Hey guys. Sorry for the lack of posts recently. I've just been busy with work, University, my birthday and other things, that I haven't had a chance to write as many posts as I would have liked to. And I really didn't want to write a crappy, rushed post.
Sticking to the theme of Autumn, I've decided to do a post on my favourite Autumnal lipsticks this year. As you can probably tell, they are all quite dark, vampy shades. I am a lover of dark Berry shades of lipstick all year round anyway but it seems that everyone has gone mad this Autumn, especially for these types of lipsticks as they fit in with the current colour trends that are so popular at the moment. (E.g. Burgundy/Wine shades).
My favourites are:
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in, 'Black Cherry' which is quite a recent buy of mine. I actually bought it in the Summer but have only just started using it. It's the darkest of my four favourites and I picked this up especially because I wanted a dark Brown type of lipstick. It is quite pigmented but it's no where near as pigmented as, MAC, 'Rebel' which I love. I also think this shade is a bit hard to pull off and sometimes makes me look a bit washed out but with the right outfit and make-up it can look stunning on anyone!
MAC Satin Finish Lipstick in, 'Rebel' is probably my favourite lipstick, of all time. That's how much I love it. I wear it all year round (not on a daily basis - usually on a night out) and just fall in love with it every time I go to apply it. I wanted this so bad and it was sold out everywhere and after searching high and low for it for some time I finally got my hands on it around January this year. It's quite similar to, 'Black Cherry' but it's a lot more wearable and has pinky-purple undertones rather than Brown undertones. It's highly pigmented and lasts ALL DAY. It's actually so long lasting and even when I wear this all night and take it off once I get in, it's so hard to get off and in the morning I can still see a Pink stain on my lips! I just love this lipstick, I have no negatives. I wear this with, MAC, 'Current' Lip pencil.
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in, 'Spiced Brandy' is another recent buy. It's quite different from any other shade I own and it's more Red compared to the other three lipsticks I've mentioned. It also has gold flecks/shimmer which are a nice subtle touch and isn't too OTT. I think it's a perfect shade for the Christmas season coming up. The colour isn't too strong on the lips either and it has a slight glossy feel. It's nice if you want a change from a typical Red lip and are scared of wearing something as dark as, 'Black Cherry'.
Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in, 'Electric Plum' is the lipstick which I've had for the longest - when I was first trying out darker shades of lipstick. The good thing with this lipstick is although it looks quite dark, once applied, it's quite a soft shade of plum which has a glossy finish. This lipstick isn't as long lasting as the others, probably because of the glossy feel but it doesn't dry yours lips out whatsoever. This is great for anyone who is nervous about trying out the darker Berry/Vampy colours on the lips but still want to try it out. It's also the cheapest of my favourites mentioned here, so if you don't like it, it's not the end of the world! :)
