Runway bold lips this Winter

Want to achieve those in minutes? 

Well all you need is a bright red lip colour or a blackish-purple lip colour and you are all set to be in trend for the coming season. 

There are quite a few drug store brands that do affordable versions of reds and purples, so don't forget to check them out. 

I like to use my Le Metier De Beaute Sheer Brilliance Lip Gloss in Turkish Smoke and Rose lip pencil by the same brand. I don't own such colours yet and I have to admit these are so luxurious to use. 

The Lip Gloss is seriously stunning. I would not have thought I would be able to pull it off. But it is quite flattering even after I apply it full coverage. I can see this looking amazing on medium to dark skin tones. It is a blackish-purple colour with tiny specks of gold sparkle which are hardly visible once applied.

It is quite pigmented and has a shimmery finish to it. Smells quite high-end. You know what I mean by that? Fragranced and all I guess. Goes on very smoothly and is very opaque on application. I would love to get my hands on other colours from this range. Christmas wish-list sounds like a nice idea :)

Red is a classic lip colour and will always be, so it isn't surprising that it's back for the coming season. You can't simply go wrong with a red lip, neutral earthy eyes and some light pink flush on the cheeks. Dainty!

I love my red lipsticks but this Rose lip pencil is what I am recently using. Lip pencils provide more staying power if you use them as a base. But I wanted a different shade of red to sport today so I choose Le Metier De Beaute's Rose Lip Pencil as it is a coral-red. It gives me a hint of orange on the lips, which I feel brightens the look. Plus this pencil is so moisturising, it wont dry out your lips.

And we have an FOTD below using Turkish Smoke and Rose respectively. 

Will you be sporting such colours this winter?

These are available at Selfridges.

I also like the Turkish Rose best, it looks more grown up if that makes sense? x

Wow, both these colours look amazing on you, I must say I do like the Turkish Smoke, like a ramped up MAC Naked Paris - very nice, super finished look. Thanks for this. Jan x

Red lips looks perfectly:)

White Bazaar said...

Love the red lipstick! I'm more of a neutral lips person but I think I might have a go with red!

Toni Tralala said...

The rose color looks beautiful on you!

Shivani said...

These look so amazing on you. I totally want to check out Le Metier Beauty! So expensive, but I bet its worth it. I love both the colors on you equally. Turkish Smoke is probably more unique than rose, though.

These shades look stunning on you and i wish i could pull them off but i have really small thin lips so dark shades like these make me look kinda mean and angry - i'm really not though, it's the lip sticks fault!

Love the purply shade so i might go for a nail polish in this kinda colour :)
