Lipsticks and gloss: Winter edition

???????????????????????????????

 I love wearing dark shades of lipsticks and gloss during winter months. I think adding a dark color really brings out one’s complexion especially when keeping the rest of your makeup quite light and simple. Here are few of my favorite lipsticks and gloss that I love this season.

These are actually my first YSL purchases and I am quite happy with how pigmented they are and how easy they just glide on. I also love the packaging and the lipstick case they come in. Makes the whole process of buying it so much more exciting 😉

I picked these MAC lip-glosses at the Atlanta airport on the way to the Bahamas. They too are so pigmented in color that you don’t need a lip liner or lipstick under. And if your military, you get a 10% discount at MAC in the airport.

??????????????????????????????? ??????????????????????????????? My next pick is the Urban Decay lipstick in Venom. I saw this on a lot of other blogs and loved how the color looked on many others, so I said I had to get this. It’s a pretty matt lipstick which can sometimes dry out, but I just add a clear lip gloss over to give it a bit of shine!
