Autumn and Winter Lipstick Picks

Affilier Acheté

I’m not too good with official blogger-y terms (can you tell I just make this stuff up as I go along?), but I’m pretty sure that today I’m bringing you an edit! Here are my favorite Autumn and Winter lipstick picks. These beauties will be gracing my lips until someone forcibly wipes them off when the thaw comes.

Summer pick: By Terry Tint to Lip Pink Palace

Affilier Acheté

by terry tint to lip pink palace My whirlwind shopping trip to Paris (calling a spade a spade) a few months ago, saw me going just a little crazy at the By Terry counter. The truth is, I had so little time (I literally went straight from the store to my hotel to the airport), I had to just read things off my list, and I hadn’t had a chance to play with any of the summer collection. Once home, I saw swatches of the By Terry Tint to Lip Pink Palace and cursed my luck, because I knew it was going to have to be mine, and I could have gotten it for less in Paris.

And showing you the look I wound up using both of them to achieve.

DIY—Make your own lipstick swatch book

Well, as about DIY as I get. I may knit, but I’m not usually a crafty person.

Anyway, I don’t know if you’ve been able to tell, but I’m a bit of a lipstick hoarder. 😉 And you know what? I am not ashamed in the least. I have no regrets.

I just have slight confusion, sometimes, when I’m trying to figure out which color I want to wear. (Okay, to be completely honest, sometimes I even forget that I have certain colors.) I can’t remember exactly what shade of fuchsia NARS Funny Face is, or what color coral I had custom made at the Bite Lip Lab, or what undertones MAC Red has and how it’s different from MAC Absolute Power.

I decided that the thing to do was to make a reference book of my colors, kind of like how you swatch them on your hands when you are shopping for a new color. But I wanted the swatches to be available to me all the time.

So I went to an art supplies store. I had initially thought of buying a sketchbook or a watercolor book, but while I was there, I realized that I had overlooked the perfect thing: A Pastel book.

Pastels are creamy and greasy, just like lipstick, so I figured paper that was good for one should be good for the other. The one thing I was worried about was the lipstick staining the back of the previous page, but I found exactly what I needed in this pad.

I had been contemplating possibly putting parchment or plastic in between the pages, but this is even better. There are what they call “glassine pages” over each page, so that the colors are protected.

Without further ado, here is (some of) my lipstick collection, swatched for all our references.
