I have to admit, I am one to stay in my comfort zone when it comes to lip shades. I have my staple pinky nude toned shades which I stick to and repurchase again and again. In a recent bid to come out of my comfort zone, I have been experimenting with darker autumnal shades. For some people, these shades won’t be that experimental, but I feel this could be of help to those of us who struggle to wear those autumnal shades with a brown tone, red tone and pink toned option.
The Brown Autumn Lip
First up is what I would say is the easiest to wear out of the shades I have picked up recently. It’s NYX ‘Rome’ which I spoke about in my September Favourites. This is a great one for an everyday autumn lip shade. It is so comfortable on the lips and doesn’t take much effort to apply which I love for everyday.
The Red Autumn Lip
Next up is ‘Old Hollywood’ from Sleek. This is a colour which I would never have worn this time last year. It is a very deep red colour and it definitely looks as though it’ll come out a lot darker than it does when in the packaging. I have worn this during the day with a burgundy cord skirt, white top, tights and black ankle boots and it really did finish the autumnal look off! Part of me wishes I’d been braver sooner as this is now one of my favorite lip colours!
The Pink Autumn Lip
And finally, I couldn’t do this post without including a pink nude colour! This is ‘Bang Bang’ a deep pink nude from Marc Jacobs. This is a darker nude than I would usually go for and is therefore a great small step into darker nudes for Autumn! This is slightly different to the others as it is a lipstick rather than a lip stain. This has longevity on the lips and doesn’t dry them out. This colour is currently part of the Sephora Birthday gift, so if your birthday is in the next few months you’re in luck!
I’m hoping to branch out further over the coming months in the lip colour world, so look out for a Christmas Lip colour post! What lip products have you been loving this Autumn?
