Beauty & Style
As the winter days begin to settle in, our skin starts to feel rough and dry which leaves our lips looking a bit dull and lackluster. With winter chapped lips, some lip balms and chap sticks end up making your lips look dead- giving them a white/grey cast. With moisture rich lipsticks, full color with intense moisture can even out any fine lines and hide any dead skin on your lips. Hydrating your lips will leave you with a perfectly glossy pout regardless of the shade you pick.
We’ve gathered up some winter lovely lipsticks to keep your lips smooth and supple with the dry, harsh weather. These lipsticks will heal dry lips with an infusion of vitamins and natural oils to make you look polished instead of parched. Rich, moisturizing lip colors aren’t just meant for hydrating but the bolder, bright hues will gives your lips some added style.
