NARS Larger Than Life Lip Gloss in Rouge Tribal

I was out shopping and this color caught my eye from yards away. It’s completely opaque, glossy as can be, and it’s got a bronze shimmer to it. It’s a bold color only for those daring enough to wear it! Pair it with some black liner and mascara, and it’s the perfect look for an autumn night out.

Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in 17 Plum and Eyeshadow in Wine Red 49

It’s waterproof and it’s highly-pigmented… What more could you ask for in a cream shadow? You can always count on Make Up For Ever to bring you the richest shades, and this slightly shimmery oxblood hue is just that: Super rich. I’m a big fan of the plum smokey eye this season, so I would recommend using this as your base! If you’re going for something matte, the eyeshadow in Wine Red 49 is the perfect shade. Don’t be afraid to wear this rich red hue on your lids… It’s a showstopper!

KAT VON D Painted Love Lipstick in Rosary

I’m not usually a fan of Kat Von D makeup, nor am I very familiar with the collection, but this lipstick might change that! The truest oxblood shade I’ve found yet, this lipstick is matte and 100% opaque. Blow oxblood kisses (or leave them on an unsuspecting gentleman!) in this sexy shade all winter long.

NCLA Nail Lacquer in “Without Me, There’s No VIP!”

At first look, this polish looks a little more eggplant than oxblood… But when it goes on, it dresses your nails in the perfect deep red tone. This metallic polish is my pick for the season!

Tarte LipSurgence™ Lip Tint in Moody

If you’re looking for something a little more sheer, this lip tint is it. It’s a jumbo pencil, but make no mistake: It packs a megadose of hydration for your lips. (If you’re like me and you apply rosebud salve to your lips every half hour, this lip tint is for you!) And the color is still true to the oxblood family, but it’s more sheer so you can comfortably wear it during the day.
