Top Five Autumn Lip Colours

Top Five Autumn Lip Colours
As the seasons change, so too do make-up preferences; following on from my Top Five Autumn Nail Polishes a couple of weeks ago, I decided to put together my Top Five Autumn Lip Colours! I've tried to include a mix of products so there's something for everyone.
Autumn Lip Colour Swatches
(Left - Right): 2True Colour Drench Lip Gloss shade 10; Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm 
Stain 'Honey'; Clinique Lipstick 'Wow Violet'; Topshop Lip Marker 'Berry'; ELF Lipstick 'Voodoo'
Top Five Autumn Lip Colours Lip Swatches
(Top-bottom in lip swatches above):
ELF Lipstick in 'Voodoo' This is a lovely creamy lipstick which is comfortable to wear and nicely offsets a neutral or smokey eye for that deeper lip look which is very much an A/W trend. This is the only ELF lipstick I own but I like it and I'd definitely buy more from them!
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in 'Honey' I think this is a perfect colour year-round, but I've included it as it's always nice to have a downplayed option, when you don't want to look overdone; this is the perfect "no make-up" lip shade for me, as well as being really lovely to wear. Again, I don't have any other Revlon balm stains but I'd like to get some!
Topshop Lip Marker in 'Berry' I don't know how long I've had this but I love the colour - the name sums it up perfectly, it's just a beautiful deep, rich berry shade which is perfect for the cooler weather. Being a marker, it stains the lips slightly which makes it super low-maintenance, too - perfect! You can see this has become quite hard to apply in its old age, and sadly goes on very patchy, so I don't wear it as much as I'd like anymore - time to replace it!
Clinique Lipstick in 'Wow Violet' This is another typical A/W shade, and that's not a bad thing - again, it's a lovely deep shade, I wouldn't call it violet but it's definitely edging towards purple. I love this for evening with dramatic eye make-up!
2True Colour Drench Lip Gloss Shade 10 I'm not a lipgloss fan at all, so you know this one must be pretty special to make my top five list - which makes me a bit sad it doesn't have a proper shade name, just a number! It's a lovely deep colour which is really easy to wear and, most importantly for me, isn't sticky in the slightest. It doesn't last very well, being a gloss, but does fade nicely to a pretty, slightly shiny tint.
So, they're my top five Autumn lip colours! What are your favourite lip products for Autumn? Do you change your make-up throughout the year, or do you have a staple look you tend to stick to?

  6. I try to stick to lip balm and lip gloss in the fall because my lips tend to dry out more but I usually stick to pinks or nude colors (:
