It’s an undeniable fact that there’s no better time to rock a berry lip than during fall, just another reason to add to our never-ending list of why we love this season. Paired with a chunky knit and bronzed eye, a berry lip takes you from summer-ready to feeling festive in one quick swipe and compliments the golden hues of fall perfectly.
A berry lip can sound daunting, especially if you’re new to the world of bold lipsticks. But don’t worry, there’s a berry lip for everyone, novice, and expert alike. Whether you’re after something sheer for a subtle pop of color, or you want to go full out fall with a bold, matte hue, we’ve got a rundown of all the best berry lips on the market.
The Matte Lip
Watch Charlotte Tilbury talk for five minutes and you’ll be interested, try her products and you’ll be obsessed. With so much of her range having cult classic status, it can be tricky to know where to start, but if you’re after a statement berry lip this season then look no further than the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Glastonberry.
This iconic matte lipstick is adored for its long-lasting yet comfortable formula and gorgeous muted purple hue. Enriched with a rich blend of oils, waxes, and orchid extracts, the formula keeps lips soothed and hydrated whilst enjoying ample pigmentation and a pure matte finish. You can even lightly pat this one on for a touch of color if you don’t want to go all out with a statement lip.
The Sheer Lip
Wearing a berry lip doesn’t have to be left to the bold and daring you can still enjoy the seasonal hue if you prefer sheer and lightweight formulations. The YSL Rouge Volupte Shines are perfect for the job and we particularly love the fall-ready shade 48 Smoking Plum. Created with 60% oils, these YSL classics offer intense hydration and nourishment with a high-shine finish and Smoking Plum is the perfect nod to the hottest trend for fall.
The Tinted Lip Balm
The changing seasons and plummeting temperatures can cause chaos for our skin and lips so why not combine your skincare and makeup in one with a tinted lip balm? The Fresh Sugar Berry Tinted Lip Treatment deeply nourishes and moisturizes lips while leaving a berry tint behind for a touch of color. All the Fresh Lip Treatments contain the all-important SPF15 too so you can protect your lips from harmful UV rays all year round.
The Long-Lasting Lip
Statement lips can seem like a lot of hassle and hard-work with regular top-ups required and extra precision necessary. However, NARS doesn’t believe that bold berry lips and high maintenance formulas have to go hand in hand and they have developed the stunning Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Damned to ensure long-lasting pigmentation while packing a punch.
These revolutionary lip crayons feel weightless and comfortable on the lips despite their matte formula and the shade Damned is a gorgeous cool-toned berry, ideal for fall.
