The Autumn has kicked in full force for me and the bright lipsticks have come out of the drawers to play. I have felt myself drifting over to those gorgeous plum colours this season. It makes for one hell of a lip. I thought I'd throw together some of the best plums shades in town for you to lust over. These shades are highly addictive and are musts for that wish list of yours. Fact.

Maxfactor Lipstick in 'Firefly'
Being the 'nude' of the group, this is definitely the easiest shade to pull off if your scared of colour. However this is by no means a true nude. Firefly is a soft burnt purple with a creamy formula. It is not a light shade. It is in fact quite a strong colour but it holds a softness to it that makes this a favourite in the plum department. Even I have those days when I don't want to go too bold. Its a shade to look at.
Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker in 'Raplumsel'
This shade sits up amongst my all time favourite Autumn lipsticks. Its one of those lip products that are just fascinating. These lip crayons are light, moisturising and hold a sheer, glossy finish that sits beautifully on the lips. Whilst sheer crayons normally give a light layer of colour, these are in fact very pigmented. Its glossy finish makes this bad boy look incredible on. Raplumsel is the essence of plum. This is a shade that makes a statement. And they are so beautiful to wear. The formula really is its selling point.
Revlon Lip Crayon in 'Crush / Beguin'
The shade Crush is a dark violet with a light, nourishing formula. If your not really a lipstick fan then these may take your fancy. Because the formula is so light, these are easy to pull off and fuss free. So if you have a busy day ahead of you, its a good one to pick up. I love a strong purple lip colour and this product is probably the most purple shade of the group. Don't be afraid to test the boundaries of your comfort zone, this is a very flattering shade to wear. A light purple wash of colour to your lips may surprise you.
Collection Lipstick in 'Seduction'
This is probably the boldest lipstick of my plums edit and it is such a fascinating colour to wear. The shade is seriously mesmerising. Seduction sits firmly between a berry and a plum shade. If I had to describe this colour, I would say its a very bright autumnal purple with a dark edge to it. And whilst you probably need a lot of confidence to pull this off I think this is one heck of a flattering lip colour to wear. This is as bold as you could go on the lip front. The formulas of Collection's lipsticks are nice and light. It does not feel like you are wearing a layer of cake over your lips. If your up to the challenge, I dare you to pull this shade off.
What shade are you more drawn to? Do you love your plum lipsticks?
Leave me with your thoughts. They keep me company.
