Winter is coming! (it really is, although it’ll be summer in the southern hemisphere woop woop). As we are fast approaching the final season of the year , where the days are short and the nights long, and like with our wardrobe, many of us will change up our lip colour to reflect the long, dark, gloomy days. For some unspoken reason, we tend to go from light and brighter colours in sheer or glossy textures to more bold, full-bodied, vampy hues. With that in mind, I thought I’d share with you my top lipstick picks for fall/autumn and winter. Some are old favourites and some are new to my lipstick wardrobe. All are fab shades though (and great for skin tones similar to mine, south east asian/ light to medium, warm with yellow undertones/equivalent to MAC NC25-NC40) and will see you right the way through the colder months.
Here goes. In no particular order:
Maybelline Colour Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Colour in the shade Touch of Spice is an easy to wear, everyday shade for this time of year. It’s that mauvey pink tone that’s not too dark but deeper than a your lips but better shade and a shade that I like to call a ‘transition’ shade, bridging the gap between the brighter shades and lighter formulas of the summer, and the deeper shades and bolder formulas of the fall and winter. The texture of the Colour Sensational Creamy Mattes are also worth noting because this is where the drugstore/high-street have stepped up their game, providing great colour payoff in a creamy, comfortable matte finish. Unfortunately this shade is not available in all territories (why Maybelline?). The US and OZ, yes, but not currently in the UK.
