Autumn Winter Lip Edit.

Autumn and Winter is all about those bold, berry lips, and every year I'm excited to crack mine out. Plums and mauve shades are by far my favourite colours to wear so it makes me extremely happy when Autumn rolls around. I have a mix of drugstore and high end products here to show you, so there should be something to fit everyones budget...

MAC Lipstick - Plumful (Rosy Plum): Plumful is my all time favourite lipstick, huge claim, but I've been obsessed with this for about three years so I feel I've given it a good test. It's a very flattering shade which helps to brighten up the skin. This is a lustre finish, so it's going to add a slight sheen to the lips, although it's definitely not as glossy and as the label 'lustre' lets on... It's more on the purple side than pink, but I absolutely love it and in the Autumn/Winter, I don't think you can go wrong with a shade like this.

NARS Velvet Lip Pencil - Cruella (True Red): I felt like I couldn't do a lip edit without mentioning a red...NARS Cruella is one of my favourites as the pencil design makes it so easy to get a defined line, and the formula is long lasting, a must when it comes to rocking a red! This is a true red in my books, it's not orange in tone, nor is it too dark, I feel like this would be great for many skin tones. It's a matte finish but is very creamy to apply and doesn't dry out your lips.

MAC Lipstick - Twig (Brown/Pink): I do think you can still 100% rock a neutral shade in the Autumn, after all they are the most easy lip colour to wear and go with any look! Twig is a bit more on the darker side, making it slightly more statement than other nude shades I own. It's a brown based pink, which is super on trend at the moment, and the satin finish makes it very conformable to wear. If you don't feel like you can rock something bold, this is a lipstick I would highly recommend.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream - Prague (Pinky Purple): This is another bold option, and is more pink than some other mauve purple shades I own, I tend to save this for the evenings. Prague is a stunning vibrant shade which lasts all day and feels so soft and velvety on the lips. I adore NYX lip products, especially their Soft Matte Lip Creams, their affordable, have amazing colour payoff and their shades are stunning, what's not to love?!

Revlon Matte Balm - Sultry (Taupe-y Mauve): This is a new one to my lipstick wardrobe and I really really love it. It's an odd shade to describe, it's kind of taupe, kind of pink and kind of mauve all at the same time, but I can't stop wearing it. Even though it's a matte formula I didn't expect it have amazing colour pay off, I think as 'balm' is also in the name...but boy was I wrong, this stuff is pigmented. It's another one which glides on smoothly but lasts for ages.
