Top 5 Tuesdays | Winter Lips | prettylittlewriter

For this week's Top 5 Tuesdays, I thought I'd share with you my favourite winter lipsticks and what makes them my favourites :)

 From left to right; Mac Velvet Teddy, Max Factor Colour Elixir in Rosewood, Mac Ruby Woo, Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution in Glastonberry & Mac Rebel. 

1. Mac Velvet Teddy.
Purchased only recently, this lipstick has fast become one of my staple shades and maybe even my most favourite lipstick ever. Smooth application for a matte finish, leaving you with a gorgeous brown/nude shade. I have never been a fan of nude shades, however this one has won me over completely.

2. Max Factor Colour Elixir in Rosewood.
Bought simply for the name (Rosewood is the home of my favourite TV show, Pretty Little Liars), this is also a fairly nude shade, but with a hint of pink for added colour. Long lasting and a great finish after application, this lipstick could almost be a dupe for Mac Velvet Teddy.

3. Mac Rebel.
A gorgeous dark purple shade with a slight shimmer to it, this lipstick is my go to plum shade for winter. Not too dark for my pale skin, this shade is perfect for any winter make up look.

4. Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution in Glastonberry.
A very dark, matte purple, this shade only comes out when I'm feeling daring and brave. With it being so dark and only having pale skin, I am still unsure as to whether it suits me, however I have had compliments from others when wearing it, so I guess it kinda does!
Brilliant staying power and a lovely finish on the lips!

5. Mac Ruby Woo.
What is Christmas without a red lip? Any girl knows that red lips are the staple shade for the festive season, and what better shade than Mac's Ruby Woo? Amazing staying power and a gorgeous bright colour, this red lip is the one I always choose to wear.
