Favourite Seasonal Lipsticks

With the festive season in full swing and bloggers and vloggers talking about festive makeup and outfits I thought it was time to share one of my makeup loves. Lipstick. If you’ve read my ‘Confessions of a Lipstick Hoarder’ posts then you’ll know I have a slight lipstick addiction. I especially love the festive season where I can lock away all those nudes and pinks and bring out shades of deep wine and purple. Today, I thought I’d share a few of my seasonal favourites.
First up is New York Apple by Mac. This is one I got while in NY last year and is a party favourite, it is a pinkish red with a silver glitter and is part of MAC’s frost range. When the light hits off of this lipstick the colour looks almost rose gold which is a definite win. I like to pair this with a slightly more cooler toned red lip liner which I use to fill in my lips as I find this makes the lipstick pop. While I say it is a part favourite, it can also be worn as an everyday lipstick.

Another festive favourite is Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid lipstick in the shade Damned. This is a beautiful black cherry shade that is sure to provide a statement lip for any fall/winter look. This is a matte shade and boy is it everlasting. This lipstick definitely does not need a lip liner to keep it from budging. In fact, it barely budges at all even when trying to take it off. I have found that the only thing that really removes it is oil. So avoid oily things and you’re good to go.  

A lipstick I find myself reaching for every winter is one I got several years ago as part of a gift set. It’s a lovely true red shade by Ted Baker, sadly it doesn’t have a name, well not that I can find anyway. It’s packaged in a beautiful pale pink and rose gold bullet making it a lovely lipstick to keep in your makeup bag. I’m not a fan of wearing a red lipstick for an everyday look but this is certainly one that could be worn.

A fairly new find that will be about a lot this season is Gemma, from the Perlees range by Lime Crime. It’s not exactly a winter shade, intact it could be worn all year round but it is shimmery and beautiful. It is a slightly brownish rose gold colour that reminds me of autumn leaves. When the light catches it, it glimmers and shines making any look amazing.

While watching lipsticks for this post I realised I had far too many winter favourites so I’ll be writing another post featuring another few so make sure to look out for it.
