The past few weeks as the weather has felt increasingly fall-like I’ve found myself reaching for the same few lipsticks, all of which are beautiful, dark hues that I feel are quite appropriate for the season. And since the ‘grunge lip’ trend has been heavily talked about recently, I figured now would be the perfect time to share my favorite dark shades for autumn.
From left to right:
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in 850 Plum Velour: This color is more of a violet than it appears in the photo which is why I think it’s perfect for this time of year. The color can be built up to a nice dark purple or you can apply a quick swipe for a less bold look. Plus it has a beautiful shine.
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in 477 Black Cherry: This is the darkest of the bunch and is perfect for creating that ‘grunge lip’ look. When applied it stays true to color and it too has a nice shine that gives it an exceptionally chic appearance.
Loreal Colour Riche in 892 Raisin Rapture: This lipstick is a bit darker than it appears in the photo (the lighting wasn’t cooperating) and goes on as a beautiful burgundy. The color is infused with flecks of shimmering gold as well which give it an extra pop when it’s applied.
Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in 124 Bordeaux: This is undoubtedly my favorite deep red lipstick. It goes on as a rich wine color that is perfect for autumn and winter. And it’s lasting power is extraordinary; even with eating and drinking throughout the day it stays on without any trouble. If you’re looking for a dark red this winter, I 100% recommend this one.
The best thing about all these shades is that they’re all drugstore brands which means they’re quite affordable. If you’re looking to add some deep autumn shades to your lipstick collection these would be a great place to start!
