Lipsticks of the (last) Week

Autumn is really kicking in now (anyone else put their central heating on? No?  Just me then?), so my lipsticks have taken a turn for the deeper and darker again …

Here we have (l-r):
Vincent Longo’s Americana,
Guerlain KissKiss in Cherry Pink,
Bare Minerals Lead The Way,
Revlon Colourstay Opulent Garnet
Revlon Colourstay Divin Port Wine
OCC Matte Lip Tars in NSFW & Strumpet
and Clinique’s Superbalm in Black Honey

Here’s how they swatch:

Lovely, lovely saturated colours.  Americana is a tomato red, cherry pink is a glorious soft purple with a hint of gold shimmer, Lead the Way is a deep fuchsia with purple overtones.  Opulent Garnet is precisely what is says on the label, and Divine Port Wine is a rich deep wine shade.  I do find both of these quite drying in wear though, so load up on lipbalm if you need it.  I mix NSFW 50:50 with Strumpet for a deep and longlasting pinked red that’s my favourite colour of the moment, and Black Honey is an unusual sheer purple-taupe that just adds a hint of depth to my natural lip colour.

Here’s how the individual OCC colours swatch.  Strumpet is a cool fuchsia, and NSFW is a bright, bright fire engine red.  Individually, I find both of them a little difficult to wear, but mixed together makes a gorgeous neutral, totally opaque red with just a slight hint of pink, which is easier for me to wear (I keep an old lipbalm tin around so I can carry some ready-mixed around with me for touchups during the day):

What’s been your fancy this week?
