Winter Lips

Forever Styling has always been a style blog with a sprinkling of beauty and lifestyle but as my interest for beauty has not waned through the years I've decided to bump it up and give it a more regular spot!

I'm still a newbie to beauty reviews and I'm currently waiting on an tech upgrade to help give my photos that studio finish, but if you have any tips or techniques or things that I should be including then please let me know!

It's the winter season, and whilst most are heading straight for the vampy dark look I'm still trying to mix it up! I do love a dark lipstick and there are two included in this post but in winter you can't forget about the timeless nude lip and occasional pop of colour to warm up those icy nights!!


Colour Sensational - Tantalising Taupe 725  - Maybelline

Sadly the block/my photography doesn't bring across the true colour of the lipstick. I have quite pink lips naturally so I love using this when I want to focus on my eyes and keep my lips nuetral.
It's super creamy and moisturising so my lips feel nourished and it also works as a great base if you don't want your natural lip colour tainting a different look!


Lasting Finish Lipstick - Starry Eyed 128 - Rimmel


I love this one for when I want to get my vamp on! It's a gorgeous purple tone which I always head for, I've had bad experiences of dark lipsticks with blue undertones, they just make me look ill! 
Its such a buildable product and also works great as a tint if you just want a hint of purple. It's glides over the lips but I found it was slightly drying as it wore so keep a lip balm handy!


Stay Pout - Rule Breaker - Seventeen

This is very similar to my second lipstick but being a redder hue its a much more achievable look if you're not ready to commit to the dark route. Again its a buildable product so you can stay with a hint of colour or go full on vixen. It's a creamier texture that leaves my lips looking smooth all day.


Matte Lipstick - Peachy Keen - MUA


In winter I sometimes want to be reminded of sunnier days with a pop of colour on my lips.
I've always been a fan of coral tones and own multiple! I love how saturated this product is, such a little creates an intense colour, its only downfall is that, as its a matte lipstick is it very drying on the lips, so make sure you exfoliate and moisturise your lips well first!!
To make me love it even more, it has a little pot of the colour in the base of the tube so that if you prefer to apply with a brush you wont ruin your block!

Please let me know your thoughts on this post! :)



  1. Loved this post. I'm such a lipstick junkie. Definitely my favourite beauty item to collect. I definitely need the starry eyed lipstick from Rimmel. Such a beautiful shade. I love MUA lipstick. I have over 15. I haven't got this one though. I love how it looks darker in the tube but comes out a beautiful coral colour. I think you've done amazing on the photos. Photography improves in time and with the resources. Great post.

  2. All of these lipsticks look stunning on you, and I'm not just saying that! They look so neat on you as well, I usually get nervous to wear bold lip colours beside lipsticks like that tend to bleed on my lips.
