There’s something about the harsh December winds attacking my already chapped lips that makes me think, “Liv, it’s time to whip out what will probably be an incredibly drying lipstick!” I typically favor all shades of red during the winter and Holiday season, but this year I have decided to expand my horizons and share all of my lippie loves with ya’ll! Here are all of the lipsticks in my collection that are giving me good winter vibes, all for under $10!
Ulta Matte Lip Cream in Passionate – $9
Though I claim to love ultra dry lips for the winter, this lipstick actually isn’t drying at all. It’s one of my most comfortable liquid lips and in a classic red shade, which is a nice match for a sharp wing and flushed cheeks. Also, did I mention that they’re buy 2, get 2 free at Ulta until December 25th?
Ulta Matte Lip Cream in Tender – $9
I typically don’t rock a nude this light, but as long as I line my lips with a thick coat of brown and blend this into the center, then I’m ready to go! This lip pairs nicely with a dramatic eye or any eye, really. It’s also good for some holiday eating, because it won’t be too noticeable when it begins to fade away!
AOA Wonder Metal Liquid Lipstick in Forever – $1
This lippie here is one of the cheapest items on the menu, coming in at a smooth $1. You get to hop on the metallic lip trend with some burgundy notes for a new, but sophisticated take on a red lip. It’s subtle enough to pair with most looks, but blingy enough to shine under some twinkly lights.
AOA Wonder Liplock 24 Hour Lipstick in Modern – $1
Another $1 item! Yes, it looks a little patchy, but you can easily clear that up with two coats of it on the lips. It lasts all day long without cracking or crumbling and is a great dramatic lip that will actually hold up to your favorite meals.
NYX Round Case Lipstick in Chic Red – $6
Listen, I love a good matte lip, but they aren’t for everyone or every occassion. For anyone out here looking for a moisturizing, satin finish with a classic red lip, this one is for you!
Maybelline SuperStay 24 Hour Lipstick in Keep it Red – $8
This is one of the earliest drugstore liquid lipsticks, but the formula stands the test of time. It stays on all day and comes with its own gloss. It leaves the lips with a nice berry tone, that will pair nicely with a mauve or plum blush.
What’s your favorite winter lipstick?
