My Lipstick of the Winter

Hello Hello

So I'm back at uni, in my small en-suite and despite the fact that I've only been here a couple of hours, I am missing a few home comforts already. 

I thought I would take the time on this gorgeous, snowy evening to talk about my favourite Lipstick of the winter...

It's the Benefit Full-Finish Lipstick in No Competition

As you can see mine is very used

I have a quite big lips, and so have always avoided wearing dark / red lipsticks, as I always felt as though it made my lips stand more. However recently I have started to embrace and be grateful for what I was given, and have played around with some more daring colours, and this colour is the perfect example.

Its a deep cherry / plum colour which can become very dark if applied to much, but when applied just enough it gives my lips a gorgeous colour, with an almost glossy effect. It provides a gorgeous sheen
See I Have Big Lips


 I often apply this over a lip balm as my lips can sometimes become quite chapped when I wear a lipstick, especially in the winter. However I feel the lip balm provides a base for the colour, so it actually stays on much longer

You can pick this up for £14 from any Benefit counter. 

Until Next Time
