Holiday Special | Top 5 Lipsticks That are Perfect for Fall / Winter

Fall is all about the changing colours. Transitioning from sultry hot summers, fall is all about embracing the winds before temperatures drop(here’s hoping they do!). While many would consider them earthy tones to be this season’s situation, when it comes to those lips, fall is the perfect opportunity to break into some vibrant tones along with the basics. Here’s looking at the favourites from this fall that could be carried on to the coming winter. 

Zoë's Red - L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Collection Exclusive Reds
 This was my go-to color this fall season. A very berry red and just perfect for the Indian skin tone, this shade can be perfect for a 9 to 5 day and for the after hours as well.

Fine Wine - Lakme Absolute Gloss Addict Lip Color
A deep berry pink with hints of silver shimmer, this one is a stunner. I love it for the glittery part ( I love most things shiny!). The texture is smooth and about two swipes can give a subtle color, good enough for the day. The best part about this fine piece of makeup is that it is non-greasy, so the summer fall heat can seldom melt it away.

Nude Beige - Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte
Nope, this nude will not make your lips disappear into your face. A beige with a tint of pink, a spot of shine and warm undertones, this one is anything less of a typical nude boring shade. It's creamy with a hint of a raspberry scent. And the packaging is nothing short of royalty! Yup, I love this one!

Purple Passion - Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Matte Sculpting Lipstick 
This one has been around for a while and is a clear winner when it comes to bold colours.  Dark and berry-striden and enriched with a creamy texture, this one is worth every bit of that large hole in your wallet afterwards.

Zenith - MAC Guo Pei Collection
Save the best for the last? MAC is the reigning queen of lipstick brands and love adding a twist to their collections. Guo Pei, China’s famed haute couturier, joined hands with MAC to bring some beautiful jewel tones and rich neutrals. My favorite is the long lasting creamy nude, Zenith. Perfect for all occasions and all times of the day. And do not miss the gorgeous packaging. 

While most of these lipsticks are not available in the Indian market, you can always ask your friends and relatives to get them for you during the next trip abroad. After all, you can never have enough lipsticks (not when they are winning both in the colour and packaging department).
