10 Makeup Picks for Autumn

I'm getting rather jealous of all the bloggers going out shopping for Autumn makeup so I decided to look through my makeup stash to see what Autumn appropriate products I could find in there. I suppose there is a plus side to not buying makeup this month after all! You will see that the majority of my picks are lip products as I find it easier to go bold on the lips rather than other parts of my face.

Maybelline Super Stay 10H Tint Gloss in Forever Coral (£6.99 at Boots)
I would liken this product to the YSL Glossy Stains as it's a glossy product applied with a wide, flat sponge applicator. You can build up the intensity of the colour by adding more layers and this dries to a beautiful, longlasting stain. I absolutely love the scent of this product too, it's like sweets! This is a lovely deep red shade, not a coral as it's name suggests but I think it's perfect for this season.

Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Scarlet (available on eBay)
You probably wouldn't think of lipgloss as an Autumn product but there are a lot of people who don't really like lipstick so I thought I'd include a lipgloss. Annoyingly it appears this shade may have been exclusive to QVC as I can only find it on eBay! I like this lipgloss as it's thick but not sticky and it's a lovely rose colour with berry toned shimmer in it.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable in Romantic (£7.99 at Boots)
Another red stain product but this time with an easy crayon style applicator. This shade is also more on the orange-red side and it's not as glossy. I love the minty scent of this one.

e.l.f. Jumbo Lip Gloss Stick in Flirty & Girly (£2.50 on the e.l.f. website)
This is a beautiful dark pink shade that glides on to the lips easily. I think it would be fab for an Autumn night out when you want a bit of a darker colour on the lips with some added sparkle. Really good value at £2.50 as well.

17 Supreme Shine Lipstick in Pink Posey (£4.99 at Boots)
This is a gorgeous plum shade that has a pigmented formula and a shiny finish. I couldn't find this shade on the website so I'm not sure if you can still get it in store or not but there seems to be some similar shades so it may be worth checking those out.

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Raspberry Pie* (£7.99 at Boots)
This deep berry shade just screams Autumn to me! It's super pigmented and has a glossy finish. It leaves your lips feeling hydrated too.

e.l.f. HD Blush in Diva (£3.75 from the e.l.f. website)
My blush collection consists of corals and light pinks so this is the deepest shade of blush I own. As you can see it's scarily pigmented and it would be fairly easy to look like a clown with this one however it's such a beautiful colour and when blended out it leaves a rosy look on the cheeks, perfect for the colder months.

Essie Nail Polish in Bahama Mama (£7.99 at Boots)
I've raved a lot about Essie nail polish on this blog so I'm sure you know how much I love the high quality finish and fab range of shades already! I normally wear really bright nail colours so I always feel quite sophisticated wearing this burgundy shade.

Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint in Pomegranate (£3.99 at Superdrug)
I just love this shade of nail polish as it's a beautiful shade of red. I'd describe it as a rich red shade with a hint of pink. It's so pretty.

Max Factor Max Effect Mini Nail Polish in Deep Coral (£1.40 on Amazon)
This is another product I've included in this post that has 'coral' in the name but isn't a coral! This is a shimmery, duochrome polish that is mostly a burnt orange metallic shade with gold when you catch the light. This colour really reminds me of the orange leaves falling from the trees in Autumn and I guess orange is a Halloween colour too. I just think it's a bit different from all the berry shades so I'm really liking it.

Hope you enjoyed reading about my Autumn picks!
