top four lipstick shades for fall

Ever since I was young, I would watch my mom apply her lipstick thinking how pretty it looked on her. She always said that adding a touch of colour to your lips would brighten up your face and give you a healthy vibrancy. Okay, not exactly in those words, but something along those lines. Like many other things throughout the years, my mom was right. Selecting the perfect lip colour can bring together an entire look. My fall lipstick rotation hardly changes. There is always at least one sheer nude, berry pinks and deep reds. 

I first heard about this lipstick in the shade Boy when I was watching one of Estee Lalonde's youtube videos. This was the first time I had a "youtube made me buy it" moment and I'm glad I did! This is a super sheer and ultra hydrating lipstick that I keep in my purse at all times. It adds just that little touch needed when you want something opposite of bold. Nobody finishes a tube of lipstick but I'm definitely trying with this one!

Make Up For Ever is one of my favourite makeup brands. I featured this lipstick in the shade #31 Satin Mauve Pink in a previous post around the same time I picked it up during IMATS Toronto 2015. The lipstick glides on smooth, leaving a creamy feel to your lips. It's quite pigmented, so I use a light hand when applying. The colour is a lovely shade of pink that can transition from winter to summer with ease. 

An incredibly stunning shade in Nocturnal (deep berry) that I have adored since the day it came home with me. This shade receives the most compliments both applied and shown in the tube. I can't help but swatch this every time I step into Sephora even though I have my own! Like the name, this lipstick does have a velvety feel on the lips, but dries matte. Not to fear, it doesn't stick to your lip lines or make your lips looks cracked in the slightest! 

So Charlotte (oxblood red) sounds daunting, however, it is anything but that. Personally, I feel that red lips are the most difficult to pull off, especially during the day, but I promise that this shade works for all skin tones. I love that the colour is on the cooler tone (not orange) so it helps make your teeth look sparkling white. This lipstick glides on equally as smooth as the Chanel. It dries matte and gives a flawless finish. You won't regret any lipstick made by Nars. They definitely have one of the best lipstick lines out there. Did I mention their tubes are magnetic? Never lose your cap in your purse again, amirite? 

What is your tried and tested lipstick that you cannot live without?

  4. I love red lips and I find it easy to pull it off even though I know many don't feel the same way. I have one Nars Audacious lipstick in shade Fanny that I wear a lot during the colder months and So Charlotte looks really lovely too.
