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

I suppose I’m surprised that with this and your last Favorite Five, there was no lippie cheaper then $21. Are there no DS lipsticks that meet the qualifications?

Not this time, sorry! I don’t specifically look to fill with a certain price point on my personal favorites; I pick my strongest favorites, and if I end up with say, 10 of them, then I start trying to pull out more unique shades vs. overlapping ones.

I love that Pink Chocolate is on the list! A personal favorite of mine, too, ever since I bought it last month.
Your picks are all gorgeous and on point!
A few of my favorites are: obviously Pink Chocolate, UD Liar, MAC Royally Riotous and Maria Moretti, and even though I don’t have it yet, UD Manic.

Guerlain Garçonne is truly a gorgeous red! My heart belongs to last year’s Rouge G in Rouge Parade though. I nearly didn’t get it but I’m so glad I did because I use it all the time. I am trying to use my other reds though to give Rouge Parade a rest since I don’t want to finish it too soon!

How do you think Givenchy Nude Guipure would look on like NW05 skin? Would the brown take over or do you think the pink in if would keep it from looking too…well, brown. 😛

I’m not generally a fan of glossy lipsticks, but two I love for fall are MAC Cosmo (Amplified finish) and Bite Beauty Luminous Creme in Lingonberry (unfortunately only available in the mini duo, because I’d definitely buy a full size!)

Neutral Rose is high on my wish list! That BB formula has quickly become a fave of mine. So pretty,perfect for Fall and winter(spring and summer too) as it hydates and doesn’t slip around. But, OMG, every single shade is gorgeous!
