I'm rather self conscious with my naturally full and pigmented lips, so it's hard to find a lip color that goes on right, and other times a color is too aggressive and makes me feel as if my lips are drawing a ton of unwanted attention. Still, I'm always on the look out for suitable colors that do the whole job elegantly: full coverage, moisturizing, and smooth, long lasting hold without the gaudiness.

I looked into Laura Mercier's makeup collection and picked up the perfect combination for a chic winter look: an edgy red-based plum lip from the 'Velour Lovers' collection and a wispy lavender blush for the cheeks. While perusing the lip stick swatches, I also discovered new colors that work on my cheeks - surprisingly I hadn't tried using purply hues before, considering that they go best with cooler skin tones. I'd attempted deep wine/purple lips in the past, but perhaps leaving out a complementary lip liner (this should never be darker than your lipstick, but maybe a shade lighter) and the right cheek color threw it off. I did the brunt of the work and got the right swatches, all linked above :) if any of you end up trying the Velour Lovers Lip Colour, I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments section. x

This colour is beautiful. Try Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks, as even the matte ones are smooth and not drying.
