THE AUTUMN BERRY LIP

13/09/2015

As much as we all wish summer wasn't disappearing so fast, I think we are all secretly excited about autumn. For anyone like me, being able to pull out my dark berry lipsticks is something I have been waiting for for a long time. I love a berry lip in the autumn, but it is definitely a seasonal thing, it doesn't work in the summer.





My favourite autumn berry lipstick is MAC's Rebel. It is a slightly more pinky purple once applied to the lips. I absolutely adore the colour because it goes so well with my skin tone and goes really well with the majority of the eye shadows that I have in my autumn collection. I also find that it lasts a whole lot longer than the majority of my other lipsticks. This is definitely because it leaves a stain, which some people hate and some people don't mind (like me).

I must admit that dark lipsticks do slightly scare me. We have all seen that dreadful smudged dark lipstick look, and it isn't a good one. I always use a lip liner to somewhat try to combat that fear because I always find that using a lip liner makes a better application than just using the lip stick. But undoubtedly, I still manage to mess it up quite often and I end up having to start again. The liner that I use is KIKO's precision lip pencil in the shade 308 Bordeaux, which I love. The formula is really creamy and it is super pigmented, which is so important for a lip liner.

I am definitely considering investing in another berry lipstick in a slightly more burgundy/darker shade, like the Charlotte Tilbury Glastonberry. It is such a popular autumn lip shade and I absolutely adore it.

Are there any autumn lipsticks that you are currently craving? What is in your collection?
