My Favourite Autumnal Lipsticks | October Guest Post Month

I am SO excited that we're officially in Autumn! It's by far my favourite season; there's the crunchy leaves, the thick layers, the autumnal boots, and of course the gold eyes, and berry lips. So, I dug out my favourite Autumn Lipsticks to share with you all today. Some are drugstore, and some are higher end, but these are my Go To shades for the next few months. I hope you enjoy!
From Left to Right: Revlon Colourburst Lip Crayon in "Crush", Kylie Lip Kit "Kourt K", Rimmel Kate Moss in "Retro Red", MAC "Diva", Topshop Lips in "Inhibition", and NARS Sheer Lipstick in the shade "Damage".
Revlon Colourburst - Crush

My favourite thing about the colourburst range is the peppermint tingly sensation you get once applied! It's also really hydrating, which is exactly what I need in the chilly Autumnal weather, because if you've read my previous posts, then you will know that I get the worst dry chapped lips possible. It's quite a deep berry colour, but due to it's sheer finish, it looks so gorgeous and natural on the lips.

Kylie Lip Kit - Kourt K 

I've already talked about this in my Lip Kit Reviews, but I just need to give a bit hats off for Kylie for creating a dark shade liquid lipstick formula that doesn't look patchy!! There's a lot of mixed reviews about these Lip Kits, but I honestly love them. I think they're fab, and if it wasn't for customs fees, I'm pretty sure I would own the entire collection by now. This shade is arghhh.. just wow! It's my colour completely - I love a good dark lip in Autumn time, as you can probably tell by my swatches!

Rimmel Kate Moss - Retro Red

This one has more of a pinker undertone compared to the rest; it's that perfect berry colour. It looks so great on it's own too! I wear this when I'm feeling lazy with my eye shadow, because it's just a nice statement look. Saying that, it obviously looks perfect paired with a gold eye too. I think this is the cheapest of the selection, so if you're on a budget I would highly recommend picking this up during the season.

MAC - Diva

This, and Velvet Teddy will always be my favourite MAC Lipsticks. I don't know what it is about the matte formulas from MAC, but I find they work really well with my lips opposed to every other matte formula which will eventually dry out my lips. I really love the red/pink vibe it has going for it. I went through a phase 2 years ago where I pretty much wore this every day of Autumn, and I think it's definitely going to make a big reappearance this season too.

Topshop - Inhibition

This is my second repurchase of this shade, which was actually the first purple shade I ever owned, and I've stuck by it ever since. I do find that it dries my lips out slightly, but out of loyalty, I will never give up my love for this lipstick.

NARS Sheer Lipstick - Damage

Again, pulling this out from excessive wear through previous Autumns. I can't express my love for this enough! I think the NARS Sheer Lipsticks are so underrated. The formula is so moisturising, and so satisfying to sit on the lips all day. This colour also looks so perfect in a sheer formula! It's become my handbag lipstick now. Whenever I forget to apply a lip colour in the morning, I just apply this on the go, and due to it's sheer finish, its guaranteed an easy application too!

What are your favourite Autumnal Lip Picks?
