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)
When I saw Burberry’s Lip & Cheek Bloom some time ago, I got really excited, as there is nothing like a good cream blush and lip product two-in-one. Finally they are here!
The texture is described as “airy and bouncy” and the formula – as “sheer and buildable”. While the finish is supposed to be matte and fresh-looking.
Don’t they just look gorgeous? After week of being sick (seriously, I don’t remember when I felt this bad for the last time), this looks like an instant pick-me-up! And I am sure they’d make anyone look better!
There are six shades to choose from:
Berry lips are my favourite actually. And, although they are super hot for AW, I can wear them at any time. And so should you, don’t limit yourself by anything… By the way, have you see the gorgeous look from Dolce & Gabbana SS15 show that Pat McGrath created (check out the photos below)?
I think every girl should own a nice berry/plum lipstick. Which one? It only depends on the shade that you prefer and your budget.
So here are two options: very different price point but are utterly divine anyway.
Tom Ford Lip Color in Bruised Plum (review and lip swatches)
Tom Ford beauty started with lipsticks, and they are still the most covetable item from his line. Luxurious packaging, TF logo, beautiful texture and flattering shades. If £37/$50 price point is something you would consider – it is an amazing “investment”. My friends are
It’s the season when berry lips are IN! And I couldn’t be happier, as I am a huge fan.
I already did a feature with my personal favourite berry lip products and here is a little selection of the berry-ish lip products that just came out for Autumn/Winter.
I have tried Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick and it is amazing so, I guess, the new glosses should be great, as well. I have chosen Merlot Vinyl – berry wine and Fuchsia Vinyl – raspberry purple. But there are a lot of other, including nude, shades.
Bite Beauty Cashmere Lip Cream
It is probably too early to write about berry lip products but, for some reason, I have been talking (with my girlfriends) about such shades quite a lot recently.
This is why I’ve decided to pick some of my favourites from those that I have with different finishes and price point, so there is something for everyone.
So here we go…
Clarins Joli Rouge Lipstick in 738 Royal Plum
I have written about this lipstick only recently. It is a part of the upcoming Clarins’ Fall collection. It is a gorgeous plum shade with a satin finish. Not very intense but not sheer at all, just spot on!
butter LONDON Lippy in La Moss
I absolutely love the name and the vampy shade of this gloss, so sexy! Just keep in mind that the application can be a bit tricky, it takes time to get an even coverage. But it’s so worth it! Dark vinyl lips, perfect for those who are not afraid to go for it.
ArtDeco Lip Laquer 40 Rosy Tribute
This is a lighter in shade and
