Happy Friday! Today I’m sharing my favorite lipsticks for this winter season. All of my picks are by MAC Cosmetics and consists of 3 permanent and 2 limited edition shades. Remember, the cold winter weather can cause dry, chapped lips so remember to wear some kind of lip balm under your lipsticks. Lipstick on top of dry or cracked lips is NOT cute.
Velvet Teddy (permanent) has a matte finish . It’s a pinky-nude that is really lovely. In the above pic I’m wearing Velvet Teddy with Cork lip pencil. For me, I absolutely must wear a lip liner with this lippie because it makes my lips look a bit ashy without it.
Just A Bite (limited edition) is a satin finish. It applied smoothly and it feels good on. Im my opinion, it’s the perfect red. I don’t like red lipsticks that look to bright and this is just deep enough. It’s like a blood red color. This color will look fabulous with a black/white ensemble.
Flat Out Fabulous (permanent) is a retro matte finish. It’s a newer shade that was released with the Retro Matte collection. The retro matte is pretty on, but it a bit difficult to apply. I find that it tugs at my lips even when I apply my lip balm first.
Talk That Talk (limited edition) was released during the RiRi Hearts Fall collection. This color was so high in demand. It’s a retro matte finish that is extremely difficult to apply. The way I apply it is I first apply my lip balm, then fill my lips in with NYX Deep Purple lip pencil, then apply Talk that Talk. And even if you follow all these steps, you’re bound to find crack here and there. Exfoliation is the key to making this lippie look perfect.
The infamous Heroine! Heroine (permanent very soon) was re-released during the Fashion Sets collection earlier this year. It has a matte finish and applies nice and smooth.This shade is so popular that MAC is bringing it back permanently. An exact date for the release is still unknown at the moment, but I’m hearing late December or early January. I like to wear this lipstick with either NYX Purple Rain or MAC Magenta lip pencil.
L-R: Velvet Teddy, Just A Bite, Flat Out Fabulous, Talk That Talk, Heroine.
What are the shades you are currently wearing this winter. I’d love to know!
