It’s officially fall and that means putting my bright pink or orange lipsticks aside and welcoming the darker colors. I will still wear my bright red lipstick since that’s a staple and year round favorite of mine. However, I’m incorporating more warm tones, especially anything in the plum and burgundy family!
I was heading out to a birthday dinner for a new friend of mine, Melissa J. Nixon! She’s a blogger, inspirational speaker and writer. Check her out here.
I wanted a vampy look for this occasion and big, fluffy hair. My old navy lace top inspired me to wear one of my favorite lip colors- Rimmel London lipstick in Bordeaux. This is a dupe to the more expensive NARS brand. Their Bordeaux lipstick retails at Sephora for $32.00. The Rimmel line retails around $4.99 and is sold at various drug stores. Now, that’s a huge difference in pricing, but don’t let the inexpensive price tag fool you! The Rimmel line does the job. The color is rich, it’s well pigmented and it lasts for several hours.

The dinner was great, and although my hair was ruined by the rain, my lipstick stayed on even after I ate some of the delicious birthday cake!
