My Go-To Fall Lipsticks

Fall is the best season to bring out your darkest lipsticks, and that is exactly what I do. During any other season, I can't see myself wearing a vampy lip without it looking strange and wrong for the season. But Fall is finally upon us and I'm ready to share my favourite darker lip shades, that I've been waiting all year to wear, with everybody. Oh, and if you're wondering what that shimmery thing is in the bottom left corner of the photo is... It's a lil pumpkin that my little one made! 

Covergirl Lipstick in Euphoria / I randomly picked this up without hearing anything about this shade or the lipstick collection, but fell in love. It's an amazing berry shade that is really creamy and smooth. I was really impressed with the formula as it's a drugstore/affordable lipstick. When swatched beside MAC Rebel, they're almost exactly alike. I would say that Euphoria is a little more on the red side. So if you're on a budget and lusting over Rebel, definitely pick this one up.

MAC Lipstick in Rebel / If you're not on a budget though, go ahead and pick up this cult favourite. It really is a beautiful shade and I totally get why so many people love it. The finish is a satin which I like because it's not drying on the lips. That is especially great since the weather is changing and with the colder temperature, my lips gets drier/chappy. Since it's not a matte formula, it doesn't make my lips look like crap. 

MAC Lipstick in Stone / This may be a weird shade for some but to me, it's beautiful. It's a grey-toned brown with a matte finish. Like I mentioned, I tend to get drier lips so I have to moisturize really well when I use this. But regardless, I stand by what I said that it really is a beautiful shade. I've seen it worn on a bunch of different skin tones and it looks great on them all. If you don't own this one yet, you have to swatch it the next time you're at MAC. 

Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick in Vampira / This shade is a really vampy, dark red. Just like every other shade I've mentioned, it is gorgeous! I actually wore this yesterday for the first time this season and I fell in love with it all over again. I always say how my favourite liquid lipstick brand is Kat Von D because they doesn't dry my lips out at all, so this lipstick is a double win for me. 

Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick in Lolita / Seriously, who doesn't love Lolita?! It's another cult favourite and it's a shade that looks amazing on everybody. This shade isn't so dark, but I think it looks really pretty in the Fall season. It's a mauve/rose shade, which I am always drawn to, and again, it's a Kat Von D liquid lipstick.. So it's another winner for me! 

ColourPop Ultra Matte Lips in LAX / LAX is very similar to Vampira but it's a tad darker. They could definitely be dupes. I think this lipstick looks especially good on gloomier days. One of the best things about this, and the next two lipsticks, is the price point. They're very affordable, but they're still amazing quality products. 

ColourPop Ultra Satin Lips in TooLips / Just like Stone, this is a satin formula, which is great for Fall. In the swatch photo, compared to Stone, they look completely different. But in person, they look more similar. Stone is more grey toned, while TooLips is more on the plum side. It looks gorgeous on the lips and the formula of these satin lipsticks are really nice. 

ColourPop Ultra Matte Lips in Tulle / Last but not least, another mauve-y shade. This one is more on the darker side though, which I think makes it more Fall appropriate. I like to wear mauve shades all year 'round because I think it's the best shade to suit my skin tone. This is the perfect mauve option for the season to me.
