Hello everyone! 🙂
Firstly, sorry for not posting in a while. My mind’s just been all over the place and I’m not only dealing with studies, but with backstabbing friends and ‘mixed-signal-sending’ crushes, so I’m super sorry that I wasn’t on that much. 😦
So, one good thing about the end of summer is that it’s finally autumn season! Whoop! Whoop!
I just love the whole ‘autumn feel’ everything gets, the candles, the fashion, the makeup… Speaking of makeup, there’s a trend that’s basically an autumn classic and that’s darker lip colours, which I love. (since I am really pale, so light lips make me look even paler…) I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite dark lip products.
(Oh, and if you’re interested in purchasing any of these, click the name or the photo of the product; if I wasn’t able to find it, it’ll be a dupe link)
I like to think of this as brown and neutral, as it doesn’t really give you a pop, so you can make your eyes (for example) the center of attention. To create this look, I used a lip pencil from Aura (031) and an Avon lipstick. (Bronze Treasure)
Now, I’ll admit that I don’t have that many berry lip products, which is a bummer really, as I love them! This is a lip pencil by Dior and it’s quite old, so I’m not sure if it’s been discontinued, but it’s in the shade (973 Blackberry Mauve/Violet Myrtille)
(and yes, this is what I call berry.)
3) Dark Red
Another super common and classy one. I got the Rimmel Provocalips 24h Kissproof Lip Colour in the shade Play With Fire about a month ago and haven’t really used it that much, but I don’t really like it. (I’ll probably do a review/disappointing products post soon)
The shade is incredible, though, so I went scouring for a similar one and I found the Maybelline lipstick in Pleasure Me Red, which is quite similar to Play With Fire, so I’m looking to get that.
4) “Regular” (Warm Toned) Red
For this one, I chose my Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish lipstick in the shade 111 (Kiss Of Life), which I actually reviewed, so you can click here to read that. 🙂 This is just the definition of the perfect red for me. Enough said. 😀
I also found this Oriflame lipstick and it’s so beautiful! 😀
5) Blue Toned Red
Another blue toned red is this Dior lipstick which I have and it’s incredible, truly. I just need to find it, as I’m pretty sure it’s been discontinued. 😦
6) The Too Faced Bonjour Beautiful Lip Colour Palette
I love this palette so much, but I’ve already rambled enough about it in a separate post, so you can click here to check that out. 🙂
All the lip liners:
And that’s it! I hope you enjoyed this post. 🙂
Have you tried any of the products I mentioned?
Which is your favourite dark, autumn-y lip product?
Thank you so much for reading!
Have a lovely day. 🙂
