Favourite Mac Lipsticks for Winter

When I think about winter makeup, I often think of reds, berries, and plums (you can read about more winter makeup products I love here) Now, I will admit that I don’t wear these colours that often – I tend to lack the commitment needed to wear a bold red lip all day long. However, this in no way lessens my love for darker/bolder lipsticks.

I have a huge addiction to MAC lipsticks, they are so pigmented and have such a wide range of colours- bold lipsticks especially!

My current favourite MAC lipsticks for the holiday/winter season are:


Most of these are satin/matte finishes, which may not always be favourable during the chapped winter months – that’s why I always suggest exfoliating and moisturizing your lips! (My favourite lip moisturizer is the Bite Cosmetics Agave Lip Mask and scrub is by Lush!)

Limited editions:

  • Lingering Kiss
  • Sin (this is a permanent colour, but the Rocky Horror packaging is limited)
  • Fashion Revival
  • Frank N Furter (exclusive to the Rocky Horror collection)

I know a lot of people get frustrated when they read posts on limited edition lipsticks – but I can’t help myself! I have a serious addiction to lipsticks, especially limited edition ones (my thought process is: “limited?! SO if I don’t get it now, I may never get it!? THEN I HAVE TO HAVE IT!”) MAC releases lots of gorgeous bold colours throughout many collections, especially during the holiday seasons. My advice is to keep your eyes peeled and subscribe to their emails to make sure you find out when new products are launched!

    I love these shades, especially Diva. I’m all over plummy or berry shades in the winter eg MAC rebel and captive. Great picks! 🙂
