Fall is my favorite time of the year for lipsticks. I know there are lots of lipsticks out there, but I think I have compiled some great options for you guys. The best part is they are all under $10. I also think these would look great on all skin tones.
Sonia Kashuk Velvety Matte Crayon in Raspberry Nude ($8)- This is a good option for those who do not prefer vampy colors. It’s more of a bright pink with a hint of berry. Not sure why the name includes nude. There is nothing nude about this color, pure raspberry. I love these lipsticks. They have a great matte formula. You can purchase this item at Target.
Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss #107 ($6)- This is a great reddish berry option. It has a semi-matte finish and applies very smoothly.
Maybelline Lip Studio Color Blur in Plum, Please 35 ($9)- I think this may be my favorite out of all of these options. If you were to purchase any of these I’d recommend this one! This is such a pretty burgundy color. When I think of Fall, this is the first color that comes to mind. This also applies very smoothly and has a matte finish. It’s very similar to NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen, but this one is more pigmented and easier to apply.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania ($6)- This one is for all my vampy girls out there. Transylvania is a deep deep purple. It reminds me of NARS Velvet Lip Pencil in Train Bleu. It’s a little streaky so it can be difficult to apply. I recommend you to apply one layer, let is set for a minute, and then apply another layer. DO NOT rub your lips together. It will mess up the whole application.
I hope this was helpful. I did not wear a lip liner or primer. I wanted you to be able to see the true color. All of these lipsticks have great formulas. For the most part, they all have a creamy matte finish. You could always apply a little bit of translucent powder on top for an even more matte look.
Let me know what your favorite lipsticks for Fall/Winter are. Sephora’s Cream Lip Stain in Blackberry Sorbet is on my list to purchase. I’m sure it would have definitely been on this list! Some of the ColourPop Ultra Matte Lipsticks are also on my list to purchase.
I will also be doing a blog post including my favorite high end choices.
