As the seasons change and the weather becomes a bit colder and the days shorter, I feel I need to switch up my makeup routine. This also includes picking out the best products for my lips, not only to keep them looking and feeling their best despite the baltic weather making them chapped, but also to keep in with a theme of darker, wintry colours.
My go to lip care product is anything Carmex. I always have a pot or tube of their original formula handy to keep topping up throughout the day. I have been using this beauty for years and it keeps my lips super hydrated. You can feel the product working as it tingles away at your lips. I recommend always using a lip balm and allowing it some time to sink in before applying any other lip product, as well as popping some on morning and night to keep your lips in good condition.
Another lip life saver I love is the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant. You can use this anywhere, but I love using in on my lips to give them a little extra TLC during the Winter months.
Here is a swatch of the lips colours I love using during the colder months:
First up we have three gorgeous shades from NYX:
Soft Matte Lip Cream in ‘Cannes’
Lip Lingerie in ‘Satin Ribbon’
Full Throttle Lipstick in ‘Locked’
I love NYX, not only for how affordable it is, but for the huge selection of shades and the amazing quality of the products.
The next shade is from Benefits new product, ‘They’re Real! Big Sexy Lip Kit’ I was thoughtfully gifted this for Christmas and couldn’t wait to try it. It is basically a lip liner and lipstick all in one. I plan to do a full review on the kit soon, so stay tuned! My favourite colour from the kit is ‘Lusty Rose’, it is a nude colour but I find these types of shades very easy to wear, especially when my complexion is a little paler.
Last, but definitely not least, I’ve picked out three products from MAC:
Viva Glam 1 A25 Matte
I always like to pair Viva Glam 1 with:
‘He Said, She Said’ Pro Longwear Lip Pencil.
Velvet Teddy A16 Matte
What are your favourite lip colours for Winter? I would love any suggestions!
