Finally an actual post where I talk about lipsticks?! Since the nights are getting darker and makeup slightly heavier I’ve changed up my go-to lipsticks for darker, more daring colours. I’ve included some of my favourite high end ones and some of my favourite drugstore ones so there’s a mixture of price ranges to choose from. I have to start by saying I have been LIVING in the Dior one since my mum gave it to me. It’s been my favourite for college and everyday use. They are all pretty similar colours but can definitely transform your look once they’re on, most are long lasting too but without further ado let’s jump straight into my top 5 lipsticks for this Autumn.
Dior Addict Stellar Shine
Starting with my favourite: The Dior Addict Stellar Shine in the shade 535 ‘CD-Dream’. I originally brought this for my mum but she didn’t like the shine so I was not complaining when she asked if I wanted it instead. This is probably the most moisturizing lipstick I own and I would 100% look into buying different shades from the collection but I love this shade for the Autumn season. It’s described on the website as ‘Pink Taupe’ and I couldn’t put it in a better way. I have to admit although I love it, it definitely does not last 8 hours like it claims to do. I would say it lasts an hour at max but I find that normal for any lipstick so I don’t really mind the regular re-applying.
I find the moisturization perfect for the Autumn time because our lips tend to get a lot dryer. The shade goes well with Autumnal fashion and is definitely a colour you can get away with no matter the occasion. The packaging is cute, and the product is definitely comfortable on your lips giving an amazing radiant shine. I would totally recommend for you guys to test one out to see what you think because it’s my favourite lipstick right now.

Maybelline X Gigi Hadid
So.. apparently Yolanda Hadid actually loves this lipstick and well I have to agree with her. It’s from Maybelline so you know already that it’s going to be affordable. It’s comfortable on your lips and moisturizing so that it’s the perfect consistency for the Autumn once again. It’s been one that I’ve been using for a while now as it used to remind me as a drugstore version of Mac’s ‘Velvet Teddy’ and once I had run out of that, this was always my go-to. Now, I’ve realized that there is so much more to this lipstick than that, mine is in the shade ‘Taura’ which is slightly darker than ‘Velvet Teddy’ but A LOT more pigmented and moisturizing. The amount of compliments I get wearing this is unreal, it’s definitely an essential to me this Autumn time.

Estee Lauder Pure Colour (white packaging)
I’ve had this lipstick for so long and it comes out every Autumn that it doesn’t even feel like Autumn without it. It is the perfect shade for this season. It has hints of shine and shimmer and is again another beautifully hydrating one. It is a really pretty autumnal colour that makes you want to wear it all the time. This one’s in the shade ‘Sugar Honey’ and it’s a stunning light burgundy almost neutral shade. Like the Dior one, you can wear it on a daily basis without it being considered daring but it can definitely be dressed up and made an ‘out there’ lipstick if you want it to be.

Estee Lauder Pure Colour (gold packaging)
Can you tell I love this brand? Lol. This is also a lipstick I’ve had for forever which makes an appearance every Autumn. This is a BOLD colour. The statement colour you’ve all been waiting for is this burgundy, pigmented, long lasting lipstick in the shade ‘Hot Kiss’. Probably the most Autumnal shade you will ever find. It’s pretty hard to wear because of it’s statement shade but once you’ve got the right outfit it can look as elegant as ever. I feel the best way to describe this shade is literally ‘Parisian’, it’s classy and extravagant and I would suggest checking it out next time you’re at your local Estee Lauder counter.

NYX Liquid Suede
I feel as though this shade is very Kylie Jenner inspired and has the popular Instagram pouty lip vibe to it. It’s a dark nude which dries matte and yes it is a lipgloss but the other lipsticks which I’ve mentioned are a lot more comfortable than this and contain a better consistency for the Autumn. Nevertheless the shade is amazing. It goes great with my brown hair and it’s not a sticky consistency as almost most lip glosses are, so when the wind’s blowing all my hair doesn’t automatically get stuck to my lips. The range of colours is huge so if this shade isn’t for you then there are for sure a variety of other Autumnal shades you can try out.
I hope you all have a great week! Be sure to let me know in the comments which shade of lipstick you’ll be wearing this Autumn, because you guys can probably guessed by now how much I love lipsticks and I’m always open to other suggestions. Thank you for reading!
