The best lipstick colors for autumn 2017

Every autumn season I get super excited to wear make-up and experiment with different colors. It’s the end of the summer and wearing bold lip colors is totally acceptable without being judged. Personally. I’m not really a matte lip kinda gal but lately all I want to wear is matte lips for some reason. For these colors I tried to incorporate as many different textures and price ranges from drugstore to high end. Find out which lip colors you should be rocking this autumn!

Swatches + Review: Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette

I know I’m probably the last person to review this palette but I still wanted to share my thoughts and swatches. Ever since I have gotten this palette, I haven’t stopped using it. Lately I’m really into warm and brown orangy eyeshadow colors so this palette has been perfect for me. I think Urban Decay never disappoints when it comes to the pigmentation of their eyeshadows, including this “Heat” palette.

Review + swatches: Kat von D “Everlasting Lip Liners”

I recently got my hands on the much anticipated “Everlasting Lip Liners” by Kat von D. I’m a huge fan of KVD make-up, their products never disappoint and I never find them misleading wether it’s by the names of the products or the hype around it. The lip liners collection features 30 shades in total. They range from a wide selection of colors, almost half of the collection features nude shades for different types of complexion. Despite the fact that this collection features many nude shades, I find them very versatile. The darker “nude” shades can be great as a base for medium brown and deep dark complexions. For the lighter & fairer complexions, these can be used as brown, taupe or rosewood liners.

In case you missed it, Smashbox has released a matte lipstick collection in 20 beautiful shades. In my previous post “New beauty launches I’m excited to try” I featured two lipsticks from this collection. I mentioned that I would do a separate post with swatches of all shades. Below you’ll find hand & lip swatches + my review on the new “Always on liquid lipsticks”.

Swatches: Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Color

New lipstick launches are always exciting to me. There’s nothing I love to do more than swatching and playing around with new lipsticks. I’m very excited about this launch in particular; Luxe Lip Color by Bobbi Brown. It has a brand new formula with 30 shades! I love it when brands create a wide range of colours, there’s truly a perfect shade for everyone. Other than the shades, I like the packaging as well. They’re light-weighted, practical and luxurious at the same time.

MAC Viva Glam X Ariana Grande for Spring 2016

I’m a huge fan of MAC’s Viva Glam collaborations. The combination of a lipstick + glittery gloss always creates the ultimate lip party. With the latest Viva Glam edition, MAC Cosmetics has teamed up with Ariana Grande for Spring 2016. I was really surprised to see the brand has decided to go for such a bold colour with their Ariana Grande collab. I’ve never really seen her with a lip colour this bold before, so I was curious to find out more about the formula and pigmentation.

There’s a wide variety of colours and their SUPER pigmented! Below you’ll find the swatches of each eyeshadow.
