If this is the first time you’re hearing about the Lipstick Bandits, this post should suffice for an introduction.
After a lot of digging around our massive lipstick wardrobes, we present to you our must-have lipstick for fall. When I think of fall, I think of girls with perfectly berry-stained lips. Berry lips are incredibly flattering on all skin tones, and of course MAC’s vast lipstick line would have something that is perfection. My pick is MAC Lipstick in Amorous ($17.50).

MAC’s description of Amorous cracks me up; they call it a “lovestruck cranberry.” *snickers* Whatever. It’s a beautiful hidden gem from their permanent collection. Amorous is from MAC’s Satin line — a semi-matte, pigmented and long-wearing formula. I wore her for the first time for IMATS Toronto this weekend and fell in love. After a solid nine hours, its pigment hugged my lips without drying them out or settling into fine lines. I can’t even believe I don’t own other Satins in my lipstick collection.

It’s one of those colors that makes you feel instantly put together even without a lot of eye makeup. However I chose to pair it with an antique gold — Illamasqua Pure Pigment in Ore — for a very autumnal and flattering palette. Oh how I love berries and golds!

P.S. How have you been? Sorry I haven’t been around that much lately. I have so many things that I want to do with this makeup thing, and first I want to get an online portfolio started. What do you think of ArianneMakeup.ca, or MakeupByArianne.ca?
