My Perfect Red-Berry Lip for A/W




Reds, berries, plums and vampy lips are always on trend whenever we reach Autumn and Winter. I've always envied girls who can pull off a bright red lip, as I find it very glamorous. I don't know if it's because of my skin tone, but I find most reds a bit too OTT on me. However, I finally found the perfect red/berry lipstick.

Mac Hot Tahiti is a beautiful "soft reddish coral", as described by Mac. I'd personally describe it more as a reddish / berry toned lipstick. It's got a glaze finish, so it's fairly sheer, but still with a great colour pay off. 
The formula is very soft, smooth and glossy. It goes on creamy and feels very moisturising on the lips. It's not as long lasting as other finishes like satin or matte, for example, but like any other reddish lip, it leaves a subtle stain on the lips, which means there's no need to reapply it that often.

I think Hot Tahiti will suit the majority of skin tones and it's a great lipstick to go for, especially if you are, like me, a bit scared of full on reds. 

Have you tried this shade? What is your favourite red for A/W? X

  1. I've never tried this, but I'm quite pale so I'm not sure the sheer shade would suit me, I think it might be a go hard or go home situation! I like rebel for winter, but it's erring on the purpley side of berry

  5. Love shades like this, as it's still glamorous, as you say, but more wearable, especially for daytime. I love all reds - berries, brights, darks - you name it! x

  21. Oooh I do love a lipstick which is slightly on the darker side. I've never owned a MAC lipstick before (shameful for a blogger). Maybe this'll be my first?
