I think it's about time I talk about my favourite drugstore autumn/winter lipsticks. I've tried and tested them over the last few months and I've picked out the ones I've been using every time I do my makeup. I generally love warmer tones on my lips and come autumn, I am already excited and over the moon. I go ahead and buy a ton of lipsticks even if I own the same shades from before but what matters to me more than the shade is the texture and feel of the lipstick on my lips.
Let me start with the lightest in the group - Amazing Lipstick in 'Treat' by a very loved brand, Makeup Revolution because their products look and feel like they're very good quality. I've only just discovered about the buzz around this lipstick being a very popular 'my lips but better' shade and I can't believe I'm only just catching up because this one's become a pretty much everyday shade for me. It's also a very medium nude shade, not too light or too browny. It reminds me of Charlotte Tilbury's Kissing Lipstick in Stone Rose. I don't own the lipstick but I've seen the swatches and people wearing it and it looks quite similar to me.
Next up is an old favourite and it's one of those that I repurchased when I lost my first tube. That's a rare thing for me to do with makeup because I generally like to try new things and very rarely repurchase lipsticks. It's Revlon's Colorburst Lipstick in Peach. I've had this one for a long time now and I whip it out every autumn because it's one of those throwback peachy shimmer shades from the 90's(Think Britney Spears in 'Oops I did it again'). I feel like it's the perfect peachy/orange toned lipstick I've tried and the shimmer is actually very fine and not as evident as it looks in the tube. It is a subtle way to try out the frosted lipstick trend again.
Third one's Makeup Revolution's Lip Hug in Saviour will come. This is a beautiful rust shade lipstick and although I'm a big fan of rust colours in clothing and makeup what sold me on this lipstick is how moisturising it is! It honestly feels like a lip balm on my lips but has the colour payoff of a lipstick and does it's job damn well at that. It tends to move and disappear after a few hours of eating and drinking but I think it's perfect if you have super dry lips in the drier months and can't handle glosses. It has a slight sheen texture but it's not overly glossy. I can't wait to own more pretty shades of these Lip Hugs.
The last and darkest shade of all is Maybelline's Color Sensational in Wine Festival which as described is a beautiful deep burgundy shade. It is completely matte, quite wearable on the lips and stays on for a good amount of time. I've worn it in quite a few of my outfit posts as well because it's such a nice, statement lip without being the traditional red.
