Every girl seems to have the same obsession with berry/ purple/ plum in Autumn and Winter and it has been no different for me over the last few months. So.. here is my pick of the bunch to help you follow the trend.


This is a well known one. I'd describe Rebel as a deep purple/ fuchsia which is definitely lighter on the lips than in the tube and therefore makes it a slightly more wearable and feminine shade than other berry toned lipsticks. The only problem is it can dry my lips out so make sure you moisturise them well before hand.
Price= £15.50
Topshop Lipstick- Beguiled
This is another one that is not as dark on the lips than it is in the tube, however it can definitely be built up. It's a great balance between a red and a berry, and I really think it would suit so many skin tones.
Price = £8.00

Yves Rocher Moisturising Cream Lipstick- 106 Mauve
This is a more 'brownie' shade with plum running through it, which in the tube looks kind of dull and uninteresting, yet on the lips it is gorgeous! I feel its a slightly more 'vampy' take on the whole berry/plum lips if that is more your thaang.
Price = £15.00

Nails Inc Nail Polish- Kensington High Street
If you have read my blog for a while you'll know that I rave about Nails Inc. The shade; a deep wine, and formula are both perfect and I know you can now get this in the gel effect formula for an even glossier, high shine finish.
Price of Gel Effect formula= £15.00

Barry M Nail Paint- 273 Raspberry 
This is quite similar to the Nails Inc Polish with the only differences being that it is slightly lighter and has got a touch more pink to it, hence the name 'Raspberry'. I think I prefer the formula of the Kensington High Street more however at a fraction of the price, this is a great budget friendly option.
Price= £2.99
