My Favorite Lipsticks For Fall

Fall autumn drugstore lipsticks
So I bought some lipsticks from Walmart a few weeks ago and I wanted to share them with you guys because I'm obsessed. For some reason, I've been really into fall lip colors this year. I'm not usually into wearing certain colors according to the season, but I just feel like these colors are perfect for fall. They're also affordable and great quality. There were a few other colors I wanted to get, but I didn't want to go overboard. I really want to try the new Nyx Vamp lip creams too. They just recently opened an Ulta near me and I've been dying to go. I'm planning on going sometime this week. So I'll probably end up buying a few more lip colors when I go. 

By the way, I want to do a bunch of fall themed posts this year, but I'm not too sure what I want to do. I know that I do want to do some DIY projects. I wanted to do some makeup tutorials too, but I feel like there are already so many already out there. What would guys like to see? Any suggestions?

 Wet N Wild Dark Wine
 Wet N Wild Dark Wine: I've been wearing this color almost every day since I bought it. It's definitely my favorite lip color at the moment.  

NYC Mahogany
 NYC Mahogany: This is definitely the darkest lip color I've ever owned. I seriously love this color, but I haven't worn it yet because it's so bold. If you've been following my blog for awhile, you know that I used to never wear lip color. So going from nothing to this is really drastic. I'll probably wear it on a night out rather than during the day. 

Wet N Wild  Black Orchid
 Wet N Wild  Black Orchid: This color looks very similar to Dark Wine, but it's actually more of a red brown color. It's absolutely gorgeous! I've been wearing this color quite often as well.

Make Up by One Direction Review

 Makeup by One Direction Up All Night
I'm super excited to share this with you guys. I got the opportunity to review one of the collections from One Directions limited edition makeup line. As some of you might already know, I'm a huge One Direction fan so this was a pretty big deal for me. I'm extremely thankful for this opportunity. 

The makeup collections are inspired by their albums Up All Night, Take Me Home, and Midnight Memories. I received the Up All Night collection*. I think I might get the other two collections because I'm really happy with the quality.

One of my favorite items in this collection is the eyeshadow palette. I really like that it has both shimmery bright and neutral colors. I do wish they would have included one matte shade though. The shades are all named after songs on their first album, Up All Night. "More Than This" is a soft pink, "Save You Tonight" is a shimmering turquoise blue, "Up All Night" is a sapphire glitter creme,"Another World" is a royal blue shimmer and "Gotta Be You" is a silvered taupe shimmer. All of the colors are very pigmented. They show up on skin the same exact way they look in the package. I haven't had the chance to wear all of the colors yet, but I did do a smokey eye using "Up All Night" and it lasted all night. I'm very happy with the quality of the eyeshadows!

The next item in the collection is lipgloss called "Taken". It's a glitter pink lipgloss that glows to neon orange under UV black light. I honestly don't think I'll wear this because I don't really care for bright pink lip colors. But I might wear it if I were going to a rave.

"I Should Have Kissed You" is a cute bubblegum pink lipstick. I don't think it's the right shade for me so I probably won't be wearing it unless I mix it with another color. But as far as the quality of the lipstick, it's very creamy and moisturizing.

My other favorite in this collection is the nail varnish called "Na Na Na". It is a gorgeous aqua-blue metallic color. I actually painted my nails this color the day I got the package. Despite the massive chipping shown above, it did last a little while. I painted my nails about a week and a half ago and it didn't start really chipping until about 3 days ago. Normally my nail polishes start to chip after about 2 days. I also like that it's quick drying. But one thing I noticed about quick drying nail polishes is that they tend to be really thin. So you need to do about 3-4 coats. I had to do 3 coats with this color. It wasn't a hassle though because it didn't take long to dry. 

There are two other things in the collection that I aren't pictured because my camera wouldn't work. If I can get it to work, I'll definitely add pictures. Of course, there is a mascara. No makeup collection would be complete without it. The mascara is named "Little Black Dress". 
I noticed this was the only item that wasn't named after a song on their album, Up All Night. It's actually song on their most recent album, Midnight Memories. The mascara is pretty good. Although I have to admit that it isn't super volumizing.The last item is called "Stand Up" and it is a dark blue chubby eye and body crayon. It can be worn as liner, shadow, or body art. I used it as a liner and loved it. It goes on very smooth so it's really easy to do winged liner with.
