Ginta Lapina at Dolce & Gabbana F/W 2010
I may actually love lipstick more than nail polish. Too bad I’m such a slob and always snacking or sipping on coffee. I can’t really keep lipstick on my lips for long periods of time no matter how expensive the lipstick is. I still try, especially with brights. I love a good berry and my $52 (no kidding!) Tom Ford in Moroccan Rouge in particular. It’s so perfect for winter and gives the face some much needed colour.

Well, you don’t have to be crazy like me to get a perfect berry shade. There are certainly cheaper but just as striking alternatives like Chanel’s “Gabrielle” (named after young Miss Coco herself), the stunning Paul Dorf “Holiday” (so aptly named for this season) and a goodie-but-cheapie Revlon “Raspberry.”

Perfect for that kiss under the mistletoe!

Do you have a favourite berry shade?
