I know Autumn makeup often features a dark, berry lip! I love the way this looks, but I tend to wear something much more wearable day-to-day. In this little guide, I’ve put together my 3 favourite Autumn lipsticks – a nude colour, a brown-tone and a pink shade!
I’ve already written up a full review of this liquid lipstick, but I have to talk about it again! The colour’ Childstar’ is just beautiful. An ever-so-slightly-purple-toned pink nude shade, it honestly pairs with any makeup look. I’ve worn this one with just some mascara, as well as with a full face of makeup. In that sense, it is a really safe shade. If you’ve gone for seasonal, gold eyeshadow, this is a perfect colour to pop on.
As liquid lipsticks go, this is one of the best (along with the next choice) that I’ve ever tried. It takes slightly longer to dry, meaning you have time to apply it evenly before it begins to set. It stays in place with a matte finish all day – I usually use a lipbalm whilst doing my skincare to make sure that it doesn’t look drying, and I’m good to go.
This is such a beautiful lipstick. A unique shade, ‘Iced Mocha’ is a neutral-cool toned brown. The look of this lipstick depends on your skin tone ranging from a deep brown to a darker nude shade, making it such a universal lipstick. Againt my natural, very pale skin tone, this is a striking brown colour. Every time I’ve worn this, someone has complimented me on it! I like to pick this one around October-November time as the depth makes it feel vampy without a hint of red tone in sight.
Still wearable, I love to wear this one paired with really full lashes and smokey brown liner. The Hydra Matte Liquid Lipstick range is one of my favourite that I always return to for new colours. They are so comfortable to wear, long-lasting and also happen to smell amazing. This, of course, gets an extra thumbs up from me!
Kiko Intensley Lavish Lipstick in 01
I know I said no berry shades – this is the closest thing to a vampy shade in this selection. The limted edition collection from last year at Kiko really stood out to me, and this lipstick has remained a favourite. If you are worried that berry tones don’t suit you, try a deeper pink shade.
For me, this sort of colour is the perfect half way mark. Too dark to be a nude shade, but too light to be a vampy, berry colour. Not a matte shade, but a satin finish that is super easy to wear. My only gripe with non-matte lipsticks is that they do tend to slip around a little more, but the lovely moisturising qualities outweigh this.
