I personally am one of those people that wears whatever makeup they fancy at all points in the year - I'm not very seasonal about it. But I can appreciate that some of do like switching it up when it comes to the colder months, and today's post is all about some great products that'll see you well through Autumn and Winter.
First up is my new lipstick love, the NARS Audacious Lipstick in Audrey. It took its sweet time getting to me thanks to a Space NK stock problem but it was well worth the wait. It's a beautiful "almost red - but not quite" shade with berry undertones. The pigmentation is unbelievable, providing full opaque coverage in one swipe, and an even stain remains on your lips after it's worn off. The packaging is impressive too; it's chunkier than your average lipstick but it contains a very satisfying magnetic closure with sleek, matte black casing. If there's one product that deserves its hype, it's this.
I recently added some long awaited eyeshadows to my MAC quad. Patina and Satin Taupe have been sitting in there for almost a year now and I thought it was high time I completed it - with Haux and Blackberry. Haux is a rosy brown and combined with Blackberry, a burgundy plum with brown undertones, it's a match made in heaven.
Tarte's Exposed blusher is the perfect neutral. It allows you to go as light or as heavy handed as you like to build up the colour, and it creates a lovely natural hue on the cheeks. Exposed is a well known dupe for NARS Doeceur, however I think the wear time and pigmentation are slightly more superior. This is all dependent on how you like your blusher though!
