I've been loving berry colors this fall and I've been wearing shades darker than I ever thought I could pull off. So here are my current favorites:
Lorac- Dominatrix ($16): This is the darkest when applied and very buildable. I love the color of this one but the formula is definitely not worth the price. It's very dry on the lips and can sometimes be hard to get an even color. It does last a good while though, I would say about 3 or 4 hours.
NYX Matte Lipstick ($5)- This is the first NYX lipstick I've tried and I love it. It goes on smooth and feels silky on the lips. It also lasts a while, about 4 hours at full intensity but it fades to a stain like look after that. I would say though this is a slightly bluer tone, this is a close Dupe for the Lorac lipstick and a much better value.
Hikari- Cabernet ($13): This was in my September Ipsy and I have been loving it. It is a darker pink, not really a berry but it's still great for fall. The formula is creamy and lasts about 3 hours. I will definitely consider buying more Hikari products. My only complaint is the shape of the tip is a little wide for my lips and I have pretty big lips, but that doesn't change loving this.
Rimmel Long Lasting Lipstick- Bordeaux ($5.50): This is another almost dupe for the Lorac Lipstick. It is closer in color but not as buildable. It also has a shinier finish. Like the NYX it is more moisturizing. I would say that it lasts in the 3 to 4 hour range. this is the color I wore in my Autumn Look Book and Makeup Tutorial posts.
Revlon Balm Stain- Crush($7-$10): Well if you have been reading then you know my journey with the Balm Stains, if not let's just say it wasn't immediately love but I'm glad I stuck with them because they are some of my favorite products now. Creamy with a slightly shiny finish and they last 3 or 4 hours but will leave a stain on the lips.
Rimmel Show Off- Galaxy ($5.50): This is more of a liquid lipstick. It is not super opaque but has good color payoff. It feel cream on the lips and leaves a stain. This lasts between 2 and 4 hrs. I really love this color because it's kind of a natural berry with my natural lips.
