{ Sephora Collection lip stain in Blackberry Sorbet (#14) }
Fall beauty equals vampy... plain and simple. The sooner we all come to terms with that, the better off we'll be — starting with the lips. Sultry berry tones, rich burgundys and purples so deep they're practically black are nothing to shy away from, even if your complexion slightly resembles that of a ghost's (as mine permanently seems to). Just lightly bronze away the pasties if the stark contrast scares you, but consider this: if you can't embrace your inner Morticia Addams during autumn, then when the heck can you?
I picked up this lip stain from Sephora earlier this week, and the formula, coupled with the amazing colour itself, prompted an inner need for some good ol' fashioned show-and-tell — you're welcome, or if you're sick of people talking about Sephora's lip stains all over Youtube, I'm sorry (shade #1 has a bit of a cult following as it happens). I'll admit that my aforementioned pasty complexion sometimes makes it challenging to rock this shade, but I'm taking it one day at a time and not giving up on this little beauty... because bad skin tones happen to good lipstick. xx
