Berry lips are undoubtedly the biggest Autumn/Winter trend. Ranging from deep matte berry shades to brighter berry shades. All brands, be it high-end or high street, have some dedicated berry shades to suit your needs.
I’ve been a more MAC Rebel kinda girl previously in Autumn/Winter months, so this year I thought I’d give something else a go. Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in 18 Violine Strass*, £7.99 is a lovely deep berry shade with golden shimmers. The shimmers are really tiny, so doesn’t show on the lip swatch but adds a golden shine to the lipstick. It has a super shiny and nourishing formula. The super creamy formula means your lips are well hydrated. It didn't dry out my lips at all!
I love the glossy finish as it’s a nice change from my usual matte lipsticks. And I find that it really stands out so I can go quite minimal with the rest of my look. Due to the creamy formula, the wear time is quite average, about 3-4 hours. It wears evenly and doesn’t creep into the creases of your lips making them look awful!
Bourjois is one of my favourite brands from the high street, and I never tried their lipsticks! Safe to say, they haven’t disappointed in the slightest. It’s a lovely colour for the season and the formula is perfect too. I might have to pick up a few other shades!
