Hey guys, today on the blog I’m talking about my 5 favourite dark lipsticks for Autumn. The Autumn season is my favourite for both fashion and make-up with all the stylish layering and warm dark colours. You can 100% wear a dark lip all year round don’t let anyone tell you otherwise but here are a handful I love for this time of year…
NYX Soft Matte lip Creme in Abu Dhabi this is a stunning brown toned nude. Perfect for everyday wear and for any autumnal outfit you decide to throw on that day. The formula is moussey and buttery on the lips meaning it doesn’t leave your puckers dry and cracked an added bonus in the colder weather
ColourPop Ultra matte lip in Chilli Chilli this brand is such good value for money for the quality of the products. The ultra matte lip is one of my fave lip products the formula is super long wearing (very drying) so if you can’t cope with that these are not for you. Chilli Chilli is a dark brown lip with red undertones, my tip for this would be to always wear it with a lip liner because it can start to bleed through the day.
Gerard Cosmetics matte lipstick in 1995 is a muted red with brown undertones and has to be one of my favourite lipsticks for all year round but especially the autumn. It’s easy to wear and style and is suitable for any eye look. 1995 is a matte formula and lasts well on the lips aswell as being really comfortable. Not to mention Gerard Cosmetics is an amazing affordable brand and they do lip products so well.
MAC Lipstick in Dark Side this is one of MAC’s amplified lipsticks which is more of a satin sheer formula which you can build to your desired colour pay off. Dark Side is a dark purple with hints of red throughout, it is very vampy and appropriate for the autumn and winter months. Comfortable on the lips which is always a bonus.
Anastasia Beverly Hills in Sarafine a statement red lip. A bold red is a lip colour everyone needs for all year round but this dark blood red is my favourite shade for the autumn/winter months. ABH’s liquid lipsticks are the most long lasting lip product I have ever used, they aren’t the most comfortable formula but I think it is worth it for the longevity of the product. This is another lip you need to wear with a lip liner due to bleeding throughout the day. Two layers of this gives you the perfect application and colour pay off.
The best thing about lip products is every shade looks different and beautiful on every individual therefore just because these are my favourites and compliment my skin tone doesn’t mean they will be your faves but they are 5 products that I would recommend to everyone not just for the shades but for the formulation.
