I've always loved lipstick and over the past six months or so I've really developed an addiction to liquid lipstick - to the point where I had to give myself a break during the summer months and opt for something a little more creamy and glossy on the lips - I even shared my previous favourite liquid lipsticks. However with autumn fast approaching I'm back into the old habit of rocking a matte liquid lip, and I wanted to share with you my autumn liquid lipstick lowdown.
Autumn is the perfect time to embrace berry and brown hues as well as mauve nudes, and the latest addition to my collection is the Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kit in Kristen. The shade is stunning - a warm berry with brown undertones, and this applies very smoothly and easily. As the texture is on the thinner side this applies lightly onto the lips without any need to apply more than one layer. Once settled this doesn't go patchy or dry, instead this lasts incredibly well throughout the day to the point where you don't realise you are wearing a liquid lipstick. Admittedly probably one of my favourite shades from Kylie's ever expanding range!
The berry lovin' continues with the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Aria, described as a magenta plum, this is hands down one of my favourite berry hues! From the moment you apply this it's a liquid lipstick match made in heaven, the formula definitely lives up to its name as it's incredibly long lasting, and glides onto the lips with such ease with only the need for one layer. The shade is opaque and doesn't bleed throughout the day, which is worth its weight in gold when it comes to darker lip shades - I'm sure we've all been there, it's a nightmare and never a good look to be sporting.
One of my favourite liquid lipstick formulas comes in the form of the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks, the shade range is so impressive and the formula is even better! A forgotten favourite - until last week - is Lolita II, a stunning terracotta nude with orange/brown undertones. If you're a fan of the 90s trend than this is definitely one for you! A second autumn favourite comes in the form of Double Dare, described as a cocoa blush, this applies on the lips as a beautiful muted mauve pink with warm undertones. Both shades are so opaque and glide onto the lips with ease, and once dried you don't have to worry about your lips ever feeling dry, nor do they crack or flake. The formula is so long lasting and both shades do not budge, Lolita II survived a three course meal and cocktails without any flakes or fading! Keep your eyes peeled on Tuesday for the Debenhams launch!
The NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams will always hold a special place in my heart, again they have an incredible range of shades that it would be impossible to not own at least five! A new addition to the range is Rome, a medium nude with red undertones, this is like nothing I own in my collection - it's like a brick red with mauve undertones - and once applied to the lips is so stunning and perfect for everyday wear without being too bold. As much as I love darker shades for the autumn, I still don't think you can beat a good nude, and Stockholm doesn't disappoint. Described as a mid-tone beige pink this is a stunning everyday nude with brown undertones, that doesn't wash out my complexion. The formula of these is just amazing, they are so lightweight to apply and don't dry out the lips throughout the day, and there's just one thing I love more about these - they don't break the bank.
I won't leave the NYX lovin' just there as a new favourite of mine, is the NYX Lingerie Liquid Lipstick in Ruffle Trim. This is such a stunning transitional shade, that's pink enough for those holding on to the last days of summer yet the muted brown undertones make it the perfect everyday autumn lip. I won't go into too much detail as I did a review on the collection here, but the formula is amaze-balls, this stuff just does not budge throughout the day, throw drink, food even tissue at your lips and this ain't budging I guarantee - hard scrubbing is required! This is quickly becoming my go-to work lip, and I can see myself getting a lot of wear out of this during the autumn months.
An autumn liquid lipstick post would not be complete with the Anastasia Liquid Lipstick in Dusty Rose, a cult favourite with good reason! Thank goodness this was re-released as it meant I was able to get my hands on it, once applied this leaves the lips with a stunning muted rose pink, which is just so flattering - and would suit everyone! The formula doesn't let this down either, the texture is very mousse-y and with one swipe of the wand and you're good to go for the day, and it's one less thing to carry in your bag because you won't need a touchup.
I'd love to know what are you're go to liquid lipsticks for the autumn?
