I know that I mention lipsticks quite a lot in my blog posts, but I just can't get enough of them! They're definitely one of my favourite beauty items to buy because there are so many different formulas, shades and brands on the market, and it's something that you can easily change up in your make-up routine to completely change the look. As we're now fully into Autumn/Winter, I've been reaching for my darker lipstick shades a lot more, and prefer wearing brown/pink toned nudes instead of peach toned nudes. So I thought I'd share with you my top 6 current favourite lipsticks as I have been loving wearing them over the past couple of months....

Maybelline Colour Sensational - 630 Velvet Beige:
This is the most recent addition to my lipstick collection and I have been wearing it most days for the last month. I love the packaging for starters because it reminds me of rose gold which is my favourite and it looks very sleek. The formula is very long lasting and creamy which makes it very comfortable to wear on the lips for the whole day. It's a brown toned nude and is slightly darker than my natural lip colour which I like...oh and it also smells like toffees mmmmm!

Mac - Brave (Satin finish):
This was the first Mac lipstick that I ever bought and it is still one of my all time favourites. This is the lipstick I reach for when I want a 'your lips but better' kinda look and it is very long lasting. I usually wear this over my Mac Soar lipliner to give the illusion of fuller lips and I love the Satin finish because it's not as drying as a Matte finish, but still has the long lasting effect with a subtle healthy sheen.

Mac - Paramount (Satin finish):
This is the most recent addition to my Mac lipsticks and the reason I was drawn to this particular shade was because it was quite brown toned. I find with a lot of darker lipsticks they tend to have a more purple/red undertone, but I wanted something that was more brown. I had never heard of anybody else buying this shade before, but I really like it so far. It is very dark but you can build up the colour to how you like and I find it's wearable day and night during Winter.

Mac - Freckletone (Lustre finish):
This lipstick doesn't have much colour to it (maybe because my lips are slightly darker anyway) but it's a very light, sheer nude. I mostly like to wear this over the top of darker nude lipsticks to tone them down slightly, or give my lips a nice natural sheen. Even though the pigment isn't very strong, the Lustre finish makes it really hydrating and if you don't want to wear much lip product for an everyday look, this looks lovely on its own to give a healthy glow.

Mac - Media (Satin finish):
This colour is my go-to Autumn/Winter dark lipstick and it does come up very dark! I mostly wear this during the evenings rather than the day time but occasionally if I want to dress up a causal outfit during the day, adding this gives it more of an edge. I usually wear this over the top of my Mac Nightmoth lipliner and it lasts all night - even when drinking and eating!

Rimmel Kate Moss - 107:
This is an oldie but a goodie! The 107 lipstick is something that I've re-purchased over the years again and again and I just love it. The colour looks a lot darker in the bullet than when it's applied to the lips but it is a gorgeous deep red. It's also a Matte finish so wears really well all day and goes with almost any outfit. If I'm not sure which lipstick look to go for, then I'll always fall back onto this one.

What are your current favourite lipsticks?
