The Autumn/Winter Lip Arsenal

20 May 2015

I'm not one to follow makeup trends too closely, but I do love switching up my lipsticks to correspond with the season. Here's a look at the lipsticks that are getting prime real estate atop my makeup drawers this winter.

From left to right and top to bottom, we have:

Revlon Lip Butter in 'Pink Truffle' // MAC Lipstick in 'Brick-O-La' (Amplified) // Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in '01 Personne ne Rouge!' // Essence Longlasting Lipstick in 'On The Catwalk!'

YSL Rouge Volupté Sheer Candy in 'Mouthwatering Berry' // Rimmel Lasting Finish By Kate Moss in '107' // Dior Addict Lipstick in '437 Charmante' // Revlon Lip Butter in 'Berry Smoothie'

MAC Lipstick in 'Plumful' (Lustre) // Revlon Lip Butter in 'Raspberry Pie' // MAC Lipstick in 'Diva' (Matte) // Savvy Long Lasting Matte Lipstick in 'Bali'

I think it's safe to say that I like extremes in my lipsticks. Either balmy and sheer, or bold and matte. I'm especially impressed, though, by Essence lipsticks. They're the epitome of 'cheap and cheerful'. For less than a fiver, you get a comfortable, sheeny lipstick that's creamy without feeling thick on the lips. 

Another favourite is MAC Brick-O-La, mostly for the colour. It's not quite red, not quite brown, not quite pink and not especially berry; just a glorious mixture of all of these. Such a flattering colour for all, I would imagine.

Lastly, we have YSL Mouthwatering Berry, which is such an easy option to pop on in a rush. It's a long-term favourite of mine as it gives the lips a sheer, glossy wash of berry. Perfect as a low-maintenance autumnal shade.

P.S. I've heard on the grapevine that the Revlon Lip Butters are being discontinued. I get that they have to make room for new lipsticks (I'm guessing their Ultra HD line) but I feel like it's kind of an odd decision given the popularity and cult status of the Lip Butters. Interesting.

Edit: I've now witnessed this with my own eyes. No more Lip Butters on Revlon stands.
