Autumn has fast approached us and it means one thing aside from Pumpkin Spiced Lattes, Uggs and wearing darker clothes - it's lipstick time. During the warm months it's easy to fall for lip oils, balms, sheer lipsticks and so on, but as it gets colder, for some reason women tend to pounce straight for lip colours. No matter what skin tone you have, these are some picks that will be suitable for everybody as there are a good range of deep reds to bright purples. Here are some of the best lipsticks you can get your hands on in both bullet and liquid form.
No matter the finish, you will always find a mix of luxury and drugstore lip products in every girl's Muji storage. If the formula is great it really doesn't matter what brand you use. Although I personally own about 12 Mac lipsticks, only half of them are colourful and you can pick up a lipstick just as good from L'Oréal and Seventeen. If you're looking for a gorgeous finished lipstick, try The Estée Edit's Mattified Lipsticks, which are silky and stay on the lips all day even without a lip liner. For pretty packaging it's obvious that Charlotte Tilbury, Revlon and Too Faced are high contenders as they really bring in the look of pure luxury. A brand you hear about daily but never in the lip department is Nars, whose Audacious lipsticks are divine and have magnetic packaging to ensure the lids stay on, even when at the bottom of your handbag.

There are two things that come to mind when you look at a liquid lipstick. The longevity and the packaging. Firstly, the formula should be made to last on the lips and it's taken a good few years for brands to get this right. The first ever liquid lipstick I tried was from MUA and it was gorgeous but it rubbed off completely when I ate churros at a Christmas market. Whilst lasting power is key, these products have the colour pay off without being too drying. I love being able to see the colour inside from the packaging, and mini products are so good for travelling with too. The Maybelline Color Drama Intense Lip Paints are amazing dupes for the Too Faced Melted lipsticks, and Stripped Down is so similar to Chocolate Milkshake too, with the latter being a bit darker. As far as Nyx goes, the Soft Matte Lip Creams, Liquid Suedes and the Lip Lingeries all have unreal formulas for such a great price.
When it comes to picking out Autumn lip colours, go for what you feel confident in. Just because there may be 'guides' on Pinterest telling you to only wear certain colours for your skin tone, it shouldn't stop you from wearing what you feel confident in. I only ever used to wear rad as you see iconic blonde haired, blue eyed women pulling off bright red shades but I feel more 'me' in an intense violet. I'm yet to find a true brown that suits me but there are plenty of brands to have a play around with. What are your favourite Autumn lip products and colours?
