must have lip products. Keeping your lips moisturized and chap free is the main goal we all try to achieve this time of the year. I hope the products that are my favorites can help you keep your lips looking great this season. Make sure to try vampy colors this time of the year as they look great on everyone!What are some of your lip favorites this season?
The first step to my fall and winter lip routine has to be exfoliating. With the colder weather, chapped lips are always around. I love to use my DIY Brown Sugar Scrub to exfoliate and had moisture back to my lips. When not using my scrub I opt for a tooth brush and a little bit of water.
Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. I can’t say it anymore then I have already said it. This is so key in keeping fine lines and dead skin from making your favorite lipsticks look smooth and flawless. I’m big on the classic Chapstick. My current favorite is the vanilla flavor. You can never go wrong with Chapstick.
The NARS Audacious Lipstick in Charlotte is one of my new favorites for sure. This ultra pigmented and smooth lipstick is to die for. NARS has really stepped their game up in the lipstick department and I cannot complain one bit about the Audacious lipstick formula.
Mac has always been one of my favorite cosmetic companies. When it comes to lipsticks I have plenty of favorites, but for the fall and winter I wear the heck out of Ruby Woo and Rebel. Rebel is a great in between color if your not ready for the full on vampy dark lip, where as Ruby Woo is the perfect holiday matte red.
Sometimes you don’t want to wear dark vampy lips all the time, and sometimes they are just not appropriate for certain occasions. My go to fall and winter ‘nude’ has to be hands down the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in 130 Rose Velvet. It’s a nice pinky dark nude that compliments a lot of skin tones.
Let’s talk dark, vampy, and matte. I am dying over the Kat Von D Studded Kiss lipstick in Homegirl. I never thought I would like such a dark and vampy lip but when I swatched this color in Sephora I fell in love instantly. It claims to be a 10 hour wear lipstick, but I cannot attest to that claim, but I can say it stays put pretty well through eating and drinking. Defiantly give these lipsticks a try, but be aware they are a little drying to MOISTURIZE before hand.
