The Perfect 'Berry' For Any Occasion

It's Winter, well at least it is here in Scotland, in fact maybe it's still Autumn I'm really not sure. However whichever season it is, winter or autumn, one thing is the same and that is getting out the berry lip colours. Today I bring you a post that covers my 'Berry Toned' picks which covers every finish and budget both of which should be taken into consideration when choosing the perfect 'Berry' for you.

You can see how well loved these are from the packaging
 From left to right we have: Revlon Lip Butter in the shade 'Macaroon' which is a fairly hydrating lip colour and has very good colour pay off. It its quite a light pink berry shade which I feel is very easy and comfortable to wear. Next is Collection Lipstick in the shade 'Revenge' which I have just discovered was limited edition sorry guys however this is a very dark toned colour and is very glossy meaning it can be a bit treacherous to wear. We then have Maybelline Super Stay 10h Tint gloss in the shade 'Lasting Pink' I believe and is the one I would recommend to those who are just starting out in wearing this bold lip trend as it is slightly more sheer than the rest and is not as much of a commitment as the other lipsticks. Finally we have the Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in the shade '107' which is the classic deep berry and wears extremely well as it is a matte colour plus it is so pigmented.

Even though they are all classed as berry they are all so different
 Pricing from left to right: The Revlon Lip Butters come in at around £7.99 each but are often part of a promotion in boots and superdrug. Although discontinued the Collection lipstick was around £2.99 when I purchased it last year and this brand does have other berry shades similar for the same price point. The Kate Moss Rimmel lipstick is £5.49 and a personal favourite when it comes for quality and value for money. And although not pictured I believe the Maybelline Tint Gloss was around £6.99 when I purchased it (I can't seem to find a price on the boots website but have seen these recently in shops).

Sorry it is slightly out of focus trying to work a DSLR one handed can be tricky
Here you can see all the different tones and shades each lip product gives off plus the glossiness of the finish. All are good but in the sense of which I would pick for: Value, Price and longevity of wear my personal favourite would have to be '107' Kate Moss Lipstick by Rimmel.
What's your favourite berry lipstick for the colder months?
