Autumn/Winter Lipsticks 2016

It's October, it's Autumn and the dark lips are ready to come out until the end of Winter. Here are the favourites that I will be swapping between this time around...

Kylie Cosmetics Matte Liquid Lipstick - Leo

Despite being named after Kylie's star sign and the summery sign of Leo, this colour couldn't be more autumnal! It's a true maroon shade, perfect for fall time make up looks. The pigmentation is fantastic so it's definitely a statement colour. Go bold or go home with this one! Although it's a matte finish, it feels quite smooth on the lips and doesn't dry them out. Sadly, this was a limited edition colour for Kylie Jenner's birthday collection, but they're are countless drugstore brands that offer fantastic dupes such as Nyx and Sleek.

Sleek Lip VIP Lipstick - Show Off

Sleek have recently released new lipstick shades for Autumn/Winter and I am in love. They are for sure one of my top drugstore brands (ooh I have an idea for a blog post now, who wants to see my favourite drugstore brands?). Stepping away from a the deep tones of burgundy and maroon, this is also the perfect time of year to go for darker nudes. The shade 'Show Off' is a deep pink nude, and it's such a gorgeous colour for when you still want a darker colour but not as bold as red or burgundy. It's a semi-matte finish, which I love. Pair this lipstick with a bold winged liner and/ or a neutral eyeshadow look and you're good to go.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick - Black Cherry

This one is a cult beauty favourite for many beauty bloggers, I picked it up last year and am happy to use it again. It's just a classic burgundy shade, and has a smooth, moisturising formula similar to Mac's creamsheen colours. Therefore, this is my glossy option and Leo is my matte option. It's very easy to build this colour up to how intense you want the colour, and you can always blot your lips with a tissue for a more mattifying finish. You can't go wrong with Black Cherry.

Here are some swatches! Top - Leo, Middle - Show Off, Bottom - Black Cherry.

What are your favourite lip colours for Autumn and Winter?



  1. Black Cherry is gorgeous, I love shades like this and I am afraid I order too many like this one recently :)


  2. Kylie's lipstick looks amazing, however Ive seen terrible reviews on this brand. I do not thing I would spend this amount of money and take a chance that the lipstick tube is going to be half empty:( but as you mentioned, NYX has ultimate amount of shades and quality is not bad at all. Leo shade is almost the same like Copenhagen by NYX :)
