Must Have | Purple Berry Lipsticks

Purple lipstick,what?

Far be it for me to presume that many of you will even want to read this post. But as you all know, I love sharing with you what I think you should have in your make up stash. And since the rainy days is upon us and Fall is right around the corner, let me share with you one lipstick shade that you should have include in your kits.

And that's the plum lipsticks. I see this shade as the red lipstick of the season. Since Summer of last year (2012) purple lipsticks had a good exposure in many beauty blogs, fashion runways and celebrities. From the true shades of purple, pastel ones to the berry-based ones, there's something for all of you.

Here are some that I found in my stash that are ALL budget friendly! Nothing more than Php500!

Purple or berry lip shades compliment many skin colors, ours included. Was only too glad that I was experimental enough to try these shades coz I had not, I would have missed out on how gorgeous they can be against my golden skin tone. :)

Same as your red lisptick, there is a purple/berry one right for you. The simple trick in wearing an unusual lip color such as this is to stick to neutral shades around the eyes. Keep it defined with a gel liner or eye pencil. Pink-base blush or a mauvey one is a great choice to use as well.

Avon Totally Kissable Lipstick in Berry Smooth
This got has to be the prettiest plum shade I own. My favorite, of course. It's a sort of training wheels for those who want to sport a more adventurous look since the shade it still very much purple but with a pink or pink it it, too.

Maybelline Color Sensational The Jewels Lipstick in Berry Brilliant
Maybelline Color Sensational is also a wearable plum shade for daily use.

LA Colors Lipstick in CP231
Although deep in red tone, LA Colors lipstick in CP231 also looks good on the lips. Given how affordable the brand is, don't expect too much with the consistency.

Wet n Wild Perfect Pair in 123
Wet n Wild Perfect Pair in 123 on the hand, albeit a bit too maroon than plum.

Avon Rich Rose Collection in Jubilee Rose
Feeling gothic? Then, you'll love Jubilee Rose. Not something I'll wear on a daily but this can come in handy in a few occasions like Halloween or evening parties.

A definite must have this season, try to look for a berry shade of lip color that compliments you. It doesn't have to be an all out purple and see where the shade will take you.

Would you be daring enough to switch from pinks, corals and red to the purple lip colors? What's your bet in these collection?
