Fall Lips Under 10€

Wednesday, October 18, 2017

fall-lips-under-10€I was never too big on lipsticks when I was younger. My love for them only came about in the last two/three years. Before that my lips would either be completely bare or have some sort of lip balm on. I remember the first coloured lipstick I properly wore was one of the Baby Lips ones by Maybelline. I had told my mum I needed a new lip balm and she got me the red one. At first, it seemed really weird having colour on my lips (even though Baby Lips give more of a tint than anything, but still) but then I grew to love it and wouldn't go a day without wearing it.

Eventually, I upgraded to regular lipsticks. My Godmother gave me a bunch of lipsticks she had at home but never wore, including a bright pink Lancôme one and a dark red YSL Beauty one. I didn't go to those straight away, I went for the lighter colours first. Then one day at the age of 17, I discovered the lip liner. This was around the time Kylie Jenner's lips were the talk of the town and everyone was looking for the lip liner she used. I found a very similar colour from Essence and started wearing it. The formula was very creamy so I could easily use it on my whole lips and it would look like I was wearing lipstick.

My mom then suggested I used the lip liner with my YSL lipstick and let me tell you, that changed my life. Well, it didn't change my life but made me fall in love with lipsticks. I then started buying more and more lip liners and more and more lipsticks and now I have a bunch of them!

Okay, enough of my life story. Today I gathered my top 5 lipsticks for this Autumn/winter season. I will be wearing these a lot during the next few months.

By the way, can you see a pattern here? Yeah, I have a thing with nude lipsticks.


Essence Natural Kiss- This lipstick was actually bought for my little sister who's 14 years old now and already loves lipsticks - very different than me.- but she didn't like it.This matte lipstick is the lightest colour of the range and I normally use it with a darker lip liner so it doesn't match my skin tone and make me look like I have no lips.

Cien Nude Lips - This is actually a lip gloss and not a lipstick. For years I hated - and I mean hated- lip glosses, but lately they have been growing on me. This lip gloss is pigmented enough to wear it alone but I prefer to wear it over a regular lipstick for that extra shine.

Douglas Chic Smile -  This was my first liquid lipstick. I got a Douglas Cupon on my birthday and bought this gem for 2,50€! It's not the best liquid lipstick in the world. It transfers and it doesn't last for hours upon end but it's not as bad as others I've tried.

NYX RuffleTrim- Best. Lipstick. I own. I just love it. I love the colour, I love the formula. I just love it! This is my go-to liquid lipstick for my everyday makeup. I don't have a single bad thing to say about it. I can't wait to buy new ones. NYX is actually opening a store in Porto next week so I know I'm going to go there and go crazy haha.

Essence It's a Statement - This is the darkest colour of the Matte Matte Matte range by Essence. It's not a very usual colour for me, to be honest. I was never a big fan or red lipsticks. I liked this one because 1) it's matte and 2) it's a dark red. I don't wear it a lot, to be honest, I just wear it occasionally, but I made a promise to myself I would wear it more this season. Let's see how it goes.

What is your favourite lip colour for Autumn?
