MY GO-TO AUTUMN LIPSTICKS + SWATCHES (NO BERRY TONES INVOLVED)

15 November 2016


Although berry lips are always big news in autumn, I have recently been more drawn towards my nude-pink lip products. I've already spoken about my current favourite base productsface products and eye makeup products that I have been enjoying this autumn - and today I'll be sharing my favourite autumn lipsticks (sans all-things-berry!)

L-R: MAC 'Brave', Lancome 'Piece of Cake', Charlotte Tilbury 'Amazing Grace'
MAC Brave was one of the most widely spoken-about MAC lipsticks early last year due to it apparently being the lipstick that Kylie Jenner wore. Although I'm not a massive fan of the Kardashians myself, I can totally understand why MAC Brave was such a popular lipstick. It's the perfect pink-mauve-nude shade and is pretty much universally flattering on all skin tones. MAC Brave is my go-to lipstick whenever I'm in a rush and want to wear something that I know will look good with any makeup look - during the day or at night. It's got a semi-matte finish which lasts pretty well on the lips throughout the day. Read my full review here.

The Lancome Juicy Shakers are essentially nourishing lip oils with added pigment. 'Piece of Cake' is a beautiful rosy-pink shade, which is perfect for adding a pink tint to the lips. As this is sheer, it is perfect for popping into your handbag and applying on-the-go. Also, as this is a moisturising lip oil it's perfect if (like me) you tend to suffer from dry lips when the weather gets colder. This contains lots of skin-loving ingredients such as almond oil, omega 3 and cranberry oil to help you on your way to super soft lips!

I've definitely saved the best one for last as the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipstick in 'Amazing Grace' is definitely one of my favourite lipsticks which I have in my makeup collection. This might be quite pricey at £23, but it is so worth the price! This is the perfect bright-but-not-too-bright nude-pink shade that is great for when you want to add a pop of colour to your makeup without going OTT.  Also, the formula is just spot-on. It's matte but not drying and it lasts for absolutely ages! See what this looks like on me and check out my full review here.
