Now lets look at some berry lipped team mates.
While it is undeniable that Drew is killing it with that cranberry pout, it does look quite dry and not in a cool “bright-matte-lips” way but more, “this lippy’s getting crusty and making my lips feel like shrivelled prunes” way.
And here's Lauren Conrad, taking a modern twist on the trend. Her lips look anything but dull, in fact, they look like juicy plums mmm ...
I went to Good Vibes music festival a few weekends ago with a group of friends, and maybe it was the floppy felt hat I could hide behind that gave me the boost I needed to try it out, but either way I was happy with my cherry-soaked pout. It also seems very appropriate seeing as it’s now official autumn; the perfect transeasonal time for honing your winter-lust looks.
On my way to see Phoenix and Kelis!
When trying out a new makeup trend I often like to start out with an inexpensive version and work my way up to the high-end brands as my obsession grows – yeah I live on the EDGE. I’ve bought three dark hued lippys in the last week and a half. Yes ma'am I have a problem.
It started innocently enough with a stroll into my local Price Line where I purchased Face of Australia’s Lip Quench Moisturising Lipstick SPF 30+ in Ruby Delight ($9.45). Two days later I upgraded to Revlon’s ColourBurst in Plum ($23.95) then yesterday I succumbed to MAC’s Original Lippy in Hang-up ($35.00).To be honest there’s not a huge difference in "feel" between the three, although the pigment in MAC's was a bit richer and stayed put for longer. If you're smart, you’ll just buy one because chances are you’ll look back at a picture of yourself in ten years time and think, “Why the F did Sarah/Betty/Gertrude let me out of the house with stripper/goth lipstick smeared on my trap?” Just joshin’ you’ll be blaming me!
MAC's Hang-up, available at Myer RRP: 35 clams
So what's the verdict dolls? Are you tempted to give this red-wine-soaked lips thing a go? Any other looks your dying to whip out in time for winter?
