I think I’ve probably said it 10 times already this week, but I friggin’ love autumn! Blogger cliche I know, but I just adore the colours in my wardrobe, the colours in nature and of course, the colours on my lips! Being able to comfortably rock a darker lip again is just bliss. With that being said, I thought I’d put together a little round of my favourite autumnal lipsticks!
Let’s start off with the bargain lippy shall we? This first lip product is in fact a velvet matte lip crayon from Primark’s PS… Beauty range! The shade is called wine, which is appropriate seeing as it’s a beautifully rich wine red colour. I find this lip crayon super easy to apply and soft on the lips. After a couple of hours, it does feel a little drying but the colour does last for a good couple hours before it begins to fade! I do find that it does bleed a little but nothing you can’t sort out with 60 seconds and a cotton bud. You can pick this up from Primark for just £2!
Rimmel’s Kate Moss Lasting Finish lipstick in 107 is a bloggers holy grail drugstore lipstick. Maybe this is down to Miss. Zoella herself claiming it as her all time favourite drugstore lippy, but personally, since I first swatched this on my hand in Boots three years ago, it’s been a firm autumn staple since! Another wine red that I think would suit anyone! I find the staying power of this lipstick pretty long and it’s easy to reapply over your lips once it’s faded. You can pick this up in Boots and Superdrug now for £5.49.
Possibly my favourite lipstick ever is the Elizabeth Arden moisturing lipstick in Ultra Violet. If you’ve yet to try this baby out, get to it! A much more pureply/plumy shade in comparison to the other two shades, I find this lipstick a lot more adventurous, check me out. Probably the best staying power of the three and it doesn’t dry my lips out at all! Available in boots now for £21.

These next two products are from a firm favourite brand of mine, Makeup Revolution! If you haven’t yet heard of them, where have you been? Did I mention, they’re 100% cruelty-free? Another couple rich plum shades to add to my growing collection! The first of the two is a lipstick that I actually won in a giveaway around this time last year and I’ve loved it ever since. Super smooth and easy to apply, another lippy that I don’t find drying at all! I can’t personally compare, but it’s said to be a slightly lighter dupe of MAC’s Rebel, but the best part of it all is that it’s only £1!
Dare to go darker? This next lip product is a super deep purple matte lip lacquer that I picked up in a Makeup Revolution Salvation Lip set last Christmas! It didn’t come with a shade name or number but from trawling the Superdrug website for what seems like forever, the closest single tube shade you can purchase is their lip lacquer in Vamp! I find this one has super duper lasting power, probably linked to the fact that it’s a matte lacquer, but I do find that it can be quite drying. This is probably one of the darkest shades that I own that I like to wear regularly! What do you think of this one?
Another brand that are a fave of mine, especially for lip products, are Collection! In particular, their Gothic Glam range, which I believe is no longer available in store but I did find some amazon links(above) if you still wanna grab a hold of them! The first shade is Seduction which first made it’s appearance on the blog back in the summer of 2014! Safe to say that this is a firm fave of mine! It’s fairly similar in colour to Primark’s Wine shade but this lipstick is much more creamy in consistency, me gusta. All of the Collection lipsticks have amazing staying power and are all super duper pigmented on the lips!
Revenge is a slightly darker berry shade from the Gothic Glam collection. I’ve often transitioned from Seduction in the daytime to Revenge for the evening! Again, a lovely consistency and flawless staying power!
I actually wrote up a full review on Collection’s Aubergine Kiss back in October 2015, which you can find right here. I’d put Aubergine Kiss in between Seduction and Revenge for “deepness”(is this a word, oops?) of shade. I find deep berry shades really complimentary to my pale skin and light eyes, although I think a great berry tone can rock up anyone’s look! You can grab Aubergine Kiss and plenty of other lush shades from Collection’s Lasting Colour selection at Boots right now for just £2.99 each!
So there we have it, my favourite autumnal lipsticks! Do you love any of these shades too? Which is your favourite autumn lippy? Let me now below!
