Fall Favorite Lip Colors
When thinking of the perfect lip color for fall, I was consumed with not only finding the perfect color, but I was also committed to finding a great consistency, a long wearing lipstick that wouldn't break the bank. With all things considered, while I was rumagging through tubes, and tubes of lipsticks I couldn't shake the image of Monica from FRIENDS circa the mid-90's. I was consumed with flashbacks of her perfect deep brick reds, warm tawny nudes, anything mocha and the occasional moody onyx.
Basically anything you'd see during that era is making it's way back into fashion, even down to the shade of lipstick we're putting on.
(starting from lightest to darkest)
Hourglass Nude Lip Style in "Nude #3" this is 1 out of 2 shades that cost more the $10 out of the chosen bunch. It's a tawny nude. A non-drying formula, which is a reoccurring theme for a lot of my picks this month. The weather is dry and we've got to combat any dryness while still looking fabulous. The lippy's crayon like design is un-intimidating and easy to apply on the go.
NYX Butter Lipstick in "Root Beer Float" is a dusty rose shade that has become one of my top favorites for transitioning into fall. It's also moisturizing formula as well. Another plus is after I'm done sipping on my coffee the lipsticks silky finish maybe gone but the pigment wear is still there!
Stila Stay all day liquid lipstick in "Dolce" is a warm, bronzy Mocha lip color with cooler undertones. My skin tone picks up a lot of the coolness and can read a bit more gray for a mocha color. This color is great for very fair, or more olive skin tones. It's an all day lipstick matte and doesn't dry out your lips like some all day lipsticks can.
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in "Toast of New York" It's a very, very warm lipstick, an orangier red. It has the quality to warm up your face when your want to more minimal on eyes. Its not heavy on pigmentation in comparison to the rest, it has a nice glossier finish.
Maybelline Color Jolt in "Talk back Red" this color takes the cake on vibrancy. I love the pop of color this lip paint delivers. This bright candy rose lip color is more appropriate for a dressed up, fun occasion that the fall holidays call for!
Maybelline Color Blur in "Partner in Crimson" is another top pick from the group, for color and finish purposes. The formula on these babies make me so very happy! The color is a deep red that mimics a merlot. They are so smooth, and are in no way drying. The silky finish rivals higher end brands!
NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in "Cherry Skies 03". This is the equivalent to a power tie for a woman. I love the boldness of this lip color! This is the moody onyx red. It's a daring color that still looks flattering. If I'm ever feeling underwhelming or blah, this shade is always my saving grace to bring me a fun edge. Plus it's self-proclaimed as waterproof which can save you a few application through out the day!
Hope you have fun playing with a change of color with the change of season. Find what works best you, but just remember to experiment!
