Autumn's Oxblood Lip


One of the biggest trend this Autumn is the oxblood/burgundy/crushed berry lip. This colour comes around every year and although it may look scary it's an easy shade to wear if you can find the right shade for your skin.

I have two favourite lip products for a berry lip. Firstly Bourjois Sweet Kisses lipstick in 78 Rouge Intemporel. This is a really deep raspberry lipstick with slight purple tones and it's highly pigmented. For the daytime this makes a great stain when dabbed onto lips. I love the Revlon Kissable Balm Stains and the colour 005 Crush is a beautiful easy to wear crushed berry colour. It's more moisturising and sheer than the Bourjois lipstick, so it's easy to swipe on for a low maintenance lip.

I think that these two make  a perfect pair. This morning I applied the Balm Stain and let it sink in before dabbing on the Bourjois Lipstick, blotting and dabbing again, then applied the Balm Stain on top to keep my lips bright all day.
