Since December has arrived already and the party season is about to begin with Christmas and New Year just around the corner, it is a great time to talk about best lipsticks in winters and some beauty hacks!

Chambor Extreme Wear Transferproof Liquid Lipstick: Shade 484

Lipsticks for winters

  • Chocolate Brown Shade with a slight hint of pink. It is a perfect everyday shade that can be worn to college, casual outings and office as well. It is best for people like me who are not very comfortable carrying darker vampy shades.

  • Feels comfortable on the lips and stays long for around 4 hrs.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream: Transylvania

Lipsticks for winters

  • Dark Brinjal Purple Color. It looks really vampy, fierce and bold.
  • Definitely not apt for offices or any formal event. It is an ultimate party lip shade for those, who want rock that bold look.
  • Does transfer although a very negligible amount. It lasts longer for around 3 to 4 hours minimum.
  • Liquid Cream Lipstick, while applying it’s creamy but after a minute it sits matte, feels like nothing on the lips.
  • The only major drawback of this shade is that it’s streaky and patchy, so it takes around 4 to 5 strokes to build the color. Things can work better when applied with the lip liner.
  • It’s buildable enough for those who want to have dark lips but not too vampy. Otherwise, the overall NYX SMLC range is amazing and not streaky.
  • Pretty good amount of product, average quality but pocket-friendly. It is INR 600 for 8 ml of product.

Pro tips:

  • Use lip balm or lip moisturizer before applying any liquid lipstick otherwise your lips will tend to dry.
  • Dab off the excess in a tissue and then apply the shade appropriately enhancing the shape of your lips.
  • Always make it a point to remove your lipstick with help of makeup remover before going to bed. The best homemade makeup remover is warm coconut oil which most of us usually have in our homes.
