The nights are longer, darker and colder. The onesies are out and so are my slippers, I've finally put away my flip flops and dark colours are in. To me, dark lips means that you don't have to dress up as much, the lips do it all for you. You don't have to make as much effort with your eye makeup either- winning. I've found the perfect drugstore wine coloured lip combination.
Barry M lip Liner in Wine 7
I am really getting into lip liners at the moment. They make my tiny lips look fuller and larger. I wanted a red wine coloured lip, a little darker then a red lip. I spotted the Barry M liners and after I swatched them, I was sold. It glides on smoothly and not at all harshly which was honestly not what I was expecting, considering the £2.99 price tag. I would recommend this to anyone as it really is so easy to use and if you make a mistake, a normal makeup wipe will do the trick. It's almost like a wine-stain coloured crayon. I didn't need to reapply it as the staying power lasted all night. The dark, dramatic colour was right up my street and I can't wait to get my hands on some other shades.
Maybelline Colour Sensational Matte in Divine Wine 975
I've never tried the matte version of the colour sensationals but I do have about 3 other ones, so my expectations were high. The creamy consistency is what you see first. I was a little confused as it was supposed to be matte but after a few minutes it did turn into a matte look, so I didn't mind. The creamyness of it didn't completely disappear, that is this products only downfall. It's a deep burgundy colour with reddish/ brown undertones and I love it. It's very soft and velvety and the staying power lasts around 3 hours (if you're eating and drinking as I usually am). For £6.99, you can't go wrong and both these products together is a dream.

So if you're looking for darker lips to wear this Christmas, I would really recommend this combination, get it while Boots are doing 3-4-2!
