I know I have been banging on about dark lips in autumn but this only happens for a while once every year so I have to make the most of it! I have selected my four favourite dark lipsticks that I without a doubt will whip out this time of year. Just a side note though, the swatches in the photo actually have come out pinker than in real life, I have no idea why but hey ho!
With dark lipsticks you can get a whole load of variety, pink based dark lipsticks, purple based dark lipsticks or red based dark lipsticks so I have tried to chose a selection that I think cover this.
Going in order of the swatches, the first is the NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Soft Spoken. This is a dark nude lipstick which I think is a really good option if you don’t want anything too dark. If you are new to wearing dark lips or are a bit self conscious of it then this is good because it isn’t as dark as some lipsticks. It is a matte liquid lipstick which is pigmented, easy to apply and stays on for ages as well.
Second is the Maybelline Colour Sensational lipstick in 757 Naked Brown. This is by far the darkest lipstick of the ones I have chosen. It is also different from the others because it has a shine to it, where as all the other are matte. It is pink based but is really pigmented and doesn’t smudge when you eat! Which is always a good thing!
Next is the MUA Matte lipstick in Wild Berry. This has a purple undertone and is good if you want a subtle dark lip that isn’t as bold. This is matte but the consistency is rather thick, so is a little harder to apply. It is streakier than other lipsticks I own but it is only £1 so you can’t complain.
Lastly is the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Budapest. I don’t need to go on about this because I love love LOVE this! It is pigmented, it is easy to apply, it dries nicely and feels light on the lips. This would be my favourite of the four, simply because at the moment I am in love with the Soft Matte Lip Creams!
What dark lipsticks do you have?
