When we enter the colder months of the year, a recurring trend of dark lips appears across the beauty and fashion world. As of my first blog post I am showing you my most regularly worn drugstore lipsticks during Autumn and Winter that are just as rich and pigmented as higher end brand lip products.

Rimmel London 180 Vintage Pink, Maybelline Matte 975 Divine Wine, Revlon 477 Black Cherry.
Rimmel London's Kate Moss lipsticks are all extremely creamy and long wearing, they are comfortable to wear as they are not sticky nor smell. However they do tend to transfer onto teeth and can smudge onto skin.
I find that the Rimmel London Moisture Renew lipstick in Vintage Pink doesn't blur onto skin or teeth and is extremely creamy and hence the name is especially moisturising, I often wear this lipstick with a heavy smokey eye.
Maybelline's Divine Wine Matte lipstick is incredibly soft and pigmented and is very long wearing, it can smudge but once blotted it doesn't move at all.
The Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick is wonderfully opaque and rich on the lips, it can tend to smudge onto skin but if blotted it won't budge!

With the more darker shades I usually wear them with a more simple eye look rather than a smokey eye otherwise it can look too heavy and bold for everyday wear. All these lipsticks are perfect for any event or just for common place wear.
The Rimmel London Kate Moss lipsticks retail for £5.49 at Boots,
Rimmel's Moisture Renew Lipstick in Vintage Pink is priced at £6.49 at Boots,
the fifth lipstick: from Maybelline in Divine Wine from their matte collection costs £6.99 from Boots,
and finally the Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick Black Cherry is retailed at £7.99 at Boots.
