It’s been a while, two weeks tomorrow to be exact but I am back. I have had my surgery and other then coming out with Rosacea all over my body I am now feeling back to normal.
Today’s post is going to be a quick round up of the top three lipsticks I have been using throughout the Autumn period. Each one has a more comfortable price point of under £7.00 and work like a dream.
NYX Soft Mate Lip Cream £6.00 (8ml)
The soft matte lip creams have been one of my latest purchases’, I have never used a Nyx lip product before and I am impressed.
The shade I have been using the most is Stockholm, it’s a lovely pink based nude that compliments my fair skin well. I often have trouble with more brown/cream based nudes as they can be to harsh on my paler complexion or wash out my lips completely. I need something with a slight pink in to add some warmth and Stockholm does this perfectly.
I am really enjoying the formula with these soft mattes. It is a little creamier then other liquid lips I’ve used and applies as soft and smoothly as a traditional lipstick. From me this lip cream dries down but does not dry completely, which has been great during the Autumn weather as a full matte would ruin the condition of my lips.
I chose this particular colour as, during Autumn I do like to be a bit braver with the darker colours eye shadow wise and I like to balance the look with a more nude lip.
Overall I would give these a big recommendation Their shade range is large so there is something to suit everyone, they have a good price point for the size of product and during the colder months I am enjoying having a liquid lip effect without my lips becoming overly dry.
Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate £5.49
I bought this when I did my guest post over on Kate Day’s A Week. I needed something that fitted into my full face of make up for under £30 challenge and since then I have not stopped using it.
The shade I have is number 30 (light purple/plum shade) and it is fantastic for the Autumn to Winter period. It’s a bold shade so I go a bit less on the eyes and let the lips be the focus point but it is very wearable for both day and night.
I have recently been buying more high street make up in a effort to be frugal and the Rimmel long lasting lipsticks have surprised me. They have great staying power and I often only reapply once a day. They apply really well and have good pigmentation so you don’t have to keep building the colour.
Hint: I use a liner for the more bold colours in the range as they do bleed slightly so the liner helps keeps this under control.
Since using the Rimmel lasting lipstick for my Make up Challenge I have actually purchased a few more shades from the range due to how well they work.
Maybelline Colour Sensational £6.99
The colour sensational from Maybelline has such a high volume of shades available within the range and it is easy to see why they stuck with this formula. These lipsticks glide on so softly and effortlessly it is hard to make a mistake with them.
The formula is lovely and soft and the texture is more like a lip balm then a lipstick, yet they have an amazing colour pay off. Throughout the Autumn these have become my go to as they feel a lot more moisturising for my lips in the colder months.
The shade I have been using the most is Stellar Pink which is a pink/mauve with a frosted effect. Granted the frosted effect is not for everyone but it is quite subtle and resembles a top coat of gloss more then a metallic lip. I have been using this shade when I have created a strong eye look but don’t want to use a basic nude.
I have quite a few of the colour sensational and when looking for a more affordable lipstick I would always gravitate towards using these as they are good quality for the price.
Do you have any Autumn Lipsticks you couldn’t live without? Have you altered your lipstick due to the weather? I’m trying to use less matte liquid lips as they are really messing with my lips condition in this cold. Let me know in the comments section down below and we can all start discussing.
Next post will be Friday. Wishing everyone a good week.
