I love this dark-colored lipstick and I love the NARS Audacious line. I can see this as my go-to shade for the winter, it’s moisturizing and it packs in a lot of colors in just one swipe, plus who would say no to this gorgeous berry, even Santa would be pleased.

First of all, I’d like to say that Coloupop did a great job on naming this shade and secondly, that this is such a beautiful rosy mauve color for anyone. It’s considered as one the pink lipstick shades for winter but I can see myself wearing this while hanging out with friends celebrating the beautiful sights of winter.

This would be my favor>ite purple color out of this winter lipstick shades list. It stands in beautiful contrast against the stark white backdrop of snow on winter and brings your look up a notch in such a bold and daring way. If you don’t hav>e a purple lipstick yet, get this.
