The Autumn Lip Line-Up

It's well and truly Autumn now so I thought I'd put together a little edit of Autumn lip products. I've included something for every budget and formulation preference so hopefully you'll see something you like!

Rimmel Apocalips Lip Velvet in Meteoric Matte (Boots £6.49) // This is your perfect budget matte lip. If you like wine toned shades, this might be the one for you! The lipgloss style applicator makes it easier to get a precise lip line too.

Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede in Muse (Boots £8.99) // Scared of bold lips? This sheerer formula will allow you to add some colour without too much pigmentation. It has a satin finish too so you don't need to worry about it smearing or drying your lips out.

NARS Audacious Lipstick in Janet (Space.NK £24) // The luxury buy and my favourite of the bunch. I've been loving this so much! It has a super long lasting, satin finish in a gorgeous berry shade that looks absolutely stunning for this season. I even wore this on a trip to Asda the other week! Well, got to get my money's worth... and it is worth the money!

e.l.f. Lipstick in Gypsy (e.l.f. £1.95 - sadly the colour doesn't seem to be on the website anymore but there should be similar options) // The cheapest of the bunch but still a fab product! It's another wine kind of shade in a satin finish that seems more expensive than it is! My only criticism would be that the packaging is a little hard to twist but that's only a minor issue. This just shows you can definitely switch up your makeup for this season on a small budget.

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Glam Plum Fulham (Boots £6.49) // A gorgeous deep plum lipstick with a super moisturising formula. One for those who prefer a more glossy finish but still want a very pigmented look.

Maybelline Baby Lips Electro in Berry Bomb (Boots £2.99) // Maybe you're not a lipstick lover and prefer something a little more subtle. You can stick rock (slightly) berry lips with this lip balm. This will add a subtle tint to the lips and it smells so good! Very fruity!

MAC Lipstick in Girl About Town (Debenhams £15.50) // I couldn't not include a MAC lipstick really! I don't own the classic Rebel shade but I think Girl About Town is a nice alternative Autumn lip. It's pink with a touch of berry and it's in my favourite finish, Amplified, so it's very pigmented and smooth to apply. Beautiful!

Sleek True Colour Lipstick in Mystic (Boots £4.99) // The brightest pick and it's a full on purple. Not for the faint-hearted but it's sooo good! This is a great one for a night out and will stick around after several cocktails as it's a matte one.

The swatches below are in the same order as the product line-up.

What do you think of my Autumn lip picks?
What will you be wearing on your lips?
