I am so overwhelmed with happiness by the turnout of an Instagram Tag I started using the Hashtag #AWLIPSTICKCHALLENGE !!!


I set a Challenge on Instagram where I dared a bunch of beautiful Bloggers / Makeup Artists / Fashionistas to show me Selfies with their Autumn/ Winter Lipstick Shade on & the response was spectacular!

I cannot wait to share with you all the beauties Selfies & if you like the shade go get the Lipstick!!!

But before I get into the Selfies, I’ve rounded up my Lipstick picks for this Autumn / Winter Season!

Nars Lipstick in Shanghai Express  – | HERE | £19.50

Palladio BeautyHerbal Lipstick  in Smokey Rose – | HERE | £

I’ve categorised the Autumn Winter Lipsticks into two colours!

|| REDS ||

Burgundy’s / Brick Reds & Bright Reds are on trend this Autumn Winter Season. Reds are perfect for Vamping up a look with those darker shades, or adding Glam to a Look with that bright red lippie! Whichever the shade you choose, rock those reds as they definitely are on Trend this Autumn / Winter!!!

    1. Thank you so much you beauty! I love the brighter red lip colour, it definitely brightens up the day too! When you have such a vibrant colour on 🙂 what’s your lips shade this Season Lena? 🙂 xox

      1. You know what I’m asking myself that too! I love ysl and chanel lipstick but I want to find a true cherry red from Burberry for my fair skin. Do you recommend any dear? 🙂

      2. From Burberry I really don’t think they have a Cherry Cherry Red! But they do have a similar toned one ( a bit darker ) called Military Red!!! Or one of my fave pure reds is seriously from the Rogue Pur Couture Collection – YSL in 1 Le Rogue! That colour is spectacular I use that one most of the time 🙂 Have you tried any of those before 🙂 !!! xoxox
