Hi beauties! For today’s post, we have the long-belated collab that Hanna from Lipstick Lovely and I have been working on and waiting to post for ages now! We couldn’t coordinate our schedules and we kept missing each other (when I went to Canada, when she went on vacation, etc) but we finally managed to find a week that worked for both of us! You can check out her post here.
For my post, I’m doing my top five fall lipsticks. I was originally going to do more than these five, but after a lot of careful thought, I eliminated some of the other contenders and ended with just these five. I did think to include some of the Wet n Wild lipsticks I talked about in my last post but since I was taking the pictures for those at the same time, I totally forgot to include them! I’ll add in a little mention at the end for the ones I would’ve chosen.
Here we have the five I chose for my favorite fall lipsticks! In no particular order, they are Too Faced Melted Lipstick in Melted Berry, OFRA Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Santa Ana, Sephora Lip Stains in Blackberry Sorbet and Marvelous Mauve, and ColourPop Lippie Stix in Frida.
And some swatches! From left to right, these are Frida, Marvelous Mauve, Santa Ana, Blackberry Sorbet and Melted Berry. I apologize for the weird lighting, I did my best to tinker with it but this was the best I could get it to! If anyone wants better swatches, comment with your twitter and I can post something later!
I tried my hardest to pick more than just berry red shades, even though that’s usually what I want to go for in the fall. I just love a deep berry color on the lips this time of year! I’m not really one to only wear lipstick seasonally but that’s just what I’ve been in the mood for lately.
Melted Berry is that exact deep red berry shade that is absolutely beautiful, it’s dark but not overpowering and still bright enough to pass for a red lip. Santa Ana is a lighter red with a little pink in it (it’s a beautiful color and so hard to describe!!) and Blackberry Sorbet is a dark, totally vampy and totally gorgeous shade. Lastly, Marvelous Mauve is… exactly what it sounds like, actually! It’s a beautiful dark mauve color (it looks darker on the lips than on the tube sometimes) and Frida is a beautiful slightly peachy nude that is still deep enough for fall.
I obviously picked all of these because I love them, but if I had to rank them in my preferred order, it would go: Melted Berry, Santa Ana, Marvelous Mauve, Frida, and Blackberry Sorbet. This was really hard to pick though! There were at least five contenders that were left out of the race… or whatever this is.
I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Don’t forget to check out Hanna’s fall favorites post to see what she wrote about! What are your favorite fall lip products?
