There’s no better time to change up your makeup routine than the winter months, and an easy way to try a new look is with a fun, fresh lipstick shade. Whether you’ve already got a few new tubes that you’re eyeing or you’re ready to embrace a cool new makeup trend on your own, there are some hot lipstick colors that will warm up your look during the cold weather. Ahead, our favorite lip makeup shades for the season.
1. Pumpkin Spice LattéIn case you haven’t had a chance to try it, fall’s favorite seasonal flavor is also a lipstick trend — and it’s still on the menu for winter. To perfect a pumpkin spice latté lip color, you want to use a warm brown shade like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Gloss Plump in Sunlight Shimmer.
2. Ruby Red
A classic red lipstick is perfect for all your winter festivities, and this signature shade pairs well with just about everything and can be jazzed up for a party or toned down for a more casual event. The L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Reds of Worth Lipstick in Successful Red is an elegant, refined, wearable red that is sure to stand out anywhere you wear it.
The right nude lip color can give your pout a subtle pop that blends in seamlessly with the rest of your makeup look. The L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Satin Lipstick in Caramel Latte is a nude lipstick with a satin finish and a subtle shimmer, which is perfect for a more subdued look that has a hint of wintry glam.
4. Red Wine
If you’re a fan of dark, bold lipstick shades, there’s no better time of year than winter to pull out those vampy hues. A deep red, wine-hued lip color like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Reds of Worth Lipstick in Hopeful Red complements any skin tone and can easily be paired with a burgundy eye look for a Bordeaux-inspired monochromatic makeup moment.
5. Cool-Toned PinkA cool-toned pink lipstick is the perfect shade for offsetting the cold weather blues. For those daytime makeup looks where you want a bit more color than a nude, try the L’Oréal Paris Glow Paradise Balm-in-Lipstick with Pomegranate Extract in Beige Eden.
6. Muted Plum
A muted plum shade is great for the colder months. To get the look, try the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Gloss Plump in True Berry, which has a full-coverage, matte formula that feels light for all day wear.
Brighten drab days with a fabulously bright lipstick shade like fuchsia. It plays well with other colors and can transform a simple outfit into a standout look. Layer a few swipes of the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Makeup Luminous Hydrating Lipstick + Nourishing Serum in Splendid Plum to get this eye-catching, must-have hue.
8. True Chocolate
Chocolate lipstick not only looks as rich and decadent as the name suggests, but it’s also a cool way to bring a sweet and sultry winter aesthetic to life with your makeup look. For a true chocolate shade, swipe on the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 8 Hour Pro Lip Gloss, Hydrating Finish in Truffle.
Whether on your sweater, your hair, or your eyelids, violet hues are huge during the winter season. You can rock this shade anywhere, but we particularly love it for playing up your pout. Get the look with the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in Splendid Blackberry.
10. Burnt Orange
Burnt orange is a flattering non-neutral alternative to traditional red lipstick. To get in on the trend, reach for a rich, earth-tone hue like the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Satin Lipstick with Precious Oils in Radiant Bronze. It has a creamy formula packed with precious oils in a flattering mid-tone, neutral shade with an apricot base color and subtle gold shimmer.
This fruit-inspired shade is the ripe pick for a vibrant look, but with a bit of edge. A classic berry hue like the L’Oréal Paris Glow Paradise Balm-in-Lipstick with Pomegranate Extract in Ecstatic Mulberry will instantly give your makeup look a dramatic purple flair.
A sleek and chic glossy lipstick is a simple way to bring an icy look to your pout. Try a gloss like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Gloss Plump in Mirror, and pair it with one of our lipsticks from above for a hydrated and shiny boost.
