Autumnal Lipstick & Nail Polish Favourites

Autumn Lipsticks & Nail Polishes

| Autumnal Lipstick & Nail Polish Favourites! |

Another instalment of my Autumn makeup favourites is coming your way today and this time it's all about the lips and tips. Expect to find an abundance of rich burgundy hues, some deep nudes as well as a pop of red in my stash of autumnal lipstick and nail polish favourites.

An Autumn favourite that I wait patiently all year to crack out is my trusty Rimmel 107 lipstick, a deep burgundy colour with red undertones. I would describe it as the epitome of Autumn and the creamy matte formula lasts quite well whilst feeling comfortable on the lips. I usually pair this in the classic way with glistening gold eyeshadow for all the cosy Autumnal vibes.

If you're in a daring mood then Nars Cruella is another bold option for Autumn. The pencil applicator allows for precise application, avoiding any red smudges around the lips, and the matte formula is long-lasting and doesn't bleed. 

During Autumn I tend to reach for deeper nude hues, Silk Rose by Rosie for Autograph being one of my favourites. The dark rosy nude shade complements a burgundy or copper eye look and the cream-sheen formula feels lightweight and hydrating on the lips. 

Another nude favourite that has stood the test of time in my makeup collection is the Revlon Colourburst Matte Balm in Elusive, a pretty rose pink shade. The cool-toned hue is perfect for the colder weather and the minty scent smells delicious! However, this won't be in my makeup bag this year because after swatching the lipstick I found a tiny speck of mould on it so I had to throw it out *insert crying emoji* This is what happens when you're a lipstick hoarder, haha!

I'll also be reaching for a new favourite this season, the Fatal Muse liquid matte lipstick in no.730 Confession* from L.O.V Cosmetics. This liquid lipstick provides great staying power without compromising on comfort as the velvety, mousse-like formula is non-drying much like the NYX soft matte lip creams.

My first nail polish favourite is a muted nude option; Essie Eternal Optimist is a gorgeous nude pink shade but the deeper rosy undertones make it the perfect Autumn nude shade. 

In Stitches is a little bit more festive for the cosy season as the reddish-brown shade mirrors the brown leaves flitting down from the trees.

Chinchilly is a cool grey hue to match the grey clouds and rainy weather! As you can imagine the shade is quite dull so to perk it up I usually add a sparkly accent nail. The polish is opaque in two coats and lasts a few days before the first signs of chipping.

It's Genius is my favourite Autumn shade! Not only is it a rich burgundy hue but it also has tiny flecks of shimmer in it which adds a little bit of detail to the nails. 

What are your favourite Autumnal lipsticks and nail polishes?

Love,
