Fall Beauty: The lipsticks

Being a transitional season, autumn requires that you get rid of your shimmery, glossy lip products and switch into darker shades.

A lipstick is much more than just another beauty accessory. It actually has the ability to transform your whole appearance and add colour to dull looks, while it also gives you the chance to pamper yourself without having to spend a fortune. Did you know that lipstick used to be the No1 product women opted for, during the 1940s, as it made them feel feminine and pretty during wartime? It’s all about psychology (such a great excuse for some beauty shopping, don’t you think?).

Here is a selection I’ve done for you, featuring the latest products launched by our favourite cosmetics brands.

 

THE PLUM EFFECT


Take a walk on the dark side and get ready to seduce!

Marc Jacobs
LOVEMARC – Lip Gel
{Seduce me}
MJ’s first step into the beauty segment has been more than welcome. We really love his gel lipsticks, due to their long-lasting color and their rich, bold texture.
Extra info: All 16 shades are inspired by Marc’s favorite movies. How cool is that?

Tom Ford
TF Beauty Lip Color
{Bruised Plum}
For Mr Ford, a woman’s lips are the center of her looks. In order to accentuate them in the most perfect way, his lipsticks are designed to deliver pure color and light, as well as a really smooth application.

Aerin
Limited Edition Lipstick
{Red Velvet}
The perfect way to add a bit of drama to Fall season, this lipstick will also serve as a mood booster, due to its floral infusion.

{Available at Neiman Marcus}

 

SHADES OF RED

All time classic and ultra feminine, this hue will never go out of fashion.

Yves Saint Laurent
Rouge Pur Couture Rebel Nudes

{Orange Indie}
Whenever we see the beloved golden case that bears the YSL monogram, we can be sure that our lips are about to get disarmingly classy.

 Christian Dior
Rouge Dior

{ N°999 }
Dior lipsticks never fail to impress us. This specific one doubles as a moisturizer, with its enriched formula that deeply nourishes your lips after each application. It’s a win-win situation.

Giorgio Armani
Rouge Ecstasy

{400-Four Hundred}
After CC creams, we are now presented the new CC lipsticks. An innovation coming straight from the Giorgio Armani laboratories, every “Color & Care” product promises to function both as a lip balm and a vibrant, soft everyday lipstick as well. We are so into this!
