beauty + berry lips

Happy Saturday! I'm heading to Sephora today to restock a few items (also pick up a few sheet masks), so I thought I'd check out their selection of berry lipsticks. I have the perfect red liquid lipstick (thanks Kylie Jenner), so next on my to-find list is a perfect dark berry lip.

I was inspired by this makeup tutorial by Lisa Eldridge of Rosie Huntington Whitely getting ready for a birthday dinner. She has the perfect grown out lob (#goals), glowing skin, and is wearing a majestic berry lipstick. I'm obsessed. Her lipstick was from her makeup line at Marks & Spencer, and while I'm sure it's great, I'm really picky about my makeup shades and really prefer to choose them in person.

Let's jump into it.

I would rather the lipstick be darker than rosy and bright. It also can't be too purple. I made my own lipstick shade with my Urban Decay Blackmail Vice Lipstick Palette, and it was basically a dark purple. It was fine for the occasion (literally just dinner with my parents), but I'd really like to find what I'm looking for.

The berry lipsticks I'm most looking forward to trying are Anastasia Beverly Hill's Liquid Lipstick in Vamp, Tarte's Tarteist Matte Lip Paint in Acid Wash, and Urban Decay's Vice Lipstick in Blackmail.

You can't have a good lipstick without a good lip liner. It makes your lipstick last longer, and it's honestly just fun to do the whole shebang. Hopefully I'll find one that is a good match for my future berry lipstick!

I can't really vouch for any of these colors, I'm gonna be honest, but based on my Instagram, Pinterest and Google research, these are some of the best berry lipstick and lip liner options out there. If y'all know of any others, please let me know!
