Winter will be among us for a couple more months, and if you are still wondering what kind of lip colors you should rock with your chunky scarves, fur vests, and that glowing melanin. Well, I am here to tell you, sis! 

Dark shades are the way to go. I am a total sucker for beautiful dark lipsticks: matte, suede, gloss—you name it—I don't discriminate. Winter is the perfect time to experiment with your beauty patterns. Scroll through below to find some inspiration in dark lip shades that I think would be perfect for winter.
