Hello lovlies, I haven't been on blog form at all this year but next year has some very exciting things coming on the blog and my blog game will be strong! One of my resolutions is to get my shi* together and be a hell of a lot more organised. I have really enjoyed bringing my 'Mummy Monday' posts on here but have missed the beauty posts, you know your a mum when you get more excited for baby/toddler things coming through the post than a beauty order! I haven't treated myself to new make up in a long time but I've been really realistic and thought do I need another lipstick/blusher? No.. I also want to save a lot more money in the new year with our mortgage going trough and extension, I am going to share everything what we do on here alongside my Youtube channel I can't wait, but back to the lipstick post....

Who doesn't love a berry toned lip? If you're scared, don't be! I was always slowly walking away form the dark lipsticks before hand, I thought no, don't do it, you will look stupid! You're the same shade as casper, you girl are not going to pull of the sexy vampire look going on. But here I am pulling of the sexy vampire look, kind of.

There are so many shades to choose from as you can see above I picked out quite a few different tones and finishes. For long lasting lipsticks obviously go for a matte but if you apply plenty of lipliner before hand any lipstick will do, here are some of my faves I've loved this year..

Topshop Beguiled - By far the most loved berry lip I've been wearing this year, I wore this a lot when I had darker hair but looks even better with my blonde hair so no matter your hair shade this colour will rock! I love it against my fair skin also but I think it would look gorgeous on a dark skinned face too. It's very creamy but goes on quite matte and lasts so long! I went out to watch the christmas lights even though I got absolutely soaked, I ate a curry and had a glass of wine and it stayed put through all that, winner. 10/10

Chanel 81 - The most expensive of the bunch but who can resist the gorgeous chanel sleek packaging? So so sleek and sassy and doesn't take any room up what so ever in your make up bag, its very glossy but lasts a good 2-3 hours, it's quite a pinky berry shade with a slight iridescent shine to it.  8/10

Clinique All heart - It took me a while to like this one to be honest, I always thought it was quite a granny shade but after breaking it in a bit I got to grips with it, I think it suits my skin tone a lot and the formula is gorgeous. Again it's quite pinky with a metallic like sheen to it lasts around 2-3 hours. 6/10

Rimmel Kate Moss 30 - Along side the Topshop lipstick this has been my go to lipstick through out autumn and winter other than my nudes! It is a matte finish but not drying at all lasts through drinking and eating and with the right lipliner could last you all night. I actually love the smell of the Rimmel lipsticks too, this is a deep fuchsia berry shade. 10/10

Revlon Super Lustrous Black Cherry -  One of the darkest shades of the bunch, a very deep dark purple, you have to be very brave to pull of the black cherry! I think this would suit any skin color and hair shade, such a gorgeous purple but make sure you apply this perfectly as it could look messy, great staying power with its matte finish. 7/10

Revlon Colourburst Red Velvet - Did anyone else think of Red Velvet cake straight away then? No, just me. This is so so similar to the Chanel lipstick above so if your after something similar for a hell of a lot cheaper I definitly recommend picking this one up first, glossy finish with an iridescent shimmer just a bit more of a red shade than the chanel pinky shade, feels nourishing on the lips and lasts 3-4 hours. 6/10

What are your favourite berry lip shades?
