The leaves are starting to change color and the air is getting a little cooler. With sweater weather just around the corner, we need to remember to keep our lips hydrated. Fall and Winter lipstick shades come in a large variety of types and colors, and today I’ll be sharing my favorites.
Reds are an absolute essential for any season. During the Fall and Winter, darker, more captivating reds come into play.
Autumn Great Wear Lip by Maybelline (Top) This color is smooth to apply and takes a few coats to really bring out the color. The result is a red that is just darker than true red.
Parallel Red All-Day Lipstick from Estee Lauder (Middle) This is a simple bold red, just because you can wear it during any season.
JujuRouge Lippie Stix from Colourpop (Bottom) This color is a fierce mix of pink, red and purple. See my full review of this shade in: Makeup Review: Colurpop’s Lippie Stix + Swatches.
2. Glossy Purples
Sometimes you don’t want the pressure of a full dark lip. On the off days, a darker gloss comes in handy.
Sassy Mauve Outlast Lipstain by CoverGirl (Top) This is a liquid lip stain. When I say liquid, I actually mean that it will feel like you are putting water on your lips. I don’t recommend that you get this particular lip stain because the color comes off easily. I suggest that you buy a good quality lip stain because they come in handy on days when you don’t have time to reapply lipstick.
Berry Allure Super Lustrous Lipgloss by Revlon (Middle) This lovely lipgloss is a light magenta. The color is very sheer and doesn’t feel too sticky.
Voluptuous Violet Chubby Stick by Clinique (Bottom) This lip gloss is soothing to the touch. It is smooth during application. After a few coats, the color will start to appear.
3. Dark Purples
To take anyone’s breath away, pull off a dark purple lip. Most people don’t realize how much power they can gain by simply being confident in this ferocious color.
Grandest Grape Chubby Stick Intense by Clinique (Top) Sad to inform my readers that this bold, bright purple will only look good on specific skin tones. A light coat will go a long way on anyone, but I suggest buying a different shade of this lipstick because it is just as good as the sheer chubby stick and has much better pigment.
Black Cherry Super Lustrous Lipstick by Revlon (Bottom) This lipstick, on the other hand, looks good on anyone willing to try a dark shade. It is a beautiful purple that I recommend to anyone who has never given dark purple its fair chance.
