Our gorgeous sun soaked days are slipping further and further away with the imminent approach of cooler weather. But just because it’s no longer summer doesn’t mean you should embrace 50 shades of grey!

Couturing brings you their tried and tested hot lipstick shades to keep you looking utterly fab and not drab this season!


Bobbi Brown: Creamy Matte Lip Colour in Calypso 


There’s nothing like an intense pink coral lip to brighten up your appearance on a chilly Autumn morning. Bobbi Brown’s new creamy matte Lip Colour’s have fantastic staying power and mosturises lips at the same time. Inspired during Fashion Week to create “the ultimate matte lip”, Bobbi’s lipsticks last for up to 8 hours due to their highly pigmented colour. We recommend ‘Calypso’, for a hit of colour that works during the day or night.  Bobbi says it best- “This lipstick makes a big statement”.


Shu Uemura: Rouge unlimited lipstick in bright orange


Juicy tangerines spring to mind when wearing this gorgeous lip colour by Shu Uemura. A bright shimmering orange, this lipstick glides on easily without drying out lips. Besides the pop of colour, this lipstick uses an active moisture-locking cream and a lip care active support to nourish your lips and leave them looking highly kissable!


Smashbox: Be Legendary Lipstick in Fuchsia Flash 




Extraordinarily bold, fuchsia flash is a definite statement colour. The vibrant magenta shade will instantly brighten up your face and give you a spring in your beauty step! Another bonus is the lipstick’s staying power; you’ll only need one application to last all night. The matte lipstick won’t dry out your lips either with vitamins C and E to protect and nourish.


Kit Cosmetics: Lipstick in Freedom Fighter



This colour works for a daytime or night time look. The beautiful coral pink lipstick will add warmth to your face without being overpowering. The lipstick is creamy, longlasting and quite pigmented. The addition of vitamins A, C and E, chamomile and aloe vera moisturises the lips giving you a luscious looking pout!


NARS: Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl and Red Square 


There’s no pop of colour quite like a hit of forbidden red. NARS Lip Pencils are a must-have for any beauty fanatic! They act as both a lip liner AND a lipstick that give you a fantastic velvet matte finish. ‘Dragon Girl’ is a siren red shade that is dark and warm, perfect for a cool Autumn day.


‘Red Square’ is an orange red shade that is brighter than Dragon Girl. These lipsticks are equally fabulous and guaranteed to inject some colour to your lips!

So update your beauty look now with one of these fabulous bright lipsticks. Be brave and embrace a pop of colour!
