Top 5 Winter Lip Colors

I am so ready for Winter to be over, but I'm not ready to give up these gorgeous lipsticks quite yet. I guess I'll put up with the cold for just a little bit longer. These are the shades I've been wearing the crap out of this season, and lets be honest, I'll probably continue wearing them the rest of the year.

Tip: Before applying lipsticks, especially matte formulas, you need to make sure your lips are free of dead, dry skin. A lip scrub will take care of that for you. Today I used my Perfectly Posh Makout Magic Lip Scrub.

Milani "Pretty Natural" - $6.83

This special little lipstick made the cut because it's nice n' neutral, but still has a little somethin' somethin' that adds some color and depth to your look without being so dark and overwhelming. Aaaand it smells like those giant spiral lollipops you get at Disneyland which is a massive plus.

The finish of this lipstick is part of what makes me love it so much. It's not quite matte, not quite satin, so you get the best of both worlds. It's my most worn red, which is probably why it looks like I accidentally ran it through the washer, and that may actually be the case.

Mac "Rebel" - $17

Say hello to my very first Mac lipstick ever! That means it's been with me for a long time and has been well loved. If you want to dabble into plum lipsticks but don't want to commit to going completely purple, give this one a try. This is a fun one to change up your look to something a little more edgy.

Maybelline Color Blur "Partner in Crimson" - $7.19

This guy is fairly new to my collection, but has quickly moved up in the rankings. Its a stunning matte cool toned deep red. Side note: if you have blue eyes, this looks amazing!

L.A. Girl Matte Flat Finish Pigment Gloss "Secret" - $5

This matte liquid lipstick is no joke, as soon as you put it on and it dries down, it's there for the next 3 weeks. Not really, but you need legit makeup remover to get it off. So if you are not up for the work this one involves, don't bother. But besides that, I am obsessed with this shade and the longevity.

Which shades dig their way out of the depths of your makeup drawer in the Winter?
