Autumn Lip Wardrobe: Budget Edition


In one of my last posts I wrote all about an autumn eye wardrobe (here), now its time to move on to the lips! I wanted to make this a budget edition too as I have very few high end lipsticks as I want to be sure that they suit me first so I tend to stick to drugstore dupes.

Maybelline Colour Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil in Nude Perfection - now I know that this is meant to be an autumnal post but I couldn't resist putting at least one nude in, for those days when you are just not feeling a bold lip, this is my product of choice. Having being declared a dupe for the Nars velvet lip pencils they are quite hard to get hold of any of the shades but definitely worth it.

Maybelline Colour Sensational Matte Lipstick in Divine Wine - another helping from Maybelline, this time in the form of an actual lipstick it has only just made its way to my lipstick collection. This is a true autumnal colour with a lovely brown undertone which I feel would suit many different skin tones although definitely on the bolder side of things.

Nude Perfection

Divine Wine

Eva's Delicate Rose

Plum Russian


L'Oreal Colour Riche Eva's Delicate Rose - again I know this isn't an autumnal shade that you were all expecting, but what can I say I am a pinky nude girl through and through. Again I feel this shade is more appropriate for the autumn with a darkish undertone. Although one negative I would say about these lipsticks is that the smell might put you off, not one of my faves.

Bourjois Colour Boost in Plum Russian - back to the darker more plum based colours. This shade is a much darker lip shade but is not a matte formula, so if you like the look of the Maybelline one but finds matte lips uncomfortable to wear, maybe you should go for this one. I just love the colour of this one although I do find using a lip liner underneath makes it last a bit longer.

Revlon Colour Matte Balm in Sultry - I know, I know this isn't really your classic autumnal shade again but maybe I am just a little scared of the darker lip, I feel like everyones looking at them when I wear something bold. Anyway, this shade I like to wear when I'm going out, again it has a brownish undertone and has a bit of a Kylie Jenner lip look about it, which I love.

What budget lip colour would you recommend, I feel I need to be a bit more daring.

See you on Monday!
