A fun, festive holiday look for the 2017 season!
The other night, I decided to take inventory of my lipstick collection and make some swatches for references. I have swatches of nudes, pinks, red, and purples here. I didn’t swatch my “weird” colors (blacks, greens, blues, browns, gold, etc.), though. All-in-all I have approximately 124 lipsticks… yeah, a lot. Next time I think to myself “oh, I need that lipstick,” I should definitely take a second and remind myself that, no, I do not need more lipstick. In these photos, liquid lipsticks are on the left and bullet lipsticks are on the right.
Clearly, I have a soft spot for nudes and purples. No surprise there, really. Purple is my favorite color and I think I pull it off well. This totally goes against what I said earlier, but do you think I have any holes in my collection? I have since added two reds from Beauty Bakerie since these photos. My Aromi reds were the first ones I bought and I think they’re getting a little old and might have to be tossed soon. I plan on trying out the new TooFaced liquid latex formula, too, but need to decide on which color exactly. And then I’m promptly going on a lipstick no-buy.
Autumn brings bold, dark makeup looks and the easiest place to pull it off is on your lips! For extreme staying-power, I prefer liquid lipstick formulas. I’d like to point out that I wasn’t sent any of these products – I bought them all on my own. Here are some of my favorite liquid lipsticks for fall!
ColourPop’s Beeper (Warm Taupe) – A great neutral-brown shade. I purged a bunch of my CP liquid lipsticks that I didn’t reach for or if I had a similar color in a better brand. This one, though, has remained a favorite of mine.
Lime Crime’s Saddle (Brown) – A rusty-brown color. I was a little nervous how this one would look on me, but I actually love it.
Aromi’s Vamptastic Plum (Dark Plum) – I loooove purple lips. This is probably the shade that I rock the most.
Makeup Monstor’s Bewitched (Burgundy) – Just got this one, but I love it already! Makeup Monster’s formula is soooo good and their price is unbeatable. Seriously, check them out.
Aromi’s Red Dahlia (Deep Red) – A nice, vampy red is a must for fall. I love my Red Dahlia shade from Aromi. And the tubes are different, because they upgraded the packaging. This is the newer look.
Lime Crime’s Pumpkin (Red-Orange) – What would fall be without some pumpkin orange? This is surprisingly wear-able.
What are some of your favorite liquid lipsticks to rock in the fall? I’d love to hear some of yours!
