Top 4 Medium to Dark High End Brand Autumn Lipsticks (Swatches)
Mornin’ love bunnies! Remember my “Top 4 Light to Medium Mac Autumn Lipsticks” post, and how I said a medium to dark MAC lipstick blog post will go out the following week? Well, after realizing all my “DARK” Mac lipsticks are red, I decided a variety brand choosing was the better choice. Besides the fact, many of the colors pictured below, I happen to wear on a daily basis, unlike my Makeup Art Cosmetics lippies! Do be noted a thorough explanation as to WHY I chose these 4 out of the many I own will be provided, along with an ingredients list, and background information behind each brand. This actually was quite fun to create collage wise, and I noticed you beauties enjoyed my previous take with the Mac lipsticks, as some of you purchased Shy Girl, and my favorite, Creme De La Femme! On a different note, when it comes to what you shall expect for the month of October, think more Halloween tutorials, and a bit more recording since I’ve been lax YouTube wise. Hope you all enjoy, XOXO, your Lilz!

4. Nars Audacious Lipstick, Audrey
Audrey should honestly be marked NUMBER ONE! With such a fine texture paired with powerful pigment, this my friends is what makes a lipstick. I find Audrey to be one of the more sensual shades out of the bunch, but it can be an everyday shade, if you play it up correctly! A huge issue I have with the Audacious line is wear time. DESPITE the color gliding on instantly, and lasting quite a few hours, it does enable grapevine lips (bleeding), and has terrible shifting attributes! Possibly this is due to the uber hydrating formula, but nevertheless, it still holds close to my heart. Easily paired with grungy smokey eyes, and colorful shades of purple, and even green, I consider Audrey an investment worth EVERYONES while! Being I am NC20 in Mac shades, which is viewed as neutral to warm undertones, I do speak for the NC range, but as being a makeup artist, I speak for the masses in the factor give Aud’ a try. It’s muted enough to wear out with some winged liner on a daily basis, and dark enough to yield sexy vibes! Think of it as a go-to transitional from day to night. Your welcome for planting that idea in your mind :)!
