So we are in fall/autumn right now (whatever you would like to call it ) and I just love wearing darker/more statement lip colours. I thought that I'd share with you the ones that I have been loving and what I would recommend to you.
If you love wearing darker/more statement makeup in fall/autumn as well... leave me a comment telling me your favourite lipsticks and other beauty products. I would love to know :)
So the first one that I have been using most frequently is one that I got for my birthday around about last week. It is the Riri Mac Lipstick in 'Riri Woo':
I love this lipstick so much! I know it's quite bright... but it is a gorgeous red and I absolutely love the packaging! I love the fact that it is matte... I tend to wear matte lipsticks rather than shiny. It came off very easily from my hand and lips leaving a barely even noticeable stain.

The next lipstick is dark pink which I have been loving.... I've had it for a while now so I'm not sure if you can still get it or not... It is Urban Decay Lipstick in 'Jilted'.
I love the packaging, It has a little sword in the top which you open it by which is very sturdy and has never come out.
The pattern on the packaging is also very appealing, it had swirls, butterflies and even some skulls all in different shade of purple which look very pretty.
Altogether, Urban Decay did a really good job on designing this lipstick which is one of the reasons why I wear it so often, I wouldn't say it is very pigmented because it is a little sheer, it also has a bit of a sheen and has a good scent to it....

This next lipstick is also another red.... but this one is the Rimmel Kate Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick in 111 or 'Kiss of Life'.
I already said about the Mac Riri red lipstick but I have so many different red lipsticks that are all very different that I love to wear.
I've had this lipstick since about last year and I love to use it in the wintery/autumn seasons with a simple eye look. The packaging isn't as decorative and pretty as the ones above but it is still simple and stylish.
As you can see in my pictures, the red is a lot brighter than the Mac Riri lipstick which I had first mentioned. Although the lipstick is meant to matte, I feel that when I apply it is does have a slight sheen whereas the Mac Riri one is completely matte but... I don't mind because I still absolutely love the colour and still wear it.

This next lipstick is also another red lipstick by Rimmel Kate but it is a deeper purple red in 107:
This lipstick is probably one of my very favourite lipsticks of all time and I am so glad that I had brought this. Its a deep burgundy/ wine red and it looks gorgeous with simple eye makeup and a pretty pink blush.
As you can see below, the colour is VERY pigmented and has a slight hint of a pink colour in it which adds a nice feminine touch to it.

This final lipstick is a very old one by Marks and Spencer. I know Marks and Spencer aren't really a makeup brand but I still love this lipstick made by them. I got it a very long time ago so I am not sure as to whether you can get it anymore but its one that I own and love and it is 15 or 'Copper Rose'.
Its a very pretty copper shimmery colour with a glittery sheen. The packaging is very sleek and looks very stylish, especially with the small gold band.
I don't normally like shimmery lipsticks but this one I do... its almost slightly metallic.
This swatch shows the lipstick a bit lighter than what it is on my lips because the lipstick is quite sheer so it shows the base through it a bit... when I have it on my lips, its a bit more of a darker brown colour because my lips are darker than the skin on my hand.
❤ ❤ ❤
