Autumn Lips

Left to right: stoned rose, ibiza nights, magic wand, calypso, saint.

Two of my favourite lip products come from Charlotte Tilbury which is not a surprise as I love her brand. The lipstick which I have chosen is stoned rose, which is a gorgeous warm toned terracotta rose. I love the formula of these as they are creamy, pigmented, and feel comfortable on the lips despite having a semi-matte finish. Every time I take a little trip to one of her counters, I have to resist buying another to add to my collection as these are differently a treat purchase at £24.

I am not a big lip gloss wearer really and this is down to the change in lipsticks formulas. Due to lipsticks now coming in all different forms and finishes these days, and they being so well formulated and long wearing I never really reach for a lip gloss. However, when I want to wear one ibiza nights by Charlotte Tilbury is what I always reach for. It is sheer, shimmering gloss which is ideal for layering over any lipstick no matter what finish it is.

It is no lie that I am a huge fan of Colourpop Cosmetics and magic wand was one of the first liquid lip products I bought from their ultra satin lip line. This shade is a classic mid tone nude, the undertone to the product is more on the orange side of the scale and I really like it for this reason as I own no other product like it. I think this would look great on all different skin tones, as it really is an all round shade to wear throughout all of the seasons.

For me autumn is all about those berry toned shades, and calypso also from Colourpop does not disappoint. This is once again from their ultra satin line which is my absolute favourite from them. It is a semi matte finish which I love as you still end up with the product being matte to the lips, however it contains moisturising emollients so it does not completely dry your lips out and stays comfortable all day long. These are highly pigmented and with one swipe your lips are completely transformed. This is a mid toned rose shade, with some reddish undertones adding the berry element which I love.
I think this is the first LimeCrime lipstick which I have featured on my blog. This is the darkest shade of my autumnal favourite lipsticks in this post. I am not a massive lover of dark shades as I think they wash me out as I have fair skin, but saint is a gorgeous dark purple grape shade. However, with a dark, smokey eye and this on the lips it can create a beautiful combination. This comes from their matte velvetines collection which is a matte liquid lipstick line. Saint definitely has the most matte finish from all of these lipsticks. I have been impressed as this is highly pigmented and once again only needs one swipe across the lips. The only negative to this lipstick is they dry down very matte, and if you have quite dry lips it can be slightly uncomfortable.

What are your favourite lipsticks for Autumn?
