Top Five Tuesdays | AW Lipsticks

L-R | MAC Good To Be Bad | MAC Lady Danger | MAC Viva Glam I | One Direction Kiss You in Be Mine | Barry M Lip Paint in 160

hi girls! 

i know i've been pretty absent from the blog lately, but in my time off i've been trying to brainstorm some new ideas for posts and came up with 'Top 5 Tuesdays' where every Tuesday (obviously), I'll be sharing my Top 5 of a certain product and i'm going to kick it off with A/W lipsticks. while we're here, i would also like to apologise for the poor quality and lighting in some of the photos you'll be seeing in the near future - i've just moved into a new house at university and there is literally nowhere with good daylight to take pictures. team that with the nasty wintery weather and i'm really struggling trying to find somewhere decent to take pictures so please bare with me! 

we all know by now that autumn and winter bring all the berry lip colours out, so i dug through my lippy collection for the five that i'll be reaching for the most this season. first is MAC's Good To Be Bad, a deep, plumy red with a few hints of brown from their sheen supreme line. i'll wear this more the closer it gets to christmas, it's a definite festive favouite! matte lipsticks are my favourite formula for this time of year - i just prefer deeper shades without so much of a sheen, and MAC's Lady Danger and Viva Glam I are the perfect candidate. Lady Danger is a real, true red, and a perfect match for those festive fairisle prints, and Viva Glam I is a classic deep red which has barely left my lips since I got it. i've also got two more budget friendly ones with the first being from the MUA and One Direction collab (hold your judgement, girls). this is the Kiss You in Be Mine lipstick, which is coincidentally the shade of my boy Harry. if Lady Danger and Viva Glam had a lipstick lovechild, this would be it with a little hint of a shimmery sheen to it. it is still predominantly matte, and for just £3 i would say this is of just as much quality as any other lipstick in the drugstore. finally is the first berry shade i ever picked up and it's the Barry M Lip Paint in 160. again, another matte shade and more on the purple side than the red and i would say a true burgundy shade. 

what colours will you all be reaching for this season?
