Autumn is finally upon us, and you know what that means… The fall lipsticks are making a come back. Every year I have a select few that I wear to death, but this year I’m trying out more and more and have come across some shades that have Autumn written all over them. I’ve got it covered from dark berry reds to pinks and nudes, including both drugstore brands and some luxury picks. Yes, I’ve got it all going on this season.
The Berry Shades
If you’re a lover of a dark red lip, every lip pick here will take your fancy. First, we have a classic MAC lipstick in the shade Diva. This is one everyone turns to for a dark berry matte lip as it is the most gorgeous shade, and suits fair to dark skin. If you love this shade but want a drugstore dupe then the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen is the one. It’s the exact same in colour and finish, just the NYX formula is a little more hydrating. For a less intense and brighter cherry shade, the Avon Matte Lipstick in Wild Cherry is perfect. I find this the most wearable, and is a simply stunning cherry shade. These matte lipsticks from Avon are very comfortable and long-lasting, a very similar finish to MAC matte lipsticks.

Lately I’ve been all about pink lipsticks and it was very hard to whittle down my favourites. One that I’ve been wearing a lot of is Kathryn by Anastasia Beverly Hills. This is a matte liquid lipstick in a brown/berry finish, which ultimately mixes to be a deep mauve and is the most gorgeous shade ever. For a similar shade but a little bit more girly and pink is the Make Up Forever Artist Rouge in the shade M102, a little brighter and less matte than Kathryn. If you’re into plum buy generic ventolin shades then this would be for you, is has beautiful warm plum undertones with a super
comfortable and long lasting matte finish. For something a little more luxury and so worth it is the Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in no.40. This is a classic deep pink that is very classy and wearable with a super soft matte velvet finish.

The Nudey Browns
You can never go wrong with a nude or brown, right? This was probably the hardest category, just because nudes are worn all year round, but I did it and found 3 that I find most Fall appropriate. If you love brown shades AND liquid lipsticks like me, then these two are going to be for you. Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte in Iced Mochaand Colour Pop’s Ultra Matte Lip in Chiare two I must say are so truly stunning. Iced Mocha is a true brown shade with cool undertones, however is actually very easy to wear. Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Mattes are very similar in finish to Colour Pop, as they are both extremely matte but hydrating and soft all at the same time. Chi from Colour Pop is a cool-toned nude beige, a little less intense than Iced Mocha and is very opaque. One that crosses categories but is more brown than rose isCharlotte Tilbury’s K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Stoned Rose. This is a true rose-brown shade that suits any skin tone. It’s lightweight formula is so smooth and its colour rich and buildable – so beautiful for this time of year!
