Autumn Lipsticks | My Top Four + Swatches

Friday, October 9, 2015

As the weather changes, of course my make-up does too. As we move away from the summer and its bright pinks and corals, we're left with Autumn and Winter's downpour, grey clouds. The smells of damp leaves and a typical deep, berry on the lips. Here we have ladies and gentleman, my top four Autumn lipstick picks.

Autumn lipsticks
Nars Audacious Lipstick in 'Carmen' | £24.00 here
I have probably spoken about this lipstick far too much on my blog over the past few months but it really is just that good. You can't enter the Autumn without a classic, statement red lip and Carmen is my ultimate go to. This is hands down the most pigmented lipstick I own, with amazing staying power this beauty can last through food and drink and still look near enough perfect. Although initially feeling quite velvety on the lips, I find this can dry to quite a matte texture after about an hour. Everybody needs at least one NARS Audacious lipstick in their collection. 

MUA Lipstick in 'Raven' | £1.00 here
Autumn is all about dark lips right?! Well you certainly cannot get anything darker than black. If you're brave enough to wear it, this lipstick has such amazing pigmentation for just £1.00, giving you a super silky finish when applied to the lips. Although not as long lasting as a NARS offering this is definitely a great option if you're looking for something bold and on a budget to wear this halloween. 

MAC 'Diva' | £15.50 here
It just wouldn't be a lipstick post without a couple of MAC offerings thrown in there. Diva is hands down my ultimate go to for the Autumn. A beautiful deep purple with a burgundy undertone which just has Autumnal written all over it. This is a matte finish and can become a little drying on the lips so I'd definitely recommend applying either a lip balm before application or a clear lipgloss after application.

MAC 'Creme in your Coffee' | £15.50  here
A nude offering has to be one of my staples no matter what the time of year and for the Autumn it has to be Creme in your Coffee. As a cremesheen finish this is super moisturising on the lips (Perfect for this time of year!) but thankfully isn't sheer enough to the point where you can't even see it. This adds a lovely brown tone to the lips, once again with a burgundy undertone leaving it looking slightly darker on me than Velvet Teddy does. If you're a bit shy of a red lip and are looking for a go to, everyday nude this season then Creme in your Coffee is the one for you.
