My favourite Red Lipsticks for Autumn and Winter

In Autumn and Winter, I tend to wear red lipstick more often - I suppose it gives bit of warmth and color in the dull winter months. Also red lipstick never seems to go out of fashion and it suits every occasion.  I probably own over 100 lipsticks ( I am a makeup artist and I need them... all), so  it was very hard to limit the stack to only three lipsticks, but these are the ones that I have been wearing most lately and one of them is always in my bag.

Tom Ford  Lipstick - Black Orchid

Black Orchid is a vampy deep berry red with blue undertones. The formula is very long lasting and yet moisturising. The only thing that I don't like about this lipstick (beside the obvious fact that its crazy expensive) is that it doesn't apply evenly and you will need several layers to make it work. But once properly applied it looks beautiful and so mysterious, especially worn with a black dress. If Black Orchid is out of your price league, a good dupe and almost similar in color is the Benefit Ms. Behavin'. 

NARS Lipstick - Red Lizard
Red Lizard is a classic red with blue undertones ( remember blue undertones makes your teeth white!) This one looks great on paler complexions and would really suits any occasion. Although not completely matte it is indeed more on the matte side, so it can be bit drying but on the positive note it can stay put all day ( without eating and drinking that is). 

Dior Rouge 813/5th Avenue
Rouge 813 - 5th Avenue is a dark red with slight brown undertones and some berry tones to it. It changes the tones depending on the light - outdoors, it looks more like deep red wine color whereas indoors it looks more like a true dark red.  The Dior Rouge lipsticks have also some lip benefits such as hyaloranic acid which will deep hydrate your lips making the look fuller and plumper. The formula is really moisturising and the lipstick feels almost like a balm on my lips. 

When you are choosing lipstick, always try it on your lips to avoid disappointment, because the color in the tube is not that color thats gonna be on your lips. 

Do you tend to wear berry and dark reds in winter too? What are your favourite lipsticks for the Autumn and Winter?
