Current Favourite Berry Lipsticks

Swatches (From Top) – Maybelline Pink Punch//Maybelline Keep It Classy//Collection Perfect Plum

Every year, Fall brings with it the need to adorn our lips with berry-toned lipsticks, which is one of my favourite things about the season. When I’m not wearing nude lipsticks, I’ll usually opt for a berry shade, It’s definitely one of my preferred colours to wear. These are the shades I’ve been loving lately.

The Pink One – Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick in Pink Punch – Pink Punch is a fiery pink shade, but it’s quite dark and not too girly which is why I like it. I don’t usually wear pinks, but this hue edges more towards a purple shade making it more appealing to me. The cool blue undertones of this vibrant magenta colour, make it perfect for a bold, Winter lip.

The Red One – Maybelline Colour Drama Lip Crayon in Keep It Classy – The Keep It Classy crayon is a wine coloured, raspberry shade, with red undertones. On days that I want my lips to be the focus of the look, this is the colour I wear. I also like to wear this colour as an alternative to red lipstick. The intense colour glides over the lips so smoothly and looks velvety after application.

The Purple One – Collection Work The Colour Lip Butter in Perfect Plum – Purple shaded lipsticks really suit me, so when I found this in Boots a few weeks ago I fell in love with it. I have been wearing this colour non-stop recently. It’s not so dark that its hard to pull off, but it’s not too light either. Aptly named, the shade is certainly the perfect plum.

Collection Work The Colour Lip Butter Review

Lip Butter 1

Lip Butter 2

Other than Collection’s famous concealer, I haven’t heard much about their products or been drawn to anything in particular. As I love the concealer so much, it’s a permanent item in my makeup routine, I decided that it was time to take a look at some of their other products. When browsing the Collection stand, I came across these lip butters and they really stood out to me. I picked up two in the shades Vintage Rose and Perfect Plum.

The Collection Lip Butters claim to give you the perfect pout. With a soft and creamy texture the product should leave your lips feeling moisturised and looking dewy all day. They are quick and easy to apply and can give both a sheer or more intense, bold look to the lips.

Since using these lip crayons for the first time, I have been very impressed with the quality of them. The colours I have are very pretty on the lips. Vintage Rose is a great everyday soft pink shade, and gives a lovely sheen to the lips. Perfect Plum is my favourite of the two. The statement berry colour is perfect for Fall and will probably be on my lips a lot this Winter. The formula of these lip butters is gorgeous. The product glides onto the lips so smoothly and feels very hydrating, almost like a lip balm. The only downfall for me, is that they don’t last as long as other lip crayons, but I guess that’s to be expected with all moisturising lip products. You have to reapply every hour or so, especially after eating or drinking. It wears beautifully and leaves a lovely light stain on the lips. Collection have also recently brought out a matte version of the lip butters, which I cannot wait to try. Overall I’d say this product is definitely worth a try, but I wish they’d come out with more colours. Four just isn’t enough!

The Collection Lip Butters are available from Boots for £2.99 each, such a bargain for the quality of them. Have you tried the Collection Work The Colour Lip Butters? Please leave comments below.
