Getting this post up has been an absolute nightmare, I’ve currently
been sat at my laptop trying to get it fixed for 7 hours. My laptop has served
me well the past 4/5 years and it started giving up on me around April. So
since then I’ve been saving for an iMac, so I finally caved in and ordered
one. It’s something I’ve wanted for years and I can’t wait for it to be
delivered, I think I’m going to be sat at the window stalking any delivery vans
that come up my road the next few days. Anyway, onto the post..
Autumn is my favourite time of year. I just can’t stand the
heat of the summer, but also detest the freezing cold, so Autumn is good for
me. I like the fact that clothes get darker, jackets come out (I’m one of those
people that hates feeling ‘exposed’ aka without some kind of jacket on) and mostly being able to wear darker make up, especially darker lipsticks. I love dark lipstick, and if it
suited me I’d be rocking black lipstick all the time! But today I wanted to
share my favourite lipsticks to wear in Autumn, which does feature some darker
shades but also nudes for when I don’t want to be as daring.
MAC Pure Heroine-
This was only released earlier this year,
so I haven’t worn it much yet. It’s by Lorde for MAC, and when I saw it I had
to own it. It’s a deep plum colour and is an amplified finish. It’s super
creamy but still lasts on the lips, and I find it moisturising so perfect for
when my lips start to dry up in the colder weather.
Lime Crime Centrifuschia-
The swatch makes this look far
more pink than it actually is, but this is deep fuchsia and I see a slightly
red/plumy tone to it. Again this is also really creamy. It leaves a stain on
the lips as it fades and feels so soft on the lips.
I picked up this lipstick when the whole Kylie
Jenner lip craze first came about, I went into the store and had a little look
and after some help from one of the MAC girls I decided to pick up this. It’s a
soft muted pinkish brown and applies on the lips like a dream. I also picked up the Morning
Coffee liner by MAC to go with this and oh my, they’re the perfect pair. When
paired together I get about 5/6 hours wear, which is great for my lips.
YSL Rouge Volupte in #1 Nude Beige-
My eye got caught on these little gold beauties, and since picking up my first on last year I’ve been hooked. Although this isn’t really much of an Autumn colour, it’s just my perfect pinky beige nude so I reach for it a lot. The thing I like most about the Rouge Volupte lipsticks is how creamy they are, they’re so moisturising on the lips and glide on so easily.
MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer in Kooky-
So I took these photos yesterday, and even after showering I still can’t get the stain off my arm, but this isn’t the same as on my lips. The reason this made it into my favourites as I love the colour, pigmentation and finish so much but I just hate that after about an hours wear it starts to flake off, and needs to be reapplied. It’s a real vampy purple.
Revlon Super Lustrous Matte in Mauve It Over-
This is a warm toned pinkish brown which I literally lived in last Autumn, and then I kind of forgot about it until recently I’ve fallen back in love with it. I like that it’s matte but feels slightly velvety without being too drying.
So these my favourite lipsticks to be rocking this Autumn, what’s yours?
