The Autumn Lip Edit


As the darker nights approach, our choice of lip colours tend to darken too. Time to dust off the berry and plum shades for that perfect statement lip, unless you're a rebel like me and wear them all year round of course.
Only this year have I been persuaded to try more plum shades, I sure wish I tried sooner! Anyone who has used Topshop make up seems to rave about it, myself included. The lipsticks are incredible and are only £8... that's a pretty good deal if you ask me. 
I had heard a lot about 'Inhibition' online and it was from the sight of the first swatch, I knew I needed it. Some may say love at first swatch... Haha, punny.
I'm not a fan of sheer lipsticks, I find them fairly pointless if I'm honest, so as a self proclaimed Topshop lipstick fangirl, I knew the pigmentation wouldn't be a problem.
The only downside to this lipstick is that it does smudge quite easily and I find myself having to reapply it a couple of times throughout the day. Saying that though, I haven't yet tried it with a lip liner underneath, so that could be making the world of difference that I haven't discovered yet! 
This lipstick has rarely been off my lips the past 3 weeks, that's how you know I'm a definite fan. If you're looking for a gorgeous, satin matte plum shade, then Topshop is the place to go.

Everyone seems to go absolutely crazy for the famous '107', a shade that I still haven't tried, oops. I thought I'd switch it up a little and share the Rimmel Kate lipstick that has been one of my top favourites since I was 16. Now, I'm not too sure if this shade has been discontinued or if it's still available (I'll be very sad if it's gone!) but I wanted somewhere to gush about it.
I pair this lipstick with a dark pink lip liner as it can come out quite light on its own. The lip liner and lipstick combined make a very wearable and gorgeous berry lip. If you feel more comfortable with a berry lip as opposed to the super dark shades then a similar colour to this might be the one.
The formula of the Rimmel Kate lipsticks are lovely as they are not drying in the slightest and extremely wearable.

Some may know 'Black Cherry' as the ultimate dupe for Charlotte Tilbury's 'Glastonbury', others may know it for being one of the most "out there" shades in terms of darkness. It is a little daring for me, but that's why I love it. 'Black Cherry' can be applied lightly or heavily, and it looks perfect either way... It's just such an amazing deep, berry shade. 
I do tend to prefer a matte lip when wearing dark colours, but to be honest, I don't even care about the finish of this lipstick as the colour is so perfect! It appears quite shiny on the lips but the lasting power is again, amazing. Similarly to 'Inhibition', I haven't tried this with a lip liner (I really need to buy some dark lip liners, damn it!), but for me, it doesn't budge.
I do love this lipstick a lot and this post has reiterated that love for me... I think it's time I put my trusty 'Inhibition' down and rekindled my love for this lovely lil Revlon number. 

(L-R) Inhibition, 05, Black Cherry

  7. You need to get your hands on 107 by Rimmel! But 05 looks nice too, don't own that one! I have to say I'm yet to own a Topshop lipstick but maybe I'll invest in a dark one for winter... decisions!

  9. I love my Rimmel 107 to pieces (you should definitely go and try it) but recently I´ve also tried out some dark plum shades and I really like those too. Black Cherry looks amazing and right up my street. I´ll definitely go and try it out myself.

  12. I've been really wanting a purple lipstick lately and it looks like Inhibition is a great one!
    I've got to admit I'm a sucker for the Kate Moss 107, but I've also been loving Kiko lipsticks and lipliners lately. Their 'intensely lavish' collection has a really gorgeous dark berry shade and the packaging is rose gold *swoon* you should check it out!

  25. I bought Black Cherry & Rimmel Kate Moss in 05 this time last year. Neither have had much use, so I need to pull them out. I've only tried Black Cherry once & found it way too dark for me. I think some experimentation needs to take place & I may try wearing it around the house to get used to it! I'll definitely be trying a berry lip liner under 05 to see what it looks like on me. Thanks for the tip! Xx
