Bourjois Rouge Edition in 14*

GOSH Lipstick in Burgundy*

I'm slowly but surely getting more and more into dark berry lips. I know this is one of those trends that comes around evey year. But I've always shied away it, favouring peachy pinks and nudes. As it's such a bold colour. I don't think dark or berry lips are something I'd wear all year round I definitely think drugstore lipsticks are the best way to go when it comes to bold lips. Especially for nervous beginners like me. You can experiment with tones and shades which might suit you without breaking the bank.

First up I picked Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in 107. This lipstick is a matte berry red tone which looks really pretty on. I love the formulation (soft matte) and how it looks on me. It's got a slight purple edge to it which is really flattering on my skin tone. This one is my personal favourite from the bunch, plus I can see myself rocking it a lot more this winter. Bourjois Rouge Edition in 14 is the glossiest in formulation, It has a soft slippy sort of texture which isn't uncomfortable. Colour wise this shade is more of a bluey punchy plum. Then I also tried GOSH Lipstick in Burgundy. This one is very similar in colour to the Rimmel 107, the formula is a bit more glossy but not as glossy as the Bourjois one. It's plum berry shade and has a brownish tone to it.

All of these lipsticks leave a slight stain behind on the lips and wear for an average amount of time. I'd highly recommend using a lip brush to apply them with because they can get messy and are hard to correct if you go wrong. None of them bled on me, but you can always line the lips with a similar coloured lip liner or a clear one.

What are your favourite drugstore berry lipsticks?


  1. Iv got Kate Moss 107 and i love it too, im a little paler than you but it still looks good on my skin tone too :) Loving your top in this post too! Gotta love a good Collar :)!


  2. I love the Kate Moss ones they are all beautiful, those colours really suit you. My other favourite drug store lippy is the No7 moisture drench in Mulberry, feels like the YSL one!

  5. i'm a huge fan of dark lips - all year round really, but mainly stick to deep, dark reds, never really venturing into the plummy/berry shades. however, now that it's getting colder, and these colours are becoming more prominent in the beauty world, i may have to venture into these sorts of shades. i really like the bourjois and gosh colours as they seem vampy but still easy to wear. i think the rimmel one is just a bit too purple for me but i'll still probably end up wanting to give it a go! such gorgeous lipsticks and i can't wait to get my
    hands on some! :) X

  6. These are gorgeous! And look great on you :) x

  7. This colour looks amazing on you! Xx

  8. Topshop 'Beguiled' is another more darker berry colour (: i absolutely love it xx

  9. Lovely colours! I adore the dark berry/burgandy colours on my lips during this season. My favourite is the Kate 107 because it is quite matte but not drying. I don't think i can rock a intense glossy lip yet~

    Thank you for sharing~ I hope you have a lovely day!
