My Favourite Autumn Lip Products

As the nights are getting darker and days are getting colder, it's clear that we are finally in Autumn, which means the corals and pinks are out and the purples and reds are in. Autumn is my favourite time of the year for clothes and makeup as I love experimenting with new darker colours, here are my favourite autumn lip products.

During Autumn I always drift to the creamy brown glosses for a more subtle and toned down day-to-day school look, but I also love my purple-red stains for when I'm heading out in the evenings or weekends. The best thing about these colours is they go with absolutely everything, making them all your perfect colour this season.
This gorgeous No7 lipstick is definitely my go-to autumn colour, it's a beautiful berry-brown colour which is just a few shades redder/darker than my actual lip colour so it's nice and neutral yet still adds a touch of colour as it is super pigmented. My favourite thing about this product is that it lives up to its name, it has a really creamy and balmy formula which doesn't dry out the lips unlinke many other lip products that I have tried. I actually got this as a free gift in a No7 goody bag a few months a go, however it retails at £9.95 which I think is very reasonable for the quality of this product and I would definitely purchase again.
Model Co is one of those brands I have heard loads about but never actually tried, so when I recieved this sample lip gloss last week in my Birchbox (post going up next week) I was so excited to give it a go, and it definitely lived up to expectations. This is a high pigmented, creamy-brown colour and is super glossy due to its lacquer nature, making it a perfect everyday gloss, it's actually quite durable for a gloss, staying in place for a good few hours before needing to be re-applied. However, at £15 I don't think I will be rushing to purchase the full product just yet, but maybe I will change my mind when I run out.
I have recently been wearing this to school every day as it is a lovely reddish nude, as the name suggests, so it's perfect for adding just a touch of autumn colour to my lips. In fact, I have used this so much I am now looking for a new one and the only place that seems to stock this colour is Tesco. This is my favourite Rimmel London lip product as it comes with a 'felt tip' like pen on one end and a sealing balm on the other, the pen end is actually a lip stain and when sealed with the balm, the colour stays on all day. At just £6 this is definitely a steal and when I go out to replace it I may bag a few more colours aswell.
Although I consider this an autumn colour, I actually purchased this in July for Prom. As the name suggests, this is a really glossy product and at Prom I only needed to re-apply once during the night. Raspberry kisses is a gorgeous pinky-brown colour with bits of iridescent sparkle so it's a great product if you're going out for the night. It also smells (and tastes) amazing!
I have a bit of a lip balm obsession and when it comes to Baby Lips I could be considered a bit of a hoarder, so when I found out the 'electro' collection was coming to the UK I pre-ordered a few colours. When Berry Bomb arrived in the post I was a bit shocked at how bright purple the colour was but when applied it is much sheerer than it appears in the packaging, it comes out with a lovely purple tint, perfect if you want to experiment with a brighter colour but don't want to fully commit. As this is a baby lip balm, this is a really hydrating product and it smells so good!
