Considering it's not quite the time to whip the Ugg boots out again, I'm going to share my favourite transitional lip colours that are autumnal, but not your standard deep purples that are so popular for the autumn/winter time. These lip colours are more along the lines of berries and mauves, which I absolutely love. I don't suit reds and dark purples very well so I tend to stick with the types of colours I'm showing you here. So let's jump in!
YSL Rouge Volupte #9, €33
The quality of these lipsticks are indescribable - they're so soft and buttery, they just glide on your lips in one opaque swipe. What I love most about this lipstick for Autumn, is that it can be worn with a dramatic eye look or played down make-up. It's a perfect choice for however you like to wear your make-up. And just look at that packaging! Swatches of all the lippies are at the end of the post!
Essence 'Wear Berries' Long Lasting Lipstick, €2.79

Rimmel London 1000 Kisses 'Wine' Lip Pencil, €4.65
I love good quality lip liners that are creamy enough to use all over the lips, as sometimes I prefer the colour of lip pencils to actual lipsticks! This 1000 Kisses lip pencil from Rimmel is one of my favourite autumn/winter shades as it's so versatile and compliments pretty much every eye look. Sometimes I wear this on its own with a brown lipgloss over it, or I recently found out it looks beautiful underneath the YSL Glossy Stain which I will be showing you next! The best thing about using a lip pencil is that even when you eat or drink it'll have better staying power than a lipstick. I would definitely recommend checking out the Rimmel lip liners even if this shade is not for you, they have a fantastic colour selection!
YSL Glossy Stain #4, €33
Dirty Dancing Make-Up Of The Night. This lip stain is probably one of my all-time favourite lip colours - it's not something that I would usually go for but I love it so much! The only way I could describe this colour is a red-purple-wine shade. It's quite difficult to describe as it's such a unique colour. I love this for autumn/winter as it's one of those lip products that you have complete control over - you can choose whether the colour is nice and sheer or bold and bright. With these glossy stains, you just keep layering until you get the colour you desire. I know this shade will be my absolute go-to colour for this autumn/winter!
Max Factor Lipfinity Lip Tints, €8.99
I absolutely love the Max Factor lip tints for autumn/winter as the colours are just so gorgeous but they're not too overpowering. These are my two favourites, but their names are completely wrong - when you look at the swatches below you'll know what I mean! The names don't match the colours at all.
My favourite lip tint is Royal Plum, as it really suits my complexion and makes your teeth look super white! Although the colour is called Royal Plum, as I said earlier, the name is totally off. To me, this is more of a cherry colour. But still beautiful none the less! Just don't be fooled by the name!
I have been reading other bloggers' reviews of this product and I've seen many girls express their concerns over how quickly their lip tint dried out. I have had my two for about a year or so now and I still find that they perform the same! Perhaps it's something to do with storage? Anyway, I would totally recommend checking these out the next time you're at a Max Factor stand!
