I’ve never been a fan of the summer time. Yes, it’s great to be out of school and relax for a couple of months, but the heat and bright colors of the mid-months have never been appealing. The crisp days of the fall where sweaters and soft jeans are essential have always connected with me. Autumn brings hot chocolates, warm fires, and beautiful rich colors. These two lipsticks from Burberry and L’Oreal are my beauty bag must-haves for the season.
If I could only wear one lipstick for the rest of my life, it would be the Burberry Lip Mist in Oxblood. This is an incredible berry-red shade that I’ve been sporting since it was released in 2013. The lip mist formula is more sheer than a regular lipstick, yet it can be built up to very full coverage. I love to wear this shade in the fall with lashings of mascara, a touch of pink blush, and a classic LBD. If you don’t own this lipstick, I would pop over to a Burberry counter and pick up a tube (or three)! A cheaper alternative to Oxblood is the L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Lipstick in Blushing Berry. This is a classic lipstick that is medium-full coverage with a satin finish. Although the two may look similar when swatched, this lipstick is a pink-berry shade while Oxblood leans more toward red. The best way to wear this shade is with a mauve blush and a sheeny taupe shadow.
