Top 5 Fall/Winter Lipsticks


I love being able to wear deeper, richer shades of lipstick in the winter and here are a few of my favourite ones from my collection.

Left-Right: Illamasqua Magnetism, MAC Rebel, NARS Gypsy, Tom Ford Violet Fatale, Bobbi Brown Crimson

1. Illamasqua Magnetism - This is a new lipstick from their Generation Q range. It is a deep, raspberry pink shade with a glossy sheen which is quite unusual for Illamasqua.

2. MAC Rebel -  A deep, wine color that is very opaque with a glossy finish. This shade will brighten up your face and there is no need for any other makeup.

3. NARS Gypsy - A muted, red which can be worn with almost everything. I find it very flattering on my skin tone and it feels hydrating on the lips too.

4. Tom Ford Violet Fatale - A fuchsia, raspberry shade with a glossy shine. It is much more more pinkier on my skin. Click HERE for my blog post.

5. Bobbi Brown Crimson - This is probably my favourite of the bunch. It is a rich, deep berry colour and it's a lipstick i have been reaching for it a lot recently.

Below are some swatches and i also took a picture after i had removed the lipsticks. You can see that they have stained my skin, so when they fade and wear off, it leaves a beautiful bitten stain to the lips.
