Best Berry Lipsticks

July 17, 2018

Berry lipsticks look beautiful on an array of skin tones, whether you’re warmer-toned or cooler-toned, fair or deep in complexion.  I love pairing a berry lipstick with a soft, neutral eye look (purplish taupes, mauves, or soft browns) or faded pinks or dusty purples. Here are nine of the best berry lipsticks that we’ve tried and tested that you can check out today!

If you have drier lips, consider a more luminous, creamier formula, and I find that less coverage often is kinder and less prone to emphasizing texture.  For those who prefer longer wear, look for a liquid lipstick (as long as you don’t mind drying to non-drying in feel!), pair with a lip liner, or blot lightly after initial application.

Who should wear this berry:  Anyone who likes cooler, more magenta-leaning berry lipsticks with a natural finish.

Smashbox Jam On It Be Legendary Matte Lipstick, $21 (Review)

Who should wear this berry: Anyone who has been looking for a berry lipstick balanced between cooler and warmer undertones.
