Autumn Lip Favorites

September 14, 2014
Autumn is one of the best times of the year. The weather, the leaves, the clothes, and of course.. the makeup.
Aside from the fact that the cooler weather can be rough for the skin (another post for another day, people) autumn opens up the door to more fun and dramatic (and acceptable) beauty looks. One of my favorites has got to be a good old berry lip.
I feel like the plum/berry lip has really made a comeback in the last few years, and I definitely do not hate it.

My favorite fall lip gloss is hands down the Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm in Just Plum Good. I didn't pick this gem up until February of this year, so I really had limited seasonal time to wear it. Now finally after waiting all year long, I can break this baby back out!
This color is a perfect sheer berry color to wear anywhere. Sheer enough for the office, but buildable enough for a night out. It is a gloss, but I assure you it is not sticky in the least. And as the name suggests, it really is a super nourishing lip balm in gloss form. Did I mention it has an amazing vanilla scent? I don't think I could love this thing more.

As for my favorite fall lipstick? Most definitely MAC Syrup.
To be honest, I feel like this is the sister lipstick to the Almay Liquid Lip Balm. I mean really. It can be worn sheer or amplified up for a more dramatic look, it's not at all drying, AND it too also happens to smell like vanilla. Coincidence?  I think not.

If you want to get crazy, you can also pair these two together like I have below, for some autumnal berry berry goodness.

What are your favorite lip colors for autumn?
