Top 12 Affordable Lipsticks for Autumn 2015


With autumn fast approaching, it’s time to take a look in your make-up bag and decide if one or two new lipstick purchases are on the cards. Perhaps you need a couple of great autumnal colours to match your wardrobe, need something more flattering to a fading tan or want products with added moisturising action and protection to win the war against the autumn weather conditions? Whatever you need, you’re sure to find something you like in our round-up of the top 12 lipsticks to buy right now. Best of all, they’re all really affordable – the most expensive is not much more than twenty quid – so you won’t break the bank even if you choose more than one.

  1. Lipstick by MAC – Whilst not a single product, this makes the list if you want a brand that you can stick with without having to look the same every day. If you like the thought of having lots of choice when it comes to colour and finish, then this range is a great option. The colours are pigment-packed and they last for ages as well.
  2. Rimmel’s Lasting Finish Lipstick – £4.99 at Superdrug. For the money, the pigment is great and so is the lasting power, even without using a lip primer. A great choice if you like to own lots of lipsticks or change the contents of your make-up bag often.
  3. Clinique’s Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm – £17 from Clinique. A top choice if you like a bold pout, offering lots of moisturisation. Use it like a lip balm throughout the day, or layer up in one go for maximum effect.
  4. Urban Decay’s Revolution Lipstick – £15.50 at Feel Unique. A high-quality lipstick where even the packaging looks stunning. It’s perfect if you want your lips to feel plump, soft and really nourished.
  5. Rimmel’s Kate Lasting Finish Lipstick – £5.49 at Superdrug. With a black diamond-infused formula that reflects light spectacularly, these lipsticks will give you stunning high-intensity colour that can last for as long as eight hours.
  6. MAC’s Viva Glam Lipstick – £15.50 at House of Fraser. This is really versatile as you can wear it on its own or team it with a coordination lipgloss but, best of all, each penny raised from sales, minus taxes, goes to helping people effected by Aids and HIV.
  7. Rimmel’s Colour Rush Balm – £5.99 at Superdrug. Top mositurising action combined with long-lasting and vibrant colours. What more could you want?
  8. No7 Stay perfect Lip Lacquer – £10.75 at Boots. Long-lasting colour that comes complete with a clear gloss to complement the lacqer. Choose from five shades that are all great at adding definition to your lips.
  9. L’Absolu Nu from Lancome – £22 at Harvey Nichols. A luxurious lippie that has a great smell – and taste – as well as top colour options that stay true regardless of the acidity of your lips.
  10. Mineralize Rich Lipstick from MAC – from £20 at Debenhams. A nourishing and lightweight lipstick that adds vibrant colour that lasts for ages in just one stroke.
  11. L’Oreal Color Riche Made For Me – £6.99 from Boots. A great choice if you want high-pigment colour combined with long-lasting power and a fab choice of shades.
  12. Barry M Lacquer Lip Crayon – £4.99 at Boots. For a high-shine finish that leaves lips feeling silky and soft, there is no finer choice.
