Valentine’s Day seems to bring out either the red statement lip or pretty pink lips. I wanted to bring something different to the mix, a berry lip. Let’s call this the alternative red lip.
If you’re looking to go on a night out on Valentine’s or really look glam, keep reading. The focus is very much on the berry lips and golden eye makeup.

The gold eyes really compliment the deep berry lips. I opted for the Too Faced Melted lipstick as it is so long lasting. It lasts through pretty much anything without smudging! There were some transfer to mugs etc but it didn’t take the colour away or smudge. It didn’t dry my lips out or cling to any patches. The pigmentation is insane! Even the tiniest bit gives intense colour payoff. Comfortable, long lasting and beautiful lip colour, could you ask for more from a lipstick?
