Purpleberry Kisses

Salut mes belles!!

Today was a lovely day up in NYC (pix coming) and to conclude it on a high note, I'm gonna blog a little :)) Since I don't have a particular topic in mind, I'll just show you my recent makeup purchases and a swatch of my latest favorite lipstick. Here's moi, wearing Berry Haute, a medium purple creme lipstick from Revlon. Let me know if you like it or if you think I look like I drank too much vino... :/

Read more for pix, details, descriptions, etc.

Here are some new Revlon lipstick additions to my collection: 
1. Berry Haute--creme (foreground); medium purple
2. Stormy Pink--matte; bright, cool-hued light pink
3. Wink for Pink--creme; warm pink with gold flecks
4. Soft Nude--creme; a classic nude and a Kim Kardashian favorite :p

For the sake of this post, I'll just focus on Berry Haute and show swatches of the other lipsticks in later posts. I've already blogged about Stormy Pink, so if you're interested in seeing some pix, click here

In my opinion, Revlon Berry Haute lipstick is pretty easy to wear and looks best on medium to tan skin, paired with barely there eye makeup. Surprisingly, I find this shade rather suitable for the daytime and would play it up with some gloss on top for the evening. I recently tried a gorgeous YSL lavender sheer gloss (#18 Golden Lavender) and can't wait to get my hands on that baby just to pair it with my Berry Haute for evening looks. I'll post an update as soon as I get it :))) For now, here's a purple lipped smooch... mmmmuah

So, Berry Haute or Berry NOT?

  1. Ain't no shame in drinking a little bit too much vino. I do it on the regular!

    This wouldn't look nice on me unfortunately, my toning is too fair and cool. However I agree with you, med to dark skin chicas like yourself can rock this beautifully.

    Verdict: Berry HAUTE!

    Bisous to you too!

  2. More like very hot. ;)
    Bad pun aside, Berry Haute looks very good on you! ;)
    I also have this lipstick and I don't give it much love but I shall rock it tomorrow. I lurrrrve Revlon lippies! Pretty inexpensive and great range of colors, not to mention pigmented as heck.

  3. I think it is a beautiful color! I agree, it probably works better with those who have medium to tan skin tones. On me it wouldn't look as good as it looks on you. :-)

    I think Revlon has such fantastic lipsticks...I am excited to see your post about Wink for Pink!!
