5 Beautiful Berry Lipsticks

Reader Brittany requested a five ways post for berry lips, so here are five of my picks for berry lipsticks (and I’ll do glosses next!) :) My trick for wearing darker shades like this is to keep eyes soft and neutral–think your-lid-but-better kind of colors with a medium-dark brown, taupe, or plum in the crease.

What’s YOUR favorite berry-hued lipstick?

    MAC Rebel is one of my favorite! I wear it with a neutral eye so it can be the star of the show! Its gorgeous :)

  4. Gosh, I instantly fell in love with the first color, scrolled and realized I already have it. Rebel. LOL

    I was just watched a dark lip look tutorial yesterday! ^^
    Now I want to try it. I haven’t tried any dark or berry lipsticks before.

    The Guerlain Gigolo Rouge G lipstick looks so good, but pricey. >.<

    Rebel is sooooo crazy bright on me! I wish it looked on me like it does in your photos!

  14. Josiane

    Ohhh Rebel is like the color I was looging for! I just bought Violetta and Show orchid because of you and they are sooooooooo gorgeous! I love them

    of course I love the most expensive ones! Actually if I had to pick my top 3 it would go: MAC Rebel, Guerlain, Thierry Mugler Dream! I also do love the NYX one but I feel like it would accentuate my overly dry lips..

    before i even saw the picture, i thought “rebel”. its the only berry i absolutely love. its got the impact that a red lipstick has, without being actually RED. That Guerlain shade is beautiful as well. MAC used to make a lip laquer that was very thick and berry hued as well, but i cant recall what it was called. i think it was in 07. syrup is almost berry to me, but those are the only shades i have!

  17. On you, the Guerlain is a KNOCKOUT! You have awesome lips *blush*

    And….Thierry Mugler makes makeup too? I am so screwed. I’ve been an Angel fan forever (thanks to my sister).

    I do like the MAC colors as well….and I just ordered my first NYX matte lipstick from Hautelook yesterday, excited!!

    Thanks for the review (and lemmings lol)

  18. Gorgeous picks! I love berry shades and this is really helpful!

  19. lexi

    probably my fave is MAC Deep Attraction

  20. I’m a huge fan of berry and plum shades as a rule. My favourite, although it’s a little dark compared to a lot of berry shades, is Mac’s “Desire”. I’ve also fallen for Gigolo, which is an amazing colour.

    When I first saw the first pic I said “gosh thats such a pretty color, I hope she posted the name of it” Turns out its MAC Rebel which I already have. I have to wear this more often!

    I love MAC Rebel but it stains my lips. :(
