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!




Make up haul!

I have to say, but I’m in love with the shopping in Washington state! I’m really spoiled for choice, and even though the tax rates are higher than they are in Georgia, the collections and variety of make-up is much larger. Over the course of my trip, I picked up some items of make-up while out and about the town and this is all that I have collected.

MAC: Just a simple peachy pink blush in Pinch O Peach with a fuchsia pink lipstick in Lickable



PX: Revlon liquid eyeliner in Blackest Black and a red Rimmel lip gloss in 500 Treasure Hunt



Walmart: Warm brown Rimmel Lipsticks ($3.70 each in comparison to the $5 at the PX)
