From a classic nude to a striking red, popping on some lippy can enhance every look, be it night or day. And as we enter the heart of winter, a season for expressing one’s inner fashionista, what better way to compliment an outfit than to invest in one of these five lipsticks.
Karen Murrell Moisture Stick Balm
In the frosty months of June it is common to develop chapped lips, which is why the Karen Murrell moisture stick balm reigns top on our list of lippys. Providing an instant hit of hydration, the transparent balm acts as the perfect protection to weather, while making the lips extra plump.
Living Nature – Glamorous 16 Lipstick
Now it wouldn’t be a lipstick list without featuring a bold red. The universally flattering shade works wonders both day and night and is a must-have in your makeup bag. For winter, we highly recommend Living Nature’s Glamorous 16, a rich rogue colour with cooling blue undertones and a silky satin finish.
Bare Minerals – Gen Nude Radiant Lipstick
Every handbag needs a nude lipstick and Bare Minerals have the perfect contender. With seven everyday shades to choose from, you’re bound to find a match that will compliment your daily look. The face-flattering collection comes in medium coverage and promises to leave a natural dewy finish.
Fenty Beauty – Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick
Rihanna’s renowned makeup brand Fenty Beauty is loved by many due to its high quality and variety, which is why we had to give a shout out to her plush matte lipstick range. With 24 weightless, colour intense shades, the long-wearing lipstick is the perfect matte to combat the harsh winter weather. From a daring orange to a diva purple, these lipsticks work for every pair of smackers.
NYX Professional Makeup – Soft Matte Lip Cream
Another matte to swear by is the NYX soft matte lip cream. There is nothing better than applying lipstick in the morning and returning home with it still intact, which NYX always pulls through on. Again, offering multiple shades, this lippy should be everyone’s handbag staple.
