Favourite Lipsticks and Nail paints - Winter 2014

Hello everyone!

I'm finally back in Bombay, and coming back home is the best feeling ever! And as promised, here are my favourite lipsticks and nail paints for winter this year. Most of these have been my favourites for fall too!


Nude nail paints are my all-time favourites. And as you know, I am super obsessed with anything rose gold, so I've got Midnight Bronze by Maxfactor. Maybelline also has a gorgeous rose gold shade, which is very similar to this. From the shades above, Emotional by Kryolan and L'oreal Color Riche in Beige Boheme, are both almost the same. Dazzling by Nubar is a very pretty yellow/peach tones holographic colour that I use as a top coat on my nude nail paints.

Oxblood and berry toned shades are perfect for fall/winter, and I always come back to these shades, especially this time of the year. The shades in the picture above are L'oreal Color Riche in Hypnotic Red, Barbera by Nubar, Sparkling Berry by Maxfactor and Topshop's Matte nails in Behave

Purple is one of my favourite colours. I usually use purple nail paints all year round, but tend to go for darker shades during autumn/winter. L'oreal Color Riche in Kimono Empire has been a huge go-to shade for me for the past 3 months and it's amazing! 

When I saw Revlon's Parfumeire range, I thought it was very weird to have nail paints that smell good. It never really made a difference to me. And the shades I've used from this range before had a very annoying smell and I didn't like it. I then tried the Autumn Spice, and I loved the colour! Not only that, your nails actually smell of autumn spice! I can't really describe scents very well, but I can just tell you that it smells so so good!

If you ever ask me what my favourite nail paint is, it's Tempest by China Glaze, hands down. I've never been this loyal to a nail colour. I keep going back to it, be it summer or winter! It's a gorgeous blue/purple holographic colour and I have 4 bottles just so that I don't run out!

Mustard is the colour for autumn. And of course, I had to include mustard nails too! Lovey Dovey from Colorbar is really pretty and mustard-y and not too bright! Give it a shot if you're looking for something like this.

I love berry toned and bold lips more this time of the year. And I also tend to go for darker nude shades too. Kinda Sexy and Flat Out Fabulous are all-time favourites, and I use them throughout the year. Two lipsticks from above are limited edition, but if you know shades that are similar to these, please leave them in the comments below, because I've been reaching out for these lipsticks most of October and November, especially Bad Girl Riri, and it would be pretty cool if we could find dupes for the same! 

I hope this post helps you with nail paint and lipstick choices for this season! Tell me your favourite lipstick this season in the comments below so I can maybe go get some more for myself haha! 

Have a lovely Sunday!

    1. It's a limited edition and I got it over a year back, so I don't remember. But I don't think the price was much different from the regular price of Mac lipsticks :)

  4. Cosmo led me to your blog and I gotta say, so excited to see you feature Revlon's Parisian Passion. I had a majorly impulsive shopping binge the other day and picked it up - debuted it today and gah, the gloss was so great. It stayed the entire day; I was amazed! I'm inspired to go get Berry Couture now too. Do you layer the two or wear them individually?
