Five Dark Lips For Autumn/Winter

So this post has been long over due but with my whole moving to France business I didn't have my full lipstick collection to hand so when I returned home two weeks ago I got my hands on five beautiful shades and brought them back with me!


As soon as autumn hits my corals are out and my berries are in! I adore the deepness to a dark lip as they add something very edgy, sexy and sophisticated to a look. Plus they can be worn as a stain (patted on with fingers) or slicked on thick and opaque. Don't be afraid of a dark lip! Trust me, with one swipe you will be converted and there are a multitude of shades and tones to choose from, here are the five I have chosen!


 Revlon Lip Butter - Red Velvet
A sheer, moisturising burgundy shade with more red tones than brown. This can be built up to a deeper shade or sheered out to give a hint of berry.




 Topshop Lipstick - Beguiled
A true autumn berry shade which has pinker undertones so it isn't too vampy or brown which makes it more wearable. A smooth creamy semi-matte finish which means it will last for hours without drying out the lips.



Nars Pure Matte Lipstick - Valparaiso 
A very purple toned berry, great for a bolder, darker look! This is incredibly creamy for a matte lipstick and has amazing staying power. An all-day all-night kinda lipstick.



Hourglass Opaque Rouge - Icon
This shade is what I would call a "dark blood red", imagine what lipstick a vampire would wear? This would be it. It can look very vampy and sexy or chic and elegant, it is a very versatile shade. Plus it is super long lasting however can be quite drying so not one for chapped lipped days but definitely one for meals, drinking and all night long partying!



Max Factor Colour Elixir Giant Pen Stick - Passionate Red
This shade is a stunning cherry shade lipstick which has an almost berry-purple tone. What makes this lipstick stand out is the pink frost which makes this an amazing party lip. Not quite red, not quite berry but definitely bold yet bright at the same time with an incredible sheen.



What shades are you rocking this Autumn/Winter?
