A/W | The Berry Lipstick Edit
As the season changes, so does the colour on my lips. During the Winter, I find that I can dare to wear a dark shade on my lips, without the risk of humidity or sweat (attractive I know) ruining my perfectly lined, filled and polished lip. In Autumn and Winter I tend to go for more vampy, berry shades in order to try and inject some colour. I've collected quite a few berry shades over the years, but 2014/2015 has definitely been the year I discovered my perfect shades.
Maybelline Color Drama Lipstick | Berry Much | Link
I originally bought this as a lip liner for MAC Diva, but after one application I was impressed with the velvet finish and bold finish that it gave me. Maybelline Color Drama Lipsticks are a brilliant dupe for the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencils. With just one swipe, you can effortlessly build up a colour that is rich and opaque. For £4.99, I will definitely be buying more from this range and am pleased to add this to my berry shade collection.
Topshop Lip Bullet | Wine Gum | Link
I did a full review of this product a while back (Here) and I have been loving it ever since. Even though the packaging is no longer looking pristine, I still swear by this shade when wanting a lipstick to be suitable for when I want to switch between day and night looks. I have been finding the darker the lip shade, the more drying the formula is, however I never find that my lips are pinning for moisture after I apply this.
MAC Lipstick | Diva | Diva
This was the shade that changed my opinion on MAC lipsticks as a whole. Previously I have spoken about never getting along with the super drying, badly pigmented shades that I had picked, however once I got my hands on Diva I was totally enlightened. This versitile shade is both great for day and night. I have written a review about MAC Diva (Here)
