Beauty: Favorite Winter Lip Colors

Today let's talk about something I feel very strongly about (ha! passion!) lip colors.  I am a true lip gloss/stick/color hoarder and have no less than four in my bag at a time.  I mean, a girl has to have options, right?  I definitely have very different color choices for different seasons.  In the Summer I stick to light neutrals so I can show off my tan, and in the Winter I wear a lot more brights to make everything brighter and cheerier.  

Here is what is in my current Winter rotation right now...

left to right:   

Honest Beauty Lip Crayon in Mulberry Kiss - This is an amazing wine colored lip crayon that gives serious color.  It's intense and on the matte side, but goes perfectly with a really subtle eye and face.  The color stays put without being drying at all.

Bobbi Brown Rich Color Gloss in Tutu 1 - (not available, but Pink Buff literally looks exactly the same.) I love Bobbi Brown glosses because they're not super sticky, they give great color, moisture and stay on for a long time.  I have been buying her glosses for over ten years and will always continue to do so because they are AWESOME!

Trish McEvoy Lip Color in Precious Pink - I am a huge Trish McEvoy fan (even if she doesn't rank well on the chemical usage scale, oops!) and her lip colors are definitely one of the reasons why.  They all give a sheer wash of color, while moisturizing and have a delicious minty flavor to them.  This shade gives the most perfect pinky pink color that can be built up.

Trish McEvoy Lip Color in Perfection - Same reasons as above except that this really is perfection, as in the most perfect nude lipstick ever.  I think it's such a perfectly light and flattering shade that will match almost any skin tone.  I wear this almost daily and keep a tube in my bag at all times.

YSL Vernis a Levres Glossy Stain in 203 -  This is a mouthful to say, but it's a great gloss for a reason.  It gives amazingly pigmented color for a gloss, is uber lightweight and stays put.  It almost seems to seal your lips so that the color stays on for hours.  I recommend trying the colors on in store because they can look very different on than what they do in the bottle!

NYX Butter Gloss in Merengue - This is THE best bang for your buck lip color IMHO.  It's a fun, girly pink that is moisturizing (do we see an avoid dry lips theme here?) and just doesn't appear cheap at all.  A lot of budget brand colors can seem funky on, but this looks like a really beautiful shade of pink with purple undertones.  It's my go-to girly color and I love the $5 price point!

Any other lip product hoarders out there?  If so, I could totally do a post just on chapsticks and lip moisturizers.  Not even joking.  #lipproblems

Thank you for reading and have a fabulous day!  -xx

  1. YSL lip color has been on my list forever!!!

  2. Love my NYX butter glosses - you seriously can't beat the price! I've been wanting to try Bobbi Brown's for a while now, this one looks like the perfect pink!

  3. I love all those colors! How do you like that Honest Beauty crayon? I've never used any of their stuff and I didn't even know they had makeup!

  4. Such pretty colors! I want to try Honest makeup, I think I may sign up for a bundle from her site. Do you have any of the makeup? Also dish away on the lip moisturizers - I'm in need of one!

  5. I had SO many in my purse, but I finally purged them since I always wore the same thing over and over again.
