Fall is in full swing and with the change of seasons comes a change of makeup. It’s time to trade in your sheer, bright lip colors for deeper colors. Trending for fall are bordeaux and eggplant tones. We love the way Joan Smalls rocks a dark lip — keeping the rest of her makeup minimal.
If you are new to the world of dark lipstick, you may want to take baby steps into the world of vampy lipsticks. Translation — don’t splurge on a $30 wine lipstick, only to find that you hate it! Instead start out with a brand like e.l.f. and get the most bang for your buck and you transition into fall makeup. A great lipstick to try from e.l.f. is the Moisturizing Lipstick in Bordeaux Beauty.
About e.l.f. is Moisturizing Lipstick in Bordeaux Beauty $3:
The velvety, satin texture glides on lips with vibrant color and luminous shine. Enriched with Shea and Vitamins A, C, & E to nourish and hydrate the lips. The rich, creamy formula seals in moisture for long-lasting wear and comfort.
Why we love it:
This $3 lipstick wears like its $30 counterparts! The color is vibrant and long-lasting — what you see in the tube is what you get on your lips. And that spells pigment at its best! The formula is moist but not so creamy that your lipstick is slip-sliding all over your lips. It’s the perfect marriage of matte and moisture.
When it comes to wear — e.l.f. is Moisturizing Lipstick lasts for hours without need of touch up. (I even drank a whole diet coke from the bottle without ruining my lipstick.) Then there is this amazing sweet taste of the lipstick — you have to keep yourself from licking your lips!
