Autumn is my favourite seasons for makeup. There's an even better excuse for almost black lipstick and deep burgundy eyes which I am always doing. When chatting to one of my besties, Justine Pendrill another fellow blogger, we decided to collaborate and hunt down our top 5 lipsticks for this season. These were all easy no-brainers for me and I was quick to choose the top 5 that will be gracing my lips most of this season. Take a look blow at my top 5 lipsticks and don't forget to let me know your favourites in the comments below and check out Justine's post here.
OCC BLACK METAL DALIAH - Not only am I in love with the name, look at that purple. If that doesn't scream autumn, I'm not sure what does. I picked this up from Selfridges when I went to London with Justine for a blogging event. This is from the Moderncraft collection which has a few more other interesting shades. I can't seem to find this particular shade online so if you pop into Selfridges have a look at what OCC have to offer, as they have loads of beautiful shades that you can mix to find the perfect shade for you. The consistency isn't like anything else I've tried. It's very thick and pigmented, meaning you don't need a lot. This is titles as a matte, but unless you're applying a extremely thin amount it'll be more of a gloss. I really love this shade and it stays put all day - one of my faves for this season! These retail for around £13.
YSL ROUGE VOLUMPTE FORBIDDEN BURGUNDY - This beautiful autumn favourite is believed to be discontinued. However I had to put this into my top favourites as it really is perfect for autumn. This pretty deep burgundy has a creamy consistency so it glides effortlessly on the lips. For a rather expensive lipstick (around £26) this doesn't stay as well on the lips as I'd like. Because it's so creamy it does tend to slip and need retouching, but I still don't hate it for it. It's just such a beautiful colour that I forgive it's high price and occasional touch ups.
FASHION FAIR INTENSE COLOUR LIPSTICK IN RAGE* - I had to do a close up because of that metallic shimmer. I mean how beautiful is that? This is such a perfect red with a surprise of glitter which I really love. The glitter isn't grainy and you can't feel it on the lips. It just seems to glide on the lips beautifully. It stays put all day and the shimmer just adds and extra special touch to the usual red lip. This is perfect not just autumn, but Christmas too! If you're on the hunt for a slighty different red, go for this one. Fashion Fair specializes in skin for deep skin tones, but there's so much for everyone! You can get this from Debenhams here for £14.
MAC LIPSTICK IN PARAMOUNT - This narrowly missed my 5 Mac lipsticks which you can read here so it had to be in my top 5 autumn faves! This is the perfect brown for autumn I think as it almost leans on a burnt orange colour. It's not exactly a nude shade, but it's a great alternative if you're wanting to go deeper for autumn. It's a matte finish like the majority of my Mac lipsticks so it stays put for most of the day, so I can trust that I don't have to hunt for the mirror deep in my bag every hour. It's easy to apply too, even without a brush. Pick this up from your local Mac or online here for £15.50.
B. VIBRANT LIP AND CHEEK COLOUR IN GOJI* - Not only is it a universal lip and cheek colour - it's vegan too! I'm a huge lover of rose coloured lipstick and this is no expection. This is the perfect rose colour, and is great to pair with dark eyes. It adds a pretty yet subtle flush of colour on the cheeks once blended in giving a natural healthy glow. It's so creamy and goes on the lips really well and stays put too. I can't explain how much I love this shade. It's an all year round colour which makes me love it even more. If you're a pale princess like me, this is a must have. It's not too much of a bright lipstick and will compliment your skin beautifully. You can get this from Superdrug online for £3.99 at the moment from the usual £7.99 which you can get here.
