Maybelline Matte Color Sensational Lipstick in Mesmerizing Magenta
This shade is a new purchase for me and I have already fallen head over heels for it. It is a blue based magenta shade that is an absolute stunner. The matte finish formula feels comfortable on the lips, doesn’t settle into any lip lines and lasts ages even through eating and drinking. For $8.99 I think I have found my new favourite lipstick line from the drugstore and can’t wait to try more.
YSL Volupte Sheer Candy in #5 Mouthwatering Berry
There is no denying that YSL is just the epitome of luxury. Everything from it’s gorgeous packaging to it’s stunning colour selection is swoon worthy. I purchased this lipstick last year when I was on the hunt for the perfect Fall lipstick and I couldn’t wait to pull it out again this year. This gorgeous berry shade has a glossy, balm like finish that it perfect for those who are looking for a nice wash of colour (full review here).
MAC Matte Lipstick in Fashion Revival
When taking a quick peek through the lipsticks at the MAC store, my eyes instantly were drawn to this shade. It doesn’t look like much at first glance, but when applied it turns into this gorgeous dark berry colour (do you see a theme here?) that I can’t help but love. The longevity is fantastic, the colour is phenomenal and it doesn’t feel drying on the lips. I have to say, I am really liking matte lipsticks at the moment!
MAC Satin Lipstick in Rebel
I bet you aren’t surprised to see this on my list, am I right? This is one of MAC’s staple shades for Fall and for good reason (full review here). While this may look scary in the tube, much like the other shades above, when you apply it to your lips it turns into this stunning dark berry shade and the hint of fuschia gives it lots of dimension. It is much more wearable than I thought it was going to be at first glance and I always get compliments every time I wear this out!
If you are wanting to rock a bolder lip this season then I highly suggest going for it! A few years ago I was strictly a lip gloss kind of girl and when I first started getting into lipsticks it never occurred to me that I would love darker shades as much as I do. Makeup is all about experimentation, and you never know how much you may love something until you try it!
