Darker Lips for Autumn/Winter

One of my favourite things about this time of year is bringing out the darker lip products. I'm a big fan of dark lips and wear them all year round but especially as the weather gets colder. Today I thought I would share with you some of my favourites that I will be wearing this season. 
Topshop Lip Bullet in Joyride - (review) I'm a big fan of these crayon lip products and the Lip Bullets by Topshop don't get raved about enough because they're really great. The shade Joyride is the perfect bright cherry red and is very pigmented and creamy. It does smudge a little but also sets in place to a stain which has a great wear time.
Chanel Rouge Coco in Cambon - This was a birthday present and there is just something about Chanel lipsticks that feels so luxurious, the shade Cambon is similar to Joyride but not as bright but still lovely. It isn't drying and doesn't transfer too much.
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Cherries in The Snow - I've wanted to get this shade for a while as i'm a big fan of Revlon lip product. This one is definitely bright and a lovely red toned pink. If you're not a fan of red lips I would recommend giving this one a go, the formula is lovely and creamy too. 
Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in 107 - This one was a stand out favourite last year and I think it will be this year as well. It is the perfect matte plum shade which even though it is a matte formula isn't drying on the lips at all. This can be applied lightly as a stain or full on for the perfect plum lip. 
Revlon Lip Butter in Raspberry Pie - I'm a huge fan of the Revlon Lip Butters and I have a few darker shades that I love but this one is the stand out favourite. As the name suggest this is a lovely raspberry shade which has a slight shimmer too it. It gives a glossy finish that is very moisturising on the lips, the wear time is surprisingly good too. 
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Crush - Another berry offering, I love a good stain because it means you're not having to reapply all the time. This is definitely my favourite as is a more subtle version of the Kate Moss 107 lipstick so perfect for the day time. 
MAC Lustre Lipstick in Plumful - I'm a big fan of the Lustre finish by MAC as they're moisturising and have more of a sheer finish to them. Plumful is a lovely plum shade which feels like you're only wearing a lip balm and perfect for adding a good bit of colour to dry lips. 

So those are my stand out darker lips for this Autumn and Winter no doubt I will pick up a few more before the season is over. What are you favourite bolder lip products for this time of year?
