Transitional autumn lipsticks

In the last week or so I've definitely noticed the excitement of other bloggers for the Autumn months, myself included. The dark nights are already rolling in now and I can't wait to snuggle up in the evenings enjoying my favourite tv shows, wear about 6 layers of clothing and drink copious amounts of hot chocolate. Sounds ideal right? It's not only the dark nights and change in weather we notice but beauty wise we see ourselves switching out a few things in our makeup bags for new exciting things as well. I'm one of those people that loves wearing lipstick (usually matte) to complete a makeup look - otherwise it just doesn't seem finished, with that being said transitional lipsticks are a must. You don't want to go all out with the darkest of dark shades but you feel yourself reaching for a berry shade over a coral and therefore I thought I'd share a few of my favourites.

From looking at the photos, you may think they're all berry shades but this is where I promise they are all very different!  The most well known MAC lipstick for this time of year has to be Rebel, which is a satin finish and a lot less scarier on the lips than in the bullet. This is always in my handbag, its so smooth upon application and stays on for the most part of the day. Although we all know mattes are my one true love mainly because I know they'll stay put throughout the day but surprisingly so does this (and it doesn't bleed). I think that's what makes me love it more, it'll always be a staple for my A/W beauty bag!

I always like to keep my posts and favourites, a mix of drugstore and slightly higher end just because there's always an option for everyone and I don't think anything could be more affordable than the Rimmel Kate Matte Lipstick in shade 107. Its a beautiful matte berry shade which is probably one of the darkest in this post, I always like to apply a few layers to create a bolder look but with its formula, it only really needs one swipe. Its super affordable and I feel like its one of those berry shades that would suit every skin tone, I'm super pale and it doesn't wash me out too much and on darker skin it looks just as fab!

As for the next lipstick, its probably the darkest of the lot and when it first arrived through the post I was like maybe I've gone a shade too dark but upon swatching realised its not half as scary as it looks. It is the darkest shade still but not too dark. Disturbed is a fairly new purchase from Urban Decay's latest release - its a comfort matte which is supposed to be less drying on the lips and as the name states easier to wear without the feeling of a matte lipstick but with the safety. It's really smooth on application and produces a gorgeous wine colour on the lips and can we just appreciate how gorgeous the new packaging is? I think this will definitely become a firm favourite of mine.

This next pick might cheating because the title says lipsticks and this is more of a liquid lipstick but still its probably my most recent purchase and my new favourite! My local Boots, in fact all Boots I've been to have had barely any NYX products left whenever I'm visiting (because it's so bloody brilliant) and so when I went to the Trafford Centre a few weeks ago, I wasn't as excited about the massive food court or indoor bowling or Victoria's Secret but the giant NYX counter. I was short on time so I was only able to pick up a few things including the  very affordable NYX Lingerie Liquid Lipstick in Embellishment. It's a gorgeous purple-dusky shade which isn't a shade I'd usually go for but I'm oh so glad I did. It wears all day on the lips and I was able to eat and drink without it budging!

Another matte, there's almost a theme going on here. The next is MAC's DIVA, I won't say too much about it because one of my recent posts is a review (link here) if you want to read that instead but the lipstick is amazing! Lastly Illamsqua's Magnetism - this is one I've owned for a while and probably the most drying of the lot in true matte form, the application isn't just as smooth as the others but I can't get over how cute the square packaging is and how it doesn't roll away when you're trying to snap a few photos #bloggerproblems! However it's still a beaut shade although not my favourite and great for that transitioning makeup bag.

I hope this wasn't too length-y for you all but let me know what are your go to Autumn lipsticks?

Thanks for reading, Jenny xo
