Autumnal Berry Lip

This was nearly titled...yet another berry lipstick post.
I know there are lots flying about at the moment but I am loving them for Autumn. 
Be assured when payday comes about I will be whole heatedly be found in Boots stocking up my berry lipstick collection.

Now this is a colour I picked up a few weeks ago.
I love its colour, the almost-lipgloss-like finish and the packaging.
For someone who openly admits to having lipstick issues I really don't spend too much of my money on high street lipsticks. 
If its bold and bright Ill be heading towards the MAC counter in a shot. 
In a way I am kicking myself a little at my somewhat lipstick-related narrow minded thinking.

This calibre falls into the "wearable" category of berry lipsticks.
It hints at statement without being too over bearing and shys away from that berry lip your Nana would faithfully wear regardless of season or occasion.

I am building the courage to rock this shade in the office- only through lack of enthusiasm of the whole reapplication-in-the-office-thing more than anything else.
If you wish to see what it looks like on have a look at my Estee Lauder foundations review- I'm wearing it there

I think when swatched it comes across much more pink toned which I like.

Amethyst Shimmer is available at Boots
If you are into a matt finish Amethyst Shimmer is also available within Rimmels Lasting finish range

Safe to say I will be swinging by the moisture renew Rimmel counter very soon.

What is your favourite berry lipstick shade?


  1. So happy I saw this post, totally forgot I have this lipstick in my collection. Great shade for Fall/Winter:)

  3. Ooh this is a gorgeous colour for a/w!

  4. Oh I Love the packaging so much ! I have at least 5 of them

  5. Love the colour BUT i've always been a bit of a nude lips person... a little scared at the prospect of trying it out.

  6. Oh I love that colour, need something like this but I don't think it suits me

  7. Very pretty berry shade! It definitely looks quite wearable as well for something a bit darker and plummy. Rimmel make some terrific lipsticks, I really like Nude Delight from this Moisture Renew range :)
