I typically don't wear a bold lip color--mainly because my lips are always dry no matter how much lip balm or lip treatments I use. But in the fall, on a full-face of make up day, the darker, bolder colors make an appearance! I put together some swatches and try-on pictures of my favorite colors, and let me tell you, I probably won't be doing something like this again in the near future! My lips were stained and raw after 8 lipstick changes! Hope you enjoy and find a new color to try for the season!
MAC Stripdown Lipliner with MAC Velvet Teddy Lipstick
This is my more "everyday" combo because it has a brownish-mauve tone, but definitely is subtle enough to go with any make up look or for any occasion. It is also a great formula that looks matte, but isn't drying.
Savvy Minerals by Young Living Journey Lipgloss (worn over Velvet Teddy & Stripdown)
To give a glossy look, I added a new gloss from Young Living that is also a brown tone. It pairs perfectly with Stripdown & Velvet Teddy and just gives a nice subtle sheen over the top. Plus the gloss smells like peppermint!
Kylie Cosmetics Lipkit in Dolce K
This is a brand new purchase for me but has quickly become one of my top 3 lip colors! It has a brown tone without being too much. This shade works for any occasion and is a nice cooler toned brown that is very wearable! It is a matte liquid lipstick, but is very comfortable to wear, even on drier lips.
Dose of Colors Stone Liquid Lipstick
Whenever I wear this color, I ALWAYS get asked what it is! I discovered this color years ago when it became a staple for one of my favorite YouTubers, and it has also become my #1 go-to for any time of year! It has a purplish tone to it, but is also neutral enough to go with anything! Again, it is a matte liquid lip, but super comfortable to wear!
I am a huge fan of MAC lipsticks, and this shade is no exception! It is the perfect mauve-brown, and is an amazing matte finish. It is a little drying on the lips, but with a small about of lip balm underneath, it is totally doable. (For any of these matte lipsticks, it is also smart to exfoliate your lips beforehand by using a lip scrub, or even just a warm washcloth!)
Kat Von D Lolita Everlasting Liquid Lipstick
I LOVE Kat Von D's make up! Every product I have tried has been a winner, but especially these liquid lip colors. The formula applies smoothly and evenly, and is buildable to make the color as pigmented as you'd like! It also wears through most meals and drinks (I've been able to wear all day to work and it still looks great at the end!) This brownish-mauve is just a bit darker than the others, but still isn't too intense that you can't wear it during a normal workday!
Kylie Cosmetics Lipkit in Clove
This is another new purchase, but I instantly fell in love with this color! The lipliner applies so smoothly, as does the liquid lipstick! It gives a pretty intense reddish-brown color, but is just perfect for the fall & holiday seasons! I can't wait to wear this one out!
MAC Rebel Lipstick
Rebel is an old love of mine! This was one of my very first MAC lipsticks that I bought and I just love how bold of a color it is! It is a bright-plum color and it goes so wonderfully with a nice neutral brown or smokey eyeshadow look, and gives a great pop of color for this time of year! It is also super comfortable to wear.
MAC Media Lipstick
This is a new shade for me, and it is definitely one of the driest lipsticks of the bunch, but it has a great deep maroon color! I typically don't wear this dark of a color, even in the cooler months, but this color would make a great statement for a night out! It does take a couple of layers to build up the color. Be bold! Give this one a shot!
I really hope that you enjoyed this post, because I love sharing my favorite make up with you guys! The eyeshadow look in these pictures was done using one of the new Jaclyn Hill eyeshadow palettes, so that little tutorial will be coming up soon! Let me know if you try any of these lip colors or what some of your go-tos are for the fall!
