Berry Lips

This Fall, one of my beauty essentials has been a berry lip.  Whether you go subtle with a sheer gloss or balm or bold with a matte lipstick, it’s on trend and absolutely fabulous.  Here are a four that I’ve tried and happen to absolutely love.

In order from sheer to matte/bold:  Clinique Black Honey Duo // Tarte Pencil // NARS Gloss (Rouge Tribal is so cool.) // NARS Scarlet Empress Lipstick

P.S.  Gift Guide season has officially begun!  I put together a pretty little gift guide over on Savvy Home… be sure to pop over and check it out!

    Need to try the Nars and Tarte… love those Tarte sticks. Such a great injection of color!

    I think I need to grab the Clinique gloss, but I am such a sucker for NARS matte lipstick – I may just jump to a bold lip. Definitely a must try for winter!

    we’re in <3 with the berry lip trend.
    just imagine it with some great faux leather pants, sequin top, and a holiday cocktail.

    Tarte and NARS make some of my very favorite cosmetics. I’m not sure how a dark berry would look with my skin tone (and I so rarely delve into lip color) but I kind of want to try it now!

    Also, loved your gift guide – and I’m planning on playing Love Actually in the background at Friendsgiving next week. 🙂

    I just picked up the Scarlet Empress lipstick last week and I’m full-blow obsessed with it. I love that it’s not too berry and really makes my eyes stand out!
