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)
Who doesn’t love a good matte lipstick? And MAC know how to do a good one. The brand released twelve new matte shades and they look beautiful!
- RUNWAY HIT, Light nude matte [Retro Matte]
- KINDA SEXY, Neutral pinky-rose [Matte]
- STEADY GOING, Light pink matte [Retro Matte]
- PLEASE ME, Muted-rosy-tinted pink [Matte]

- VELVET TEDDY, Deep-tone beige [Matte]

- PINK PIGEON, Bright cleanest pink [Matte]
- TROPIC TONIC, Full Power Coral [Matte]
Besides contouring and eye brow products almost every brand is brining out some kind of new lipstick this season. And it makes sense, as it it the easiest way to get into SS, beauty wise. I have already featured so many, but here are two newest offerings from butter LONDON and Clinique.
Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer ($17.50 from Sephora)
Lightweight formula with a smoothing primer, gives a bold beautiful colour and as Clinique describe it a “modern-velvet finish”. I like how each shade has a corresponding packaging. There are 16 to choose from.
butter LONDON Moisture Matte LIPPY Lipstick ($20 from Nordstrom)Read More
As promised, here is the second post about the upcoming new lipsticks for SS15. And this time it’s more of a “classic” selection, even a matte option:
Burberry Kisses (£25 from Harrods)
“The weightless gel texture formula delivers a customisable make-up result – a single kiss of colour gives understated luminosity, two or three kisses gives intense depth and vibrancy. Enriched with a blend of tea, lavender and rosehip.”

Tom Ford lipsticks are as luxurious, as it gets! They are just the best in everything – formula, packaging, performance. I love my Bruised Plum as much, as you possible can like a lipstick. Read – I am slightly obsessed.
This is why the newest release from Mr. Ford made my beauty loving heart beat faster, which doesn’t happen that often these days, as I see new products literally every day.
So, the new TF lipsticks are called Lip Color Matte. There are 8 shades so far, with two being a Limited Edition.
