It's this time of year that makes everyone want to break out those wines and plums, lipsticks that is. And why not! I for one love them, they suit my skin tone far more than pink tones people wear during summer. I have collected a few (ok, a lot) reds, plums and wine colours over the years and I have to admit I've never really been brave enough to wear them in the day, but I have a feeling this year is going to be different.
I thought I would share with you the lip products that I know I will be wearing whether it's day or night this Autumn.
Firstly I'm going to start off with my No.7 gem, 'Grace' (Stay Perfect range), I would describe it as a brownish burgundy. I love the formulation of this lipstick, creamy but not shiny (suppose that would be a satin finish?). This is the only formulation I like out of all the No.7 lipsticks, the others are too shiny. I know I'm going to be wearing this particular lipstick a lot in the coming months.
Next are my two MAC lipsticks; 'Rebel', a blogger favourite. I understand the 'hype' around this lipstick, it's a lovely dark black-current colour. You can wear it sheerly by just putting a little bit on and rubbing it in with your fingers or a full on dark lip (like the picture). Totally vampy!
My other MAC lippy is the one I wore in my last post; 'Viva Glam I' (matte). It's a gorgeous burnt red colour. I love the colour payoff of this lipstick and the way it looks on the lips, definitely going to repurchase this when I run out. As always the smell of MAC lipsticks is Vanilla…I lurvvve it!! I could just sniff it all day! That's not weird right?
My final Lipstick is going to be Revlon 'Black Cherry'. This is a similar depth to 'Rebel' but red version. This formulation is got a bit of shine to it, but nothing too extreme. This is another one that I am going to get a lot of use out of. I initially bought it for my mum, but she doesn't wear it…so obviously I am! =)
I know all of them are non glossy finishes, but that is what I prefer personally. But I do have some sheerer deep autumnal tones that you could wear if you're scared (as I once was) of wearing a full on dark/deep lip.
My Models Own Balm in 'Pomegrante' is lovely if you just want to dabble in a darker colour for the day time, it's quite sheer and just gives a hint of colour, a bit like your lip was just bitten…sexy! ;-) You can also build up the colour if you want a glossy bitten look. And the smell of this is just….yumtastic!
Something that is berry toned (obvious in the name) is Revlon's lip butter in 'Berry Smoothie'. The picture shows it to be more pinky but I think on most other lips it will come out more berry toned, as the swatch looks.
Lastly is a lipgloss; Revlon Colourburst lipgloss in 'Bordeaux'. The pigmentation of this gloss is just…wow! It's a similar tone to the 'Black Cherry' but you can apply this so there is a less colour and obviously your lips will be luscious and glossy.
So there are the lippies that I am going to be making use of with the seasonal change! What are you going to be pulling out this Autumn? Have you tired any of those mentioned? What do you think?
