My A/W Lips


I'm starting to slowly change up my makeup now ready for the colder months, the two main changes in trends I think are lips and nails.
I love a mixture of reds and nudes for this season, and I'm thinking of even having a hint of orange this next season! 

Up first is the nudes. I've been loving a nude lip recently as I just find them so easy to pull off and I feel like they look really quite chic.
Love Nude! by Makeup Revolution is part of their #happylips range and it's a pretty perfect MLBB shade. The argan oil around the outside keeps my lips nice and hydrated and the gorgeous pinky nude makes my lips look perfected.
08 is part of Rimmel's Kate collection and again, is a super gorgeous pink nude. I love the satin finish of this, plus it just seems to last forever!
The One by Makeup Revolution is very new to my collection but I've already fallen in love with it's super creamy texture and awesome pigmentation. Very much a "true nude"!

Onto the reds. Everyone needs a red lipstick in their life and with over 200 different shades that the human eye alone can see, I'm positive there's a red out there for everyone.
Bourdeux is part of the Maybelline Colour Sensational range and is a gorgeous dark red. It applies really nicely and isn't drying at all. It's not the longest lasting, but I don't mind doing a touch up!
160 is a super dark purple/red by Barry M. Although it's part of the Moisturising Lip Paint range, this seriously isn't moisturising and actually fairly hard to apply. However, it is a stunning colour.
Now Alarm is by Rimmel and a part of their Lasting Finish range. I love this colour, a real true red and just a real winner. It has a lovely texture, is easy to apply and lasts for quite a while before showing any wear!

Up last is something a bit different, I haven't actually seen orange on any A/W posts so far yet I feel like it's a nice shade for this time of year. Electric Orange by Maybelline is a seriously bright shade, but a light wash over the lips (or even applied over the top of a nude) is just a lovely wash of colour. Certain to banish those gloomy day blues!
