Autumn is a wonderful time of year to bring a bit more sass into your makeup bag. Darker tones gradually creep their way back in and I for one am a BIG fan!! I love a good bold lip. I think there’s nothing better to jazz up an outfit then a statement lip and some slicked back hair (very chic!). Here are my Top 3 vampy lip colours that I’ll be wearing this season.
REVLON VA VA VIOLET
Although this lipstick is not cruelty-free, I think I’ve had it for a few years now, long before I vowed only to buy cruelty-free makeup. I think it has lasted so long because it does only come out in the colder weather. It’s a very easy colour to wear, I feel, even if it is a very dark shade. It has a nice glossy consistency and is not at all matte or drying on the lips. I have mixed this one with one of my darker NYX soft matte lip creams to ensure it lasted for longer on the lips. I do think this particular shade has been discontinued, but I will have a look and see what cruelty=free alternatives I can find for it.
This is another (kind of) oldie. Its matte consistency does have a certain amount of lasting power, so for its €1.50 price tag it’s quite impressive. I’m not sure if this particular shade is back again this year but P.S Love are always stocked in a range of shades in Penneys / Primark.
NYX SOFT MATTE LIP CREAM IN ‘BUDAPEST’
This is my newest lip purchase which I picked up whilst I was actually in Budapest (very fitting, I know). This is also my favourite one because it is a matte consistency, almost like a lip stain nearly. Once it dries it just looks like your own lips, but darker and better! It also lasts ages and once it does wear off, it does so very evenly. This is my second NYX matte lip cream and so far I am really, really impressed.
