My favourite A/W lip Combination

So Autumn is here and I've fully embraced it. I thought I'd be sad at leaving all the bright lipsticks and summer dresses behind but I'm already into the dark lips, scarves and boots. And it's two days in..
I was out doing a bit of shopping and just in the house yesterday and I was wearing this lip combo all day to ease myself away from all the bright pinks I'd been wearing for months and I've fallen in love with it again. I wore this quite a bit last year but I think I'll wear it more often now that I'm more comfortable wearing bolder lips outside the house.

Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in 107
I got the lipstick end of last summer as it was meant to be the perfect A/W lipstick and it did scare me a little at first but I've gained a bit of confidence in the lipstick area since then and I'm really liking it. I do get funny looks from people when I wear this while I'm doing the shopping but that's rural Ireland for you..

Rimmel 107 on Bottom
I had to find a lip liner to match the lipstick as I wanted a perfect outline on my lips. This one from Catrice goes really well with it. It's not a perfect match but it gives a little bit of a purple undertone to it which I love.
It's a very smooth lip liner that just glides on but then stays for hours. I like to put this all over my lips and then apply my lipstick to up the lasting power.

The lipstick has a slight sheen to it when first applied but dreis down to a matte finish. Thankfully not an uncomfortable or dying one. I don't need to exfoliate my lips as much as I have to with other matte lipsticks, I just brush them a little with a soft toothbrush as it can show up dry areas sometimes if my lips are in awful condition.I get a good four hours out of this with the lip liner underneath. If I eat anything I do have to reapply. I like to keep a few cotton buds on hand just in case I mess up the edges as this makes it so easy to fix.
The finished look
I really like this combination and i think it would be perfect for nights out or even if you want to feel a little bit more glam while your tidying your house.
What's your favourite A/W lip colour?I'd love to know. And will you be trying dark lips this season?


  1. Ooooo, I love both shades, just so gorgeous! I guess I should learn these shades eh? I have no idea what will look right for winter or summer or autumn since I come from a tropical country but that will change soon.
