5 Bold Lipsticks for Fall Under $10

If you’re looking for something bold or bright to wear this fall and don’t want to break the bank, here are five of my top picks!

  1. Revlon Raspberry Pie — a medium-dark, fuchsia-pink with a glossy, luminous finish that’s comfortable to wear and balm-like
  2. Maybelline Brazen Berry — a brightened fuchsia-magenta with a luminous sheen
  3. NYX Chic Red — a bold, bright blue-based red with a matte finish
  4. Revlon Pink Truffle — a plummy brown with a luminous sheen
  5. Maybelline Very Cherry — a classic blue-based red with a matte finish

What’s your favorite lipstick for fall that’s a total steal?

NYX Dark Glitter (NPS 217) Nail Lacquer

NYX Dark Glitter (NPS 217) Nail Lacquer ($4.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as “black with red flecks.” It looks like a black jelly with large, hexagon-shaped red glitter and smaller bits of red glitter. The finish is interesting, because it has the squishy look of a jelly, but it’s such a dark color that it almost doesn’t seem right!  The one dupe that I know of is Deborah Lippmann’s Ruby Red Slippers–there are really barely-there differences that you’ll likely only find in amount/composition under intense scrutiny.
