My favourite Autumn Lip colours

Autumn is now in full swing and it's no secret that I am a fan of the colder months. I love everything about autumn and winter, even the dark mornings and the rain. This year I am making more of an effort to try some new makeup out during the 'changeover' from Summer to Autumn. Although some of these are old favourites, there's a couple of newbies in there too - to make up my top 5 autumn lip colours! 

 Mac Shy Girl || Maybelline baby lips 'cherry me' || Kate Moss 101 || Dainty Doll 'storm in a teacup' || Collection deluxe 'prohibition' 


Autumn is typically all about the berry reds and deep shades, but for someone who is a firm believer in neutrals and soft pinks this can be a bit daunting. I've never been one for strong, bold lip colours and I like to stay in my comfort zone when it comes to lipsticks for fear of not being able to 'pull them off'. This little bundle of 5 is a mix of some of my favourite all year round shades and a couple of new additions that are more on the autumn side of things. 

  Mac Shy Girl || Maybelline baby lips 'cherry me' || Kate Moss 101 || Dainty Doll 'storm in a teacup' || Collection deluxe 'prohibition' 


Shy Girl by Mac is my favourite ever nude lipstick, it's very wearable and really suits my skin tone well and most importantly doesn't wash me out or give me those 'concealer' style lips! Rimmel also offer a great dupe for this shade for a fraction of the price! Maybelline baby lips in 'cherry me' is a new addition but one I love. With the weather being colder, tinted lipbalms are great as they provide a bit of moisture and also a subtle wash of colour - cherry me is a deep pink/light red colour which easily finishes a makeup look in a hurry and is great for keeping in your handbag! Rimmel's Kate Moss lipstick in 101 is the pink one of the bunch, however I like that it is 100% matte in colour and is a dusty, muted pink as opposed to a light and girly pink, which makes it perfect for autumn looks! The Dainty Doll lipstick has the cutest name ever 'storm in a teacup' and is also a beautiful nude, which is more on the brown side with an almost purple tone to it - again, this looks lovely on and is quite dark once applied. Finally, the most recent addition and the one that is most out of my comfort zone is Collection's 'prohibition' which is part of their deluxe range. This is a gorgeous deep berry colour, and is a happy medium between a pink and a red. Although this is very different for me, applied lightly its actually really easy to wear! I will eventually get around to wearing this as a full lipstick, once I get used to seeing myself with a full on colour on my lips! 

What are your autumn lipstick staples?

  2. I love your lipstick shades! I dislike when people only wear darker colours in the fall. Yes I do sometimes but my light-pink lip stays all year round :)
