Plum Lips

We think there’s nothing more wonderful for a winter lip than a deep plummy stained lip.  It feels more modern than a classic red and we love its brightening effect on our skin tone. It adds an ethereal moodiness to winter beauty especially when applied in a slightly messy fashion (tip: press it on with a finger to give that soft, stained effect and make sure to ditch any remnants of tan – play up the pale, people!)


1. MAC Rebel –  a gorgeous plummy intense tone

2. Lancome LAbsolu Velours – Velours de Violine – velvety and deeply pigmented, one of our favourites.

3. Clinique Black Honey almost lipstick – as the name suggests, one of the ultimate balmy lipsticks.

4. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm stain – genius pencil applicator and a great shade.

5. Stila Brigitte –  a  true wine, balmy stain
