The Fall Berry

While I admit, I am jumping the gun a little on this post as it's still pretty warm where I'm at, I just can't resist the call to talk about my favorite shade of lip/nail color ever: berry (most specifically, the Fall Berry). Every year, around this time, girls start incorporating darker colors into their wardrobe and makeup routines, yet berry always manages to sneak itself in as that little pop of color we all need from time to time, especially when the weather gets cold and dreary.

My favorite thing about the Fall Berry, a very subtle berry, is that it is universally flattering.  Bring me a girl who doesn't look good in a berry lip and I will be convinced the world is ending.  It just works...on everyone.  Of course, you do have to consider red and blue undertones, blah blah blah, but everyone looks good in some form of the Fall Berry.

These four products embody my idea of the Fall Berry.  Have a look!

Left to Right: Revlon Seductive, Sephora Raspberry Ink, Fresh Sugar Plum and Revlon Berry Allure

Top to Bottom: Sephora Raspberry Ink, Fresh Sugar Plum and Revlon Berry Allure

This nail polish is Fall Berry's deep older sister.  Seductive is to berry what oxblood is to red and it is absolutely perfect for the fall.  Though, if I could wear this gorgeous polish year round, I totally would.

I actually picked this lip stain up on a whim at the Sephora checkout counter and it may be one of my favorite things I've ever purchased there.  It's this highly pigmented stain that lasts fo-re-ver.  Layer a gloss over this bad boy and you will have the perfect berry pout.

I've actually posted about this balmy lip treatment before and I love it as much for the fall as I did for the summer.  Of course, it is the sheerest of the bunch, but perfect for livening up your lips nonetheless.

Does anyone remember when I discussed the best lipgloss ever a while back?  Well these two must be related, because Berry Allure is like the berry version of The Red- Shiny that looks good on literally everyone.  Plus, this new Revlon formula is pretty amazing.  It's not to sticky, but it is also tenacious enough to last through a few hours at a college football tailgate.

So, that is my Fall Berry Roundup.  What do you all think?  Do you have any Fall Berries you just can't live without?
