15 Super Witchy Lipsticks To Get Involved With This Winter
You need one (or 10) of these in your makeup bag this winter.
There’s three things we bloody love about winter. 1) The festivities… Halloween, Bonfire Night & Christmas really are the best holidays after all… 2) Call us basic but Pumpkin Spice Lattes really are the one… and 3) the fact that winter’s the time when you can really go all OUT with makeup.
Because no matter how much the glowy, beachy, no makeup makeup look is great and everything unless you’re Gigi Hadid it can be tricky to pull off irl. And when it comes to winter, nothing really updates your AW makeup look like a good dark berry lipstick. Right? Right.

So whether you’re looking for a witchy-themed lippie specifically or you want a gothic shade that can carry you right through ‘til Christmas, here are 15 of our absolute favourites that you can buy, like now.
MAC Shadescents Lipstick in Heroine, £16.50
Ok so bright lipsticks can take some confidence to wear, but we think the name of this one sums it up really. Heroine is a super bright purple hue that will stand-out for all the right reasons.
L’Oreal Balmain Color Riche Couture Lipstick in Liberation, £12.99
Another great purple shade is this one from L’Oreal’s new Balmain collection. It’s a dark, dusky purple that looks especially fab on darker skin tones. Plus – Balmain?! You fancy.
Ciate Glitter Flip in Iconic, £17
This liquid lipstick is a clever little hybrid that turns to glitter when you smack your lips together. The Iconic shade is a gorgeous metallic blue that’s totally more wearable than it sounds.
Urban Decay Metallized Vice Lipstick in Asphyxia, £15.50
A creamy lipstick with a hefty dose of pearlescent pigments, this greyish shade is perfect for those who want a gothic style look – without going uber dark.
Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Glastonberry, £24
Alright so this shade might’ve been made with festivals in mind, but we think it’s the perrrrrfect winter berry hue. The dark aubergine shade suits literally all skin tones, and just lasts and lasts.
Barry M Lip Paint in Black, £4.99
Dedicated to the cause? Go for a full-on black lipstick. Our favourite is this one from Barry M as it lasts for ages and doesn’t dry out your lips and crack.
Givenchy Le Rouge Sculpt Lipstick in Sculpt’in Rouge, £28
Now Givenchy’s Le Rouge Sculpt is summat special. Why? Because it’s a redder than red lipstick with an inbuilt black tip meaning you get a killer red lip with a black ombre liner without even trying. Smudge your lips together for a gradiant ombre look or apply super precisely for a sharp black line.
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Roxy, £17
No one knows gothic make-up like the legend that is Kat Von D. Her range of Everlasting Lipsticks have so many shades perfect for a grungy dark lip look. Our favourite at the moment though has to be Roxy, an amazing punchy purple.
Lime Crime Slither Collection Velvetines in Nightshade, £16
Another brand that knows lipstick hues has gotta be Lime Crime. ‘Nightshade’ is part of their Slither Collection and is a gorgeous deep berry plum shade that’s so dark, if you layer it enough, you can get it to turn totally black.
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Black Cherry, £7.99
If you want to try out a darker shade for winter, but are still a bit scared of going full on Addams Family, Revlon’s Black Cherry is perfect. It’s a brown-shade of red, that’s still super moisturising on the lips. Love.
Maybelline Color Lip Drama Lip Pencil in Berry Much, £4.99
Any lipstick lover worth their salt will know that pencils deliver on long-lasting wearability, especially when it comes to darker shades. Maybelline’s Lip Pencil in Berry Much is amazingly soft, so you can apply it just like a lipstick, but be safe in the knowledge that it’ll last all night long.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania, £6
The lipstick brand with the dupes of all dupes, NYX is amazing at creating high-end lustworthy lipsticks, at way more affordable prices. One of our all time favourite shades is Transylvania – a spooky midnight purple.
Too Faced Melted Matte Lipgloss in Granny Panties, £19
If you’re a red lip kinda girl then this is the hue for you. It’s still a red, but it’s packed full of way more pigments meaning it’s super dark. It’s officially our #1 red lipstick shade of the winter.
Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick in Miss Conduct, £19
A deep, warm plum shade that looks great on every skin tone going, Smashbox’s Always On Matte Liquid Lipsticks deliver perfect full coverage colour in just one swipe.
NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Amsterdam, £21
A rusty garnet shade, this is the perfect Autumnal update to your lipstick collection. With rich, copper pigments this one is particularly suited for anyone with a cool toned complexion.
