Going along with my favorite fall scents post, I wanted to do a post on my favorite lip colors for fall too! Updating your lip color is an easy way to change up your every day look for a new season. I like all of these colors because they look awesome with my skin tone. I don’t like to use deep plums and reds during the day because I’m a student and I would look way too made up for class. Also, the swatches look super shimmery in the second photo but I promise that they’re not that shimmery. When they set on your lips, most of them have a sheen to them, but no outright glitter. The first of the swatches is a NARS lip gloss in Paris Follies. This was limited edition but any gloss that isn’t shimmery and is semi-opaque with a darker tone is great. I like to layer this baby over a darker lip color so it lightens it a bit while adding shimmer. The next swatch is another NARS product, a Velvet Gloss lip pencil in New Lover. I love this one because it is pink with a subtle gold shimmer that makes your lips look more full but still natural. Next is a YSL Glossy Stain in number 4. I’ve had this gloss forever. Some people find the finish to feel like a sticker on their lips but I like the staying power and find that as long as I don’t slather tons of it on, it feels rather normal. And I love the plumy color that I can still feel comfortable wearing during the day. Next is my favorite by far. I wear this color year-round but I really love it in the fall. It is a Chanel lip stick in Caractere. This is a color that enhances my natural lips but it also doesn’t dry out my lips which is a HUGE plus. It has some glitter in it but it doesn’t show through at all when I apply it. If I could repurchase one thing from these products, it would be this one. The next one is another NARS product, it is a lipstick in the shade Pago Pago. I like this as a nude color because it doesn’t wash me out, and pairs perfectly with a more intense eye look for fall. This one does have some serious glitter in it but again, doesn’t really show up when applied. Then I have two MAC lipsticks, one in Capricious and the other in Creme in your Coffee. Capricious is more of a berry toned shade with no shimmer, and is not overpowering. Creme in your Coffee is a more brown toned shade that is great when you want a warmer natural shade for your lips. Finally, I included a Maybelline Color Sensational in the shade Let me Pink because I’ve had it forever but somehow, I keep coming back to it. It is a more intense version of Capricious so I like using it when I have a more natural eye look so it doesn’t have to compete for attention.
