Why I'm looking forward to Autumn Winter - Top 3 Nail Polishes and Lipsticks

Thursday, 18 September 2014

I am so excited for Autumn/Winter. It's my favourite time of year by a long-shot. For me A/W means my birthday, Halloween, Bonfire Night, and the best time of year - Christmas! I love that everything gets a bit cosier with jumpers, blankets and candles. I love that lip colours get deeper and smokey eyes get darker, and hats, oh boy do I love a good hat! And tartan! I've had a root through my collection to find my current "can't wait to wear" picks, although I'm sure I'll be picking up a few more favourites over the next few months too.
Nail Polishes
  • Barry M Cappuccino - One of my all time favourite nail polishes, and it suits A/W perfectly. It's such a chameleon colour, depending on the light it can look purple, grey, brown or somewhere in-between.
  • Essie Aperitif - A rich, true red. Such a gorgeous colour, although for some reason it doesn't seem to last as well as other Essie polishes, but a decent top coat will take care of that.
  • Essie Stylenomics - It's not black I promise, even though it looks it. It's very very dark green which you can only see in when it's very light or in the bottle. I love that it has that secret undertone to it though.
  • Rimmel Kate Moss in 107 - Excellent formula, fairly moisturising, decent pigementation and a gorgeous deep wine colour.
  • Revlon Super Lustrous in 477 Black Cherry - Probably the least long-lasting of the group, but the colour is just incredible for A/W and the formula feels very comfortable on the lips.
  • Mac Matte in Russian Red - Red matte lips and winter just go hand-in-hand for me.

What products are you looking forward to using again now Summer is on it's way out?
