Two to Try: Berry Lipsticks


I've really gotten into experimenting with more colourful lip products lately, and with the Autumn/Winter season well and truly upon us, two shades in particular are getting a lot of wear. If you're looking to venture into more seasonal, daring colours these two are a fantastic starting point!

Always Plum from the Maybelline SuperStay 14hr range is a real favourite, with a fairly nude hue darkened by brown and pink tones. Applied fully the colour is fairly dark but still safe enough for daytime wear and compliments autumnal clothes wonderfully. I also dab the colour on with my finger for a stained look if I don't want to wear anything heavy. It has to be said that the formula feels thick, but it really does have great staying power.

I usually lean towards a matte finish when it comes to lip products, however Rimmel's Lasting Finish Lipstick in shade #30 has proven that your average-finish lipstick can look great. It's not overly shiny and the colour packs an insane punch. The bright berry is probably best saved for night wear for the less daring, but again looks great applied as a light stain for daytime. The staying power is good however there's a lot of transfer so beware of accidental smudging. It's definitely best applied with a brush which can be tedious but the colour pay-off is so worth it.

I've swatched them here: L-R Always Plum (full), Always Plum (stain), #30 (full), #30 (stain).
