I adore women who rock a dark berry lip in autumn and the ones who post aesthetically pleasing photos of themselves on Instagram looking the definition of autumn.
Instagram has been my lipstick inspiration lately,i follow some absolute beauts on there,who are killing it with their style and makeup looks.You only have to scroll through my likes to see who they are,from halloween themed to everyday looks.
Since discovering the NYX brand a few weeks ago,i’ve been dying to try a few more of their shades out and since they are incredibly affordable and i’m on a tight budget i purchased 3 new lippies.
If you’ve read about my first NYX buys in my boots haul post you’ll have seen my lip swatches of stockholm,tantalizing taupe (maybelline) & spongecake .Stockholm is a soft matte lip cream,Tantalizing taupe 725 is a colour sen lipstick by Maybelline & sponge cake is a mega shine lipgloss,all three are beautifully pigmented and comfortable to wear.
This time i picked up 2 new soft matte lip creams & a matte lipstick in the following shades;
- Abu Dhabi – Soft matte lip cream
- Madrid – Soft matte lip cream
- Euro Trash – Matte lipstick
The lip creams are £5.50 each,an incredible price for good quality products in my opinion and the matte lipstick was £6.50.Not only are they like velvet,they turn matte when they dry down,they don’t transfer like crazy when you eat or drink anything.If you need to re-do your lippy when out and haven’t got a tissue to hand to wipe away any left over lipstick,don’t worry about it because they layer really well.They’re light-weight and comfortable to wear all day,everyday!
*NYX are a cruelty-free brand,certified and acknowledged by PETA.
Euro trash,the perfect berry nude.It glides on effortlessly and stays beautiful silky all day,i love how the tip is shaped,it helps with getting straight edges.If you love nude lips like me but want something to fit in with this time of year,this shade is perfect.I have to admit though the packaging could do with a rethink,i found the lipstick twisting downwards when applying it and make sure you hear a click once you’ve twisted it down and replaced the lid.(£6.50)
Abu Dhabi is a gorgeous nude on me,if you have pale skin it will suit you well.It was out of stock when i first brought from their stand,so i was really pleased to be able to try it out finally.I wear Stockholm near enough everyday now,it was a perfect transition colour from my pinky summer shades into my autumnal ones.It definitely has more of a pink undertone than Abu Dhabi does,which has more of a red/brown undertone to it.(£5.50 ech).
Now we all have that one lipstick,that when we wear it we turn into Katherine Pierce ,fierce,confident,could take on the world kind of lipstick!Madrid has me feeling all kinds of ways,it’s stunning and perfect for autumn.Not going to lie though,it was a tad streaky when i first applied it but once dry it was fabulous and much darker than i thought it would be.I can see myself wearing this right through Christmas too.(£5.50).
Lastly is the soap & glory sexy mother pucker matte-lip in the shade chocoberry, a creamy ultra matte lipstick available in 6 shades,chocoberry is a beautifully deep pink berry tone.I’ve tried their sexy pucker range before and i loved it,their formula is perfect and the way it plumps up your lips is like nothing i’ve tried before.Like the NYX matte lipstick,the tip is beautifully sculpted which helps with precision,it wears well,is light-weight and at only £3.50,go grab a bargain!
I hope these budget lipsticks inspire your autumnal choices,there is a whole range of different shades to choose from in each collection.
What affordable lipsticks are you loving this autumn? Let me know.
