Autumn Berries

Since it's now coming in to Autumn I decided it was time to darken my nails and lipstick. Berry/Wine colours are really in this season so I wanted to show you my current favourite berry lipstick and nail polish.

  • MAC Rebel Lipstick - This is one of the lipsticks I got for my birthday and it had been on my wish list for ages. The MAC website describes the colour as a "vivid pinkish-purple" which I would say is about right. Rebel is a satin finish which means it's semi-matte, it gives intense colour but it still conditions the lips unlike the matte finish which is quite drying on the lips. It looks really great my new H&M coat! I really want to try MAC Hang Up next which is a dark red berry colour that will also look great in the Autumn and Winter. Rebel costs £14 and can be purchased here.

  • Maybelline Forever Strong Nail Polish: Midnight Red - I actually picked this nail polish up when I was in Asda the other day as I've been looking for one this colour for a while. Its a really deep redish-purple colour that looks lovely with my Rebel lipstick. I've wanted to try one of the Maybelline forever strong nail polish's for a while as I've heard good things about them. The polish is enriched with iron and calcium which helps keep your nails strong and wont damage them. It states that it lasts up to 7 days, so i'll let you know how long mine lasts (probably not that long). The colour was really strong and I only needed to apply two coats, so overall I'm really happy with this polish and would definitely buy it in other colours. It said it cost £4 in Asda but when I got to the till it was only £3 - bargain!!
What's your favourite lipstick/nail polish for Autumn?
