I have always been one to default to the more neutral tones for winter. Let me not lie lipstick shades with a neutral undertone have always been my go-to, whether it’s going to work, work events, or date nights throughout all seasons. I’m the least experimental consumer imaginable. As a result, my lipstick collection is not the most versatile in shades and finishes. Since I’m on this explorative journey this year, being bold and vibrant in my lipstick choices this winter is on my to-do list.
There is something ethereal about the idea of colour to brighten up dull winter days and gloomy winter nights. Naturally, I associate winter with layering and comfort, which often means I veer away from boldness and sexiness. As such, adding a touch of red to my winter looks will enforce that alluring, captivating, and bold aura, which is a plus during the season. Bring it on winter.
Here is a round-up of the best Classic Red to try this Winter:
MAC Cosmetics – Ruby Woo
Undoubtedly the most popular Classic Red lipstick shade to ever exist. Ruby Woo is also the inspiration behind Rihanna’s Riri Woo limited edition lipstick shade which was created in collaboration with the brand.
FENTY BEAUTY Stunna Lip Paint – Longwear Fluid Lip Colour
Rihanna’s first red lipstick under her Fenty Beauty label is widely celebrated for being universally flattering. Its matte formula will last until one decides to remove it.
ESTÉE LAUDER – Pure Colour Desire Rouge Excess Liquid
Estée Lauder’s Pure Colour Desire (Rouge Excess Liquid) will give you instant full coverage with high pigmentation and amazing wear. It glides on smoothly giving you a lightweight and non-drying feeling.
