Five on-trend lippie shades to try this winter

Monday, 12 June 2017

Lipstick, glorious lipstick. Whether you’re a true #BeautyAddict and you can’t leave home without it, or you have one trusted go-to shade, you can’t deny that lipstick has an undeniable allure and it instantly updates your look. Experiment with a new hue and re-up your collection with these on-trend shades.

’90s Rose

Romantic and the perfect addition to your lipstick collection, this rose won’t leave you hanging. Transition your lippie look with ease this winter and opt for muted rose and warm pink hues. They’re not quite as bright as the other on-trend colours this season, making them ideal for the more conservative lipstick lover.

Electric Orange

Orange you ready to try something new? See what we did there? Anyway. This may be slightly out of your comfort zone, but this pop of colour can seriously brighten up your mood and any winter ensemble. Slightly bolder and more daring than the red hues worn last year, we saw many a celeb don this fresh shade at Fashion Week and on red carpets. You can transition slowly and try an energetic orange-red, or opt for tangerine.

Two-toned Lips

When you can’t choose, go ombré! Be bold and experiment with colour with this top trend. Beauties on the gram are loving it and it’s easy to see why. Wear your two favourite colours to match your ensemble, or invest in the nifty duos that contain two shades. For a fuller pout, line your lips to add more dimension.

Oh My Gloss

Shiny, metallic aesthetics are in and beauties everywhere are experimenting with the futuristic style. If you’re not ready to go full-on glitter, the holographic lip trend could be a great way to step-up your lipstick game. It’s a fun nod to your teen phase when everything was high-gloss and shine – and honestly, some pep in your step is much appreciated when the sun no longer plays along. Wear a gloss with a hint of colour, rock your favourite lippy and add some shine, or go full-on glossy. It all depends on your mood. Steer clear of sticky counterparts.

Marvelous Magenta

If you’re tired of the basics, add some colour with this playful hybrid between red and deep purple. Perfect for day and night, magenta tones will boost your mood and looks stylish without even trying. Simply apply and rock it with confidence!

    Number 10 Oh My Gloss! My favorite because its ultra-light, non-greasy, non-sticky and non drying formula. Also has 4 oils to nourish your lips with pure color pigments for glossy finish.

    Wow, all these shades are beautiful. My personal fav would be the Catrice Ultimate Colour in Pinker-bell. Reminds me of MACs “Heroine” matte lipstick

    Benefit have also just released an ombre range which is amazing. They have a wide variety of colours from browns (which I prefer) to red, pinks and orange tones. Must try!

    Electric orange will brighten up your entire wardrobe. The citrus, rustic, fiery blazing bold shades. I adore the eye-catching statement look.
