5 Faves: Glossy Lipsticks for Fall 2015

My favorite kind of finish on lipstick is something that’s luminous with slight pearl–a glossier finish one but one that doesn’t wear away in a nanosecond. Here are some of my favorites for fall!

  1. Givenchy Nude Guipure — a light pink
  2. Bobbi Brown Neutral Rose — a subdued pink
  3. Too Faced Melted Villain — a glossy purple
  4. Too Faced Pink Chocolate — a glossy pink-plum
  5. Guerlain Garconne — a glossy red

Bobbi Brown Spring Pink, Posh Pink, Raspberry Pink Luxe Lip Colors

Bobbi Brown Spring Pink Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “true pink.” It’s a bright, light-medium pink with subtle, warmer undertones and a creamy finish. It had mostly opaque coverage, but this shade had more slip than the average shade in this formula, so it didn’t apply as evenly as anticipated–there were very subtle streaks/lines when I pressed my lips together. The formula was comfortable to wear and moderately moisturizing, while the color lasted well for four and a half hours on me. Buxom Mistress (LE, $21.00) is lighter (95% similar). YSL Caress Pink (9) (P, $34.00) is lighter, glossier (95% similar). Guerlain Georgia (P, $55.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Nouvelle Vogue (LE, $17.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar).

Bobbi Brown Neutral Rose, Pink Buff, Soft Berry Luxe Lip Colors

Bobbi Brown Neutral Rose Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “neutral pinky rose.” It’s a muted, medium-dark rosy pink with warm undertones and a moderate shine.
