Warm and Cozy Winter Favourites

By Kristine Lam - December 14, 2015

I've been going through a lot of "blah" in life lately and this gloomy, rainy Vancouver weather really wasn't helping. A wonderful friend sent a heart warming/punny card to lift my spirits :) ... It was a nice change from all the instant messaging we use nowadays. The adorable Gudetama was also sent from my brother as a gift. Even he is staying warm with his bacon blanket hurhurhur.

Since the weather awfully dark and chilly, I've been trying to keep things bright with a splash of color on myself. Red lipstick and red nails are a must for this season. I've been loving both the Nars velvet matte lip pencil and the Tony Moly tint. I tend to reach for matte finishes more for lip products during the winter. The staying power for the Tony Moly tint is a-mazing! Remember to apply lip balm after applying the tint for maximum staying power.

As for nails, a great classic red and some neutrals are my go-to's. My pick's here feature a deep red from Revlon, an ivory beige from Zoya and a nice sandy brown from Essie. All 3 are opaque in 2 coats and wears wonderfully.

  1. The items are all very nice! I love the Gudetama Cellphone plug. It looks very cute haha~ I'm thinking about getting the liptone get it tint in the exact same shade too but I'm scared that its too drying even with lipbalm application :-/
