Another delve into some purse friendly beauty faves. This time I took some inspiration in the changing of the seasons. Here are five Budget Autumn Lipstick choices.

Autumn makeup for me is summed up by dark vampy lips. Of course, it’s appropriate to wear them all year round, there’s no rules in makeup. But, I always tend to pull out the deeper shades more at this time of the year.

 

I chose five budget friendly Autumn lipsticks from my collection. All from different brands in hopes of giving you some inspiration for the colder months 🙂

First up we have the Lasting Finish Kate Moss for Rimmel Lipstick in the shade ‘Retro Red’. This is from the 15th anniversary collection.

This has a creamy finish. I thought it would be a good choice if you didn’t want to go full on plum vamp. It’s still dark but as the name would suggest in a more retro red way 🙂 You can get these from Boots instore or online here for €10.99. You can get them in pharmacies and in Penneys too and they’re usually cheaper!

Number 2 on the Budget Autumn Lipstick list is the Sleek VIP Lipstick in ‘Attitude’.

I love these lippies. They are creamy and pigmented and really lovely to apply. This shade for me, is Autumn personified. The formula is quite forgiving on the lips too if they are dry  or cracked. These are available in store or online here from Boots for €7.49. You can find them on Cloud10beauty and Dolledup.ie aswell.

My third pick is one of the Matt Matt Matt lipsticks from Essences Autumn/Winter Collection for this year. You can see the whole collection here. This is in the shade 07 ‘Purple Power.

This is a more purple take on the vampy lip trend. As you would guess from the name this has a matte finish. But it’s not so matte that it will dry out your lips completely. These are a steal too at only €2.90 a pop.

My fourth Budget Autumn Lipstick choice is the Makeup Revolution Rose Gold Lipstick in ‘Private Members Club’.

This is the glossiest choice of the five. It’s plum but with more a blackened undertone, so definitely not for the faint hearted 🙂 You can buy these from Superdrug online or directly from Makeup Revolution here. They cost €4.20 a piece.

My final choice is from Wet n Wild. The Wet n Wild Megalast Matte lipsticks are some of my very favourites. I have a bunch of them swatched here in a previous post. They are pigmented and although matte, still creamy and easy to apply. The shade I have here is ‘Ravin Raisin’.

This is like a 90’s representation of a plum lipstick. It has a mauve undertone and I love it 🙂 You can get the Megalast lipsticks in Penneys and they are a ridiculously reasonable €2.99.

I swatched all of my Budget Autumn Lipstick choices side by side too, just so you could see the differences close up.

When I saw these Makeup Revolution Rose Gold Lipsticks, I knew at first glance they had to be mine. I am a sucker for anything rose gold…it’s an illness really.

I went to the couple of Superdrug‘s in Dublin and neither had them instore which was a pain, but I eventually ordered them last week with their new ‘Fortune Favours The Brave’ Palette, which I have swatched here, if you’re interested 🙂

There’s Five in the Makeup Revolution Rose Gold lipstick range and I managed to get my mitts on all of them, which I was quite happy about as the nude shade had been sold out when I had looked on their website before.

Let’s start with how cute the lipstick bullets are.

All of the Makeup Revolution Rose Gold Lipsticks have a shiny finish to them. As you can see the pigment on the lips varies from shade to shade. The nude, pink and red seem to have a richer colour pay off then the two darker shades. I can’t really give you any indication of longevity or anything as I have yet to wear any of them for a long period of time. I can say they are comfortable to wear on the lips though.

 

You can pick up the Makeup Revolution Rose Gold Lipsticks from their website here and they will set you back £3, which is not bad at all, right?
