My Top 3 Lipsticks for Winter Review

Something that I look forward to throughout the year is winter time, specially Christmas. Don’t you, too? What I love most about this time of the year is spending it with my family and eating all kinds of delicious food. Another of the many reasons why this season is so special to me, makeup-wise, is because I get to wear all my darker color lipsticks. Thus, I decided to share with you my top 3 lipsticks that I’ve been using so far for autumn and winter. 

These past three days I’ve been working on a new video for my channel and, at the same time, on this blogpost. Talk about multitasking and efficiency, right? :P Haha if you’d know me, you would be probably laughing because I can’t multitask. It’s been proven that women have the ability to do so, more than men, but I guess I’m one of the few that can’t. Anyway, for this week’s video, I filmed my first impression of L’Oreal True Match Lumi Highlighter. I tried out three ways you can use the product, according to the instructions on the back part of it’s package, and for each way I did a makeup look. I used the three lipsticks that I’m about to share with you. Therefore, in this post, I included photos of each of the looks that I did for the video, just so you can have a better idea of how they look like.

Makeup Store Matt Lipstick in Vamp:

Walking around the mall the other day, I decided to pop in the Makeup Store, “just to see” what new products they got. I think I was only kidding myself by believing I would just check out the store, because the minute I step in the mall I knew I was going to get myself a new lipstick. This was my second time trying out a lipstick from this brand, and with my previous experience, I was excited to try out another one. I went for Vamp, which I would describe this lipstick’s color as burgundy. I tried it on my arm and the color was just what I wanted, a dark red lipstick. However, once I placed it on my lips, it wasn’t as dark. I guess you can apply more of the product to get more intensity. Nonetheless, I still think it was a great purchase. The lipstick is from their matte range. Although matte lipsticks tend to have a dry finish, this one felt very creamy. The lady that helped me out in the store told me it was made from avocado oil and some other oil that I can’t remember, which helps moisturize your lips. Similar to my other Makeup Store lipsticks, this one is very easy to apply and blend. As for duration, it’s described as long lasting. When I tested it, I spent all afternoon without having to reapply some more. I think that if you are looking for a lipstick from a high end brand, this one is worth the try.

Revlon Colorburst Balm Stain in Adore:

Revlon is one of my favorite drugstore brands. I specially love their lip products because they are affordable and they are of a good quality. For my day to day or for a simple makeup look, I think their Colorburst Balm Stain range come in handy. As it’s name says, these are not lipsticks but lip balms. Thus, their color intensity and finish is not the same as a lipstick’s. These Balm Stains have a slight glossy finish which I think make the lips look really nice. Also, it can provide a pretty tint to your lips. Their intensity may not be as strong as a lipstick’s, but for a lip balm, I think they are quite pigmented. Although their shiny finish may fade out with time, their pigmentation lasts longer. A couple of things that I love about this balm stain is it’s minty scent and fresh sensation when applied. It feels as if my lips were getting moisturized due to it’s soft consistency.

Unknown Brand Rouge Lumiere Lipstick:

To end this blogpost with a touch of suspense and mystery, the last lipstick that I’ve been using for wintertime I don’t know of which brand it’s from. The story goes like this: the other day my mom was organizing her makeup and, as she was looking through her lipsticks, she decided to get rid of the ones that she no longer used. Like an older sibling passing down her toys, she gave them to me. I was quite happy with my new acquisitions and started to try them out right away. I found, among my new lipsticks, this raspberry/dark red, shimmery lipstick that had no box, nor it’s package contain any symbols or name of it’s brand. The only clue that I found was the words “Rouge Lumiere”, which I’m guessing it’s the color of the lipstick or the name of the product’s range. I’ve done some search on the internet but I’can find it’s identity and my mom doesn’t remember either, so if you recognize it, please let me know :) This lipstick is really pigmented and intense when applied. It last’s a long, long time. I used it for Halloween and not only it lasted throughout the whole party, but the next day I woke up with my lips still of a reddish color. Of course it was not as intense as when I had first applied it. Also, it has a nice creamy texture that makes your lips feel hydrated and soft. Would be nice to know it’s brand to test other products as I’ve been happy with this one :P

I hope you enjoy this review! Let me know what you think :) Which are the lipsticks that you’ve been using lately?
