My Favorite 5 Dark Lipsticks For Winter

Hi Beauties,

Winter is almost knocking at our doors, and it means lots and lots of Christmas and New -Year parties to attend. According to me, evening invitations mean some dark and bold lips with smokey eyes !! So, what could be a better time to share some of my favorite dark lipstick options ! Here, I am mentioning five of them and these colors can be carried by a variety of different skin-tones, especially, suitable for fair to medium skin beauties. So, let’s get started :


My Favorite 5 Dark Lipsticks For Winter


I. MAC All Fired Up – Starting off, with the boldest and beautiful color in my vanity and MAC it is ! The shade is ‘All Fired Up ‘ and it is from their retro matte range. An elegant red with a hint of pink in it which is perfect for an evening look. It lasts really long , around 5-6 hours, with meals ,for me. You can rock this shade with black gowns or burgundy , teal colored dresses.

II. L’OREAL PARIS Pure Garnet  – This has been my favorite since last year , when I got this lip shade. This was promoted by the beautiful Sonar Kapoor (You can see her, wearing this a lot, actually 😉 ) . It is a deep burgundy shade, with hints of red and magenta in it. This has a very smooth texture to apply on your lips and lasts around 3-4 hours without any touch-ups. This is a very famous shade from the Pure Reds collection and I, absolutely , love it !

III. COLORBAR  Mauve Dusk – Colorbar launched their Kiss Proof Lip Stain collection last year, which was one of very first introduction of liquid lipsticks in India. I grabbed 3 shades from this range, and all of them did fairly well ! Mauve Dusk is a purple-mauve color which looks quite different on every other skin -tones. It is a transfer-proof formula that lasts around 4-5 hours without any greasy food. You can always rock this shade with pinks, yellow,white outfits.

IV. COLOURPOP Tulle – Moving on to another International brand, Colourpop Cosmetics ,who has taken the beauty world on a roll since last year. Every month, they are coming up with something exciting and one just cannot have enough of them ! (And , it’s damn cheap too !!) Colourpop Tulle is an ultra-matte liquid lipstick  and looks like a deep brownish-red on my fair to medium skin tone. A little bit on the drying side, but you can always make it work with proper lip-exfoliation and application of lip-balms underneath your lipstick.
