My top 3 lippies for Autumn

It's offically October which means I can fully dive into all the autumnal comforts of thick blankets, snuggly jumpers, salted caramel hot chocolates, dark nails and of course deeper lippies. 

I know makeup has no rules and you can wear whatever you want, whenever you want but I find it quite difficult to enjoy wearing the more deeper tones in Summer/Spring. I prefer to leave those looks until the Autumn/Winter months, but I do have 1 exception which I will talk about. 

In todays post I will be sharing some of my favourites that I always go back to at this time of year which tends to be mauves and reds. I will be talking about how well they last, what finishes they are and swatches on my lips and on my arm so you can really see the colours well on pale skin. 

First on the list is my all time favourite lipstick EVER, and that is the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipstick in the shade Bond Girl. This is the only lipstick where I would bend my rules and wear all year round! I've spoke about this so many times here on my blog so I apologise for repeating!

CT matte lipsticks have the best formula for me with MAC coming close second but I find her lippies to be so comfortable and not drying on the lips at all but a friend of mine says they dry her lips alot so it is a personal preference with these matte revolutions. 

Bond Girl is a gorgeous muted berry shade, it is so flattering on me and I can wear it during the day for work if applied lightly or at night to glam up a look with it being more layered. By far my go to shade for the colder months (every month lets be real) and it most likely will stay that way for a long time to come. 

A repurchase is needed ASAP, I've used it so much it's nearly gone. It's THAT good. 

Next up is a lipstick that I have had in my collection for years now, also the first MAC lipstick I ever purchased and still it's one of my favourite vampy reds to wear when I'm feeling abit fancy and that is the MAC Viva Glam 1

A deep matte red that was created in 1994, the year I was born so it is 23 years old, to raise funds for HIV/AIDS. I've seen soo many people wearing this and it honestly looks flattering on each and every one of them. 

Lasts a great amount of time on the lips, doesn't feel overly dry but I do prefer to wear a EOS lipbalm underneath just to make it feel more comfortable but that is a personal thing. Has that typical MAC vanilla scent that we all love, even years on mine still has that sweet scent.

Sometimes when it is really cold and gloomy outside I love to whack on a deep red to really stand out and brighten up my day along with simple makeup and black eyeliner so this MAC shade is always what I gravitate to first.  Can't go wrong with this one & I can't wait to start wearing it again, a huge staple in my collection. 

You can still get your hands on this at a number of retailers like Debenhams, John Lewis, Look Fantastic along with some other places. 

Third on my list of favourites is a liquid lipstick collaboration with an American brand, Ofra and a Youtuber I watch, Manny MUA. Manny created 3 liquid lip shades with Ofra, I purchased the whole set but I fell head over heals for the shade Charmed which is a really nice mauve pink but looks a little more light against my pale skin tone compared to swatches, it also looks quite similar to CT Bond Girl in photos but in person it's more deep compared to Bond Girl. 

I purchased the set directly from the Ofra USA site in May 2016 but since then they are now available at Beauty Bay! They often have sales on their items aswell so I would deffo recommend taking a look to see what else they have to offer, they have many different liquid lipsticks to offer too.

Ofra liquid lipsticks by far has the best formula I have tried in terms of a liquid, usually I'm not much of a fan because I find them too dry but these are really nice. 

They are moussey, pigmented and comfortable. By far the most long wearing on my lips without cracking or flaking away with the gorgeous scent of cake too. I have done a whole review on the set, if you would like to give it a read, you can do here.

Hope you enjoyed this post, let me know what your favourite Autumnal lip shades are so I can take a look at some new options to try :D
