My Favourite Autumn Products

Although a lot of Autumn days in England are wet, miserable and cold there is still something so majestic about Autumn. Maybe it's those very few crisp sunny Autumn days that we all remember and not the ones where eight of us are huddled under one broken primark umbrella from 8 years ago? The pumpkins sat on the market stalls in all their glory, oh and not to forget, the makeup. I just luuuurve the Autumn makeup scene. Copper eyes, berry lips, flushed cheeks - it's just all so...Autumnal! 


I tend to really go bold in the Autumn with a statement lipstick and two of my favourite products are Mac Cosmetics Plumful and the inevitable Rimmel Kate Moss 107. Purchased in America, in Duty Free (of course) is my gorgeous Mac lipstick with a lustre finish. I love this lipstick because as the name stands, it's a very rich and a lovely pinky-plum shade. It's definitely build-able as when you only put one coat on, it's quite opaque. It's not a drying lipstick which is ideal in the colder months and it just so stunning on!
Of course Autumn wouldn't be Autumn without the beautiful and critically acclaimed Rimmel Kate Moss in 107. This matte lipstick is the most gorgeous berry-red lipstick I've ever seen. Considering it's a drugstore brand lipstick I am so impressed with how this wears. I would recommend using a lipliner as there can be some bleeding but I only had to touch it up twice (so impressed that I underlined it) in a whole 8-9 day. As said, it is matte and although most people say it isn't drying, I would recommend really giving your lips some good TLC before applying it if you naturally have dry skin anyways.
I usually pair my 107 with this new purchase from Kiko cosmetics, the Intensely Lavish Lip Pencil in 06. This lip liner works wonders and not only is very creamy to apply but has a great staying power and really keeps your lipstick on hold all day.


For my eyes I am absolutely obsessed with wearing my new Mac Cosmetics Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Amorous Alloy, the most stunning copper eyeshadow I've ever seen. I've been constantly wearing this on my nights out and even during the day and have received so many compliments. There is a slight shimmer but not as intense to suggest that it is a complete glittery eyeshadow. As you can tell, the pattern in the pan has mildly faded through some love and am so happy I spent the money on this. Although it is a tiny pot for quite a sum of money, I really recommend this colour. 
The Maybelline Colour Tattoo in the shade On and On Bronze has been reached for consistently. It makes such a great eyeshadow base and of course applies so easily. It leaves a gorgeous shimmer finish and I tend to use it for a gold shimmer eye!


And lastly, my favourite blusher this season is the one and only Mac Cosmetics Minzeralize blush in the shade Gleeful. I won't blag on too much about this as I have already talked about it in my haul post here. So what can I say, although it may look intimidating and highly pigmented (which it is) it's a beautiful products giving your face that natural winter "flush" look with a stunning red-brick colour. 

So there are my favourite Autum products! I didn't realise how many of these were Mac products until just now! What's your favourite thing about Autumn? Is it the makeup, the cosy clothes or even the fact that it's close to Christmas? Please share!
