Fall/Winter Lipsticks!

Australia may be coming into Summer right now, but I love Autumn (Fall) and I don’t think I made enough fuss about the beautiful colours that people where in these seasons. I love Autumn because it is not too cold and I love the fashion and the makeup that go along with this time of year. I do want to point out that you don’t have to wear these colours in Autumn and Winter exclusively. Makeup is for anyone and everyone and you make the rules, so if you want to wear dark lips all year, go for it! If you want to wear brights all year, there’s nothing stopping you.

Here are my favourite Autumn and Winter lip colours:

When I think of this time of year, I think of Plums and Burgundy for my lips. I’m still not SUPER confident wearing a really dark lip (think MAC’s Cyber or NYX Soft Matte in Transylvania) but these are the lipsticks I would recommend from my collection. I also have a few more products that I would have added in here but they were more or less the same colour as the others so I will just mention them as opposed to showing them. I also have a photo to go with most showing them on the lips.

L’Oreal Caresse in Milady:



This is probably my favourite colour in the L’Oreal Caresse line. Its a beautiful plum-purple, glossy shade.

MAC lipsticks: Captive, Plumful, Russian Red







Russian Red


These are some of my favourite MAC lipsticks. Plumful was my first ever MAC lipstick, so it is really special to me! Captive is a satin, reddened plum, Plumful is a lustre, sheer plum, and Russian Red is a matte, brick red.

Milani Color Statement in Sangria:



I love this lipstick to bits. This and the Rimmel lipstick that I will mention later are dupes for MAC’s Rebel except this one is Matte and I believe Rebel is a Satin. The Rimmel one is a cream so I suppose this would be a closer dupe.

NYX Round Lipstick in Snow White, Soft Matte Lip Cream in Prague and Monte Carlo:





Monte Carlo


NYX Round Lipstick in Snow White is really pretty but it is almost too creamy? It slides around and I often have it on my teeth as a result but it is really beautiful and if you can find a no-fuss way to wear it, let me know! The Soft Mattes are some of my favourite lip products and Prague is one that I am constantly drawn to!

Revlon Balms: Moisture Stain in Crush and Matte Balm in Standout



I didn’t get anywhere near enough wear out of Crush while Autumn and Winter were here in Australia! I hope that there are still a few gloomy days left so that I can whip it out before Summer hits Australia like a tonne of bricks. Standout is my favourite of the matte balms! I have both reds and I really want the purple, that is something I would have added to this list if I had it!

Rimmel Lasting Finish 120 Cutting Edge, 128 Starry-Eyed. Kate 29. Kate Velvet 107.



120 – Cutting Edge




107 is a staple for me, no matter what time of the year. Its one of my absolute favourite lipsticks, the Kate Velvet lipsticks are fantastic, I own 3 and wish I owned all of them because there is nothing bad that I can say about them. 120 Cutting Edge is the other Rebel Dupe that I own, but as I said earlier, its a cream finish. It looks awesome though.

The other colours that I wanted to mention were L’Oreal’s Matte lipstick in Bloody Mary, it looks a lot like Russian Red and Snow White, and Savvy’s Matte Lip Cream in the purple shade.

I hope that you found this post helpful! I plan on making one for Spring and Summer colours very soon, so look out for that if you’re looking for some options for Spring and Summer!

40% Off At Priceline


Priceline announced on the 10th of March that they would be having a two day 40% off day starting the 11th and finishing on the 12th of March. This didn’t leave me much room to save or to plan what I wanted to buy but I knew that I had a lot of things I’d really been wanting to try out.

My friend Zoe and I are uni buds and makeup buds and as soon as I found out about the sale I messaged her and said, ‘I sure hope you’re doing nothing after uni because we have very important business to attend to.’

I’ve been going through a constant battle with very oily skin and I knew that one of the reasons I can’t stay matte was due to my foundation. I’d been doing some research on Youtube and found the foundation I wanted, which funnily enough is the foundation my Mum uses, the only issue was it was R.R.P. $34.95AUD and I wasn’t willing to pay that amount for a ‘drug store’ foundation, no matter how good it was.

There are also a few of the MAC Lipstick dupes that I really wanted to purchase because I’d been eyeing them off for such a long time.

In the end I purchased:

  • Revlon ColorStay 24h Oily/Combination Foundation in Ivory
  • Revlon Lash Potion in Blackest Black
  • Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Coralberry
  • Maybelline Metal Colour Tattoo in Inked In Pink
  • Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Starry Eyed

I paid $51 AUD with a coupon so the total would have been approximately $60 AUD

I had about fifteen items in my basket and then realised how much it was all going to cost and I ended up just getting what I really wanted. I also had the chance to swatch two dupes next to each other.
Revlon’s Black Cherry lipstick was in a limited edition package and I pretty much just wanted it for that reason and was finding it really hard to give up the lipstick. I also picked up Rimmel’s Starry Eyed because I know I’d written it down in my lipstick dupes for something. I swatched them next to each other to see which one I liked more and realised they were actually identical. The only difference was that Black Cherry was really patchy and didn’t look very nice swatched on my hand so I bought the cheaper and nicer alternative. A bit sad considering Revlon is my favourite brand for lip products.

Anyway that’s what I got in my 40% off Priceline haul!
