My Favorite Fall & Winter Lipsticks | 2018

No comments
Once the weather dips in temperature and the calendar strikes October, I am fully in Fall lip mode! It continues until about March when I have to put away all my dark colors but I savor every last bit of it.

Dark lipstick wasn't something I always loved but over the past few years, I've realized how cozy and chic they make me feel and look.  I fully blame Kylie Jenner for this as well because her liquid lipsticks are the reason I got hooked on this trend. Now, I wait all year to be able to rock a dark berry or brown lipstick.

I figured what better time to share my favorite cold weather lipsticks than right before Thanksgiving and of course, the biggest shopping day of the year!

From top to bottom: Twenty, French Press, Yum Yum, Latte, Velvet Teddy
and Sex on the Peach

Too Faced Sex on the Peach

This is the ideal 'your lips but better' shade. It's a gorgeous mix of mauve, nude, and brown tones. The matte finish of this lipstick does provide moisture hence the name 'Moisture Matte' but still gives a really nice matte effect. It's new to my collection this year but I've really grown to love it.

MAC Velvet Teddy in Matte

I just swatched this next to the Too Faced shade and they are very similar but Velvet Teddy has more pink and nude than brown. It's a little less matte than Too Faced but still gives a similar look. 

Anastasia Beverly Hills in Latte

I was so excited last year when ABH released regular matte lipsticks. After looking through all the shades I knew I needed Latte because I'm a sucker for that name but also I really wanted a brown lipstick. This is super matte, more matte the others and it can be a little uncomfortable but if you take the time to apply you'll be fine. This isn't an extremely dark brown but it's deep enough to give you the look you want to achieve. I recommend swatching this lipstick formula before buying if you're a little sensitive to matte lipsticks. 

Sephora Collection #Lipstories in Yum Yum

The Sephora Collection #LipStories lipsticks are only $8, come in an insane amount of colors and finishes and have the cutest cardboard packaging. I'm a sucker for them and I love the shade 'Yum Yum'. It's a cream finish and is very creamy so I would use a lip liner with this one. It is a true brown but warmer than the ABH one which is really pretty. If you want a comfortable, creamy brown lipstick to wear throughout the season, I definitely recommend picking this one up. For $8 you cannot go wrong.

Bite Beauty French Press Lipgloss in French Press

I am a huge fan of the Bite Beauty French Press lipglosses and I have to stop myself from wearing them. The shade French Press is the latest one I picked up and is the darkest. Dark lipgloss is hard to wear and I do have a difficult time doing so but it's so fun! It gives such a different effect to a regular matte or cream lipstick and I think if you want to experiment, a dark lipgloss might be good for you because it's never going to be as opaque as a regular lipstick. The formula is truly my all time favorite lipgloss formula because it's not sticky! They apply really nice and even, add a good amount of gloss and shine but aren't so opaque that you feel like you should just wear lipstick. Even if French Press isn't your thing, try a more neutral shade like Salted Caramel.

Kylie Cosmetics Twenty Lip Kit

I cannot do a dark lip color post without mentioning what my all time favorite lipstick is. Kylie Cosmetics 'Twenty' is a dream come true. It is everything I could ever want in a lipstick and I'm thrilled that she made it permanent. Twenty is a dark, very matte, rosy mauve with some brown and plum tones throughout it. 

What are your favorite lip colors to wear during the cold weather?
