Winter Lipsticks for Pale Skin - Day 6

Sunday, 6 December 2015
It's Winter and we know what that means: berry lipsticks, everywhere. I must admit, I am not one to usually opt for a berry lipstick, I actually don't own many. I find they make me look ghostly so I've chosen three other colours which will be on my lips all the time!

Winter Lipsticks For Pale Skin
First there has to be a neutral, what can I say, it's a force of habit, I always reach for a nude. The obvious choice for a lipstick is Peach Blossom, I won this in a giveaway and it is one of my most used shades. It has the gorgeous MAC consistency and a colour as gorgeous to match.

Next is probably the most berry type shade I own and it is Seduction by Collection. It's not too red which doesn't make it too bright, perfect for Winter when you're trying not to bring attention to your chapped lips. Also the smell of this is sweet and reminds me of Christmas.

Finally is the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Monte Carlo. I really like the lip creams texture and how they apply, perfect for the Winter months. Monte Carlo is the bright red, so it is quite bold but don't fear it, it is really flattering!

What colours do you like for Winter, are you a berry lover? Are there any berry lipsticks that you think flatter the very pale?

  5. I think most dark lipsticks flatter pale ladies & gents. I love them! I almost only wear dark lippies and red lips as well (I don't really consider those "dark" unless they're a dark red). Berry lipsticks and darker brown lipsticks are great, imo!
