Autumnal Lipstick Loves

Most females are obsessed with one type of beauty product in particular. Some are all about the perfect eyebrows, others are all about the highlight that pops, whereas I'm mainly focused on having a pretty pink pout. I've always been 'that' girl, who owns far too many lip balms, and lipsticks. I just can't seem to resist the temptation!

As it's now Autumn, I tend to steer away from the bright pink, glossy look, and I gravitate more towards browny nudes, and berry shades. I do have a purple too, but whether, or not I'm brave enough to crack that one out this year is a completely different matter.

I thought today would be the perfect time to talk about my 4 go-to lipsticks for this time of the year, seeing as Friday marked the end of Summer! I'd be interested to hear what you think, and what your favourites are, because of course I'm always on the hunt for an excuse to spend more money on makeup!

Who remembers back to the time when Revlon's lip butters were all the rage? I think it was in 2012 when every single YouTuber, blogger and their mum had been hyping up this collection like there was no tomorrow. I tried out a couple of the shades then, but I just wasn't a fan, and couldn't understand why they were getting so much recognition. However, since picking up this shade about a year, or so ago, I can honestly say it's one of the nicest lipsticks I've ever tried! I suppose the point is that it's not a lipstick, as such, but a lip butter instead. That could explain why it's so moisturising, and softening, because it contains mango, shea, and coconut butter (would you believe). The name 'Berry Smoothie' is also very fitting, as it really is the perfect berry shade for the Autumn/Winter months. If I don't know what to wear on my lips, but I don't want anything matte, then I'll always reach for this without a doubt!
As I've already mentioned, I don't usually go for pinky nudes during this time of the year, as I'm more focused on darker, browny ones. This shade from L'oreal is exactly what I'm talking about. It isn't too bright, or girlie, but it isn't super dull, or dark either. It's the perfect 'my lips but better shade' for the cooler months. It makes your lips feel hydrated, and supple, as there's the slightest layer of glossiness, which is just what I like! Although this is slightly irrelevant, I also like the smell, because it isn't too overpowering, so it won't put you off. If you're looking for the perfect browny nude, then this ones for you!
 

If there's such a thing as an all-round perfect lipstick, then I'm 99.5% sure this would be the one. I never used to be a fan of matte formulas, because I do tend to get fairly dry lips, but honestly, I cannot say enough good words about this one from Seventeen. Not only is it incredibly pigmented, but it's absolutely ideal now that we are in September. I've been waiting all year to start wearing it again, and I'm so happy that I finally can! The packaging is really sleek, and luxurious looking, and for only £4.49, I think you're onto a winner with this one. However, if you're into more reds, or purples, there will definitely be something like that in the Mega Matte range that floats your boat.
 
 
"Ooooh, a lip lacquer", I hear you say. I thought I'd throw in something just as lovely, but a little bit different for the end of this post. I'm not sure if I've ever seen another lip lacquer on the market, aside from this one. It's a hard one to describe, because it's not your average lipstick, but it certainly isn't a lip gloss either. I suppose it's midway between them both? It's incredibly pigmented, glossy, and long-lasting, and it can be easily applied with the doe-foot applicator, which allows you to be neat, and precise. I think the packaging is almost something from out of space, as it's pretty unique, and all of the names are relating to space, but I love it none-the-less, and think that's what makes it stand out. I really would like to try out more colours in this range too, particularly 'Stellar', and 'Apocaliptic'.
 
Remember to let me know what your favourite Autumnal lipstick shades are, and I'll be sure to check them out. Have I convinced you to buy any of the ones that I've mentioned today?
 
Lots of love always,
