Labor Day has passed, the white pants are tucked away, and Bath & Body Works has had the apple scented candles out for over a month. You know what that means? It’s finally fall! 

love summer. I love the warm days spent on the water with good friends and a drink in hand. Cute sundresses, fresh peaches and all the country music your ears can handle are just a few of the wonderful things about summer. 

However I’ve had enough.

I’m ready for brisk mornings, colorful leaves, apple pie and running through haunted houses with friends. I’m also ready to make my bedroom the coziest of places!

There is nothing better than wrapping up in a cozy blanket scarf, grabbing a hot mug of coffee, and walking outside to the fresh, crisp air. Fall, and the many layers of scarves, sweaters, and jackets that come with it, is my favorite season to dress for. Every year I get excited to pull out all of my boots, put on a pair of leggings and a sweater, and light all of those amazing Bath & Body Works candles. Call me basic, I don’t care ?

I am a self proclaimed lipstick junkie. I love lipstick and discovering the next “perfect” shade of red, pink, or nude to suit my skin tone. The container I store my lipsticks in is overflowing, and yet, I continue to buy more. I can’t help it, I just really like lipstick!

I, unlike most people, am not a huge pumpkin lover. I can’t stand pumpkin spice lattes (that’s probably sacrilege or something) and I also would rather have no pie than pumpkin pie. This is quite the statement coming from someone who absolutely loves pie. However! I have found a recipe for pumpkin chocolate chip bread that will rock your world. It’s incredibly moist (I also hate that word but there’s no good synonym that I’ve found yet), chocolatey, and dense, and is perfect topped with some whipped cream.

Sticking with all things Autumn, I wanted to share my favorite lipsticks to wear during the season. I’ve just started to get into the deeper purple colors, but admittedly pinks and reds are still my favorite shades to wear. I still don’t know if the darker colors suit me. Either way, it’s autumn now, a season of change and a season of trying new things! Embracing this change I’ve included a dark color in my favorite lipsticks for fall.

From left to right: e.l.f. matte lip pencil in Berry Sorbet, Rimmel lasting finish lipstick in 08, e.l.f. moisturizing lipstick in Ravishing Rose, Sephora Luster Matte in Fig Luster, and Nyx liquid suede in Vintage. 
  1. img_2577The e.l.f. matte lip pencil in Berry Sorbet wears brighter than it appears in the tube, but it’s still a beautiful berry toned pink. The formula is nice and pigmented and doesn’t appear patchy when applied to the lips. It’s comfortable, non drying, and lasts all day!
  2. img_2583I’ve talked about Rimmel’s lasting finish lipstick in the shade 08 a ton on my blog, as it’s easily in my top 5 favorite lipsticks. It’s such a natural color that pulls any makeup look together. The color lasts all day, feels comfortable on the lips, and incredibly moisturizing.
  3. img_2617Another great color for fall is e.l.f.’s moisturizing lipstick in the shade Ravishing Rose. It’s a deep rose / mauve color, and I feel like it’s another one that really pulls a look together. It looks great paired with a copper eye look, like in the picture above!
  4. img_2608I featured this Sephora luster matte lipstick in my September favorites post last week, and for good reason! It’s such a unique twist on your typical deep berry shades for fall, as this is quite a grey toned purple. Grey sounds scary when you’re talking about it in terms of lips but the color really is flattering and is a bit more subtle than those darker shades. Again, it’s another comfortable shade that is surprisingly non-drying for a matte color.
  5. img_2597Lastly, I had to include a deep shade into the mix for the sake of all things Autumn. This is the NYX liquid suede in the shade Vintage. This lipstick definitely takes some time and work to get it to appear opaque and clean on the lips, but once you get it there it looks fantastic! I did a makeup look using this lipstick if you’d like some more inspiration as to how to wear a dark lip.

Let me know what your favorite lipsticks to wear in the fall are!
