The autumnal lip

As promised in my autumnal eye post, here’s a rundown of my top three lipsticks for cooler weather.

On the top of my list is Silk Naturals vegan lipstick in Sultry. It is a muted berry shade,shade perfect for everyday wear. The colour is fantastic but I also love the formula – creamy and pigmented, it lasts for hours and then leaves behind a flattering stain. Oh and it’s a $5 dupe for Mac’s lipstick in Brick o La! Pretty perfect, eh?

For a more amped up berry shade, I’ve been reaching for another Indie lipstick – Morgana Cryptoria’s lipstick in Speakeasy. This is a deep raspberry colour that looks amazing applied full on, although it can be sheered out for a stained look that is very pretty. I love wearing this one with thick black liner and loads of mascara for an almost goth-like look. My only issue with this is staying power – it lasts just a couple of hours and then seems to disappear completely. Oh well, you win some, you lose some.

Once again, I’ve saved the best for last – Mac’s Rebel lipstick. This is probably one of the lipsticks I’d take with me if I were running out of a burning building or the one I’d want if I were stuck on a deserted island or…you get the drift right? It’s a gorgeous purpley berry shade that looks amazing on me. And on everyone else I’ve seen it on. If you haven’t tried it yet, what on Earth are you waiting for?! Don’t let my description of it scare you off – it is a gorgeous shade with the perfect satin finish and good lasting power. A must have and one I’d repurchase till my dying day!

So it’s evident that I’m all about the berry shades in cooler weather.
