5 Shades Of Berry Lipstick

1. Bright but Sheer Revlon lip butter in Raspberry Pie
You may have this hanging over from the summer but don't banish this to the back of your summer makeup, keep it for the days you want to inject some colour in your life on dull grey days. This is lightweight and really moisturising. It's good for those who hate wearing lipstick or those who want to experiment with bright colours as its basically a tinted lip balm that gives a sheer pop of colour.

2. Dark & Dramatic Stay Put Max Factor in Blackcurrant
this is discontinued shade but still widely available on eBay. it's almost a dupe for MAC's media and Revlon's Black Cherry. This is deep, dark, sexy and very vampy-this makes a bold statement so not for the faint hearted.

3. Budget Makeup revolution Vamp limited collection Rebel with A Cause.
This lipstick is a dupe for MAC's Rebel one of their popular shades. This shade is definitely Vampy, bright but wearable. It smells and taste like vanilla, a smell I can now tolerate (unlike mint flavoured lipstick.) It has a fair bit of slip and for a matte lipstick its not particularly dying and feels pretty comfortable to wear. Longevity is not the best but for a only a pound it's a bargain!

4.  Luxury Nars Pure Matte lipstick in Valparasio
Nars do very pigmented lipsticks, and this is matte lipstick is on trend. This matte lipstick isn't drying and sits fairly comfortably on the lips. It lasts through drinking but not a meal.

5. Wearable Helen E Long lasting lip colour in Raspberry.
This is the perfect raspberry colour, on the lips the colour looks more vampy and berry-like. It's moisturising and comfortable to wear and isn't drying on the lips. On the website the packaging looks basic and dare I say it ugly. In person the packaging looks much more sophisticated and looks as if the lipstick bullet suspended in mid air.


  1. I love berry-toned lipsticks and you've picked some stunning shades! I have to pick up Nars 'Valparasio'! That Makeup Rev colour is also gorgeous and, as you say, the quality of their lipsticks is impressive for the cheap price-tag!



    1. Nars Lipsticks are really pigmented and are one of the best brands for lipstick! They don't have much of a smell either (good for me with my allergies) unlike Mac whihc is strong vanilla! x
