Let's get lippy | The five vampy MAC lipsticks that you absolutely need this autumn

D for Danger | 'Burgundy' lipliner

I think it's safe to say that summer has disappeared for yet another year. I mean, I would be upset about this... but how can you be when it's now acceptable to light all of the candles, drink all of the hot chocolate and wear all of the vampy lipsticks again?! I don't know about you but I'm excited about the latter anyway, so with this being said, here's the five MAC lipsticks you need to buy in time for A/W... 

Rebel | Shade- Plum with berry pink undertones | Finish- Satin 
I usually tend to fall out of love with a lipstick the longer I've owned it, but not Rebel. This still remains one of my absolute faves for autumn/winter, and that's even when it's been sitting in my makeup bag for what feels like forever. This is also one of those lipsticks that looks different on each person, depending on your skin tone- on me it's more of a deep vampy purple, whereas on others it can look slightly on the pinker side. Try it, I dare you! 

Russian Red | Shade- Rich classic red | Finish- Matte 
Whenever anybody asks me to recommend them a classic red lipstick, I always point them in the direction of Russian Red. I'm a massive fan of the matte finish, as they don't tend to smudge/bleed as much, which is just what you want when you're wearing something bright-lipstick teeth aren't a good look, are they?! Oh, and dare I say it... It's the perfect red for over the Christmas period. I know, I know, it's only October but I couldn't not throw that out there! 

 L-R: Dubonnet, Rebel, Russian Red, D for Danger, Diva

Diva | Shade- Burgundy | Finish- Matte 
Diva is one of the well known MAC lipsticks, and for good reason too as the deep burgundy colour is definitely worth raving about. The staying power is amazing, and I'd know as my dinner choice every time I'm out is a wrap or burger... We all know if a lipstick survives a burger then it may as well be considered invincible. I bet that last line has really sold it to you, hasn't it?! 

Dubonnet | Shade- Dark brick red | Finish- Amplified Creme 
Dubonnet was my go-to lipstick last winter, but since owning Diva I haven't used it half as much. Colour wise it's still one of my favourites, but as it's an Amplified Creme finish it does tend to need touching up more than a matte. This is slightly lighter than Diva, so to all of you considering braving a vampy shade this autumn, I'd recommend this. It still has that vampy element, just not as 'in your face'- which for somebody like myself that loves a 'look at me. Now.' lip, this just doesn't win as many brownie points!

D for Danger | Shade- Dark berry | Finish- Matte
I thought that I'd save the very best until last, so here's the lipstick I consider 'cream of the crop'. D for Danger is the latest member of my vampy lip club, and it's already made it's way firmly into first place, as the dark berry hue is the most flattering lipstick I own and makes my teeth appear super white (well, at least whiter than they actually are anyway). Like Diva, the staying powder scores a massive 10/10, making it the absolute dream autumn lip. 

So there we have it, my top vampy lip picks for over the autumn/winter. Also, you can have a nosy at my entire MAC lippy collection, here. Go on, I know you want to!
