With thermometers dropping, it’s clear that autumn is here, and winter will be paying a visit very soon. What do we do as beauty junkies when a new season starts? We change our makeup vibes! Summer was all about fresh looking skin, while the winter blues call for a more dramatic look without losing that makeup-no-makeup aesthetic we are so obsessed with.
Even if you are not a massive beauty lover, lipsticks deserve a special place in your beauty cabinet; the fact that you can rock bare skin and just by adding red lipstick, you’re ready to get out of that door like a queen, speaks for itself. Another fact to keep in mind is that lippies can boost your confidence in the blink of an eye! I have felt this myself – going to an important event or date with and without a lipstick you are comfy with makes an absolute difference. With the beginning of the cold days, there are days when we’re just throwing on a pair of jeans and some basics, and the trick to upgrade that “boring” outfit? A matte lippy!
Choosing a lipstick that ticks all the boxes (long-lasting, not sticky, pleasant on the lips, and the list could go on) might be overwhelming. Still, don't worry; among the extensive lipstick collections on offer, we have shortlisted our top ten lipsticks, Beauty Editor approved.
