Wear Berries!

SAM_5487

I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned this in a few recent posts but lately I have been quite obsessed with berry lips. A berry lip is just the perfect shade for fall in my opinion. Lately I came across a berry lipstick, that I’ve been absolutely loving and which I really want to share with you guys.

Today’s post is all about the Essence long wearing lipstick in Wear Berries. Essence has really been impressing me with their products because they are pretty good quality for a ridiculously affordable price. You may have noticed this as I’ve mentioned quite a few of their products on here lately but truth is I just really like them.

So… Wear Berries is not your typical berry shade, I would say. It’s a bit more on the plum/purple side, but nevertheless it is a gorgeous shade for fall. The finish of this lipstick is not entirely matte but it’s not glossy either. I’d say it’s somewhere in between and probably more of a satin finish if that makes any sense. Sorry, I’m just not the best at describing those things. However, I really do like the formula. It feels quite moisturizing on my lips and it’s not drying at all, which is pretty awesome since it’s getting a lot colder now and I know a lot of you probably have problems with dry lips (including myself). You just don’t want your lips to look messy and dry, so this is definitely a plus.

The packaging is fairly simple. It comes in a sleek black tube and in the middle of it there’s a stripe of the color of the actual lipstick. I’d say it even comes quite close to how the lipstick actually looks on your lips.

Here’s a swatch.

I’ve really been liking this lipstick and even though it is quite the bold color there’s just something about this lipstick, which makes it very wearable throughout day time for me. I love how you can just quickly smack some of this on your lips without making a huge mess. It lasts a fair share amount of time, so you don’t have to constantly reapply it.

If you’re looking to try out different lipstick shades for fall I’d definitely recommend this one as it’s a lovely color and very affordable.

Have you tried any Essence lipsticks? What did you think?

Pink Beauty – A Fall Favorite

Quite a lot of my recent post are revolving around fall but fall is officially here and one of my favorite seasons. Now some people like to change up their make up depending on what season it is and I’m definitely one of them. While I love bright pinks in the summer I tend to store them away once the days get shorter and the nights get darker. During fall and winter I totally love a darker lip. One of my favorite shades especially in fall is a darker pink berry kind of shade. Hence I thought I’d share one of my favorite lipsticks for fall with you guy. And guess what? It’s really affordable as well.

The lipstick I’m talking about today is the Maybelline ColorSensational in 190 Atomic Pink. I’m quite the fan to the colorsensationals in general as I’m in love with their formulae. They aren’t exactly matte but not too glossy either and they feel super moisturizing on the lips. I know I get really dry lips once it gets colder, so I think it’s nice to have a lipstick that moisturises as well. As much as I love my Mac matte lipsticks they sometimes require too much effort. At times you just want to smack on a bit of color without having to worry that your lips are turning into a total mess because you didn’t moisturise them enough. With this lipstick you’re definitely on the safe side because it doesn’t stick to any dry patches.

But now let’s talk about the actual color of this lipstick. How gorgeous is this dark pink shade? I think it’s beautiful. In my opinion it’s the perfect berry shade, which makes it the perfect lipstick for fall because I love berry shades during fall. I don’t know what it is about that color but I think it’s so fitting for fall. I adore dark red lips as well but I tend to wear those more towards November or the winter months (with a few exceptions here and then) Here’s a little swatch for you guys.

If you’re looking for a nice berry shade for fall I can only recommend this one. The shade is beautiful, it’s fairly long lasting, affordable and I think it’s a shade that would suit a lot of people.

What are your favorite fall lipstick shades?
