Top 5 Autumn/Winter Lipsticks

autumn-lipsticks2

I don’t know about you, but Autumn is my favourite season. I love Autumn’s fashion (even though, I’m still learning how to layer outfits), makeup looks, change in weather, and everything else really. Even though in Malta, it still feels like Summer – it literally only rained once, and we’re sometimes having hotter days than in Summer – I still try to find any excuse to transition into the Autumn season.

Today, I’ll be sharing with you my favourite Autumn/Winter lipsticks. I must admit, the majority are red, but I can’t help it! In fact, that is why I merged the two seasons together because in Winter all I wear is either lip balm, or a red lip.

Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Laquer in Celestial – €7.79

These lip laquers from Rimmel are just amazing. They glide so smoothly, and their colour pay-off is ridiculous! Even though I like nude lips, I don’t find that it soothes me that much, so this (and another lipstick I’ll be showing you) is the next best thing. I absolutely love this!

Rimmel London Kate Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick in 107 – €7.14

This lipstick is probably my most worn lipsticks of all time! I just love it! The 107 has been such a hit in the beauty community – the winter season would not go by without someone raving about it. Not only is it a deep red, but it applies as a matte satin finish which is just gorgeous – this means that it will last more than your regular lipstick (most mattes last longer) without drying your lips out. I currently have super dry lips because of the medication I’m taking, and this feels so good on my lips. Can’t recommend it enough!

Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Colour Moisturising Lipstick in Power Red – €22.10

This gorgeous baby is the only high-end lipstick I own – and I absolutely love it! Unlike the Rimmel 107, it’s a creamy true red colour and has a gorgeous shine to it. Apart from the gold packaging being so luxurious and classy, the colour pay-off is outstanding – I went out to eat and after stuffing myself with food, it was still there on my lips! A bit pricey, I know – but you can always wait for a feelunique.com offer! πŸ˜‰

The Body Shop ColourGlide Shine Lip Colour in 11 – Rare Coral

As I previously said, I’m not really a nude person as I feel that most nudes wash me out, but I don’t mind this one. It is actually the only nude I own and did get it as a gift – If I had to choose, I think I’d rather go for a nude with more pink-bluish undertones. This is mainly because I have yellow undertones to my warm-neutral skin, and therefore, products that have orange undertones can make me look even more yellow/orange. Nonetheless, I don’t mind this – it’s very creamy, smooth and hydrating. I only wore this a couple of times when I had heavier eye-makeup, and I liked the way it looked on me. This means I need to invest in some more nude lipsticks!

NYX Round Lipstick inΒ Black Cherry (LSS575) – €5

This creamy lipstick is in a class of it’s own. I just love the intensity and colour pay-off this lipstick gives! Even though it is a very dark vampy red, it has brown and purple undertones to it that make it so wintery. Just like the Rimmel 107, it does not dry your lips out, being it is matte. Another thing I love about this product is that you can determine how dark your lips are going to be based on preference – you can really build this product up. Love it!
