So I thought I would share with you my top wintery lipsticks that are perfect for the festive season. These ones are separate from the ones I have used in my recent tutorials as I thought you may like to see some different ones I like. The ones on my tutorials are also my winter favourites as well - these are MAC's 'Rebel' in my 'How To Look Gorgeous For A Night Out' tutorial which you can see here, and Maybelline's 'Pleasure Me Red' lipstick which I put in my recent 'How To Look Glamourous For A Christmas Party' video which you can see here.
First up is this fun and festive red colour from Collection 2000 in the colour 'Cherry Pop' and as the title suggests, it's a really cherry red. I like it because it is fun and bright and a great one to liven up any make-up and give it a Christmassy and wintery warmth. Plus, I couldn't really have a festive post without a staple red could I!?
This is the first of two everyday type colours. Although it looks dark, this colour 'I Tink I Love You' from Benefit has a really sheer finish. The colour is pigmented but not at all matte and it glides on with a glossy consistency which I love. It has a plum tint to it which makes it warming whilst the shimmer to it gives it a unique colour and doesn't make the colour so intense.
The other 'everyday' colour is MAC's 'Cosmo'. This is such a sophisticated and rich nude with a really warm tone. This is great for both pale and darker skin tones, if you have pale skin then it will come out much stronger but I love the way it looks. This is a great all rounder for colour, sophistication, everyday wear and texture.
This is a lipstick I have loved for such a long time - Estee Lauder's 'Bitten Fig', this is the most colourful berry deep pink colour that just instantly makes you look glamourous. I would pair it with lots of sparkly gold eyeshadow for an amazing party look. I just absolutely love the colour and the gold packaging it comes in. The consistency is absolutely gorgeous - really pigmented in colour but with a beautiful silky finish that stays put on the lips and has lasting shimmer. I love it!
Last up is Chanel's 'L'Impatiente' from this years Christmas collection. This is a really strong aubergine colour that is so beautiful on the lip. I think this one looks great with minimal eye make-up and really fresh faced skin as it definitely stands as the feature of a make-up look. The packaging is so effortlessly chic as well - the perfect festive treat!
Here are the swatches as the appear in the order of the blog...
Love this! Maybe a post on your favorite nude lipsticks. I have been trying to find a nice one for a while and can't seem to find one :(

Mac's Cosmo looks stunning. I am actually loving the Revlon lip butters for winter.

I love that Benefit shade, I haven't tried their lipsticks before but you may have convinced me! It's Summer where I live at the moment and I've been loving my Berry Smoothie lip butter, but last Winter I really enjoyed my Urban Decay lip junkie lipgloss in Naked, I know dark lips are in for Winter, but I kept finding that I wanted to play up my eyes and it is a great nude lipgloss that's not too nude, if you know what I mean...
I hope you're enjoying the festive season!

Amazing Lipsticks! Tanya, could you please do a video about your favorite brushes? I've no idea what's the best brush for blush and to define your upper and lower lash line with eyeshadow (thinest line possible) :(

I love the Estee Lauder one! My favourite lip products at the moment are Bobbi Brown lipgloss in 'Hot 6'. So so sparkly!!!
