autumn/winter lip shades

Autumn \ Winter is all about wearing warm and earthy tones inspired by mother nature be it your wardrobe or makeup bag. This is my favourite time of the year and having said that I love everything about this season from aromatic spiced candles lit in the home to my pumpkin spiced latte to my burgundy lips, and all other things quintessentially autumn\winter.

A season is defined with the colours around you and talking about colours two things that come to mind in makeup are lip shades and eyeshadows! In today’s post, it is all about those warm lip shades your makeup bag needs for autumn\winter. So let’s get prepared for the season and rock it till we say adieu to another year!



Currently, I am just raving about this shade by Nars. I feel this is one of the perfect shades possible for the season. The shade is a cool berry toned liquid lip pigment with a matte finish and it is super pigmented. This shade will look gorgeous with any look, best if you are planning for a night out or a party! a little too much for the daytime as the colour is bold but if you are ok with bold lips during daytime and carry it well then nothing else matters. If you are a lover of liquid lipsticks and love such colours then Under MY Thumb should be your next catch.

Tip: As the applicator is a bit stiff, it is better to apply a lip liner before applying the shade to get a crisp line unless you have a very steady hand.

I guess this is nothing new to say that taupe is so far one of my favourite shades ever by MAC. I can wear it all day, every day and throughout the year. You don’t have to wait for a season to apply this shade. The shade is a muted reddish-brown colour with a matte finish and has that beautiful MAC vanilla fragrance which I just love. This shade looks great on people between NC35-NC40 of MAC’s Studio Fix compact. It is definitely one of my favourite nude shades ever. As not everyone is a lover for red or burgundy lips, if you are looking for some beautiful nudes to play with, then I would highly recommend Taupe in case you haven’t come across this shade so far.

MAC Mehr is one of the bestsellers globally and I just swear by the shade. I think I have bought this shade for the fourth time now and this is one trusted shade in my vanity which I can reach anytime and everyday. According to MAC, it is a dirty blue pink matte finish. I love pinkish shades as they bring freshness to the makeup look and this shade goes with almost any makeup look whether it be bold smokey eyes or a subtle look. The best part is that this shade looks good on all Indian skin tones. Give it a try and I am sure it won’t let you down.

It is a beautiful berry red shade with a velvety finish, very easy on lips and long lasting and doesn’t become dry after application. The shade looks gorgeous on any skin tone. Perfect for this time of the year when you are planning for some party wear and gorgeous makeup.

If you are not a matte lover and prefer using something soft during this time of the year when the lips tend to be dry and opaque on the application then this chubby stick by Clinique is your ultimate go-to shade. The colour is reddish plum, will look beautiful on Indian skin tones. Being a lip balm, it is not pigmented but leaves a very soft and moisturising effect on to the lips which I am sure is loved by many of you. The best thing I like about these chubby sticks are they are twist-up pencils so no need to sharpen and waste the product.
