A good lippie is hands down the easiest way to transform your look from casual to chic. But during winter, the cold, wind, and artificial heating can wreak havoc on our poor lips. Put a lipstick on already chapped lips and you’re left with a pout that’s cracked and drier than the Sahara dessert! Not a cute look.
Sure, you could opt for a tinted lip balm — but it just doesn’t create the same drama as a bold lippie. Thankfully, you don’t have to break up with lipstick during the winter months. There are plenty of lipsticks that not only leave you with a soft, kissable finish, but will also moisturise your lips while you’re wearing them! Oh and don’t worry —they don’t skimp on the pigment, either!
