Holy-Grail Autumn Lip Colour

This little beauty has been my go-to autumnal lip for about 3 years now. I’m going to go ahead and say that’s enough groundwork to have earnt it’s “holy-grail” status.

Revlon’s Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Crush is (extra-long name, aside) perfect. Initially, I was weary of the balm characteristic as, to be honest, I’m pretty unreliable when it comes to reapplying my lip colour. Bold dark lips probably shouldn’t be my thing then, right? 
Alas my caution was unwarranted, this stuff is balm-like in that it's moisturising and smooth to apply, that's it. 'Stain' really is the key word. I am able to apply this once, go about my day and still be channelling those autumn vibes by dinner time.
In fact, a few weeks ago I was out with my boyfriend's family for the day. We ate, drank and talked for hours and hours. At times I felt a bit aware of the bold colour on my face but there's something that strikes me as a bit vain about pulling my mirror out mid convo to look at myself...even if only to check the damage! So, mirrors avoided I just hoped for the best and when time came to say goodbye someone said "I am just so impressed by your lipstick, it's stayed on the whole day". Once the crowd had left and I was brave enough to pull out the mirror I noticed that she was right - it looked pretty much exactly the same as it had hours before.
Great work, Revlon, have a PSL on me.
What's your favourite autumn/winter lip colour?
