Bold lipsticks for Autumn/Fall

Bold lips? For Autumn? Groundbreaking. 

I know. Painfully clich├ęd. But there you have it. I love me some juicy dark lips when the weather turns. I've got five gorgeous tones pretty much on rotation at the moment, to the point that the lip staining left behind makes it look like I'm still wearing one of these bad boys at 8am the next day.

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Lips in Show Girl has been a grower for me. I really wasn't sold on the moussey texture at first, and it applies much darker than initially expected; but now the nights are a-drawing in I find myself reaching for it more often. It's on the less challenging end of dark berry lips, so it may be a good option if the next few firecrackers are a bit out of your comfort zone.

MAC Chili is a glorious brown-orange-red that just screams millennial autumnal perfection. It's a classic MAC creamy matte formula, so it's very comfortable and pretty long wearing. I'm on my second tube of Chili, and that basically never happens. With some decent mascara and a good base, you can't go wrong. If you like your brown-reds a bit, well, more red, then Colourpop's Ultra Satin lips (my absolute favourite liquid lipstick formula) in the shade Lost is a real winner. It's juicy, satin, matte, lasts for ages and is easy to apply.

Then we have the vamp-tastic end of the spectrum. As much as I am not a Jeffree Star fan, there's no denying that Unicorn Blood is the most gorgeous, deep, wine-red tone. I like the formula - I find it minimally drying and pretty long-wearing - but mainly I just love this colour! Dior's gorgeous Liquid Lip Stain in Poison Metal takes all the prizes for ultra-deep tones, however. The link here posts to a lip swatch - its metallic, vampy, easy to apply and super comfortable. I'm sold.
