winter lips

Dark lips have become my new favourite thing -- fitting since it's the holiday season.

1. Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Plum
- Probably the oldest product out of this bunch and my introduction to dark lip colours of sorts. I've had and liked / loved this for ages. It leaves the sheerest berry tint while moisturizing and bonus: it has SPF 15.
2. Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick in 829 Sunset Blvd
- A fairly recent purchase when I jumped onto the strong lips bandwagon. Allbeit slightly drying over time, it has enough colour to be the perfect in-between too strong and too light. 
3. Urban Decay Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Colour in F-Bomb
- The first proper red-red I've ever owned / worn, shiny glossy finish and generally kind of perfect.
4. Trish McEvoy Lip Colour in Mulberry
- Well-used as can be seen in the above images; it has a sheer dark berry tint, teeny bit moisturizing, ever so slightly minty, and I've already bought a second in case they suddenly get discontinued.
5. Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss Flash in 982 Black Tie Plum
- I tried this on at a counter but decided to think it over and ordered it online and it finally arrived today after decades of waiting. Perfect for layering over reds, plums, whatevers, impossible to apply just with the little brush because it ends up disastrously blotchy and drag queen-like but amazing colour nonetheless.
