5 Gorgeous Copper Lipsticks to Try for Fall

I touched on some of my favorite copper eyeshadows last month, but coppery lip colors are becoming more and more prevalent with each passing season (much to my surprise!), so here are a few that I really like:

  1. NYX Wrath — A Warm Copper with a Metallic finish.
  2. Kat Von D Thin Lizzy — A Warm Copper with a Frost finish.
  3. Maybelline Maple Kiss (925) — A Warm Copper with a Satin finish.
  4. Milani Bronze Beauty — A Warm Copper with a Metallic finish.
  5. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Authentic — A Warm Copper with a Metallic finish.

The side-by-side link isn’t quite working, which we’ll fix probably on Monday (it’s a little minor for a weekend emergency, I try not to be a crazy boss, haha!), so please use THIS LINK to view side-by-side swatches 🙂

NYX Rose Gold & Intuition HD Blushes

NYX Rose Gold HD Blush ($6.50 for 0.16 oz.) is a brightened, medium orange-coral with warm, reddish undertones and a strong, golden frost. It had semi-opaque coverage that was buildable to mostly true-to-pan color. The texture was silky to the touch, which made it easy to blend and work into the skin, and the fineness of the powder helped it adhere smoothly. The only downside is that it is a little powdery and kicks up excess in the pan, but luckily, that powderiness doesn’t translate on the skin. This shade wore for seven and a half hours on me. Makeup Geek Romance (P, $9.99) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Haute Contour (Blush) (LE) is less pigmented, cooler (90% similar). Milani Corallina (P, $8.49) is darker (90% similar). Too Faced Sparkling Bellini (P, $30.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). MAC Style Cast (LE, $22.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Siena (P, $58.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Too Faced Luminous Peach (LE) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). Zoeva Palace Door (P) is lighter (85% similar). NYX Menage a Trois (P, $15.00) is darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Fireball (P, $26.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
