I’ve seen a fair few bloggers sharing their a/w lip picks and I thought i’d jump on the bandwagon, and share which shades i’ll be getting the most wear out of as the winter months roll in.
Last a/w I was all about the berry lip, it was my go to and I loved how confident a berry lip made me feel. This year, i’m still going to be rocking the berry lip, but i’ll also be introducing some different shades into the mix.
Starting with the Makeup Revolution ‘Atomic Red’ Lipstick* (£1), which is this beautiful pink toned red shade that I have literally fallen in love with. This lipstick is from Makeup Revolution’s new Atomic Collection and all of the shades in this range are all about intensity and drama. This shade is definitely the most intense red i’ve ever owned and I love the rich pigmentation to it. Next up is my favourite lipstick of the moment, and this is the MAC ‘Plumful’ Lipstick (£15.50). It’s a beautiful muted down plum pink, perfect for everyday wear and I love the little pop of colour that it gives. As it’s a lustre finish, the pigmentation isn’t as intense but it is really build-able and it isn’t at all drying.
Moving on the more deeper berry shades, and a firm favourite of mine is the YSL ‘No.5’ Volupte Shine Lipstick (£25). This shade is very rich berry/plum shade that has this beautiful shine finish to it, that I absolutely love. I really need to wear this lipstick more, I just get scared carrying around that i’m going to lose it, but I think i’ll be getting a lot more wear out of this. Next is a more cheaper option when it comes to berry shades, and this is the Revlon ‘Raspberry Pie’ Lip Butter (£7.99). This shade is a lovely deep raspberry shade, but is also really moisturising and so wearable for an everyday basis.
Lastly is my lip crayon pick for a/w and this is the Revlon ‘Flirtatious’ Colorburst Lacquer Balm (£7.99). I love the finish of this as it is super nourishing, but also so pigmented and so wearable for an everyday basis. It’s also great if you want a quick sweep of colour when you’re in a rush.
What shades are you wearing this a/w?
