True Winter Lippies
All of the lippies in this series are recs from the ladies of the 12 Blueprints Facebook page, Christine Scaman, or my own swatches.
If you're a True Winter, most of these colors will work on your lips - and your cheeks too, if you use them as blush.
Some may be a touch too warm, too cool, too light or dark. This is normal, because the variation of human coloring within a season means that not all women in a season wear the same colors on the face equally well.
Some of these are discontinued. Check eBay.
Try before you buy, if possible.
Please do share feedback on the recs, or additional recs, in the Comments section.

I'm so glad you put in that clause about, not being able to wear all colours equally 'on the face'.... I mean that's the key isn't it? I'm quite sure I'm a winter, but Revlon's wild orchid is just wrong on my face.... Others are great. funny

It would be great if you posted photos of those lipsticks, as it's hard to imagine what colours are mentioned. I don't use any of those brands so the only way I can compare them with my lipsticks is to google them.

Thank you for this list. As a self-diagnoseed True Winter, I would like to also add Burt's Bees lipstick in Magenta Rush. On me, it is natural-looking, an MLBB shade. The main downside to this lipstick is that it does not last especially long. The color is perfect, though. When I find a similar shade of lipstick with longer staying power, I will post it.

Hey! Could you do an updated version of this for true winters? Most of these lipsticks are discontinued unfortunately!
