Autumn is nearly upon us, everyone! I cannot believe that the summer season is nearly gone. As sad as I am to see summer go, I am very excited for autumn to roll in because it is by far my favourite season! Everything about autumn is delightful - the clothes, the leaves changing, Halloween, the candle scents, and best of all, the makeup. I love fall-inspired makeup looks, especially lip colours because I feel lips are the most expressive component of any makeup look, and lipstick is for sure this girl's best friend. These five lipsticks are my go-to's in these cosy autumn months.
(1) NYX Lip and Cheek Souffle in Cocoa Bean
Gotta love NYX products. This one actually came to me in an Ipsy subscription bag back in May or June, before I cancelled my subscription (you can read about why I cancelled that subscription here). I was a bit sceptical at first - but who wouldn't be? I was like, is it a lipstick that goes on your cheeks, too? Or a blush that goes on your lips? I gave it a go and was pleasantly surprised. It's a lovely product, as both a blush and a lipstick. I always think a neutral colour, such as this one, is very nice for when you're looking for a lip product that isn't too out-there or you want a more conservative makeup look.
(2) Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip in Mama
I purchased this Colourpop lippie early in the summer in a bundle of three liquid lipsticks called Up and Away. 'Mama' quickly became my favourite shade of the three (not to belittle the others, of course). As described by the website, it is a burnt orange shade that really pops on the lips. I think this is a perfect autumnal lipstick because the shade is very reminiscent of the colour of falling leaves. I use this more as a full-faced special occasion type of lip product, but it can certainly be used as a day-to-day product if you're brave enough to do so.
(3) NYX Lip Lingerie 12 Exotic
One of the first liquid lipsticks I've ever purchased with this one by NYX and it quickly became one of my favourites. I use it religiously in autumn. It's a gorgeous mauve that lasts for hours, even through eating and drinking. I think it is easily paired with any outfit and it's perfect for when you're on the go as it rarely requires reapplication. Another bonus is that because it is an NYX product, it is inexpensive - so purchasing one of these bad boys (or a few in different colours!) won't break the bank.
(4) Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate Moss 30
For the longest time, I have loved Kate Moss' collection of Rimmel London lipsticks. I own a few but my personal favourite for this season is this plum purple lipstick. I love wearing this shade, I think it looks so nice with a neutral brown eye look on a cool autumn day. Because it's a deep colour and it's pretty matte, I find it can dry out your lips easier but that problem is easily avoided if you coat your lips with a layer of lip balm before applying the lipstick.
(5) L'Oréal Colour Riche 402 Blake's Red
Of course, I had to include a red lippie because it's absolutely classic and, in my opinion, a perfect colour for fall. I am in love with this collection by L'Oréal and this shade of red is my favourite out of all the ones I own. It is a lovely long-lasting matte shade that really pops on the lip and I think it would really compliment any skin tone. I typically wear it with minimal eye makeup because I think it looks best as the main focus on the face.
