Winter lips | My favourite winter lip combo


The winter colour palette is by far my favourite, something which gives reason to winter being my favourite season despite the freezing temperatures. There’s something about a bold dark lip that is so glamorous and I never miss the opportunity to swipe on my favourite oxblood or red wine lipstick before heading out for the day or night. 

My favourite lipstick for winter is in the shade Media by Mac which I recently mentioned in my Mac lipsticks collection blog post.  This is a very buildable and opaque lipstick in the most gorgeous red wine to oxblood shade. What I love most about this lipstick is it doesn’t look overly vampy particularly on my pale skin tone. It has a satin finish but it surprisingly creamy and moisturising and could almost pass for a creme sheen despite it’s thinner consistency. It also doubles as a lip stain when dabbed on with a finger or lip brush. 

To keep this intense colour looking clean I pair it with my lipliner also by Mac from the RiRi Hearts Mac collection in the colour Talk that Talk. The colour of this lipliner is almost identical to Media which makes it much easier to blend the two shades together seamlessly. I love using a lipliner to create great definition to my lips particularly with a darker shade as they can tend to get a little messy or bleed which isn't a great look. The only thing I dislike about this product is that it’s a little dry making it hard to outline the lips easily but with some time and a good lip balm it works a dream.
