Fall is here and that means that it’s time for me to retire all my summer poppy lip shades.  So I’m packing away the corals and pinks and opting for one of my favorite autumn  colours: berry. I know berry isn’t some revolutionary color concept but it was never my jam until recently. Ha. I always thought it would make my lips look smaller or make everything just feel dingy and dark. But f-ck me was I ever wrong because not only does it make a bold statement but the effect gives me an A plus pout. Now, I like a more diffused smudged appearance but if you wanna go HAM and really load it on, I totally co-sign that move as well. The shade I am really feeling the most these days is Kosas's Royal.


It’s really one  of the most wearable burgundy lip shades out there; in fact, it was formulated specifically to flatter a wide range of skin tones and hair colors. I gotta tell ya, this formula really packs a punch that delivers a high impact pigment payoff that I find has a lot of lasting power. And texture is an absolute dream – it  glides on super luxe and feels weightless on your lips and that’s all thanks to the bevy of botanical goodness in each tube. Things like Jojoba oil for moisture, mango seed butter for skin-soothing and rosehip seed oil to up the ante on tone and texture.
