Divine Dark Lipsticks

  • Seeing as Autumn has well and truely arrived, fashion magazines will dictate it's time to darken up your look. I have no problem with channelling my inner goth but don't really want to end up looking like Marilyn Manson.
  • Therefore, quality and quantity are both to be observed in achieving a balanced and pretty dark lip look. My favourite lipstick brand is definitely Guerlain. Their Kiss Kiss lippies are old school luxe with a gorgeous formula that's easily applied. They smell lovely and the colours are rich and beautiful.

  • If you don't care about the luxurious aspect, then try NYX Round lipsticks. I'd recommend Snow White for that dark Autumnal red wine look.

Lipgloss addicts should try this offering from Rimmel if you can find it.

Rimmel Volume Boost Liquid Lipcolour in Lavish (050)

I found mine in a discount store. It's very pigmented, has a glassy appearance and has that lip plumping tingle.

  • I have seen dark brown lips around this season but I'm sorry- ew! I loved trying on my Mum's Rimmel Heather Shimmerback in the day but now it just looks so dated to me. And noone wants to look like they've been felching!
