Even though winter is around the corner in Cape Town I still like to add pops of colour to my makeup. I am now at the stage where I have lost my beautiful tan and I need lots of bronzer and definitely bright lippies. Lipstick is one of those easy ways to boost the complexion and here are some new lippie favs to do just that:
If you love a hydrating lippie the new Clarins Rouge Eclat in Pink Cherry from the glow collection is for you. Its one of those lipsticks that glides on and has an amazing colour pay off. I actually was quite decieved when I opened up the lipstick as it looks like it would be more sheer but its a vibrant shade that literally takes one application for a full coat of lippie. This shade is on the darker side of pink and looks amazing day or night or all year round. This bad boy protects lips against dehydration as well as boosting collagen and vitamin E to protect against those free radicals. So looks good as well as taking care of your lips.
If you are a gloss kind of a girl then the NYX gloss butter in Strawberry Parfait is perfect to give you gorgeous juicy looking lips. Its a gloss that really highlights the glow in your complexion. Its a candy shade of pink but you do need about 3 coats to get the right amount of colour. Definitely a great complexion booster.
Last up Mac lipstick in Impassioned is super pigmented lippie that is a bright pink shade that totally lifts my whole complexion and is one that I will be sporting all winter long. Even though a berry lip is always seen as a winter lipstick shade to reach for I need something that will make me not look so pale. A perfect lippie with a fresh face and lots of mascara.
