Affordable Autumn Lipsticks

Autumn has finally arrived which means dark lips, thick scarves, hot drinks and snuggly blankets. It's one of my favourite seasons for make-up as I really love the effect of pairing up dark statement lips with golden warm eye shadow tones. So here are my top autumn lipsticks that I will be turning to this season that won't break the bank. 

I really love this red shade. It's luxurious and the packaging is great too. It looks and feels a lot more expensive than it actually is. I love matte lipsticks and this is a great affordable red to add to your autumnal collection. 

This shade is a deep berry tone in a matte formula. I have only ever tried this Sleek lipstick but it's great so I will be trying out more of the matte range. The name of this lipstick is 'vamp' which to me makes it the perfect autumn lipstick as Halloween is just around the corner! 

This product is my most expensive on the list and I would say this has a medium price tag but not quite high end. (I spent £35.00 on a lipstick the other day... oops). Mac lipsticks seem to be most girl's holy grail when it comes to matte lipsticks I only own this one as there isn't a Mac store anywhere near me but I LOVE it. It'd another berry/purple colour lipstick that is ultra matte. It's my go to night out lipstick or the perfect colour for a cold Autumn day. It lasts for agessss. 

4) NYX Matte Lipstick – Whipped Caviar £6.50
This shade is truly decadent. It’s a matte lipstick in a deep nude colour. I love this lipstick for a subtle colour throughout autumn. I highly recommend NYX lip products, just for the shear fact there is something for everyone. They have so many shades to choose from and offer them in different textures like gloss, butters, matte lipsticks, liquid lipsticks and more!

This buy was inspired by Zoella, as it's one of her favourite lip colours for the autumn too. It's a gorgeous berry red tone. It smells lovely and applies really nicely onto the lip. It's another great lipstick that lasts a long time without a heavy price tag.

What are your go to lipsticks for Autumn? Do you prefer drugstore or high end?

  1. I wear red lipstick everyday (my Mac Russian Red is the love of my life) but I've been meaning to branch out and try other products, especially ones that are a bit more affordable so this has been the perfect post for me! I love the look of the L'Oreal and Rimmel lipsticks, they have that darker touch that's perfect for A/W and definitely seem like good value for money so I'll have to check them out!
