Lipstick Craze: Autumn

img_1752.jpg

Lately, with the summer basically gone even though there is still a few more hours of the season, I have really gotten into the Autumn Mood. For me, autumn is the best season because of four reasons: 1) campfires, 2) chunky sweaters, 3) CANDLES, and 4) lipsticks. I feel like lipsticks become a huge part of my makeup look in the fall, because during the summer I tend to either stick with a classic red lip or I go for a nude/light pink. But this is the time where the weather gets cooler and everything becomes colourful with all the leaves falling, I like to think dark lipsticks really emulate that transition. So, without further ado, let me share with you all my top 5 autumn lipsticks

#1: Revlon Moon Drops Lipstick in 79 "Love That Red"

This has to be my all-time favourite colour. It's a beautiful, deep red creme lipstick that is easy to apply and lasts for a decent amount of time, probably 5 hours even through a meal. I usually wear it if I'm going out for a night out and I don't have much of an opportunity to reapply. Unfortunately, this was my mum's that I stole awhile ago and I've discovered it no longer exists. However, Revlon has a new Moon Drops collection with a colour, 710 Orange Flip, which is a similar colour when applied, the only difference being an orange tint.

#2: Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella

I received this as part of my Beauty Insider birthday gift at Sephora last month, and I have fallen in love with it. The cashier spoke highly of this pencil, stating it was one of Nars' best products, and I couldn't agree more. It's gorgeous and lasts forever once it's dried. Of course, as I usually do, I did the "kiss test" on my boyfriend's cheek and it didn't come off, so I was very impressed.

#3: Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick in 30

I first was introduced to Kate Moss's line of lipsticks from blogger Zoella, when she began to rave about 107 - which is also a staple of mine. After trying a few of the other lipsticks, I fell in love with this beauty right here. It's a deep plum, which I feel really suits my autumn-based wardrobe. I think it's really a go-to lipstick for any look and it's very long-lasting.

#4: Nars Semi Matte Lipstick in Scarlett Empress

This one I've heard raved about again and again. I saw countless posts about this all over social media back in the spring months, and I purchased it for my end-of-year dance recital as I needed a deep, rich colour to go with my Spanish-style dance and costume. Now that that dance is in the past, I've been using it as a day-to-day lipstick and I love it. The longevity is amazing

#5: L'oreal Colour Riche in 590 Blushing Berry

Last, but certainly not least, is my most recent lip purchase. This one, as the name suggests, is a berry tone which is essential to this season. I'm quite fond of this colour, the only thing I will say is that it doesn't last as long as the others as it's a cream lipstick. This would be one you'd have to reapply so do keep that in mind if you decide to pick it up
