Lip Edit: A/W Lipstick Picks

After the #bbloggers chat got us all talking about A/W the other week, it really got me thinking about the lip colours I wanted to get out for the A/W months as the ‘plum lip’ was definitely a popular topic during the chat. So I had a little rummage through my lip product and i’ve pulled out five that I think would be perfect for A/W.

L-R: Bourjois ‘Red Sunrise’ Lip Crayon, Maybelline ‘Cherry Me’ Babylips, Maybelline ‘Berry Ready’ Color Whisper, MAC ‘Rebel’, CK ‘Fusion’.

Now a lot of these shades are kind of similar, but every lipstick lover out there will understand that they really aren’t all that similar (trying to justify here ha).

Starting with the highly talked about Bourjois ‘Red Sunrise’ Lip Crayon (review here) for me this is going to be my staple red lip colour as a normal red lipstick makes me look so pale, but thankfully this doesn’t. The lightweight glossy finish to this suits me so well and as this is a build able lip colour I can wear this in so many different ways.

Sticking with the red, next is the Maybelline ‘Cherry Me’ Baby Lips (review here). Now I know this product doesn’t have that much pigmentation to it, it does give my lips a nice wash of pinky red that I really like. Also, as the winter months tend to dry out my lips this will come in so handy to help my keep my lips moisturised and hydrated.

Moving more into the berry/plum colours, is the Maybelline ‘Berry Ready’ Color Whisper (review here). As I mentioned in my recent review, I honestly love this lipstick as it is the perfect berry red shade that glides on so smoothly and gives a somewhat glossy finish but also keeps my lips hydrated throughout the day. 

Next is one I know a lot of you want to get your hands on and that is MAC ‘Rebel’ (review here). This is one of my favourite lipsticks as it is the perfect plum lipstick, I just love how pigmented the colour is. As this has a satin finish, it is a little drying but I find applying a lipbalm before applying the lipstick helps to keep my lips a little more hydrated throughout the day. I don’t think i’ll ever be without this lipstick, every girl should own this lipstick in my eyes.

Lastly is a lipstick that I think of as an almost dupe for Rebel and that is the CK ‘Fusion’, which is another lovely plum shade. I really like this lipstick as it glides on so smoothly and has a lovely finish that doesn’t dry my lips out at all. For £1.99 this lipstick is one that I couldn’t say no to.

What lip colours are going to be wearing this A/W?
