Re: Fall Cozy Challenge: Tag your fave fall lip and join us for a new prompt every week!

Hmm, fragrance is another category I don't restrict by season. Well, except for certain fragrances that evoke a holiday or specific seasonal event. I suppose smoky leathery incense could be a fall fragrance... smoky scents remind me sometimes of fireplaces lit in late fall, bonfires at cider mills with a warm cider donut in one hand and a mug of hot cider or hot cocoa in the other, or burning leaves. When I was a little kid in suburban Michigan, one of my neighbors regularly burned fallen leaves each autumn and it's still one of my favorite scents. 

 

If I'm gonna talk about smoky leathery incense, I gotta talk about Papillon Anubis. It's the king of this fragrance category, as far as I'm concerned. I wear Anubis throughout the year. I've even worn it to bed several times as a sleep aid: warm, dark, mysterious, even a bit mystic, with jasmine woven into the comfy blanket of this fragrance. It's a comforting hug to me. It can be overpowering if you get trigger happy with it: this is a funky animalistic jasmine that will knock people back if overused. I went through 3 samples of Anubis before buying a full size bottle, and now it's forever a rebuy. Few fragrances are more perfectly named than this one. 

 

For a fragrance Sephora carries: KILIAN Paris Black Phantom - "Memento Mori" 1.7 oz/ 50 mL Eau de Parfum Spray is still one of my faves to pair with a super smoky scent like Le Labo Patchouli 24. On its own, Black Phantom smells like sweetened coffee blended with toasted nuts and served in a charred—perhaps still smoking—rum barrel. I wear it on one arm and Patchouli 24 on the other arm. Patchouli 24 smells straight up like a bbq smoke pit, so it lends a sturdy backbone to Black Phantom. I love the combo.

Not sure I could wear a scent that reminds me of bbq to bed, @WinglessOne. I might be too hungry to fall asleep.

Re: Fall Cozy Challenge: Tag your fave fall lip and join us for a new prompt every week!

@eshoe  Oh, I don't wear Pachouli 24 to bed (or Black Phantom, for that matter). I love smoky fragrances, but Pachouli 24's not the right kind of smoke for bedtime. 😂 

Re: Fall Cozy Challenge: Tag your fave fall lip and join us for a new prompt every week!

Totally lol’d @WinglessOne 

Re: Fall Cozy Challenge: Tag your fave fall lip and join us for a new prompt every week!

I wish they would bring this back Bath and Body Works Vanilla Mocha Cafe. I also get cozy vibes from Maison Margiela 'REPLICA' Coffee Break Eau de Toilette Travel Spray 0.34 oz/ 10 mL Eau de Toilette S... 

Re: Fall Cozy Challenge: Tag your fave fall lip and join us for a new prompt every week!

Coffee Break is one of my favorite cooler weather scents @SportyGirly125@faeriegirl helped me fall in love with that one😉

Sneaking in a few more "fall colors" of lipstick... I was cleaning up my Apple photo album and found a few more throwback lip swatches for this thread. But I'll post just one of them. 

 

This is Bite Amuse Bouche Kale with Bite Lip Pencil 052. [ EDIT: wait, the liner might be MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Color Pencil: Eye, Lip & Brow Pencil 300 Absolute Emerald instead. I always use one or the other with Kale. ] Kale is one of my favorite shades ever, but also a chronic bleeder. Luckily, 052 is a near-perfect shade match that helps control the bleed. If Bite ever brings back the Amuse Bouche line, I hope Kale (or something similar) is in the shade lineup. Sure, I can custom-blend this blackened teal at home with MAC, Inglot, and/or Danessa Myricks pigments—but that doesn't help me when I'm on the go and want to touch up my lip color. Sigh...

And here's a whole bunch of hand/arm swatches I've posted in various BIC threads. I'm sure teals are more winter than fall to some (okay, many) people, but to me they're year-round like all other shades. 💙💚

Thanks to this exercise, I'm surprised by how many swatches I've posted for people in the last 3 years! 🤣 I'd tidy up my BIC photo album if I could move all those swatch photos into a "Swatches" album without breaking the existing photo URLs in threads.

What a fabulous lippie, @WinglessOne!! 💄 Great look!! 💙 And so many swatches!!

Re: Fall Cozy Challenge: Tag your fave fall lip and join us for a new prompt every week!

@WinglessOne -- you read my mind! I was also thinking of greens & teals and navy-- back in my misspent youth, people brought out their navy coats, skirts and blouses in autumn, as well as their tan, brown, grey or rusty colored suede clothes-- those colors still mean Fall to me. 

 

 Love all the swatches! Some of those black-ish lippies have been on my radar for a while. We're so lucky to have all the choices now instead of having to buy an extra liner pencil just for our for lips, like in the 80s. 

Re: Fall Cozy Challenge: Tag your fave fall lip and join us for a new prompt every week!

Thanks @heavyhedon ! Heh, a couple years ago (in The Before Times) one of my building's front desk workers and I chatted with a younger tenant in the lobby, and we told her how the only reliable way to get black lipstick in the 80s was to use black eyeliner. It was a true multipurpose beauty product: eyeliner, cream eyeshadow, lipstick, brow pencil, beauty mark maker (for folks who were into that), and temporary face tattoo. I can't even imagine how many black eyeliner pencils I used that decade. I don't remember when Wet'n'Wild released a black lipstick, but I was thrilled to find it in a drugstore one day. 🤣

 Fall was made for pulling out the black lipstick! One I have is Elf Lipstick in Black Out; one I'd love to try is KVD Beauty Everlasting Longwear Liquid Lipstick Witches

Love this lippie look on you, @heavyhedon!! 🖤

Re: Fall Cozy Challenge: Tag your fave fall lip and join us for a new prompt every week!

@heavyhedon , absolutely gorgeous on you. Black lipstick is hard, but you rock it like a champ!!!

Re: Fall Cozy Challenge: Tag your fave fall lip and join us for a new prompt every week!

My favorite fall lip product is the lip color I wore on my wedding day. MAC Plumful is a beautiful cool toned pinky plum that wears so well. I usually prefer warm terracotta/rust shades but this gorgeous one has my heart.

What a beautiful lippie, @mishanyc!! 💄

Re: Fall Cozy Challenge: Tag your fave fall lip and join us for a new prompt every week!

@mishanyc what a lovely memory! What terracotta shades have you fallen in love with? I love them too, it is just a challenge to find ones that don’t also ‘enhance’ your teeth.

Re: Fall Cozy Challenge: Tag your fave fall lip and join us for a new prompt every week!

What a lovely shade @mishanyc , and what a perfect memory for your wedding ! 

Re: Fall Cozy Challenge: Tag your fave fall lip and join us for a new prompt every week!

@mishanyc, I want to shop that lippie stash of yours. I spy some pretties in that pic! 😍

Re: Fall Cozy Challenge: Tag your fave fall lip and join us for a new prompt every week!

Super pretty lipstick, @mishanyc, I can see why you love it.

Re: Fall Cozy Challenge: Tag your fave fall lip and join us for a new prompt every week!

@heavyhedon Thank you. I'm looking forward to wearing it again come Fall. 

Re: Fall Cozy Challenge: Tag your fave fall lip and join us for a new prompt every week!

Too hard to pick just one fave fall lip product. 💄 I've been rotating through these 4 lippies quite a bit over the last couple of weeks. 🍃🍂
