Top 5 Autumn Lipstick Picks

I can't be the only one who loves being able to bring out the autumn lipsticks? Plum purples, cherry reds and post-box reds are the perfect shades for A/W and will set you up to have all the festive lips going on at Christmas. (Yep, I said it. the C word. In October. Can't wait.)

Of course, you can wear these shades all year round, but these are my favourites ones to whip out at this time of year, so I though I'd share them with you. They're all available in Boots and Superdrug and none are over £7!


Starting with my absolute go-to signature red lip. L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Exclusive Reds in Blake. Blake Lively is my ultimate girl crush, so I'd of probably bought this lipstick even if it had been bright green, but it's not, it's the most beautiful post-box, matte red you'll ever see. Think MAC's Ruby Woo but waaay less drying on your lips - which in the winter months, especially, is a very good thing! I use a red lip pencil KIKO (similar)  to line my lips for a really precise and sharp outline. It has crazy staying power, but transfers easily and will end up all over your face if you scoff down a burger (tried and tested!) Although this is an Autumn lipstick picks video, I will just say this is THE Christmas red lip that you need in your life! 


I wasn't too sure if I wanted to jump on the matte liquid lipsticks bandwagon if I'm honest - I'm always worried about them being far too drying and making my lips sore or just looking there's not an ounce of moisture on my face. But with a couple of boots points to spare I picked up this NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Cannes, a gorgeous dusky, rosy pink and I was pleasantly surprised! They're not drying at all, very creamy and have great staying power.


If Zoella, the Queen of the Christmas red lip, says Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in 107 is her to-go red lipstick, then it's one I had to try. A deep red with a slight plummy undertone, it's the perfect 'starter' lipstick if you're just starting to wear darker colours but you're not quite ready for browny/purple tones! It's matte, but not drying.


As I said before I was hesitant to pick these up, but I was such a fan that I picked up another. This NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen is a deep purple/plum with a slight hint of red. It's probably the most daring lipstick I own, but I feel so confident wearing it. The doe foot applicator means you can insure all the edges are sharp and the staying power is amazing, which is a must when it's dark colour. 


Turns out this is the only lipstick that isn't matte in this Autumn picks, I suppose I prefer matte textures when I'm going for a bold colour. This one, however, is a favourite. The Collection Deluxe Lipstick in Prohibition is a cherry red, with a slight undertone of dark pink. It applies like a dream and isn't too glossy, but leaves a nice sheen on the lips and stays super creamy. 


So those are my Top 5 Autumn Lipsticks! What are your favourites? (I'm forever on the hunt for more... You can never have too many!)
