When the cold weather hits I swap out creamy lipsticks for matte ones. I don’t know why but I just find matte lips very chic and winter appropriate. I first bought the Australis Velourlips Matte Lip Creams about a year ago but didn’t wear them for a while – when I finally did I was smitten with them. I sometimes struggle with applying matte lipsticks as the dry formula can drag along my lips but with these being a cream formula, that doesn’t happen. They go on really smoothly and then dry matte around five minutes later.
The red I’ve got (NY-CEE) has become my go-to red lipstick – I love that it’s blue-based so makes my teeth look whiter. That’s me wearing it in the photos I took for my about page (although it looks a more little orange there).
I also love this nude (HON-O-LOO-LOO) – I often don’t suit true nudes as they just blend into my skin but this one has got a little bit of pink in it which makes it much more wearable. You can see me wearing it here in my Rose ‘My Lips but Better’ Lip Colours post.
I find the two bright colours – TOK-I-O and RIO-D – a little harder to wear. I just tend to gravitate towards reds firsts, then ‘my lips but better colours’, followed by bright pinks. In saying that though I do love rocking a bright and funky lip colour when the occasion calls for it. What I like about these two is although they’d usually be considered summer colours, I do find they work well in winter because they’re a matte formula.
What’s your favourite lip product formula? Do you change it up depending on the season?
