Favorite Autumn Lip and Nail Colors

Yay! Today I wanted to share a few beauty faves! While I can't say I am the biggest make-up person, i.e. I basically do the same stuff everyday and I am not that good at doing make-up either, I do enjoy me a bit of make-up every now and again. I did discover this whole blogging world through watching beauty videos on YouTube eons ago after all. With all of that being said one thing that I do enjoy changing up are nail and lip colors. I find that they are the easiest products to be quite seasonal with and I enjoy finding hues that go with the current season and I have just fallen in love with lip and nail products over the years.
Rimmel Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick by Kate Moss in 107
NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick in Exotic
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen
NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick in Bedtime Flirt
Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Color in Warm Me Up

Starting off with lips! I made sure to include a good mix of bold and neutrals to suit anyone's fancy, as well as one that is kind of in between! These are all drugstore so yay for affordable makeup!

First off we have one of my all time faves, the Rimmel Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick by Kate Moss in color number 107. This is my favorite red lipstick, which it's not even a true red. It's a darker berry toned red which I think is just more flattering on my skin tone and also makes it a great color for this time of year.

I didn't mean to include so many NYX products but I just find that NYX as a rule thumb is just a reliable drugstore brand, especially for lip products. I do have two of the Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipsticks. I find these are great drugstore liquid lipsticks that are both pigmented and long lasting. The one in Exotic is a really nice toned down and muted red. I find it's a great color if you want something a little bit darker but not quite as vampy as say the Rimmel Kate Moss one. The other color in Bedtime Flirt is just a good everyday nude shade that isn't too nude because no one wants mannequin lips.

The next NYX product is the Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen, these lip products are super cool because they are kind of a like a whipped liquid lipstick and are way lighter on the lips than liquid lipsticks. I love this color too, it's just a fun deep berry color and is not as scary on the lips as it may look.

Last I have the Maybelline lipstick. This is the only none matte shade of the bunch, which I didn't intend to do. But this is just a great neutral "my lips but better" color and a super easy shade to slap on, on the go.

Ciate in Mistress
Essie in After School Boy Blazer
Butter London in Wallis
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Cinna-snap
Nails Inc in The Thames

First I have this Ciate red, which can we talk about the bottle real quick? It's so cute!! Ciate nail polishes are great because they are all so pigmented and creamy and apply so evenly and this red is gorgeous. The only thing I am not a fan of is the price, so I knew I had to pick this up when I spotted it at TJ Maxx.

Essie is always a classic and this navy color does not disappoint. Definitely the perfect creamy navy if you are on the market for one.

I'm so bummed Butter London discontinued this color, as it may be one of my all time favorite nail polishes shades. It's such an odd mixture of gold, green, and grey but they somehow look gorgeous all shining and sparkling together.

Next is the Sally Hansen color, this is definitely the cheapest of the bunch but that doesn't make me love it any less. While the name, Cinna-snap, makes me cringe a bit it's a gorgeous deep maroon that is perfect for fall. It also doesn't hurt that it's fast drying.

Last I couldn't do a Fall nail polish post without mentioning a gray so I decided to include my Nails Inc polish in The Thames, which is also named after the river in the fave city (London!!). Again I couldn't find a link for this polish which is such a shame because it honestly is such a pretty shade.

What are some of your favorite lip and nail colors for this time of year?

xox,
Amanda
