Rock Berry Lips This AW: Affordable and Luxury Options

It seems that I have written quite a few features about berry & plum lips. Including this and this but I don’t think I’ve ever shared my affordable and luxury picks.

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)?

Berry Lips for AW Affordable and Luxury Options Tom Ford and Rimmel

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

Nails Of The Day: Rimmel Lasting Finish Fruities Nail Polish in Strawberry Fizz

I encourage my friends and readers to experiment with the colours they wear. So I thought I should do it, too! This is why I went out and bought this barbie pink nail polish.

Now seriously, me wearing such nail polish is like a lady with a  very conservative taste wearing a black nail polish.

I only love pink in lip  products and blushes, everywhere else – it’s a big n0-no for me!

My favourite pinkish nail polish is Rimmel’s Funtime Fuchsia  but it is more of a bright fuchsia pink. I also have Essence Vip Appeal which is like a dusty pink . It was a huge deal for me to wear it.

I am a big fan of

My Favourite Glosses and Lipsticks for Everyday

I don’t really do nude lips, there are several nude lipsticks that I like but I rarely use them. My everyday lips would be baby pink or clear glosses or the new glossy lipsticks. I also love light coral and peaches and bright matte lips but light pinks/clear glosses would be my choice for an everyday look.

There are so many that I love but I have decided to choose only eight. I love high end glosses for my personal use but I understand that not everyone can afford it so I’ve chosen three much cheaper lip products that I love, too.

Since these are my favourite products I have already written about all of them so I will just include the links to my reviews.

My favourite gloss of all times would have to be Chanel Mica glossimer which you can probably tell by how well used it is, my second favourite is KissKiss Crystal Pearl by Guerlain.

My most favourite affordable lip gloss is Demure by Rimmel which is discontinued but I have backups.

Other lip glosses/lipsticks from the photo are:

My Top 5 Nail Polishes for Autumn/Winter

I’ve decided to show you my “Top 5” nail polishes for Autumn/Winter. It was actually very hard to choose only five, but these are definitely my favourites.

Rimmel Blue Vogue

One of my favourite nail polishes. It is a sophisticated dark blue with subtle shimmer. I adore the wide brush, the formula and the staying power. Here is me wearing it on the nails.

Illamasqua Viridian

It is probably my favourite nail varnish out of all that I have! The formula, the shade and the staying power are fantastic! I don’t think I could love it more. Maybe if the brush was wider… You can see me wearing it here.

Revlon Red

I had to include a

Nails Of The Day: Rimmel Lycra PRO in Desire

After I was so impressed with Rimmel’s Lycra Pro nail polish in  Blue Vogue I’ve decided to get  some new shades so I’ve got myself a 393 shade called Desire.

And it is also amazing! It is opaque with only one coat, the wide brush (which is probably my favourite brush ever) makes the application very easy and fast without any streaks or any other imperfections.

On the photo I wear two coats of nail polish and Seche Vite

This particular colour is stunning, I would describe it as a burgundy on a black base and I am a huge fan of such shades.

I really  wish there were more shades in this line as these nail polishes are perfect in my opinion, especially for the price(£4.59).
