I found two perfect berry lipsticks for fall that don’t make me look OLD haha. Berry shades are getting harder and harder for me to wear. They can be quite aging believe it or not. And the last thing I want to do is make my lips look smaller, which is really easy to do lately. #thanksmenopause
Burberry Lip Velvet No.425 Damson ($38)
Burberry Lip Velvets rank right up there in my fave matte lipstick list. They are so comfy! They go on creamy, and dry to a soft-matte finish on the lips that’s not drying at all. The formula is pretty close to perfect in my eyes. Every shade I have(I think this is my third) is awesome and pigmented, lasts forever, and fades beautifully. Expensive, yes. But oh so worth it!
Burberry Lip Velvet No.425 Damson is a perfect plummy berry that’s easily my favourite fall lipstick this year!
Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick Girl Gang ($28)
I got Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick Girl Gang after I saw it on my friend Dani on Instagram. She looked amazing and so gorgeous! And so, I wanted to join the Girl Gang too!
I think it looks better on Dani than on me(plus I mean her lips are EPIC), but I still LOVE it. It’s darker than Burberry Damson, but not too dark so that it ages me. Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipsticks are a great formula-not too drying compared to other liquid lipsticks. But to say they aren’t drying at all is a stretch. Let’s get real-most matte liquid lipsticks are. I find if I prep my lips with a good lip balm before application, I’m good to go for hours.
Smashbox Always On Mattes last forever and you need a good makeup remover to take them off. This shade Girl Gang is a bit fussier to apply compared to Babe Alert, which is a lighter one that I have. It takes a bit of time to get opaque coverage, but it’s so worth it as you can see. And to be honest, when it’s not completely opaque, it still looks kind of cool-a kind of effortless ombre lip. I like it a lot!
