First up in my collection is Burberry. It had to be didn't it? If you haven't already read my review of my favourite Burberry products, you can read that here. Burberry lipsticks, like Burberry as a brand are just timeless and elegant. The packaging is to die for and the colours never cease to amaze me.
My favourite lipstick of the year is probably Burberry's new trench colour: no.26 - It is literally the best lipstick that I own in terms of colour, it makes my lips look bigger simply because it's a shade darker than your standard nude so instead of doing what most nude lipsticks do and making your lips look smaller, I find that this really emphasises my lips. Look out for this featuring on the blog again very soon as I can't get enough of it.
I love Dr. Hauschka, this brand is big on making natural beauty and skin products. I bought so many family members products from the Dr.Hauschka range last year (Harvey Nichols) and actually very well priced for such beautiful gifts. This Autumn Dr. Hauschka haven't disappointed with this beautiful lip colour.
Bottom: Dr. Hauschka's Lipstick Novum (no. 10) - If you're like me and you want to get in the Autumn spirit without feeling like you're dressing up for Halloween (I love deep purples but I'm not sure that I could ever pull them off and don't really have the confidence to wear them on a day to day basis) then this is the colour for you. I love the light yet burnt orange tones of this particular lipstick and I also adore the hint of shimmer. I think this is the perfect Bonfire night lip colour.
Lush Snow Fairy Lip Tint - This is one that I've had for a while (as you can tell by how dirty it is). It's probably not my favourite lip balm as it doesn't really moisturise at all, but in terms of lip tint, I think this gives the lips a gorgeous rosy glow, without being as bright as it is in the packaging. This gets a huge thumbs up from me because it smells so good. I am obsessed with all things Snow Fairy.
The Body Shop Lipgloss - Never under estimate lip glosses when it comes to choosing your Autumn lip shade. You don't have to wear a deep purple or dark red, I'm currently obsessing over lip glosses. I find that pretty, sparkly colours work really well in Autumn. I love this particular lipgloss from the Bodyshop, it perfectly fulfils my need for a hint of sparkle before we're into the Christmas season.
I have always been a fan of Becca lipsticks. I love their ultimate matte finish lipsticks and I'm forever scoping them out when I enter my local Space NK store. 'Josephine' is a beautiful and quite dramatic red colour whilst 'Adele' is more of a deep fuchsia. These colours look so different on the photo above as opposed to when they're swatched below.
Above are swatches of all the lipsticks mentioned. The top three being Burberry, then Dr. Hauschka, you can then see a hint of Lush Snowfairy and the bottom two colours are by Becca. As you can see, the Becca colours are extremely vibrant. I think my favourite out of all of these has to be Burberry's Nude Cashmere, just because I'm more of a nude girl. As you can see, my Autumn lip collection is tiny compared to my Summer Lip Collection so I've decided that I need to purchase some more lipsticks in the next few months.

Above is my moodboard and inspiration for lip colours this Autumn/Winter, here are some of the shades that I want to get my hands on. I almost purchased the whole L'Oreal website when I saw how many incredible new lipsticks they have out. Nars as always has some fantastic Autumn lipsticks.
Finally, I thought I'd leave a few photos of lip inspiration above. I am in love with Pinterest and I'm forever pinning my favourite beauty looks (find me here) so I had to share some of these photos with you. It's made me very tempted to try out a purple lip. The nude colour in the middle is actually my favourite Burberry Cashmere lipstick.
Are you a lipstick lover or do you play it safe? What shades are you loving this Autumn/Winter?
Lots of love, Em x
