Favorite Fall Lip Shades

Hello everyone!

My favorite season is Fall so I thought it was appropriate to write my first post about all the lip colors I've been loving lately. 

Few colors that I've really been in to are berry tones, dusky pinks, purples and maroons. I like a mixture of high end and drug store brands and I'm always on the hunt for a good dupe.

My first favorite is the typical vampy lip that's so popular for fall at the moment and I found a great drugstore one from NYX from their soft matte lip cream collection in the shade Copenhagen. These lip creams sit so comfortably on your lips and you can't even tell that you're wearing anything on your lips at all. They do dry down to a matte finish but don't dry out your lips at all, although I do always wear lip balm before applying it.

One of the other shades from the same NYX collection that I've been loving is 'Prague' which is a very pretty shade with purple undertones, quite similar to 'Too Faced Melted liquified long wear lipstick' in the shade 'Fig'.

A similar shade to NYX Prague but with more pink under tones is Lancome's 'Wannabe' in the 'cream' finish from their 'Color Design' collection which has a very smooth, balmy & creamy finish, it's also highly pigmented so one swipe is more that enough.

Lastly, on days where I don't want a bold lip or have a heavy eye look going on I tend to navigate to this one a lot which is from Rimmel the 'Lasting finish matte by Kate Moss' in the shade 104. I consider this a nude shade for me as the typical nude shades don't look good with my skin tone. Although this lipstick is supposed to be a matte finish it does have a bit of a sheen and I would describe it as a dusky rose color.

Another shade that I've been absolutely in love with but don't have it yet (it's on my wish list) is the shade 'Anna' from the new NARS 'audacious lipsticks' which is a similar shade to the Rimmel one but is more of a mauvey shade and is described on the Sephora website as a 'smokey rose'. So definitely can't wait to get my hands on that one!

So these are all the lip shades that I've been loving for the Fall, what have been your favorites lately? Any suggestions? Let me know in the comments!
