Hi lovelies! Miss me? :) Apologies for my week or so of no posts, after blogging every single day of October, I was definitely in need of a rest. I've had this horrid flu-cold-chest infection thing for over a month now. Oh the joys of spoonie life! Anyone else's body completely rejecting Autumn? It sucks because it's my favourite season and I want to be outside with my camera fully immersing myself in the wonders that this time of year brings. Since I can't enjoy Autumn outdoors right now, I thought I'd embrace Autumn here on my blog! For my first seasonal-themed post of November, I wanted to share with you all my go-to Autumnal lipstick shades. Enjoy!
One of the many many reasons that Autumn is, to me, the best season of the year is the colours associated with it. I love all of the rusts, browns, reds and berry tones, that emulate the shades we see throughout nature right now. Seeing these colours make me instantly think of forests covered in bright leaves, conkers and acorns settled around on the ground, bushes full of wild blackberries and hawthorn berries, the colour of the earth, the soil and the layer of crisp leaves coating it. So much beauty! It's lovely that Autumn fashion and beauty products utilise and honor these colours; I love being able to wear them and show them off with pride.
I have always preferred darker colours and the majority of my wardrobe consists of black clothing, so I like to wear lipstick shades that are not too bold and eye-catching, but that brighten up my look and just give a little colour to my outfit. Basically, all of the popular Autumn shades are my go-to all year round, but I thought this was the perfect time to post about them, to give you some ideas of shades that you might like to wear. I've chosen four lipsticks that are some of my favourite in my collection, but I definitely want to add more so if you have any favourite Autumn shades, please leave your recommendations in the comments :)
• Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick in 'Starry-Eyed' (128)
• Maybelline Color Sensational Matte Lipstick in 'Divine Wine' (975)
• Maybelline Color Sensational in 'Plum Passion' (365)
• Dose of Colors Liquid Matte Lipstick in 'Berry Me'
Rimmel London's 'Starry-Eyed' Lipstick
This gorgeous shade is my second favourite for this time of year. It's a brown tone with a hint of red, making it very similar to maroon. I really like maroon, so it's no surprise that this is my go-to lipstick for Autumn. It's got a great pigment and whenever I wear it for a night out, it stays on for most of the night, which is fabulous. It's creamy texture makes it easy to apply. I think that it's a great colour to wear both during the day and for evenings out, and it goes with almost every Autumn outfit. Here's what it looks like on...
Maybelline's 'Divine Wine' Lipstick
This lipstick is a pretty burgundy shade, a combination of red with undertones of rich browns. It's very similar in colour to my 'Starry-Eyed' lipstick but it's the red hue of it that makes it stand out on it's own. Although I love red lipstick, I am also a person riddled with social anxiety and going out with a bold red lip is still a challenge for me, so having a darker shade of lipstick that's colour is similar to the shades I love to wear but with that red 'pop' to it (if that makes sense, haha) is perfect. I like to wear this shade if I'm wanting something a little more fancy :)
Maybelline's 'Plum Passion' Lipstick
This lipstick is different to my other Autumnal favourites, it's a lot brighter and has a more glamorous feel to it. It's one of those shades that I think is suited for both Summer and Autumn. It's purple with a pink tint, and reminds me of flowers, specifically fuschias. It definitely goes well with black clothing, adding subtle and pretty colour to your overall outfit. It's a shame that it comes off quite easily after a few drinks, however this lipstick has such an awesome scent!
Dose of Colors' 'Berry Me' Lipstick
This is the latest lipstick that I've added to my collection that's perfect for this season! This and two others that I recently purchased were my first ever liquid lipsticks and I really love them. They are so pigmented and long-lasting, and they dry matte and look fantastic. Check out my Dose of Colors haul here. I was after a vibrant berry shade for this Autumn, and this lipstick has ticked all the boxes. It is darker than my other shades, but that just makes me love it more. The colour reminds me of a mix of blackberries, mulberries and cranberries, the perfect fruity cocktail for this time of year. It's quickly become one of my favourite lipsticks and it's definitely my preferred Autumnal shade now (sorry Starry-Eyed!). It also has a fabulous smell to it.
