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 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.

Any of them take your fancy?



Rimmel and Kate Moss together over their 15 year relationship have had 40 separate campaigns, which is pretty impressive! To celebrate, they’ve released the Rimmel Kate Moss 15th Anniversary Lipstick Collection. There is also a nail polish collection too!

I picked up 3 shades in the lipstick collection, but there is six varying nude and red shades to choose from.

Rimmel say of the latest collaboration,’Celebrate 15 years of the most successful, unrivaled partnership in the beauty world. Rimmel and Kate Moss introduce a special-edition lip collection in Kate’s favourite reds and nudes, each created by Kate and inspired by her London look.’

The three I picked up are:

There is also another red shade called ‘Idol Red’, which is in between the red colour spectrum of the two I have here. And then two other nude shades that are less pink based and are called ‘My Nude’ and ‘Boho Nude’.

I am a big fan of Rimmel lipsticks and these do not disappoint from a colour pay off and formula point of view. They are creamy easy to apply and true to colour. They have the familiar Rimmel lippie overly sweet scent. I don’t mind it, it reminds me of stepping into the front door of Ikea, where they keep all of the scented candles :). But, if you are sensitive to smell, the strong scent might deter you!

The colours are lovely, but they are not anything majorly new or innovative. Most brands, including Rimmel have colours like these already in their makeup stands. The packaging is pretty though 🙂

The Rimmel Kate Moss 15th Anniversary Lipstick Collection is in store and online in Boots here now. They cost €10.99 each which is a bit pricey for Rimmel I will admit. Boots are doing buy one get one half price on Rimmel at the moment though. Superdrug also have the lipsticks instore and online here which is where I got mine for €8.99 each and are on 3 for 2 at the moment.
