Gorgeous shades of plum for lips are a great trend for winter. So many lip colors are available that you can find one that flatters your own skin tone and personal style. You can choose a very subtle lip gloss or go gothic with a deep bordeaux; it’s up to you!
We tried out different lipsticks and lip glosses to figure out which ones are the best of the crop. Here are the most luscious shades of plum and wine that we found to make your lips stand out.
- Bobbi Brown Lip Color in Plum Shimmer: this moisturizing lip shimmer is comes in a very flattering shade of plum that makes your lips soft and look very chic.
- Aerin Lipstick in Madison: this light plum lipstick is also moisturizing and smells like roses (some love it, others not so much). The gorgeous gold packaging can even be used as a mirror to reapply your lipstick on the go. A great option to add a hint of color while not overdoing it.
- Mary Kay Creme Lipstick in Merlot: those who prefer a more dramatic look or even love the gothic trend, will love this lipstick. It is a deep burgundy and it is best applied with a lip brush.
- Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey: this sheer lipstick is almost a lip gloss and flatters every skin tone. That’s why it’s a classic. If you apply with a light hand, it just gives you a hint of color but you can deepen the shade if you apply more. It is so versatile I’ve been a fan for years.
Other brands like Covergirl, L’Oreal Paris and Neutrogena also offer plum and burgundy shades for lips. And if you’re looking for matching bordeaux and plum nail polishes, check out our suggestions.
