Although i did not begin this obsession during fall, my post was postponed and now i am posting this during fall (perfectly unplanned lol). I actually had this obsession during the summer LOL. As of right now i am still into some wines, but majority of my lippies at the moment consist of nudes and naturals.
I have this thing when i go through a phase of lipsticks, it usually is a color or it could be a finish (glossy, matte, or sheer). This post was inspired by when i started listening to Lorde (this summer), i became obsessive over only darks, purples and wines. Prior to that it was red lipsticks (inspired by my fave Regina Spektor), glossy finish prior to that and i think orange/corals prior to that (that was last summer).
From L to R, Top to bottom [The color institute All day lip crayon, Black radiance perfect tone lipcolor in Plum orchid, elf moisturizing lipstick in Wine tour, NYX Matte Lipstick in Aria,
So i decided to put my obsession to use, and do a post! (YAYS), narrowing down my favorite of the colors, believe me when i say it was HARD. whenever i have an lip color obsession i keep purchasing more and MORE of the same color or finish till my next obsession (a very bad habit that still continued after my makeup ban LOL). SO now i have 20 + wine/purple lippies…..le sigh.
I narrowed the lippies and stratified them by finishes and stain-ability, so we will start with the lipsticks [Black radiance perfect tone lipcolor in Plum orchid, elf moisturizing lipstick in Wine tour, NYX Matte Lipstick in Aria], then the pencils and crayons, then glosses and stains.
NYX MATTE LIPSTICK IN ARIA
When i first purchased this lipstick, i was not much of a fan until i embarked on this obsession. I didn't really like it because it appears to have some form of glaze? in it/not glitter but its not completely creamy. I do love the satiny finish. The only problem i have with it is that it can be a little drying on my lips (as with every matte lipstick lol).
ELF MOISTURIZING LIPSTICK IN WINE TOUR
This lipstick is a very lovely shade of wine, the finish is very very VERY creamy and moisturizing, and it lasts quite a while on the lips. This is one of my favorite wine colors by elf and under 5 bucks for the price. A very good steal for fall.
BLACK RADIANCE PERFECT TONE LIPCOLOR IN PLUM ORCHID
Just Gorgeous and bold purple color!! i remember when i purchased this i never imagined i will ever wear it, now its a fave! it is a creamy vibrant shade of purple, it pops and it has a nice wear-ability.
THE COLOR INSTITUTE ALL DAY LIP CRAYON
The funny/sad thing is this color has no name. It came in a set of 5 lip crayons which i bought from Ross (during my crayon phase). The color workshop is by Markwins International, they also make wet n’ wild and black radiance. Their products usually come in gift sets mostly around Christmas, and the quality is just as good as Wet and wild. I have even purchased some dupes in the past!
ELF STUDIO LIP LINER AND BLENDING BRUSH IN WINE
THIS. is my go to lipcolor! I LOVE the matte finish and the pencil is SO easy to apply, it is not drying and it lasts A while!!! I purchased this thinking it was a lipliner, but it was so creamy and it came with a blending brush so i tried it as a lipstick and i fell in love!!
REVLON COLORBURST MATTE BALM IN SHAMELESS
The color is so bold and dark that you are more likely to look dead if you do not apply your makeup properly LOL. I have already reviewed this lippie here. check it out!!
LA GIRL GLAZED LIP PAINT IN DARING
Mannn i remembered when these came out!! I went ahead to purchase 6 of them (will review soon!!) this is one of my faves of the collection, i love the glazed lippies, they stain well, act like a gloss, balm, lipstick and stain all in one!! the color is bold and gorgeous!! the lippie is moisturizing and tingles like carmex. This is a necessity for your fall collection.
REVLON COLORSTAY MOISTURE STAIN IN PARISIAN PASSION
A stain, a gloss, and lovely color!! all in one!! I actually reviewed this one quite recently, check it out here.
ELF ESSENTIAL EX-TRA LIPGLOSS IN LUKE
This claimed to be a gloss, but it might as well claim long-wear, because it lasts through a lot!! i love it so much that i purchased the whole set! the gloss is gorgeous, you dont look like you just ate some fried chicken and it does not stick to your hair. It was this lippie that renewed my faith in lipglosses (i hated them for a good five to ten years).
ETUDE HOUSE COLOR POP LIP TINT IN P12
The color is supposed to look like a vampy blood stain (i guess it does?) i purchased it from pretty and cute due to curiosity and a very nice sale. It stains pretty well and it stains for a long while. It however loses its gloss after a few minutes to hours and just stays as a stain.
Well that is all for my top 10 fall lippies, hope someone was inspired to purchase one of these. I do apologize for being AWOL in the month of September. wow this is my first post in September….
well i will be posting soon!
Thanks for reading!!
