Favourite Fall Lip Colours

Hello Everyone!
So I know it has already been autumn for a while now but here in the UK the weather has only just started to get chilly which is good news becuase fall is my favourite time of the year. I know its really cliché but my favourite thing about autumn is that when the leaves start changing colour and the oversized woolly cardigans and jumpers are out and most of all I get to wear my onsie! 

Another thing I love about the autumn is that I can wear my darker berry shaded lipsticks and lip glosses. So today I thought I would share with you some of my favourite fall lip shades. I will also be doing a post on my favourite fall nail varnishes so check back for that.

L'Oreal Paris Glam Shine Balmy Gloss ~ 
So first off is the L'Oreal Paris Glam Shine in the shade  'Dare The Dragon Fruit'  (which I must say is an amazing name for a lip colour). I absolutely love this shade becuase it is very subtle and elegant but is still a really nice dark berry colour. I also really like the slight shimmer in this shade as it just gives it that extra bit of glam.

MUA Power Pout Colour Intense Tint & Balm ~ 
Next is 'Crazy In Love' from MUA's Power Pout collection. This is pretty similar in the last one regarding application and texture, however it is a very different shade as it is a much deeper red/pink tone and isn't shimmery. I like this one for an everyday lip colour in the autumn as it is not to dark but is still bold. 

MUA Intense Kisses High Intensity Gloss ~ 
I don't usually go for lip glosses, especially in autumn winter time when the wind is blowing becuase we all know what happens when the wind blows your hair in you face, which then gets stuck to your lip gloss, leaving you standing there trying to rid your face of your tangled, lip gloss filled hair! However, I have taken to this gloss as it is not sticky and it also glides on very nicely. I love the colour as it is so bold and vibrant. Not bad for drug store product! I Bought this in shade 'Stolen Kisses'  which I also love the name of.

Revlon Renewist ~ 
I bought this out of the pound shop a few months back as I didn't really have many dark lip colours at the time. I bought it in the shade 'Radiant Ruby ~ 180' along with 2 other similar shades. It goes on very easily and the colour is very bold, however the colour doesn't last very long which is slightly disappointing so I have to re- apply it throughout the day. 

What is your favourite lip product/shade to wear in autumn?

October Favourites

Hello Everyone!
These are just a few of the things i've been loving this month!

W7 In The Buff Eye Colour Palette ~ 
My sister bought me this palette for my birthday in September and since then I haven't stopped using it, All of the colours in the palette are natural beige and browns with a little bit of shimmer. If you would like to see some swatches then my sister has done a full review over on her blog Laura's All Made Up

MUA Intense Kisses 'Stolen Kisses' ~
I have been loving this colour recently as I love the deep berry colours in the autumn. I don't usually go for lip glosses but this one isn't sticky and has a really bold colour and lasts throughout the day.

Rimmel Stay Matte Face Powder ~ 
I have been using this for months now, it is honestly the best powder i have ever bought and its cheap too, there's not a day that I don't find myself reaching for this as it sets my make-up really well.

Lady Gaga Perfume ~ 
This was also bought for me for my birthday. I have been wearing this none stop for the past month as you can probably see, i've used pretty much all of it.

NYC Nail Varnish 'Manhattan' ~ 
This is another fall favourite as it is a deep berry purple colour, I can't wear it at school though which is slightly annoying as we are only allowed to wear natural coloured nail varnish.

American Horror Story Season 1, 2 & 3~
This is a slightly random one but a few weeks ago one of my friends introduced me to American Horror Story,which at first I was a little sceptical about watching as it included the word 'horror' and as you should all probably know by now that I am a massive wimp and hate anything scary. However, I decided to give it ago and watch the first episode on Netflix and to my surprise I really enjoyed it. I then couldn't stop watching it and within a week I had watched all 3 seasons which consisted of 38 episodes altogether. It is rated 18 but it isn't really too scary, however I wouldn't recommend anyone under 15 to watch it.

What were your favourite things in October?
