I love a bold lip, and nude lips of course, but bold lips are something I like to change by the season and come autumn, the darker the better. In my October favourites video, I was sporting a dark muted mauve (Yves shade 107 Mauve), and much more recently there’s been a new favourite dark autumnal shade in town. So I thought it was time to introduce you to my current go-to Autumn/Winter lip products.
Red lips are always a winner, so if I’m feeling daring, the darker red tones of Ruby Woo by MAC (far left) look perfect on nights out with an all black outfit. I find the matte finish fits really well with the heavier coverage foundations I tend to lean towards in the winter months. If I’m feeling not so daring, I’ll pick up my Barry M lipstick in shade 152 (far right), a more warm toned version of the Yves lipstick in shade 107. Both are lovely if you want a slightly darker lip, but don’t feel comfortable with deep plums or black.
My favourite of the bunch is a more recent purchase… One I hunted down as this shade sells out even faster that the classic red or nude shades! The Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in shade 107 (yes another shade 107, weird I know!) looks absolutely gorgeous on a variety of skin tones, it’s also perfect for the current season so I had to grab it. I love a bold lip colour that looks great with minimal make up as well as a full face, and this does just that, making it super wearable as I never feel over done.
So, what do you think, bold lips or nude lips for Autum/Winter? I think the bold lip is definitely winning it for me this year…
