Firstly, I’d like to apologize for the lack of posts last week and these past few days. I just renewed my blog and all is up and running again. Secondly, it’s almost Christmas and I’m really excited! Are you? This time of year is my absolute favorite season. In other countries, it would be fall already but I live in a tropical country so the temperature is pretty much the same all year round. It gets a tad bit cooler here in my side of the globe around this time of year though.
This time of year is also my favorite because I get to bust out my darker lip colors and wear them on a daily basis! I know I can basically wear them anytime of the year but it feels even more special wearing bolder colors during the holiday season. In this blog post, I’ll be breaking down my top 5 lipstick picks for this season.
The Too Faced Melted Liquified Long Wearing Lipstick in Melted Velvet is a deep red which in my opinion would look great on darker skin tones. This has quite a shiny finish but it feels really comfortable on the lips. This color is perfect for those who are intimidated by a bright red color as it is very wearable.
Wet N Wild Mocha-licious is a drugstore favorite of mine as it is really affordable and the quality is just on point. Mocha-licious is a warm brown shade with a satin finish.
The Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Damned is a classic wine color that would suit all skin tones. It feels really smooth and this does not dry out my lips despite the matte finish.
Sleek Matte Me Ultra Smooth Matte Lip Cream in Velvet Slipper is a vampy plum shade. This liquid lipstick is really pigmented and long-lasting. It tends to feel dry on the lips so I recommend applying a lip balm first. This not my favorite liquid lipstick formula but the color is just too hard to resist!
MAC Whirl is one of my favorite shades from MAC. It can actually be a dupe for Wet N Wild Mocha-licious although Whirl is a bit darker and has a matte finish.
