Winter Edit: Lipsticks

One of my most favourite things to stock up on is lipsticks, in any form or colour, I'm just obsessed. And while I've been trying to cut back on spending so much (you can buy so many red lipsticks), I wanted to show you guys some gems I've discovered these past months (and one that I've been loving for a while!)

KIKO Lips & Cheeks in 105 (LE): This crayon lipstick thing has been with me for a while now and it's one of my most loved colours. I use it year round and it's this medium dusty rose that looks amazing on everyone and compliments fair skin really well in the winter! Sadly, it's a Limited Edition but by mentioning it here I'm hoping KIKO gets the memo and brings it back! <3

Sephora Long Lasting Lipstick in 23: Dark (darrrk) lipsticks have been my thing these past months and this Sephora one has been my best discovery. Honestly, I own like 7 different shades of this lipstick and it's a weird but amazing lipstick: very creamy and easy to put on, but dries down to a super comfortable matte (and it's definitely long lasting!) Also, I have another extra lipstick in 23 just in case I lose it, that's how much I love it!

Rimmel London The Only One Lipstick in 510 "Best of the best": Another great discovery is this cherry red. I usually never wear bright reds if they're not matte, but surprisingly this has a glossy finish but is not slippery, and fares extremely well with food and drinks. Best of the Best is such a beautiful colour (cool reds are my thing in the winter) and the texture is otherworldly (is that even a word...) Just check them out, they also have some mattes but this glossy non-sticky and extremely light texture is rocking my world!

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in "Cannes": I have owned NYX SMLC for a while now, but I just started appreciating them some months ago when I acquired this colour. Usually liquid lipsticks are way too drying or too opaque which makes a mess usually, but these NYX ones are creamy and non-drying (=comfortable) and while it takes a minute or so to dry down, they never let me down. Cannes is the colour I wish my lips were, and while the tube is brownish the actual colour is pinky brown (my nude fave hands down).

What lipsticks are you wearing this winter?
