My Favourite Berry Shades

Throughneweyesx Autumn/Winter Lipstick Swatches
Throughneweyesx Autumn/Winter Lipstick Swatches

I'm a berry shade person all year round really, so the Autumn/Winter trend isn't new to me. I just love the look of a dark lipstick whether it's with a tan or if I'm ghostly pale (like right now). I also tend to prefer the softer finishes in Winter as my lips are always so dry, but I still brave out a matte lipstick then chew it off later and regret it..

Throughneweyesx Autumn/Winter Lipstick Swatches
Left to Right: Mac Odyssey, Mac Diva, Mac Hang-Up and YSL Rouge Volupte 18.

YSL Rouge Volupte 18 - Is a deep red colour with a sheen finish. This is the most moisturising out of the bunch even though it is the most transparent once applied. I love the scent of these too, it reminds me of parma violets mmm. These are more expensive than Mac lipsticks at £26, but I think the packaging makes up for it!

Odyssey - Is a plum shade with a frost finish, which is what gives it it's glitter look finish. It does need topped up throughout the day with it only being a frost finish but it is also really easy to reapply and doesn't cause any build up like some matte lips do. 

Hang-Up - Is a deep berry shade with a creamsheen finish. It is pretty much identical to Diva, but with a different finish which is probably why I love it so much. I'm a Diva addict and this is the easy version. With this being a creamsheen finish you don't need a liner as it doesn't bleed like a lot of Mac lipsticks. It lasts a few hours leaving a nice stain, but does need reapplied throughout the day.

Diva - As for this one, it seems to be everyones favourite at the moment. I do understand why, as you just feel amazing once you put it on. Seeing as it is a matte shade, it's not the easiest shade to apply. You need to ensure your lips aren't dry and have been exfoliated otherwise it just doesn't apply properly. But it just looks fab with Mac's Nightmoth liner and is my all time favourite Mac shade so far.

  2. I'm obsessed with Diva, definitely my favourite berry shade! Love dark lipsticks!

  3. I love Rebel, which is a little more purple than red and probably doesn't count as a berry shade but close enough! I haven't tried any others, I don't think Berry shades suit me! Love the post :) Anthea ||
