When the seasons begin to change, there’s an excitement in the air borne of the opportunity to try out a new palette of eyeshadow, lipstick and nail polish hues. With autumn just around the corner and a break from the African heat on its way (can we get a hallelujah?), here are the new season’s lipstick shades to get excited about…
1. Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Crazy for Coffee
This luscious lipstick hue by Maybelline is the perfect mixture of mocha and a deep berry red, and the creamy moist texture leaves your lips looking plump and glossy. Coverage is sheer to medium, and it pairs perfectly with a simple makeup look for the day time or a heavy smoky eye for evening.
2. Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Mrs. Mia Wallace
This incredible autumn-inspired hue is described as the quintessential deep blood red. It provides a luscious cream finish with a slightly glossy sheen, and the hydrating formula makes for a slightly opaque coverage, but the shade wears well for 6 hours or more.
3. NYX Professional Makeup Matte Lipstick in Honeymoon
As romantic as the name suggests, this lipstick shade is the ultimate deep nude for autumn. The formula is plush and highly pigmented with a matte finish, and it provides an incredibly smooth application and stays put all day with a finish that doesn’t dry, cake or crack.
4. Lancôme L’Absolu Gloss Matte in #356 Beaux Arts
This shade of lipstick is the epitome of femininity for autumn with its dusty rose pink hue. The ultra-creamy texture provides a highly pigmented coverage and the velvety matte finish doesn’t crack or crease throughout the day. For best results, prepare your lips with L'Absolu Rouge La Base.
Prepare your lips for the incredibly moisturising lipstick formulas to come this autumn and keep the effects of the cold weather at bay by adding to your growing lipstick collection.
