My favorite lipsticks, tinted balms and liners all happen to come from the berry family. The shades that work best for my complexion and really make my eyes pop are darker and bolder. I shy away from light colors because instead of enhancing my features, they tend to make me look a little washed out. I find myself wearing these pretty hues almost all year round but they certainly work best with fall fashion.
So it’s the perfect time to stock up on all of my favorites…
Sephora Collection, Rouge Cream Lipstick in Truth or Dare $12.50
A hydrating lipstick that creates full lips with intense color. Made with a new hydrating formula that provides improved coverage and is rife with pigment. The creamy texture softly glazes your lips, imparting just the right amount of color and sheen. This is the color featured in the photos above. It’s the perfect mix of berry, plum and pink. And depending on what liner you pair it with, it can be made brighter or bolder to create your desired look.
