3 Favorite Fall Lipsticks

It's that time of year again, when we pull out our scarves and knee high boots. It's also the time to switch up our makeup. Although here in Hong Kong, the weather's so hot it still feels like summer time!

But I really couldn't wait to pull out my deeper colored lippies and here are three of my favorites!

1) Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm

This lip balm goes on super smooth and leaves a coat of color. I'd say for a tinted lip balm the color is actually quite pigmented. It also leaves my lips glossy and really smooth looking. Love it for everyday on the go.

2) Stila Lip Glaze in Black Cherry

The color of this lipgloss is more red than brown, but the darkness of the color makes it very appropriate for the winter time. I like the clicking of the tube to push the lipgloss up. It is a bit sticky but I don't mind it too much. Has a slightly sweet scent but is not overpowering. And the lipgloss has the perfect amount of pigmentation.

2) Urban Decay Lipstick in Apocalypse

This lipstick looks scary in the tube, but is actually a beautiful plum color on the lips. I use it quite lightly to achieve the color I want, but if you build it up, it can turn dark brown. The lipstick smells great and looks smooth on the lips.

L to R: Burt's Bees, Stila, Urban Decay

Do you turn to darker lips for the fall/winter time? What's your favorite product for achieving that look?


  1. I have a couple lipsticks that I'll occasionally wear during the fall and winter. One is called dramatic encounter from mac, but it's super dark and intense. If I want to tone it down I'll wear something like rebel. Not going to lie though, I'm a pinky nude lip gal all year round!

  2. I haven't let go of summer yet so I'm still wearing my pinks!

  3. Wish I was bold enough to wear such a dark lip! The Urban Decay color is so pretty!
