I loooove lipstick. I try every color, every type and I can never have enough. I usually just wear nudes or pink tones I love switching it up in the winter for parties or events. Not everyone loves red or super dark lipsticks, these lipsticks are great ones to try if you want to try a darker lip in winter.
When wearing darker shades you have to make sure your lips are moisturized, dry cracky lips are no bueno for mattes or dark lips. I always start off by moisturizing my lips. Right now I am using DHC Lip Cream. It will keep your lips feel soft and hydrated for a long time. It goes on silky and your lips feel instantly conditioned.

If you want to try a dark brick red lipstick, the benefit of Grande Lips is that it has a lip plumper. Usually lip plumpers that I have tried are always glosses so if you want to plump your pout try this. I love Rebel Raisin, it’s flattering for all skin tones and I love how it is semi matte. This liquid lipstick will keep your lips feeling hydrated with that matte look. This shade will definitely bring out the vixen in you. I love the texture of this lipstick so much that I need to try it in every color!

This is the only Lipstick Queen lipstick I have tried from the Lipstick Chess Collection. I am completely obsessed. I need the entire collection now. I love this matte dark plum color. I love how it doesn’t dry my lips out and how pretty it looks on. It’s a great lipstick to try if you want to try a dark lip but don’t want to go too red or black. It has more plum/mauve tones in it.

Sassy Lips describes this color as a mocha and I think it’s more of a Cabernet wine red. It has a hint of dark plum and is very flattering on. I love this color because it’s super long wear and when it starts to fade it looks like a stain on. All Caps is the perfect winter lipstick and will look good day to-night. It feels very creamy on and has a pretty shine to it.
Maybelline’s Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick is amazing. I love how easy it is to apply and how rich the color is. I tried Red Punch (number 36) it is a deep, glamorous red. It makes me feel very old Hollywood and it will bring out the star in you. If you are like me and stay away from orange reds you will want to try this. Other colors I want to try in this line are Nude Thrill, Nude Flush and Electric Pink.

Metallic never goes out of style and right now metallic lips are everywhere. I tried Touch in Sol’s Metallist Liquid Foil Lipstick Duo in Jasmine. It is basically two lipsticks in one. You can do a combination of both or wear each separately. The color is like a metallic bronze. If you just wear the matte metallic side it feels like you don’t even have lipstick on. It has a really cool bronzy brown color to it. Adding the gloss to it makes it look super shimmery and fun.

I chose another lipstick from Lipstick Queen. I love Sayonara this liquid lipstick is a really pretty red. It has a matte finish and still feels moisturizing. It’s a dark red that isn’t so dark that you can only wear it during the evening. This is a great red to try if you want to try a red lipstick and never have worn the color before. As soon as you apply this lipstick on your lips you will feel sexy.
