Dark and bold lip colors for fall? Groundbreaking. I can't help but jump on the cliche bandwagon every time the seasons change. Brights for summer, pastels for spring and dark and bold lip colors for fall. Now that being said, I still wear any color any time of the year because I'm a grown-ass adult and do what I want. But when I'm not exercising my right to wear my big girl pants, I will always fall prey to season appropriate makeup shopping. And here is a look at three new lip colors I am adding to my fall lip collection. And some deep maroon carnations I found at the market which seemed perfect for the shot! How Pinterest-y of me.
1. YSL Glossy Stain #1Violet Edition -This is my second glossy stain and I have to say that I prefer the lighter shades in this formula. My glossy stain in Coril Fauve is so easy and beautiful to wear, but my lips need to be extremely exfoliated to wear this deep purple shade. However, I am so in love with this deep eggplant color that I simply deal with the high maintenance of wearing it. And it looks simply divine when layered with another dark gloss or balm - my favorite is the Fresh Sugar lip balm in Passion. It's the perfect plum-purple lip!
2. Guerlain KissKiss Shaping Cream Lip Color in #321 Red Passion - This color looks a bit deeper in person, but is the absolute perfect balance of pink, red and purple. And I have been dying to try this new formula from Guerlain, but was a bit disappointed when I saw many of the colors had shimmer or glitter. But as soon as I swatched this shade, I knew it was coming home with me. Guaranteed sass off the charts when sporting this color. *insert emoji with her hand up next to her hair*
3. Kevyn Aucoin Bloodroses - Ah, the ever famous Kevyn Aucoin Bloodroses shades. It comes in a gloss, lipstick, lip liner and nail polish and it is stunning. The gloss seemed right up my alley for giving a dark and moody lip that doesn't look too stark in contrast to my pale skin. Rarely do I find a gloss that feels much like a balm, but this has properties of both. Even in the picture you can see how smooth and hydrating this color looks on the lips, and wearing it is feel even better. The deep brown undertone of this color makes it perfect for a neutral eye and cheek and if I had to guess, suitable for just about any skin tone. I love all three of my new fall lips, but this is the one that I would recommend picking up first. But I don't want to be bossy, so it's your choice. (pick this one. do it.)
