Best Autumn Lipsticks
With summer finally over and the colder nights slowly creeping in it’s a good excuse to be able to expand your makeup collection and with different autumnal looks. A massive look that’s always inspired by the seasons is lip colours, and in autumn you have the free range (I mean lets be real you can wear black lippy in summer if you want, however you must feel a tad hot looking at yourself) to be able to wear a multitude of darker colours from dark browns to pinks and reds. So here at Beautifinda we’ve looked around for some of the most gorgeous autumnal lipstick shades to inspire a new makeup look for you.
Mac chili lipstick – available at Mac, Myer, David Jones – $36
This shade evokes the colours of autumn, the lipstick is a beautiful brownish-orange red which is perfect for the upcoming months. Its creamy matte texture gives a big colour payoff and stays put quite nicely through drinking and eating. Chili is a nice change from a block red, and with browns and nudes having a resurgence it is a perfect combination of autumn colours which is sure to impress.
Nars audacious lipstick in Janet – available at Nars, Mecca and Sephora – $49
Everyone needs a good purplish lipstick in their collection and this one is to die for. Nars audacious lipstick in Janet is a deep magenta colour which will be sure to add a pop of colour to your autumnal wardrobe (much needed if you live Melbs since your wardrobe’s sure to be black, black, and black). The creamy satin texture means that the lipstick is an absolute breeze to glide and cover your lips.
Yves Saint Laurent rouge pur couture in no. 1 le rouge – available at Myer, David Jones, Mecca and Sephora – $55
Red is an absolute staple for anyone who loves lipsticks, no matter what the trends of the moment are a good red lippy will always be in style. This YSL lipstick is a right dream, with a smooth consistency (and weirdly nice smell) it glides on the lip with a smooth buttery texture and is the most beautiful vibrant red that will suit any complexion.
Rimmel Kate Moss matte finish lipstick in 111 – available at Priceline – $12.95
If you want a beautiful matte lipstick that gives a luxury brand a run for their money then look no further. This lipstick has an amazing colour pay off with a beautiful matte finish, the fact that it is also more than half the price of the other lipsticks is a major bonus. Shade 111 is a beautiful orange-red colour which would be an amazing addition to your face on an autumn days walk amongst the burnt orange, brown and yellow leaves.
Bourjois colour boost lip crayon in sweet macchiato – available at Priceline – $15
For those of you who prefer a sheer glossy lip but still want a nice colour pay off then I would definitely suggest the Bourjois colour boost lip crayons. They make lips appear ultra-shiny and glossy which makes it easily wearable and still gives you a generous hint of colour. The colour sweet macchiato is a brilliantly lustrous brown which is sure to evoke autumnal colours as well as a little blast from the past in the form of the 90’s, get the chokers out gals.
Mac lip pencil in spice – available at Mac stores and counters – $30
Some people prefer just a little fill and lining of the lips from a lip liner and I completely understand why. These Mac liners have a really creamy consistency and is honestly like wearing a matte lipstick, except it never budges or feathers throughout the night. Spice is an absolute gem of a colour which is described by Mac as a “pink cinnamon stick” (couldn’t explain it better myself) and it is such a stunning autumnal colour. A deep brownish-pink which suits all skin tones and honestly makes your lips look fuller, I don’t know how, but this is the only colour in which when I apply it all my friends ask me what colour I’m wearing and whether my lips have gotten bigger. A win all round.
Smashbox be legendary lipstick in plum role – available at Mecca – $30
Everyone needs a good plum lippy in their makeup bag for the cooler months and this smashbox shade is an absolutely gorgeous deep plum option. The lipstick range is available in either a satin or matte finish which is a perfect way to cater to everyone’s lipstick needs. Both options are highly nourishing for the lips and don’t dry out easily which is great for the colder months.
