Winter is the perfect time to bust out a bold lip if you’re not normally accustomed to doing so. The muted tones of winter are the perfect backdrop for the main event: your bold color choice.
As many of you (no doubt) have a plethora of holiday parties and get-togethers to attend, you might be looking for the perfect winter lipstick to add as the finishing touch before you head out the door.
But maybe you’re struggling to find a good choice. Don’t worry, I’ve got your back. Here are my top 5 favorite winter lipsticks for you to peruse.
Maybelline’s Divine Wine (matte)—This is by far my favorite dark lippie for winter. It’s a gorgeous deep berry with excellent staying power that is not too drying. Bust this out when you brave the holiday shopping crowds, and you’ll feel all-powerful, I promise.
Sephora Collection liquid lipstick in Scarlet Luster—On the opposite end of the lipstick spectrum is this vibrant red. It does tend to transfer a lot, but somehow the color manages to stay in-your-face vibrant nearly all day. Wear this one with your ugly sweater!
Revlon’s Wine with Everything—This is more of an everyday red that is especially nice around the holidays. You can wear it to work all month long for a subtle festive touch to business casual look.
Revlon’s Wine Not? (matte)—Are you sensing a theme here? This is a beautiful deep wine red with purply hues that’s perfect for that swanky evening soiree or your work’s holiday party.
Wet ‘N’ Wild’s Sugar Plum Fairy—This is a semi-matte magenta-purple lipstick that’s stunning for an evening out with your gals or your significant other. It looks dark in the tube, but it applies brighter. Wear this when you’re sipping cocktails and watching the snow fall.
