Transitional Lip Shades

With Autumn coming, it means one thing... I can get back on the darker lipstick bandwagon without feeling not 'Summer' enough. I've always been a dark lipstick kinda gal and obviously, Autumn is prime time on the deep shaded lipstick front! 

Introducing my top picks that work well not only for Autumn, but this in between time that we're currently experiencing. I'm talking the deep shades with a little nude thrown into the mix... 

On the nude front, I've got a gorgeous nude lipgloss from Paul and Joe. It's their Glossy Lip Colour in  01* and it is to die for! Beautiful formulation, not too sticky and beautifully pigmented, but not too much. Really great product and I've had so much use out of it. 

I've got also got a few picks from Bourjois, a definite favourite drugstore brand of mine at the minute. From the Bourjois Rouge Edition 12 Hours range*, I've got the shades 30 and 31. They are gorgeous 'your lips but better' shades and they're the products that I'd put down my new found love of a nude lip straight to. The Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet is another goodn' and on the nude front I'm talking the shade 07 Nude-ist*. It's a really nice nude matte lip that lasts really well. 

On the other hand, from the same Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet range I've got 08 Grand Cru* which is a deep red. Perfect for getting back into the darker shades and the bonus? It lasts amazingly. 

Another favourite is the YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick in 12 Forbidden Burgundy, a super luxurious lipstick. Need I say anymore? Just look at it... 

The Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Grandest Grape is a great one, super hydrating and really easy application. Perfect for keeping your lips hydrated but while still having a bit (or a lot) of colour on them. 

Last but not least I'm talking the Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss in Stunner. This can be used over the top of a darker shade to add another dimension or it can be used alone as a hint to the deeper more autumnal shades. 

I'm so excited at all the autumn lip shade possibilities! 

What shades will you be sporting this A/W?
