Top Autumn/Winter Lip Picks

It's no secret that I love a bold lip. I really love going for a much darker berry or deep red lip in the colder months.
I know a lot of people are really nervous about wearing a dark or bold lip colour but the Autumn and Winter months are the perfect time to try it out! Hopefully this post will give you a little idea of where to start.

Rimmel Apocalips Lip Laquer in Across the Universe

Apocalips Lip Laquers are one of my favourite lip products. They apply like a lip gloss and are very easy to work with but after  half an hour or so, they dry in leaving a fairly matte finish.

Across the Universe is a bright, bold red which is perfect for brightening up a basic daily makeup look.

Rimmel Apocalips Lip Laquer in Eclipse

Eclipse is a much bolder, purple shade. It's quite a draining colour so you really have to balance your complexion out with blush and bronzer. This is one of my favourite lip colours but it's definitely not a shade to go for if you're not comfortable with darker lips. 

MAC - Amorous

This is only a recent addition to the collection but I love it like I've been using it for years. 

I just adore the colour of this lipstick. It reminds me of a darker version of NYX Tea Rose. This is a Satin lipstick so it's matte but very moisturising and creamy - much like NYX Matte Lipsticks. 

Is this not the perfect Autumn lip colour?!

NYX Matte Lipstick in Tea Rose

This has made quite a few appearances on the blog recently and for many good reasons.

This is such an easy to wear nudey, purpley, pink (thank goodness for visual aids)

It's extremely easy to wear and is suitable for all year round but I think it looks really nice with winged eyeliner when you're all wrapped up in a coat and scarf.

NYX Matte Lipstick in Merlot

I have such love for this lipstick. It's another reddish shade but you can't have too many dark red lipsticks. 

It looks a lot darker in real life, unless my display is amped up a little too high. Either way, it's a perfect lipstick for this time of year.

(I had to use old photos of my NYX lipsticks on my lips or I would have been left with no lips after 5 colour changes)

 Rimmel Kate Moss 107

This dark red matte lipstick has a bit of a cult following. Last year it was EVERYWHERE. You couldn't click into a post without seeing it mentioned. 

It's very long wearing but a little drying. The lady who helped me out in MAC the other day though I was wearing the lipstick Diva so I guess it might be a little dupey?..

It actually looks a little darker in real life but it's definitely a red as opposed to a purple tone. 

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Frambourjoise

This is still a bold lip colour but not as dark as most of the ones I've mentioned. If you want a really easy to wear off-red, you should give this a try.

Rouge Edition Velvets are liquid lipsticks so they apply like a gloss then set like a matte lipstick. You have to work very carefully with them because any product that goes outside the lines, stays outside the lines. 

This is another very long wearing colour but it is slightly drying. I find you have to apply it in one good layer rather than dip the applicator back into the bottle and pop on another layer or it gets a little chunky on the lips which feels very uncomfortable.

I hope you enjoyed this post and it's given you some lipstick inspiration! :)

What is your favourite Autumn/Winter lip colour?

Thanks for reading 


  1. All the colours are stunning and perfect for autumn/winter. I really need to get my hands on more NYX lipsticks they are sooo good x

    1. Aren't they just the best? For a budget lipstick, you couldn't ask for anything more. I hope to see you rocking a bold lip soon too! :) x

  2. I absolutely adore all the shades you have picked out here as you wear them so well! My top favourites would have to be Apocalips in eclipse and Kate Moss 107, both Rimmel so I need to check them out soon x


  3. Thanks very much Alina, you should definitely at least go swatch them in the store! They really hit the nail on the head when it comes to dark lips :) xxxx

  4. The MAC one is gorgeous I must try it when I get the chance. I haven't seen eclipse anywhere recently as it's always sold out. I picked up WnW sugar plum fairy recently and it's perfect for A/W. It's a little more purple than Rimmels 107 and I'm obsessed.

    1. Let me know if you do try it! Yeah it's very popular isn't it?! I've been seeing that mentioned a lot recently... Might just have to make a sneaky purchase haha xxxx
