Three Brown Lipsticks for Autumn

If you know me, you know I love brown lipstick. There are so many different hues, there's sure to be something for everyone. Whilst I still rock brown lips during the summer, autumn and winter is when I really start to crack them out on the reg. Here's the lowdown on three that I've been loving lately as well as the details on how I like to wear them!

The Nudey Brown

Browns that have a bit of pink to them, tend to pass well as nudes, even if they are on the bolder side of things. The NYX Suede Cream Lipstick in Sandstorm is just that: a lovely brown that's still soft enough to pass as a nude shade. At least in my books! I didn't think I'd love the formula of these, but it's actually pretty great. It doesn't dry down as flat matte as a liquid lipstick traditionally does, but I kind of like that about it. It doesn't crack and it's not as drying - thumbs up.

The Vampy Brown

The MAC Lipstick in Antique Velvet is the most recent purchase of the three and it's one I picked up after seeing two separate beauty gurus sport it in a video. Whilst I have a lot of brown lipsticks, I don't own any that are that deep and bold. Well, this one is certainly both of those things! It has a lot more red to it than my other brown lip products, but the result is a gorgeous, vampy look that pairs really well with simple eyes.

The Grungy Brown

When I'm going for a warmed toned eye-look, I love throwing on a brown lip shade. The result it, as expected, a somewhat grungy, yet still put-together makeup look that works for day and evening. One of the best candidates I've found is the Colourpop Matte X Lippie Stix in Pillow Talk. This is amongst some of the most highly pigmented, super matte formulas I've ever tried and I'm a big fan. It'll stay put through a day of snacking and an evening of drinking. The colour is stunning and super easy to apply. Pretty fab for $5!

So there we have it, another ode to brown lipstick. It may not seem like the widest of categories, but there really are so many different shades of brown and I think there's something out there for most people! Are you a brown lipstick fan? What are some of your favourites?

Don't forget to follow along!
