It shouldn’t come as a huge shock to anyone that I love my fair share of lipsticks and lip products!! (but what girl doesn’t!!!)
At any given time I may be carrying 5, 10, 20? options in my purse ( excessive I know, but one never knows when you may need a color!)
Darks, Lights, Brights, Glosses, Mattes, Balms, Scrubs! Anything goes!!… I Love em all equally!
For this post, I am going to name off some of my top picks for this Fall/Winter season! Which are typically more on the dark side, but I threw in a few nudes and light mauves as well.
Hope this helps anyone that is looking for some new products to try out. I have some drugstore and a little higher end lippies on my list!

Mac “Ruby Woo” (Matte) , Mac “Cyber” (Satin) , Mac “Viva Glam IV” (Frost)…All can be purchased either in store or maccosmetics.com

Lush Mint Julips Lip Scrub ( Lushcosmetics.com )… If you are going to be trying out a lot of the dark lip colours for Fall, you need to keep you lips well hydrated and flake free…this stuff is great for that! Also, its edible and who doesn’t like that!!!!!??
and there you have it! some of my Favorite Lip Products for Fall/Winter 2014!
-When wearing a darker lip colour, go for a more neutral coloured eye. This will have you avoid looking gothish! (unless you are going for that look of course!!) Halloween is around the corner after all 🙂 🙂
-Apply a lip treatment or balm when you first begin your makeup….after it is done and you are ready to apply your lipstick, wipe the balm off. This way the treatment has time to sink in and preps your lips for a longer lasting application.
-The key to wearing a different coloured lipstick such as black…is not giving a crap what other people think! If you have the confidence, you can wear whatever you want!!
-Make sure your skin is well covered and your complexion is even. Dark colours and reds tend to emphasize any imperfections if you have any. So, foundation and powders are a must!
-Blot lipstick with tissue after you apply it, to avoid any excess from smearing on your face or teeth ( THE WORST!!!)….also if you are the friend of said person wearing lipstick, please tell them they have something on their teeth…there is nothing worse then looking in the mirror and realizing you have been talking to everyone with a big gob of lipstick on your pearly whites….or in my case, all over my chin after I eat! 😦
