The 5 Best Lipsticks for Winter

A nicely colored lip has the power to be your facial statement piece, and you can match it with your outfit or contrast it for a more effective eye-popping look. So whether you wear it on the daily, or save it for special occasions, check out the 5 best lipsticks for winter to add to your collection!

Finding the right lipstick for winter isn’t always a piece of cake. You might find the right shade, but it may not be moisturizing enough for your dry lips. Or you might find an extra-moisturizing lippy that ends up smearing and doesn’t have enough stay power. The beauty is in the balance. I’ve been lucky enough to find a few key beauty brands that I always count on for lip colour, stay power and nourishment. And once you’ve found your go-tos, the rest is fun and games.

Winter lipstick colours are my favourite because they can be rich and dark, bright, or pretty and subtle. And since there are so many holidays and get-togethers of all sorts around this time of year, you can try unique shades such as gold or even a deep black. A nicely coloured lip has the power to be your facial statement piece, and you can match it with your outfit or contrast it for a more effective eye-popping look.

Lipstick is a makeup bag staple, so whether you wear it on the daily or save it for special occasions, make sure to have a tube handy in your purse! Below are some of the best lipsticks for winter.

MAC Lipstick in Rebel

MAC is a lipstick god. Every time I walk into one of their stores I’m mesmerized by all the beautiful shades, and they have such great stay power. I fell in love with ‘Rebel’ a few years back when I saw it on a co-worker and have been hooked ever since. It’s a rich fuchsia-pink shade that gives you almost a vampy look- but not in a scary way.

Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Color

A classic red lip can update your look instantly, whether you’re wearing a big, cozy knit with jeans, or a blazer and pencil skirt. This satin red lipstick by Chanel holds all day long and goes on smoothly. It’s bright, sleek and ultra-feminine for any of your winter looks.

Lips By Danilea Lipstick in Black Crush

If you haven’t heard of this lipstick line yet, you need to get on it! Cruelty-free and locally manufactured in Toronto, all of the lippys are created to empower you in your everyday life. ‘Black Crush’ is a deep black shade for those who want to go bold this season. It’s totally in right now, so I say go for it! The lipsticks are also long-lasting and super hydrating since they’re infused with vitamin E.

Tom Ford Lip Color in Spanish Pink

Your lipstick shade doesn’t always have to be dark in the winter; a pink blush colour like this one by Tom Ford is pretty and subtle. It’s perfect for a romantic outdoor date somewhere like a skating rink, or a classy cocktail party with the office posse.

NYX Wicked Lippy in Mischievous

Gold lipstick is definitely a little bit out there (in a good way!) and if you’re up for a beauty challenge, this has to be it. I’d suggest wearing it out for a big event, rather than a chill night at the bar, but the ball is totally in your court. NYX lipsticks are richly pigmented and go on smoothly for powerful stay.
