My balm picks for this year start with Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry, a moisturising lip balm which tints the lips with a bright red toned berry balm. Another one which isn't so berry, more light purple, is L'Oreal Rouge Caresse in Tempting Lilac. This is coming to the end and I will most definitely re-purchase this, it's my all time favourite lipstick as they're so moisturising and gives a hint of colour. The one with the biggest punch of colour is Korres Lip Butter in Plum. These are very popular and I can see why, this stains the lips with a lot of colour while keeping them moisturised.
For the lipsticks, I have two from MAC which are very similar. The first is Plumful, which is a lustre finish, described as 'blossoming rose-plum'; which describes it perfect. The next is Craving, an amplified creme finish, which is described as 'a burst of plum' on the MAC website, though I do find it has a red undertone to it. I have quite pigmented lips anyway, but you can see Plumful in action here in an old post. The last is NARS Semi-Matte lipstick in Funny Face, a vivid pink-berry with blue undertones. I often wear this lipstick on a night out, or if I'm feeling a bright lip, or if I'm feeling the need to make my teeth look whiter!
Which lipsticks are you going to be reaching for this autumn?
