Top 3 A/W Lipsticks

Around this time of year, I tend to back away from bright, garish lipsticks, and I usually gravitate towards deeper, berry shades. I've picked out my top 3 that I'd like to share with all of you today, and I typically switch between them, depending on my mood, the weather, and my outfit that day. They are all budget friendly options, because they are all under £10, and you can buy them from either Boots, or Superdrug, so they are readily available. Although they are all deeper shades in comparison to vibrant, summery ones, they are all still quite different. The one towards the left is quite a sultry, cerise shade in a liquid form, the middle one is a very dark plum in quite a glossy form, and the one towards the far right is an everyday, neutral pink, but it's more appropriate for the colder months, and it's in a crayon form, so it's quite matte in comparison to the other two.
Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer in Celestial / £6.49 - I don't actually think that I've ever spoken about this lip lacquer on my blog before. When I first purchased it right back at the beginning of the year, and I tried it out initially, I didn't really know how I felt about it. It's an everyday shade, but it's a darker version, which makes it a lot more appropriate to wear during these wintery months. For those of you who are less familiar with what a lip lacquer is, it's the same consistency as a lipgloss, but it doesn't really appear as a lipgloss, because it dries more matte than that. It's not the sort of shade that I would opt for during the spring, and summer months, but in the time between about September - February, I absolutely love this product! I haven't worn it too much lately, but that's only because I haven't really been wearing makeup all that often, as I'm either at school, chilling at homes, or I'm blogging. It doesn't have the nicest of smells, but if you can look past that, then I'm pretty sure anyone would love wearing this. Considering it's Rimmel, which is a drugstore brand, I actually think that the packaging is really sophisticated, and I also really like the doe foot applicator, because you can easily apply the product to your lips, without it smearing everywhere, as the applicator fits perfectly to the shape of your lips. There are other darker shades in the range, but I actually am a massive fan of this product, and so I would definitely considering trying out some other, deeper colours.
Topshop Lipstick in Fast Lane / £8.00 - Can you believe I'm including a purple lipstick in my 'Top 3'? If I were you, I would be pretty shocked! Some of you may not know this about me, but believe it or not, I'm actually not shy at all when it comes to my lipstick choices. I would happily pose for a photo wearing blue lipstick if I really wanted to, and if I found one that was flattering enough. Whenever I put up fashion posts, I'm always wearing pretty neutral lipsticks, and so I thought that I'd release the crazy side of myself in today's post, and share with you a vampy lipstick, which is spot on for this time of year. Considering Topshop is quite an expensive brand to say the least, I was pretty sceptical when I realised that they had brought out an entire beauty range. For a good few months, I was debating whether or not to bite the bullet, and purchase this product, and I'm so glad I did. I also have another brighter lipstick that I wear in the warmer months, but that isn't the main focus in this post. Purple lipsticks are incredibly hard to pull off, and I'm not stating that I can do that at all, but I believe that makeup is an expression of an individual, and Autumn/Winter is the time for me that I feel it's appropriate to wear whatever I like on my face, regardless of how deep it is. If any of you are looking for a vampy, plum shade, then this one really is the best choice that you could go for. It is difficult to apply, and it requires a lot of precision, but once you have mastered the technique (once again, I'm not saying that I have), it's a beautiful shade for day, and night. It's quite glossy too, which is always an added bonus, right?
Revlon Colourburst Matte Balm in Elusive / £7.99 - Another lip product that I have previously mentioned on my blog is this matte balm by Revlon. Seeing as it's matte, I never usually wear it during the Spring/Summer, because it would only dry my lips out more, but during the Autumn/Winter, I actually wear it quite regularly. It's a gorgeous, dusky pink, which is perfect for this time of year, and even though it's matte, it doesn't emphasise any cracks, or dry parts. It lasts for quite a long time, and it has a really nice finish to the lips, so I think that it would suit anyone. You can always layer a deeper rosy gloss over the top of it if you don't like such a matte finish, but I don't have a problem with it at all! I think that it's very flattering on my skin tone, and once again, even though it's a drugstore brand, the packaging is really sleek, and each crayon reflects the colour that you will see inside, which is actually spot on to what you do receive.
What lip colours do you gravitate towards during the Autumn/Winter?
Lots of love,
