Autumn Lip Picks

I’ve recently been rotating between two lipsticks – one for an everyday look, and one for a slightly bolder, evening look. The two in question are MAC Fashion Revival, and Bobbi Brown Art Stick in Rose Brown. Both are easy to wear shades and have plenty of lasting power – plus I feel like even a bad skin day can be reflected away with a bold lip!

Ive posted a few pictures on Instagram recently and have been asked about the lipstick shades – so I thought I’d dedicate a post to the two lip products. MAC’s Fashion Revival is a dark plummy colour with a Matte finish. It applies evenly and is very opaque, it’s also unforgiving so don’t try applying it while you are on the run! Once it is on, however, it’s on for good. It fades evenly after a good few hours of wear – thanks to the intense pigmentation. MAC Fashion Revival even helped me win House of Fraser’s #FearlessFriday competition last week! Here’s the winning post:

Bobbi Brown’s Rose Brown Art Stick is easier to apply on the go – the crayon is creamy and heavily pigmented, but also very blend-able. I’m in love with the shade – it completes my Autumn looks without being overpowering, and seems to go with everything! I’ve tried Clinique and NARS but the Bobbi Brown sticks are creamier, more wearable and long lasting, plus they don’t creep into my fine lines. I didn’t originally plan to buy it, but after trying sample in Selfridges and then receiving compliments from strangers (this never happens!!) I decided to go back and buy it, and I’m so glad I did! The shade is a grown up, rosy mauve colour and I think would be flattering to most skin tones. They come with their own sharpener (thank the lord!) which makes up for the odd shape and retail at £19 exclusively from .

What are your favourite Autumnal lip shades?
