It's really funny how the weather determines our makeup choices. I love wearing bold berry toned lipsticks during the colder weather. A bold berry lip, pale complexion and flushed cheeks just looks amazing and that look is just perfect for the winter whereas as summer is all about the bronze and glow. I am ramble, and before I go on and on as promised on my The Ultimate Guide To Wearing Berry Toned Lipstick post here are my favourite berry toned lipsticks.

The Every Day Berry Lipstick: Revlon Colorstay Stain in New York Scene
Lip stains are the way forward if you want to ease your way into wearing a more bold berry lipstick, especially if you are going for a more natural look. I love Revlon products, definitely one of my favourite drugstore brands specifically for their lip products. Also the glossy finish I think makes it more appropriate for the day time, right? I really like the consistency of this, it's more on the thick side but I really like the way that it applies, super smooth and evenly. The most important thing is that it lasts pretty well, cos no one has time to reapply their lipsticks throughout the day. And because it's a lip stain, it wears off really nicely as well.

The Long Lasting Berry Lipstick: Sleek Lipstick True Colour in Vamp
Everyone knows if you want your bold lipstick to last, then it's best to opt for a matte lipstick. This Sleek matte lipstick in Vamp is ridiculously long lasting. The colour is a very dark toned berry lipstick, not one if you are not so confident pulling off a bold lipstick and you definitely need to prep the lips for this lipstick (check out my posts on that here). The pigmentation and lasting power is insane but the only downside is that it so drying, I know it's matte but it's not the most comfortable lipstick (but it does look really really good and it's super affordable).

The Perfect Reddish Berry: Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella 
I can't tell you how beautiful this colour is, it's a pretty subdued cool toned red, I know it's more of a red red lipstick than a berry but it's darker than your average red. The consistency of the Nars Velvet lip pencil, is ever so slightly waxy which gives it that slip which makes for a smoother application and gives that you velvety feel on the lips. The finish is a matte one, so you know that it will pretty decently throughout the day and I haven't had any problems and lipsticks just seem to disappear from my lips. I love the fact that it's in a pencil shape, just makes the application so much easy and you know when you are feeling bold lip but don't want the hassle. This Nars lip pencil is just perfect for those situations. Plus it's a really comfortable lipstick to wear.

The Perfect Berry Lipstick: Collection Lasting Colour Lip in Plum Sensation 
This is one of the more recent addition to my collection, but boy have I been raving about it. I have never felt more comfortable wearing a bold berry lip, this colour is one of those that just suits everyone and look really really good. I love it so much, and it's only £2.99 yes. I would definitely recommend checking it out, I know you definitely buy it. It's not matte as the rest of the lipsticks, I have spoken about. The finish is a semi matte satin finish, it feels super comfortable on the lipsticks. I find that it lasts really and the pigmentation is great. It's such gorgeous colour, I gonna be wearing it loads this winter.

Let me know what your favourite berry toned, I could always do with some in collection or maybe not.
