3 Affordable Berry Lipsticks for Autumn

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…

3 Affordable Berry Lipsticks for Autumn Rimmel, Maybelline and Bourjois

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) .

Want It: Givenchy Rouge a Porter Lipstick

Regular readers know that I am the biggest fan of Givenchy Le Rouge lipstick, this is why I am super excited about the launch of Rouge A Porter version.

I’ve found a great variant  – Max Factor Xperience Boutique Sheer Gloss Balm( £7.99). Which are described as “sheer colour of a gloss, combined with the soft feel of a balm.”

These come in 3 shades: Coral, Pink Oys Shell and Pink Opal. And I was given 2 shades to try and, as I liked them  a lot – I want to share with you.

First of all I have to say that I like the  design and the fact that it’s a slim lipstick as I love  slim lipsticks, they always look chic and elegant to me. It is easy to apply the product as it glides on and leaves the lips moisturized and shiny.

I love both shades which I have, 02 Coral is a light shimmering pink which is just  my kind of colour, it gives a sheer coverage and you can apply it on the go without a mirror as it is very subtle.

As for the 07 Pink Oys Shell, it is a warm
