With the climate change I think it’s safe to say that we’re all excited to change up the clothes in our wardrobes and also our makeup. Personally I’ve been wearing nothing but dark reds and dark purples on my lips, but I know that not everyone feels comfortable, or likes wearing such bold, statement colours. So for today’s post I rounded up some of my favourite lipsticks that are just right for this time of year, they still have an autumnal vibe to them without being too in your face.

MAC Velvet Teddy. This one is such a classic, I feel like I’ve seen it on every blog I’ve read lately, and rightfully so. It’s such a gorgeous shade to use everyday, and will go with whatever makeup look you want to wear. I feel like this colour will suit loads of skin tones, it’s a deep beige with a cinnamon undertone to it. 

The next one is probably the darkest of the lineup, but still very wearable if you don’t want to go all out. It’s the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in the shade Bond Girl. How cool is the name? It’s a muted berry shade, so perfect for those who want to venture into the darker lipsticks, but still don’t have the confidence to go all out. And don’t let the word ‘matte’ put you off, it’s very hydrating and doesn’t feel drying on the lips at all.
Cosmo by MAC was my most used lipstick a couple of years ago. I think it deserve so much more hype, I feel like it’s really underrated! It’s a pink with a hint of brown, the colour is one of those that you can just whack on, goes with everything, is super comfortable and creamy, ugh, it’s the best. You should definitely swatch this next time you’re near a MAC counter, I promise you’ll be impressed.

Then we have Bahama by Nars, of course I had to have one of the Velvet Matte Lip Pencils here, they’re by far my favourite lipsticks ever. I thought I lost this lipstick a couple of weeks ago and I was so gutted, I can’t even tell you, but I found it in my going out bag the other day, phew! It’s a hard shade to describe, it’s a lilac/purply shade with lots of brown in it. I love that it’s such a statement colour without being too bold or over the top. 

And last but not least, Burberry Kisses Lipstick in shade n77 Blush. This is a dusty rose shade, the formula is super moisturising and it’s one of those that you don’t really need a mirror to apply. The colour can be built up to a more intense shade, but if you prefer to have just a wash of colour, one coat will be enough. I feel like this shade is so sophisticated, it makes you look like you have your shizz together.

What are some of your favourite ‘not so bold’ Autumn lipsticks?

  1. Velvet Teddy definitely looks like a shade I'd want to wear everyday! I'm actually trying to be a bit adventurous this season with a new MAC lipstick palette I received during NYFW. It's a 24 color MAC kit with the most gorgeous shade of purplish-gray. I rocked it out a few times and fell in LOVE!
