Favourite Winter Lips

I’m not sure why, but i definitely prefer the Autumn/Winter half of the year when it comes to make-up, particularly lips. In the spring/summer i tend to play it quite safe and subtle. The other half of the year, it’s the opposite. I feel, in the winter, there is just so much more opportunity for a great lip.


NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in the colour, London. This is the most wonderful nude colour that is perfect all year round. If i’m not feeling the matte effect, i put some NYX Butter Gloss in the colour, Ginger Snap on top. This gives my lips a really glossy look but the colour of the lip cream still comes through.

My everyday go-to winter lipstick is  the Seventeen Supreme Shine Lipstick in the colour, Bon Bon. It’s a nude-y brown/pink/red that just goes with absolutely everything! I’m always reaching for this colour!

I’m a lover of Soap & Glory cosmetics, their lipsticks being my favourite products. This is the Sexy Mother Pucker in the colour Perfect Day which, again, is a really warm winter everyday colour. It’s warm & rich without being too bold, i love it.


I don’t think berry tones should just be for Autumn, we’re still in the season of all things Burgundy and Bobble Hats so i will keep adoring my berry tones until, probably March.

Starting off with NYX again, i love the Soft Matte Lip Cream in the colour, Budapest. This might be my favourite berry shade ever and i love the matte lip creams from NYX!

I also really love the PS… Velvet Matte Lipstick Crayon in the colour, Wine. This is a really good colour- it does bleed a little bit through so i’d advise pairing this with a lip liner.

With the cold winter days, you need to take a little more care of your lips to a tinted balm is always a good idea. This Sweet Sheen Lip Balm from MUA is really soft & moisturising. I picked up the colour, Cherry Bomb which is a really great *no surprises here* cherry colour (!) and you can build it up to a really strong colour.

Have to save the best for last, which is the Rimmel Kate Moss in the shade, 107. This is a beauty must have, i love this in the winter (although i do wear it all year round). It’s just the cosiest, sophisticated, most wonderful winter shade.


Nothings says festive, like a good red lip. I would always advice a lip liner when you start wearing stronger colours because even the best bleed and it you want to keep it as sharp as possible in order for it to look really great!

I really love the new Tanya Burr Cosmetics lipsticks in the colour, Big Kiss. This is the perfect Christmas red, it’s strong and bold and i just feel FIERCE when i wear it.

My second, and last, favourite is the Stilla Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in the colour, beso. This is a really brilliant red that is perfect for the party season. Liquid lipsticks always look really good on a night out.15137489_10209557096698208_9090330606136020020_o

I wore this to my work Christmas Night out and i absolutely adored it!

So that is my favourite winter lips! Let me know if we share any of the same favourites or if you have any others to recommend!

Also, HAPPY VLOGMAS DAY 1! December on Youtube is just the BEST month! 24 Days of Zoella started yesterday and Vlogmas starts today, i love it so much!
