Two Lipsticks to Carry you Into Autumn

To me, it's already Autumn. September is about change and starting afresh and so it's no wonder I am stuck in the mindset that it's already Autumn. Autumnal make-up is bold and captivating and I have two lip products to share that will help you achieve bolder looks with minimal effort.

The first product is bareMinerals Pop of Passion Lip-Oil Balm (£17.00/3.1g) in the Shade 'Plumberry Pop'. This product is fantastic for those wanting to get into lipsticks, but don't like the faff surrounding it. This shade is a lovely sheer plum/berry shade that's brilliant for this coming season. Since it's sheer, it's perfect to take on the go and is so low maintenance that it's akin to lip-balm. This product however is better than traditional lip-balms because of it's oil texture, which keeps the lips moisturised and looking hydrated. I think this shade looks so nice with gold eye-shadow, as it makes the gold pop even more and just really puts a look together!


The second product is more of a statement lip, and it is the NYX Liquid Suede (£6.50/4ml) in the shade 'Soft Spoken'. This is actually the first NYX product that I've tried and so far I actually really like it. So this is a liquid lipstick, so it's designed to stay on the lips and not be as easily transferable as traditional lipsticks. This product has good longevity and isn't drying on the lips, however before application you should be going in with a nourishing lip-balm. I think the preparation before applying this product is important as you want to make sure your lips are hydrated and flake free and then the application will go more smoothly! The shade of this product is so nice too, it's a slightly darker classic brown-pink colour that's currently on trend and so will suit a wide variety of skin-tones. When I wear this product I like to go with a more nude but polished look, so I will keep the rest of my make-up more on the brown side, but perhaps have a thicker liner or add more mascara to add more of a statement.



























So those are my two autumn lip picks, I would love to know what shades/colours you gravitate towards in autumn!

    1. Haha it's so easy to forget about products! I have three of the bareMinerals Lip-Oil balms and I love them all. I'm not a massive everyday lipstick wearer, but I like how these add colour without the fuss! Thanks for reading :)

  2. I really like how the Liquid Suede looks, I've seen them many times but I'm still on the fence on getting them or not, they have the most beautiful and crazy colors I've seen on a drugstore liquid lipstick. Great post, Anjna!

    1. I think you should purchase one! It's quite affordable for what it is and you can see if you actually like wearing liquid lips! Haha this is the only colour for the collection that's wearable for me! There are a few other nice ones if you have lighter skin than me though! But i totally agree that they have some wacky colours!
