The Darker The Berry Lipstick, The Sweeter The Tube


By Tiffany Mercer

Fall brings out our inner dark child. From chocolate to lipstick, our mouth craves it all. Fall is a special time of the year for makeup and makeup artists everywhere because we get to bring out all the berry!

I’m a mama on a budget (what I like to call, ballin’ on a budget). I have high-end lipsticks that I love and I have some pretty amazing drugstore lipsticks that I love too. I’m here to share my go-to fall lipstick colors that will make you run around with a pumpkin spice latte in your hands and scream, “I love fall!

Let me start with the lower end, drugstore lipsticks so I don’t scare anyone away from buying this little magical tube. When it comes to drugstore brands, NYX and Maybelline are killing it with lipsticks that are just as good as higher end brands. Here are a couple of my favorite berry colors for fall.

Now, let’s go into higher end lipsticks for fall. I like to use lip liner as my lipstick most of the time. I love a matte lip and something that will last through my 10 meals a day. I also can appreciate a highly pigmented gloss. I have worked for MAC for years now. I like to try every brand that I can possibly get my little hands on, but when it comes to pigment and lasting power, I will always go back to my holy grail of lipstick from MAC. I actually wore this color for my fall wedding and didn’t have one regret, not one! This color also looks amazing on every skin tone. I’ve tried this color on about 3,000 people and it never looked bad. Some kind of magic is in the tube. Do yourself a favor and purchase this. You’re welcome.

When it comes to makeup there really are no rules but the berry rule for fall. It’s in the handbook of makeup, I swear. Have fun with it. Try a new look, get yourself a dark berry lipstick and go run the world! If you are scared to purchase a darker color, start out with a drugstore lipstick. That way, if you don’t like it, you didn’t break the bank. Also, look online at Maybelline, NYX and any other makeup company, because a lot of them will offer sales. I for sure can ball on a budget with online shopping! Happy Fall Lippie shopping my friends!
