Autumnal faves 

product review

This may possibly be one of the first autumnal posts you read that doesn’t mention pumpkin spiced lattes. Well, frankly because they are becoming overplayed and naff now in all honesty. Plus you consume zero calories make up shopping. At least that’s my warped justification. 


Of course each new season calls for a make up haul (literally any excuse). Typically in Autumn we move to darker lipsticks, extra moisturisation and cosy jumpers to prepare for the colder season. 

Here are my pick of the best buys for Autumn; 

1. Vitamin E Facial Serum, £3.99

I constantly have dry patches all over my face, it looks like I don’t moisturise at all – my face is like the Sahara dessert. This serum from Superdrug is brilliant value; it’s low cost but full of vitamins to enhance and protect the skin. The naturally sourced Vitamin E also claims to protect against environmental damage, meaning the product can be used as an anti pollution moisture boost. Two birds with one stone! 

2. Mary Kay Gel Lipstick In Red Smoulder, $18 (Available on eBay for U.K. Market) 

I’ve always been a huge fan of the classic red lip. A decent red lip ensures any girl feels as glamorous as Marilyn Monroe. This lipstick being a gel semi Matte texture, is not drying. As discussed in a previous blog post – this lipstick is amazing. This is the perfect shade for the autumnal time. A bright red, that isn’t too deep or frightening for the demure amongst us make up addicts. 

3. Mac Lip Pencil in Vino, £13

A deeper darker purple tone for the braver make up enthusiast – make a statement with a bold purple lip. Super fab. 

4. Mii Cosmetics Matte Lip Cream in Power, £16

Much like the Mary Kay Lipstick this lip cream has a great non drying formulation which lasts all day. Would highly recommend for longevity. A deep purple shade, which would be compatible with earlier mentioned Mac lip liner. Purple lips are great for catching attention, and suited to the winter time cold. Think Russian superstar. Yes darling! 

5. Elf HD Lifting Concealer, £4.50 

Great coverage for a bargain price. This concealer lasts throughout my 7 hour working day without flaking / segmenting. 

Good value for money – non drying also which is almost mandatory for the colder months.
