All About Autumn: Lips

Back today for part three (here's part one and part two) of my All About Autumn mini series and today we're looking at lips! As soon as the weather starts to get even remotely chilly I'm always desperate to crack out the deepest of berry shades, but, instead I'm trying to show some restraint and embrace some warm, earthy autumnal tones first...

1. Bourjois Shine Edition in Mauve Tabloid
 This is a great Summer to Autumn transition shade; it's still quite pink and fresh, and that, combined with the more sheer finish gives it a more Summery feel, but, there are some serious berry tones going on in there too. 

2. Soap and Glory Fabu-lipstick in Naked Beige
 I love everything about this lipstick; it has a fantastic cream finish and smooth feel to it and the shade is just right for a neutral lover like me to wear in Autumn; a reddy toned brown that still looks very natural. 

3. Essence Lipstick in On the Catwalk
A great red for this time of year; it's still quite sheer so it's comfortable enough for every day wear and again, there's some nice berryish undertones going on. Plus, let's face it, if you're on a budget; this is fantastic choice for something to add in to your stash to bring things a little more on trend.

4. Milani Matte Lipstick in Rose Femme
This is my favourite lipstick of the moment! First off I love the colour; it's a dusky, mauvey rose pink - with cool tones to it so it's whitening for teeth, always a plus. This also has great pigmentation so it's easy to apply with one sweep, and, seriously, this lasts, and lasts... and lasts. (And I'm a seriously messy eater, so it takes a lot for something to last on me..)

5. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Antwerp 
Another long lasting option here, this is a beautiful coral/poppr shade which might not seem like an obvious Fall choice, but trust me, this goes great with any browns or mustards you might be wearing this time of year. 

 Left to Right; NYX Antwerp, Bourjois Mauve Tabloid, Soap and Glory Naked Beige, Essence On the Catwalk, Milani Rosee Femme 

And those are the lip shades I've chosen for this time of year. I think there's a good mix of options there, though
I'm not going to lie... I'm still pretty eager to get in to those super wintery berry shades...
