Berry Lipsticks I'm Loving

Although I'm still longing for Spring and the fairer weather it brings, unfortunately it is for the most part still bitterly cold in Dublin so I'm making the most of red and berry toned lipsticks. Here's what I'm currently loving;

Clockwise from top left; Dior Sterling Red, Sleek Cherry, Revlon Cherries In The Snow, Seventeen Stay Pout Date Night and Revlon Black Cherry

First up and the priciest of the five is that strawberry-jam red from Dior, Sterling Red. If you're slightly afraid of reds this is a good jumping off point, it's not too in your face but still adds a lovely slick of colour. It's glossy and very pretty on. Full on love for this one.

Next up is a dark cherry red from Sleek. This is a more bargainous option and still packs a proper punch in the pigmentation stakes. 

This is an absolute beauty of a raspberry from Revlon, I wore it all over Christmas. It's bright but warm and super flattering. Love it.

Date Night from Seventeen Stay Pout* is a limited edition but is actually still available in this and another shade for only €5.69. This is surprisingly pigmented and at a really good price, if you want a bit of berry for less. I love this, it reminds me of a Bourjois lip crayon (Plum Russian) that I loved last year and also of a lighter wash of my favourite MAC lipstick, Rebel.

And lastly, my most recent favourite. I went into Boots a couple of weeks ago for vitamins and came out with this dark toned stunner from Revlon, Black Cherry. I saw it and couldn't leave without it. It's a perfect darker toned lipstick and looks surprisingly right on me. I generally don't wear it quite as goth as  it is in the photo but still enough for an impact.

And swatches..

What's your ultimate berry toned lippy? Any of these make your cut?

  1. loving that 17 shade! sucker for anything berry and matte, especially at this price!

  2. I'm loving these colours too. Darker the better! Will have to buy the Revlon one xx

  3. Ooh I like the Sleek one! My lips are so small though so I don't tend to wear very dark lipsticks. I have been looking for a nice berry shade though. I have a MUA one but it's matte (which is fine but it's super hard to apply)

  4. I would definitely be too much of a wuss for the Revlon one, it look's fab though! My favourite would be 107 from the Kate Collection for Rimmel.. It's a nice cross between both red and berry! And Sugar Plum Fairy from Wet N Wild... Although I'd tend to keep that for night's out because I think it's a bit much for work!! :D

  5. The Revlon and Dior lippies look heavenly!
