Throwing Up Berries


When the weather starts to become very gloomy and cold, I always pull out my boldest plum colours to perk me up. As it's my senior year, I spend quite a few days testing my lipsticks working from home. Most of the time I just walk around the house, barefaced, with a bold lip. Once my dearest Mum, who's more a red-lipstick person, chuckled when I wore a vampy-berry lip and said that I looked like I threw up berries. And well… that's how came up with this post: a selection of my favourite lip products that make it look like you 'threw up berries'. In a sophisticated way of course...



Berries come in different colours and so do lipsticks. My favourite raspberry shades are Lancôme Rouge in Love in 377N and Make-Up Studio Lipgloss in Pink Desire. When going to the more purple-toned, blackberry shades, MAC Plumful is my absolute favourite and Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate in 107 is the lippy for dark, vampy cherry look (yes, cherries are berries too). For a less dramatic look, NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Never Say Never (not the Bieber song) is your gal. Make sure to scrub prior-application as it's a matte finish and can cling to dry patches. If opaque lip products aren't your thing, I've got you covered too. Clinique Super Balm Moisturising Gloss in 09 Currant is a gorgeous sheer black currant gloss for a hint of colour. If you want that innocent 'I just ate a huckleberry tart, so what' look, Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss in Plumjam is your tune. Super moisturising and stains the lips beautifully. Berry lips? Sorted.

What makes you look like you 'threw up berries'?

    1. Couldn't agree more. Love to wear Plumful on a daily basis to Uni or to run an errand. Compared to the other lipsticks, it's more 'natural' in a way. Both colours are so similar, the only difference is that MAC is easier to wear and NARS is a gorgeous matte.

  9. I love berries for the berries shade for the autumn season. The MAC and NARS shades are very versatile :)

  10. I love NARS's Never Say Never! But it's not as dark as I would like... That Rimmel 107 is so ubiquitous I'm surprised I've held out this long. I think it's because I really want a plummy, dark berry color and I can't tell from online swatches if the 107 has brown undertones to it instead of plum? HELP haha. Thanks for the berry comparisons :)

    1. NSN is gorgeous! It's more fushia than a dark plum though. I've done a review in the very past (I think it's one of my first posts) on it, if you're interested to read more about it: http://www.9outoften.com/2012/06/review-nars-velvet-matte-lip-pencil.html.

      From what I can sense is that Rimmel 107 would be perfect for you. It's really dark and plummy and definitely doesn't have brown undertones. It'd be best if you'd swatch it yourself so you can see it better, my swatches are all just one layer. It'd be most comparable to MAC Rebel. Hope that helps x
