The fall season is in full swing and I am glad things are getting better and I am out of my sweat pants, families are getting together with dinner out in the restaurants. I am happy to say that I’m wearing more makeup than last year and today sharing this post for all nude mauve lipstick lovers. I am a peachy + pinky nude lipstick lover by heart but for the fall season, I swap them for a deeper mauve shade to add compliment to my fall looks. Most of these mauve shades may look similar but they all have different tones and looks different once applied on lips.
There are quite some new lipstick launches with amazing formulas and carries great mauve shades that I decided to share with you all. Almost all of these formulas are hydrating and don’t emphasize lines or especially prep before application but if you have dry patches you need to exfoliate before application. At the same time, I have included a couple of my all-time favourite shades that I repurchase in this post. You can find side-by-side swatches at the end of this post.
Le Rouge Sheer Velvet Matte Lipstick in Nude Fume
This is a long-wearing matte lipstick with medium coverage dressed in an exceptional, sumptuous pink velvet case. This formula has a very velvety and hydrating finish that doesn’t dry out the lips as well as doesn’t emphasize lines on the lips while the lasting power is quite exceptional. I find the shade is very unique with a warm under tone and carries that pure rosewood shade with some pink.

Rouge Dior Lipstick in
This has been one of my favourite lipstick formulas for the past year. This formula has been featured on the blog in this post. The formula is hydrating and wears well on the lips. I knew I wanted a new shade from the collection and this is a perfect mauve with a light brown undertone that doesn’t disturb the rosewood shade at all.

Power Move Hydrating Soft Matte Lipstick in Suger Bun
This is a clean and vegan formula that glides on smoothly and feels like butter on lips. It has a very hydrating velvet matte texture with amazing lasting power. The formula feels weightless on lips with a non-drying feel. It has that perfect pinky rosewood shade that looks incredible on lips.
Details: C$37.00 Available at Sephora
Modern Matte Powder Lipstick in Disorbed
This is an Allure Award-winning formula that I was introduced by the brand by sending their holiday collection (reviewed here). The shade Disorbed has been one of my all-time favourite shades since then and the formula is hydrating with great lasting power.

Matte Revolution Lipstick – Super Nudes Collection in Super Model
Charlotte Tilbury has always been something to pick when it comes to lipsticks especially when it’s associated with a nude shade. The shade Super Model from her latest Super Nude Collection is a perfect rosewood nude shade. The formula is creamy, long-wear and has buildable coverage. I love to pair it with the Lip Cheat Lip Liner in Pillow Talk.

Yves Saint Laurent
ROUGE VOLUPTÉ SHINE
This is a Limited Edition of Rouge Volupte Shine, dressed in a wild leopard print. It’s semi-sheer but buildable, with a lustrous shine that adds fullness to the lips. I am a huge YSL lipstick lover and this one comes in a perfect package for me. The colour, finish, formula and packaging are STUNNING!! It’s a perfect soft pink rosewood shade that is flattering on all skin tones and looks incredible on lips. You can top this on any of the lipsticks above and this will finish it just unbelievably beautiful. It pairs well with the Dessin Des Levres Lip Liner Pencil in Rose Fume.

I hope you find that perfect rosewood shade for this fall season. Since many have a different skin tone I tried to do a side by side comparison swatches on me as well as close together. I also shared lipliners that go well with the lipsticks. I always thrive to find new shades especially when it comes to rosewood colour range so if you have a shade, you can comment below – I would love to find it out.
