Top Five Autumn Lipsticks

Hello Lovelies!

As we're well in to October now I thought I should do an Autumn version of my top five lipstick series (see my summer one here). Autumn has to be my favourite season as I love big snuggly jumpers, stodgey comfort food and dressing up for Halloween. Plus it's the countdown to Christmas and my birthday! But another reason this season is so great is because of the lipsticks you can get away with wearing. Over spring and summer anything that wasn't a peachy nude didn't stand much of a chance of making it onto my lips (note to self: be more adventurous with lip colour next summer), but now I'm all about the deep berries and dusky muted pinks...

From left to right: Collection Cream Puff in 'cotton candy' / No7 Stay Perfect in 'classic rose' / Max Factor Lipfinity Tint in 'pink princess' / Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish in '107' / No7 Sheer Temptation in 'sassy'

Collection Cream Puff in 'cotton candy' £2.99- If you haven't got your hands on one of these yet then for the measly amount of three pounds I really think you should! They are described as 'moisturising lip creams' and are unlike any other lip product I've tried as they glide on like a thick creamy lip gloss and then dry like a matte lipstick. This purple toned pink also smells like Vanilla angel delight so you will have to fight the urge to lick your lips when your wearing this, or maybe that's just me...
  No7 Stay Perfect in 'classic rose' £9- This is one of the first proper lipsticks I ever bought and it's managed to remain one of my favourites because as the name suggests it's just very classic. It got neglected over the summer due to my obsession with lighter summery pinks but now we're in October I've welcomed it back into my make up bag, how nice of me.
Max Factor Lipfinity Tint in 'pink princess' £6.99- One of my only lip tint pen products, I do find it a bit hard to work with particularly when I have dry lips, but the plum colour is perfect for this season's berry trends and I do find it to be pretty long lasting. Looks lovely with a slick of lip gloss over the top too. 
Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish in '107' £5.49- I hurried out to get this the day it was released in Rimmel's new a/w collection as I adore the other lipsticks in the Kate Moss range and would go as far as saying they're the best drug store lipsticks out there. Big claim I know, but the incredible pigmentation, creamy glide on formula and long lasting matte finish can't be argued with and I was so happy to add this deep red/purple shade to my autumn lipstick collection.   
 No7 Sheer Temptation in 'sassy' £9- I know the colour in the pan is pretty terrifying for anyone let alone nude lip lovers but as it's part of the sheer temptation range it does translate to a very subtle blackcurrant shade that is actually incredibly wearable for day and night time. My only gripe is that it doesn't last very long, but it's glossy formula does make it easy to reapply on the go.

Please let me know what your favourite autumnal lipsticks are as I love getting recommendations from fellow beauty I'm having a bit of a chill out, pamper and work out day with Rosie as we have Friday's off from uni but tonight we're doing the charity musical concert that I mentioned in my last post followed by a night out in Sheffield which should all be lots of fun. Particularly as I get to sing Elle Woods' part in the song we're doing from Legally Blonde and which girl doesn't want to pretend to be Elle Woods at least once in her life haha

I hope you've all had a good week! 
Love Meg
