Favourite Winter Lipsticks

Favourite Winter Lipsticks

Lipstick is my favourite part of doing makeup. It just pulls the look together and can completely transform the feel of it. Going into autumn and winter this year I have got really into the dark lip and have gone a little bit mad with buying new lipsticks so I thought I’d share my favourites with you. There are 7 which I know is a random number but that was just what I could get it down to.



  1. Gosh Cranberry  this is a gorgeous very deep red with slightly brown undertones and a matte finish. It is a recent purchase but I already love it!
  2. Barry M 162  this is another deep red but less brown making it slightly lighter and almost pinky. I prefer the colour of the Gosh one but find myself reaching for this as it applies a lot better over lip balm which I find so important in cold weather.
  3. Rimmel London Kate 30  this is a much more purple shade but still very dark. This was my favourite lip colour last autumn/winter but this year I find myself reaching a lot more for the red shades for day to day but I still love this colour for parties and evenings out.
  4. MAC Retro (satin finish)  This is definitely my favourite lip colour this year! It is a dark red, almost burnt orange colour. It applied really well and lasts all day.
  5. Rimmel London Amethyst Shimmer  This is a dark pinky purple colour with a gorgeous, subtle shimmer. Another great colour for parties and definitely one I’ll be reaching for in the christmas season.
  6. Urban Decay F-Bomb  this is my go to ‘true red’. It is such a perfect red colour and lasts really well even through a night out.
  7. MAC Mehr  No surprises here! This is one of my favourites through out the year but I just find it the perfect nude for autumn where it is slightly darker. It goes so well in the day to dress down a more dramatic eye.
