Beauty: Autumnal Lip Colours

17 September 2013

From Left to Right: CK - Fusion // Rimmel - Vintage Pink // Sleek - Vamp // Maxfactor - Firefly // MUA - Shade 2 // Rimmel - Kate Moss 107 // 

Dark reds, pinks and purples are the way forward for lips this season and here are AJOE's top six picks to get any beauty lover though the colder weather...

Calvin Klein - Fusion // I've never actually worn this colour but Autumn would be a great Season to start. It's a pinky toned red and although it has a matt texture to it, from swatching it on my lips whilst I type away, it doesn't dry your lips out which is a bonus. 

Rimmel - Vintage Pink // Even the name of this one will make a beauty sucker fall in love with it. Vintage Pink in the bullet looks like a dark, almost brown or lilac but on the lips it's a colour which is great for an everyday make up look as it's not too 'out there' and has a great glossy finish. 

Sleek - Vamp // As the name would suggest this Lipstick by Sleek is a vampy purple and is the darkest colour I own. It is not the best lipstick to apply as it is very matt, therefore I think it works best being applied with a lip brush, I use the Real Techniques Detail Brush to build an intense colour that I am happy with. 

Maxfactor - Firefly // Another name I love for a lipstick. This lipstick is one that glides so effortlessly onto the lips as it has a great moisturising and glossy texture. Although it's a fairly dark shade it's another that looks good for an everyday look.

MUA - Shade 2 // As a more cheaper side of the drugstore collections of lipsticks that are out there this one from MUA at Superdrug is surprisingly a nice texture, it's light and applies to the lips well leaving a slight gloss with the colour. 

Rimmel - Kate Moss 107 // Similar to Fusion by Calvin Klein this has a matt texture but is such a nice dark purple that I think looks great teamed up with a moisturising lip balm underneath so it doesn't look too drying on the lips.

Is there any Autumnal colours that you can suggest this season?
