My Top 5 Lipsticks for Autumn/Winter

dscn1467

So recently I have been particularly obsessed with lipsticks. In my case this means going to Superdrug every Friday and spending more money on makeup than on my groceries. I have a problem. But it also means that I found some really amazing lipsticks in colours that are perfect for autumn and that I will definitely continue wearing during winter time as well. I thought I would show you my top 5 lipsticks to give you some makeup inspiration. And if you are looking for new lipsticks then you will already know that these ones are really good!

So here are some swatches of all five lipsticks to give you an overview, and then I will write down the names and exact colours separately. (The order is the same as in the first picture!)

  1. Rimmel: The Only One Matte Lipstick – 200 Salute 

    This is probably the lipstick that I have been using the most. It is the perfect blush-nude matte colour, and the most longlasting lipstick I’ve used so far. It will stay on your lips for hours and hours, you might only need to reapply a little bit after you’ve eaten, but that is true for all lipsticks. So it is perfect for long days at work or uni. Also, this one smells incredible! To me, all lipsticks smell nice, but this one is especially lovely!

 

2. Maybelline: Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick – 50 Nude Thrill

This one is a really nice, bit more orange/brown-ish nude. It feels amazing on the lips, very soft and moisturizing. The only bad thing about this is that after you put it on you need to remove the excess to make it matte. But it is very longlasting and I absolutely love it!

 

3. Rimmel: The Only One Lipstick – 700 Naughty Nude

This one is a bit darker nude, and also a more pink-blush kind of colour. I know, four out of five of my favourite lipsticks are from Rimmel, but it is literally the only brand that I completely trust when it comes to lipsticks. I just love all of their colours and the quality is very good. And this new line called The Only One contains the most gorgeous lipsticks!

 

4. Rimmel: The Only One Lipstick – 800 Under My Spell

I have been looking for a berry-coloured lipstick, and when I came across this one I couldn’t resist it! I think the colour is absolutely gorgeous, and the lipstick feels very light-weight, not thick or sticky at all. You can’t even feel it on your lips, which is a good thing for me when it comes to darker colours. Perfect for autumn and also winter, I will definitely be wearing this colour, if not every day then every weekend at least!

 

5. Rimmel: Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick – 30

I’ve had this lipstick since last autumn, and I have been loving it since then! I do not wear this everyday as it is quite dramatic, but I think it’s perfect around the christmas time when you don’t really want to go for the bright red but rather dark burgundy kind of colour. I also bought a lipliner to go with this, and I would recommend you to do the same if you are not 100% comfortable with putting on dark lipsticks. Remember: practice makes perfect! 😉

 

I hope you all enjoyed this blog post! Let me know what lipsticks are your favourites for autumn/winter time, I’d love to know! Also let me know if you would like to see more posts like this in the future because I love doing them!

Tomorrow is the 1st of December! Who’s excited for opening advent calendars and watching Vlogmas videos every day? I definitely am 🙂 Hope you all have a lovely couple of weeks leading up to Christmas!

Everyday Makeup Tutorial for Autumn

In this week’s video I’m showing you how I do my makeup everyday during autumn. This is one of my favourite makeup looks as it is very easy to do, it is long lasting and I looove the colours.

Here’s a list of the products I used:

img_7281

  • Rimmel Fix & Protect Makeup Primer

As I said in the video this is such a good primer, it really makes a difference in how long your makeup lasts. Amazing!

  • Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation in light porcelain
  • Catrice Liquid Camouflage Concealer in porcelain
  • Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in transparent
  • Powder Brush from Alicia de Silva (Müller)

I wanted to feature my new powder brush in this video / blog post, because it was a bargain! I really needed a big brush, and when I saw this for about  £6 / 6,5€ I had to buy it. I wasn’t disappointed at all, I think it is perfect. You can find it in Müller stores in Europe.

Wow. So many recent puchases in this picture! (Also, I am so happy with how this photo turned out, isn’t it aesthetically pleasing?!)

  • Catrice Eyebrow Set

As I have recently started getting more into makeup, I have to admit that this is my first eyebrow product in a powder form. I know… it was just about time for me to get something like this, and I chose this one because the colours looked nice, it had a brush as well, and it was not expensive. And I absolutely love it! It’s nice to have the choice of two colours, because sometimes I feel like doing my eyebrows quickly with the lighter one, and sometimes I feel like creating really dark and bold eyebrows, and this is good for both.

  • Catrice Eyebrow Filler Gel
  • Catrice Prime and Fine Eyeshadow Base

Believe it or not, this is also my first eyeshadow primer. I used to think that it was enough to put some foundation or CC cream on my eyelids as a base, but I was completely wrong! Since I started using this, my eyeshadow literally doesn’t go anywhere during the day and the application is also easier.

  • Maybelline The Nudes Eyeshadow Palette

This palette was also a bargain, from a Rossmann store. It was on sale, and I needed a new eyeshadow palette with natural colours. These eyeshadows are very nice and pigmented, I was really satisfied!

  • Rimmel Eyeshadow Palette

I’ve had this palette for quite a while now, it just has some really nice colours that I like to use not only for autumn, but all year round as well.

  • Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara in intense black (forgot to put this in the photo – sorry!)
  • Rimmel Kate Face Palette
  • Avon Perfectly Matte Lipstick in au natural

This lipstick is really good quality and it was soooo cheap! It feels soft and moisturising on the lips, it doesn’t make them dry. Very long lasting as well, it doesn’t come off at all when you eat or drink. Perfect for every day!

Hope you enjoy the video, please let me know in the comments what kind of makeup you like to do for autumn or what colours you prefer! And don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel to see more videos from me.
