Five Berry Lipsticks for Autumn

One of my favourite parts about autumn is being able to crack out all my berry lipsticks. I spent my summer sporting nudes and pretty pinks but now I'm very ready to mix it back up with a few darker picks. Here's a little roundup of five of absolute favourites!

NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in Snow White - I'm not usually one for a proper red, but this one is so gorgeous. It's not that dark, which is usually my criteria for red lipstick, but it still looks flattering on my skin tone. The creamy formula is super pigmented and it's such an affordable one too!

MAC Lipstick in Bowl Me Over - This is one of my most recent lipstick purchases (hence why it still looks so pristine and pretty) but I've worn it a fair amount since purchasing it. It's one from the MAC It's a Strike! collection and it's a stunner. This has more of a brown tone to it, which I love anyway, but once applied to the lips, it does look like a more berry-ish shade. It's one of their Retro Matte lipsticks, so it is drying, but it lasts so well throughout the day!

MAC Lipstick in Rebel - I couldn't write a post about berry lipsticks for autumn and not throw this into the mix. This is probably the first lipstick I think of when I think of autumnal lip picks - it's just a bit of a classic! I find that this always looks a bit darker on the lips than it does when it's swatched, which I personally really like. Although it's a Satin formula, the finish is fairly matte and it lasts really well. This also looks lovely smudged into the lips for a more low maintenance model-off-duty stain.

Sleek True Colour Lipstick in Cherry - Another very creamily formulated lipstick that I wouldn't normally gravitate towards, but the colour of this won me over. The teensy tiny size of it definitely helped too (I'm a sucker for minis). This is a great one for slicking on to make otherwise minimal makeup look that bit more fancy. If you're not a fan of bold creamy lipsticks, you can blot off the extra sheen to make things look a bit more matte!

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen - I'll admit, this is a patchy 'un. It doesn't swatch terrifically well and it takes some work to get an opaque finish (although I may just have gotten one with a clumpier formula) but once you do, it's super worth it. This is so pretty. Super dark, vampy and just all-round autumnal.

From top to bottom: Copenhagen, Cherry, Rebel, Snow White and Bowl Me Over.
Can you tell I'm very much liking the fact that it's autumn? I absolutely love the autumnal colour palette right now, so I'm very happy to be sporting darker lipstick again! What are some of your favourite lipsticks for autumn?
