Top 10 Fall lips

Favorite Fall lips
Favorite Fall lips

The calendar tells us that it’s Fall. It’s a mixed blessing in many ways. Pumpkin Spice lovers will be thrilled with the amount of products that are now available. Cider Mills are open with that delicious fresh cider and tantalizing doughnuts. The leaves are starting to change and the colors will be spectacular. We’ll try to ignore how dark it is by 7:30 p.m. and that we need shorts in the day and a parka at night. But what we won’t ignore is the chance to change your lipstick wardrobe. Top Ten Tuesday is here to give you some suggestions of some lips to wear.

My personal favorites are the new PUR MINERALS LIP LURE LIQUID LIPSTICKS *. I have three of the five available and they are perfect for this time of year. These are very pigmented and the colors last for a long time. They are bucking the trend of matte (which is fine for me), instead saturating your lips with color while leaving them feel moisturized. ($22 each, full review coming up)

Another brand of lipstick that is new in my life is SLEEK MAKEUP, TRUE COLOR LIPSTICK *. These lipsticks come in either Sheen or Matte finishes for just $7.49. They are extremely creamy and feel great on my lips. Happily they are fragrance free. When you look these up on Sleek’s website they describe the lipsticks as well as give suggestions for which eyeshadow palette and blush would look great with them. More to come on Sleek MakeUP soon!

I like Nude lipsticks and find that there can be a difference between a summer nude and a fall nude. We all have different interpretations of nude and mine is a light shade but with fall I’ll go deeper. Three of my favorite nudes are Sleek MakeUP Succumb, Tom Ford Sable Smoke, and Charlotte Tilbury Penelope Pink.

Sleek Succumb is a brownish nude with pink undertones that looks much more pink on me than my swatch. Tom Ford Sable Smoke is a creamy peachy brown that’s not dark and can look different depending on which lipliner I use. Charlotte Tilbury Penelope Pink is the pinkest of the bunch but it’s not pink.

Dark lips aren’t easy for me to comfortably wear but I do love having some for those special times when I need to look more grown up. You never know when a plum, red, or brown red lipstick is going to up your game. Here are the ones in my collection:

VOTRE VU TATIANA * is a tomato red that I apply with a lip brush to get a softer look. SLEEK CHERRY is a deep vampy red. MELANIE MILLS GLEAM * in Unstoppable is a bright cherry red (photo doesn’t share the true red of this beauty. RIMMEL PROVOCALIPS * in PLAY WITH FIRE is a two sided liquid lipstick that’s a long wearing formula. It’s a beautiful true dark red with a clear sparkly gloss on the opposite end. PIXI BEAUTY MATTELUSTRE PLUM BERRY * is a hybrid of matte and lustre. This is a plummy red that doesn’t show lip lines like a true matte does.

I have so many more lovely fall lipsticks and totally forgot to take a picture of one of my all time favorites Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Plummy Rose though it is in my overall photo.

    I agree, fall is a mixed blessing. It’s COLD here today. I don’t want to wear a jacket yet. And the sun sets at 6:40 and by 7 it’s just about pitch black out. I am sick thinking that it’ll be dark at 4:30 in a couple of months 🙁 But yes, the lipsticks are lovely. The purminerals that you have are really speaking to me. I love that kind of applicator!

  23. Kat Dinges | 23rd Sep 15

    There are so many gorgeous shades and products here! I’m typically drawn to glosses/tinted glosses, or liquid lip products that stay liquid on the lip.

  24. Bailey | 23rd Sep 15

    Some really great shades! I just got the Pur lip thingee in Belle but haven’t dipped into it yet. Looks like a great shade.
