For some reason, it seems that there are certain shades of lipstick which go hand in hand with Autumn so I thought I would give you a run-down of a few of the lipsticks I'll be reaching for over the next couple of months. Here goes...
Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque in 07
Probably my favourite of the bunch is this strawberry toned Aqua Laque liquid lipstick from Bourjois. This highly pigmented lipstick is one of the longest lasting lipsticks I own and as the name suggests it's like putting water on our lips every time. As much as this feels nice on the lips, I do find it a bit tricky to apply sometimes and I often find myself using a lip brush rather than the applicator, but the results are worth the extra time.
Maybelline Colour Drama in Berry Much
Nothing says Autumn more than a berry lip in my eyes so step in this lipstick from Maybelline. The colour is a deep berry colour, but I like to smudge it in for a more blended shade, which also makes it last even longer (seriously, the swatch pictured on my wrist below would not come off!). A small FYI though, I always, always, always moisturise before putting this one on as I find it can be a little drying on the lips.
MAC Lipstick in Russian Red
There was inevitably going to be a red in this little edit and today that comes in the form of Russian Red from MAC. This blue toned red is perfect for my pale skin tone and is my go to red of choice all year round. I always apply a lip liner under this one, and even though it has a matte finish I don't find it drying on the lips. The colour pay off is brilliant, the swatch below was taken after just two swipes! A definite must have for all you red lipstick loving beauty junkies out there.
Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick in Germanium
This is a slightly different one as when I look at this lipstick it has more of a summer feel to it, but this Autumn I'm definitely going to be using this Revlon lipstick in Geranium. Orange lipsticks have been a big no-no for me in the past but after I found this easy to wear orangy coral colour, I definitely want to wear it all the time. This lipstick has the smoothest application of the lot and the most moisturising formula for a weightless feel. And can we just take a couple of minutes to appreciate the smell of all of the Revlon HD Lipsticks - they're just vanillary goodness in a stick!
