Autumn is one of my all time favorite seasons; I love the colors, the atmosphere, the cosy nights, boots, jumpers and the endless hot drinks but one of my favorite things about autumn is the make-up, so I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite autumn lip products.
Mac Lipstick in Rebel
This is the most beautiful deep plum berry shade, it’s a very bold lipstick but it’s the ideal autumn color. This is a satin finish (one of my personal favorites) it’s really moisturizing to wear and whilst it’s not a glossy lipstick is does have a shine to it. It has excellent lasting power and stays in place for hours on end, even surpassing the food and drink test – it’s bold color and great lasting power do mean that you have to be a little careful with application because it can be quite stubborn to remove and you don’t want to be going out with a lovely plummy stain on your face. It’s a little expensive at £15.00 but Mac Lipsticks are the perfect treat.
Elf Mineral Lipstick in Runway Pink
This is an old favorite of mine; if you’re not one for a bold lip color then this is the shade for you. Runway Pink is my ideal pink nude shade, it’s has just the right amount of pink in it to prevent ‘foundation lips’ but it’s still a really natural color. It’s has a similar finish to Mac’s Rebel in that it’s moisturizing and has a shine to it but it isn’t a glossy lipstick. This is one of those colors that you can wear daily but it can also be worn on an evening with a strong eye look, it’s so versatile and is really affordable at £5.00.
Rimmel London Kate Moss Lipstick in 107 Wine
If you ask any blogger to recommend a lipstick for autumn, I can guarantee at least 90% will recommend this infamous lipstick. This is probably my current favorite lip product for autumn; it’s a beautiful deep wine red shade and I just love the finish. It’s a matte finish but it is so moisturizing, I often find matte lipsticks to be really drying but this is amazing, it’s so comfortable to wear as well. One thing I really love about wearing this lipstick is the contrast of the color with my ghostly pale skin, I can’t really explain why but I just love how it looks. This retails for £5.49.
Kiko Ultra Glossy Stylo Lipsticks in 814 (Glam Magenta)
If Mac’s Rebel is a little too out there for you then this may be a better choice for you – it’s still a gorgeous autumnal plum color but it applies quite sheer so you still get the color but it’s not as bold to wear on the lips. The formula of these lipsticks is very similar to lip butters; they have the moisture of a lip balm but the color of a lipstick. They’re really moisturizing and so easy to wear as well, they’re not as long lasting but I reapply my lip products frequently throughout the day so that not a big deal to me but this are great day to day lip products. Unfortunately, these aren’t as easy to buy as the others as we don’t stock Kiko in the UK – however, they do have a website you can buy them from, these lipsticks retail for £4.90
This isn’t a typical autumnal color but because it’s quite a muted pink shade I think it’s quite suited to the season, even though it does look a little dark it’s a really easy shade to wear and one that i think you can get away with all year round. They’re quite thick and really creamy but they’re not sticky which you’d think it would be with it being quite thick, but they are actually really pleasant to wear on the lips. I really like the apocalips because they kind of combine lipsticks and lip glosses in one; they have the color of a lipstick and the shine of a lip gloss – how can you go wrong?
So that is some of my favourite autumn lip products! What are you favourite lip products for autumn?
