Although I personally love berry and plum shades all year round, they look especially nice in Autumn/Winter. Recently my friend asked me what lipstick I was wearing as she really loved it, and was surprised to hear that it was Maybelline. This made me think that I should write about affordable berry lipsticks that I would recommend. So here are three different options…
Bourjois Color Boost Glossy Finish Lipstick in 06 Plum Russian (review and lip swatches)
It is a gorgeous glossy plum which feels comfortable on the lips, and is super easy to apply as it comes in a crayon form. You can get a sheer colour pay-off or layer it for an intense effect. It can also be worn on top of other lipsticks if you want to create an extra sheen/gloss. The other day my Mum saw this lipstick, and loved so it much, that now I have to get a new one for myself (as she “borrowed” mine) .
Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in 107 (review and lip swatc hes)
Since we were talking about lipsticks yesterday, I thought that’d be a good idea to share about the lipstick which is a part of Clarins’ Autumn collection.
I was sent Rouge Eclat in the shade 22 Red Paprika (there is also one called 21 Tawny Rose).
Clarins lip products are fantastic, and Rouge Eclat is not an exception. It feels amazing on the lips, almost like a lip balm but with an intense colour. According to the brand, it protects against dehydration, and boosts collagen. And in reality Rouge Eclat one of those lipsticks that feel comfortable on and stay on nicely, without any drying.
My friend who is not a lipstick wearer who tried this lipstick was impressed that the formula makes it really easy to apply the product as it glides on and doesn’t make a mess.

My friends ask me all the time about my favourite high-street makeup products, and I have realized that I haven’t posted a top 5 [affordable makeup products] feature in ages (See previous ones here and here)… So here we go!
Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in Alluring Rose (review and cheek swatches)
If I had to choose only one product out of these – it’d be the blush. Regular readers know how many blushes I own, and the fact that I’ve barely touched any other in months says it all. Creme Puff Blushes are dreamy! Soft and creamy, they blend beautifully and look gorgeous on the skin. I am a convert, and I have recommended it to a lot of my girlfriends, too. There are six shades in the range and I have swatches of three (click the link above). I can’t recommend these enough!
Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick in 45 (review and lip swatches)
Being a fan of Rimmel Kate Moss lipsticks I knew I’d love theRead More
Since I am such a huge fan of Rimmel Kate Moss original and matte lipsticks, it was just a matter of time till I’d get one from their newest nude collection. If you follow me on Instagram, you could already see all the beauties.
There are five shades in general and I loved N45 the best, as it is a cool toned mauve-ish nude.The lipstick comes in a cool nude tube with a silver details and white Kate signature.
The formula is great, it gives a light coverage which can be layered for a more intense colour. It goes on smoothly and has a beautiful sheen. I don’t find itRead More
My favourite red lipstick at the moment? Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick in 01 Personne Ne Rouge.
It has a pretty cool design, and the applicator makes it easy to use the product and, I find, that is goes on smoothly and evenly.
The formula is great. It feels light and non-greasy on the lips. You can apply one layer for a lightly-stained effect or several – for an intense colour pay-off. It takes some time to set but when it is set – it has that nice matte finish which is not flat of lifeless, like some matte.
I also like the fact that evenRead More
