Alas, the beautiful fall season is upon us and although I will wear any shade of lipstick in any season, there are a few shades that I particularly gravitate towards when the weather gets a little cooler! I’m going to share with you some of my faves!
You can never go wrong in any season with a nude lip. There are two very similar shades that I like to wear particularly in the fall
Lolita- (Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick): A nude matte lipstick with pinkish-purple undertones. I pair it with Mac’s Chestnut lipliner. This product is extremely long lasting which is why I love it so much! One application can literally last you hours!
Whirl-( MAC) A matte finish dirty rose shade. I love it for the days when I just need a quick wash of colour on my lips, not necessarily all day wear. I also pair it with Mac’s Chestnut lipliner.
The next shade I want to talk about is also from MAC. It’s not new to the Collection, but its new to my Mac collection 🙂 . It’s a shade called Antique Velvet. This is described as a intense brown, and that it is! I had been searching for a shade like this for such a long time! Paired with a brown lipliner, this is a perfect fall shade that transitions well from day wear to evening play!
Next up, I’ll return to the Kat Von D line. The shade Vampira is literally one of my favourite lipstick products of all time! There was a point in time where this was sold out in every Sephora and online! When I finally got my hands on it I was not disappointed! This is a deep burgundy colour with red and brown undertones! I really love this for the evening! Paired with a smoky eye, its amazing! Run out and get your hands on it as soon as you can!!!
A very similar shade to Vampira is the shade, LAX from Colourpop. GUYS…. this is new to me. I had many great things about this shade and had seen it used in many a YouTube makeup tutorial. I finally gave in and ordered it and honestly its on trend to be one of my favourite lipsticks of all time! A warm reddish brown that is perfect for a night on the town. I have even worn this in the day with a simple black liner and a light coat of mascara! Amazing!
Finally, the fall wouldn’t be complete without a few dark vampy purple shades.
Chianti from the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick line– A deep plum shade perfect for a night on the town. If you are looking for a shade that will compliment a super dramatic look, try this one out! I also love MAC’s Smoked Purple which essentially a dupe for Chianti. I pair both with MAC’s Nightmoth lipliner for optimal precision!
Finally, I’ll leave you with a perfect reddish plum shade for everyday wear. It’s the shade I usually reach for when I’m heading to work. Simple and understated, yet still noticeable. This shade also comes from the Kat Von D line and it’s called Exorcism ( creepy name but beautiful shade!)
So that’s what I’m wearing this fall! What are you wearing? Anything not on here that must try? Let me know!
Till next time,
P.S you can never go wrong in any season with a classic red lip. I am particularly loving Beso by Stila right now! 🙂
