Buildable Berry Lips: from sheer to bold

Buildable Berry: from sheer to bold

This fall, its all about those berry lips so here’s a collection from the most sheer to that daring matte bold:

Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey –  A cult classic for a reason, this formula delivers a warm wash of color that just make your lips look better. This was actually the first lipstick I ever bought (ah, nostalgia) and I have used this shade for many a bride ever since. If you are at all reluctant at the whole prospect of a berry lip, this is the shade for you.

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 in Berry – The name says it all but while this might look like just a fancy chapstick, Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments deliver on three fronts: sun protection, lip hydration, and color payoff. The berry shade is especially saturated while still technically being sheer but I must warn you, once you buy one of these, you will want one in every freaking color. They are the Lays potato chips of the tinted lip balm industry.

Bobbi Brown Art Stick in Bright Raspberry – If the shade works all year round and the formula is designed to be used on lip and cheeks, my only question is why is it not in your purse right now? Huh?!? Yes, I am giving you some serious side eye right now…

Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon in Framboise – New to the market, these smooth-like-butta crayons feel incredible and look even better. They are also made with organic ingredients and are gluten free which is HUGE for the natural beauty market.

Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge in 10 Raspberry – When you don’t want your lipstick to move AT ALL then you need to get your hands on MUFE’s Aqua Rouge. HANDS DOWN the best water-proof and kiss-proof lip stick/stain EVER – I speak from experience 😉

Everyone from Lupita Nyong’o to Joan Smalls to Beyoncé to Selena Gomez was rocking some derivative of this shade on their lips, eyes or even in their gown.

Bobbi Travels Light

Bobbi Brown represents the every woman – Classic AND fun –  retro AND modern – chic AND funky. We are all women and we are all beautiful but what makes Bobbi unique is her ability to listen to women and give them what they need to be their MOST beautiful. There are a few items I’ve had since the dawn of cosmetic time from Ms. Brown like her Shimmer Brick, Creamy Concealer, and Foundation Stick but whether you are a fan or not, you owe it to yourself to try two of her latest (and possibly greatest) products.

That infamous gel liner is finally available in an über convenient pencil. Pictured here are Pitch Black and Chocolate Truffle
