My Fall Lipstick Picks 2018!

Thursday 18 October 2018

When fall comes around I love to bring out the darker shades. Here are my top picks this year! 
Also, excuse the no-makeup face, I just haven't felt like wearing makeup lately. I feel i've just been too tired to deal with it and that kind of sucks but at the same time it feels great. A little mascara and some lipstick and i'm out the door.

YSL - Le Rouge

Too Faced Melted Matte lipstick - Drop Dead Red
Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink - 45 - Escapist

1 - Burberry Lip Velvet in the shade "Oxblood"

This lipstick is my most favourite out of every one that I own. I've been using it for a couple of years and the colour is gorgeous, especially in the fall. It's my staple piece every fall. Also, the lipstick case is magnetic so that's pretty great.

2 - Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink  in the shade "45 - escapist"

I don't use this one too often but I like to wear it on those days where I want something more dark, intense, and edgy. It's not the easiest to apply, especially if you don't use a lip pencil, which I normally don't ever. I will have to start doing it with this one. Other than than, it applies well over the lips, in my opinion. I didn't get much of an uneven texture and colour like I would with many other dark lipsticks. I will add, though, that this product does leave a weird feeling or a tingling on the lips. If that kind of thing bothers you, I would say stay away from this one.

3 - YSL Limited Edition Lipstick in the shade "Le Rouge"

This was a new purchase. I never tried ysl lipsticks before but I was in need of a new red lip because my other ones were getting old. This shade is so gorgeous. It's the perfect elegant, red lip. This is a great all year round shade.

4 - Too Faced Melted Chocolate in the shade "Chocolate Honey"

I use this one quite a bit. Sometimes fully applied, other times I just dab a tiny bit to my lips. I'm always a fan. I tend to wear this one all year 'round as well. I find it a very calm shade. 

5. Laura Mercier in the shade  "An Affair"

Okay, this shade wasn't turning out right on camera, it was coming off more red, so I searched back through photos where I was wearing it to show it's true colour. It's a deep plum shade that really stands out. It's gorgeous for the fall. 

6. Too Faced Melted Matte in the shade "Drop Dead Red"

I've been trying this dark red-brown shade recently and i've been really loving it. It's matte and really pigmented. It applies really well. It's so intense that it's a bit difficult to take it especially without makeup remover which I actually don't use because I rarely wear anything besides mascara and eyeshadow on a daily basis. Sometimes I add a bit of shimmer eyeshadow on top (second photo) to make it a little more fun.
