Favourite Autumn Lipsticks

2016-11-05-12-30-31

Whilst I’ve never had a problem sporting lipsticks year-round rather than seasonally, I have to admit that some shades are so autumn appropriate that I had to go and write this post. I’m not one for a super bold lip, you’ll never catch me wearing a vampy shade, but these are all darker shades, more suited to autumn.

To start off, I’m going to talk about actual, classic lipsticks; my three choices here are MAC Syrup, Kiko Smart Lipstick in 915 and KVD Studded Kiss in Lolita. Syrup and the Kiko lipstick are both quite similar, both are berry shades, but Syrup is slightly more sheer. Lolita is a classic burnt red/orange on me. It’s a matte formula, very opaque and perfect for this time of year. All three shades look great on super-pale skin like mine, but I imagine they would work well for everyone.

As for liquid lipstick/crayon formulas, I chose Colourpop Lumiere, KVD Double Dare and Colourpop November. Double dare is probably just the liquid, super-matte, super-long wearing version of Lolita on me. Again, it’s a burnt orange/red shade. Lumiere is one of the Colourpop X Kathleen Lights collabs; it’s a matte Lippie Stix in a berry/mauve shade. It is super opaque and because of this, I tend to blot off some of the lipstick to make it more wearable for everyday wear. Finally, November is another Colourpop X Kathleen Lights collabs and is one of the Ultra-Satin Lips. In the tube it looks to be a pinky-nude shade, but when swatched, and on my lips, it is more of a burnt red/orange similar to Double Dare.

  1. Totally agree. I have no problem wearing most colors year round but some of them are particularly perfect for fall πŸ˜€ Love all your picks! Those pinky brown shades are perfect for this time of year πŸ™‚

  2. These colours are all gorgeous! I can never really pull off dark colours so I’m definitely not an all year rounder, but fall colours are too tempting!

  3. Lolita has been on everybody’s favorites list, but I’m not a huge fan of Kat Von D’s packaging so I’ve been holding out on buying it. Lately I’ve been SO obsessed with colourpop and their shade Frick n Frack is so PERFECT. I’m also pretty sure it’s from the satin matte collection, which is much less drying than the other ultra matte formula! Great shades that you picked though!
