Dark, darker, darkest; autumn is the time where the dark raspberry, burgundy and purple colours come to rock our lips. The following six are my favourites...

From left to right //

The Color Boost in Plum Russian from Bourjois is the most subtle one of the bunch. Sheer like a lip balm and as moisturizing as one! This creamy and soft pencil (so easy to apply) has a gorgeous plum colour, since it is a more sheer option, it is perfect for a soft autumnal dark lip touch!

Next on the list is a creamy warm burgundy with a brown undertone, the Essence Lipstick in 04 On The Catwalk!. It is a easy transitional colour and isn't full on "dark", for those girls who like classic and more mute lips...

Raspberries are probably dying to be this full on raspberry pinkish! If you are more of a pink lipstick kinda girl, this Essence Lipstick in 03 Dare To Wear is your dark pink lip option! Also a creamy consistency, but when dabbed softly onto the lips, it is more a satin finish!

The classic of Classic Autumn Lips, the Rimmel Kate Moss in 107. This is like the musthave lipstick for autumn! A true dark burgundy with a blue undertone and super matt! If you want long wearing, than this gem is yours!

Off to the purple of our lip colour-spectrum! First off, this creamy (smelling like vanilla!!!!) warm purple colour in the gorgeous and sleek packaging, the Catrice Ultimate Stay Lipstick in 070 Plum & Base! I already used it in a my autumnal makeup, here. Also gorgeous when dabbed onto your lips for a more long wearing and "matt" lip!

My darkest purple and definitely most "out there", is the Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in 120 Cutting Edge, and edge it has! You should be very confident and brave if you want to wear this lip out! I love this lipstick, but save it for night outs, haha! But as with the others, you could gently dab it onto your lips for a more stained purple lip.

What is your favourite dark lip colour/ lipstick?
