Lately, autumn has become a special kind of awesome for me. I have a new appreciation for the slightly frosty air, the single leafs floating in the wind and then landing on the damp ground. The colors, the sounds, the vibe. I truly like everything about it.
Now, summer was for neons and all sorts of "Kapow!" colors, but autumn brings back the flesh tones and the calmer shades that just make you go into a state of being blissfully content.
The Nude Tones:
You can't have autumn without flesh colors.It's the epitome of the season. That's why clear picks for this are the Revlon Lip Butter in Creme Brulee and Rimmel Apocalips in Nude Eclipse. Let's face it, I'm a big fan of the nude all year round, and autumn just gives me an extra seasonal excuse to use and overuse them.
The Apocalips is more on the lipstick side of things and has much more coverage, but the Revlon Lip Butter is well... a lip butter and that means it may be a bit more sheer but it hydrates your lips much much more. They're basically the two extremes of the tone.
I must admit, I did see an even more extreme sheer today tho, in the shape of a Maybelline lip butter dupe (I'd suppose that's what it was, I don't remember the description). And when I say sheer, I do mean sheer. You could only see something shining because no color was appearing. More on that if I ever give it a go in any case.
I find coral tones to look so beautiful in autumn! For the matte fans, we have the Topshop Lip Crayon in Coy which I've done a full review of Here. And again, for the more sheer version, Topshop is happy to oblige too with its Lip Bullet in There She Goes. That one also feels really hydrating on the lips and it has a summer nostalgic shimmer to it. It's really one of my favorite shades and I'll review it for you soon.
Those were my top picks for lip beautification this autumn, what are yours?
