Trend: Burgundy Lips (with Revlon) - Giveaway

This month's look made me so excited for fall.



I usually shy away from dark vampy lip colour but the Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick in Black Cherry was so beautiful and easy to use, I will be certainly rocking it this fall. 



Like with all dramatic lip colours, I prefer dabbing it in and blending the colour into the lips with my fingers for a more "lived in" stained look. You can always use a lipliner and lip brush for a more intense look, but I prefer the low-key stained look since it matches my personal style better.
The Super Lustrous lipstick line by Revlon is pigmented yet feels very lightweight on the lips. Black Cherry leaves a beautiful stain and can be built up to a more intense burgundy when applied straight from the tube. 

GIVEAWAY
I will be giving away 10 of these lipsticks in this post, so make sure you comment below with your e-mail address if you'd like to be entered. Winners will be chosen at random in 2 weeks :)

Finishing up the look:
To keep the focus on the lips, on my upper and lower lash lines I smudged just a little bit of the dark purple shade of my Revlon Colorstay Smoky Shadow Stick in the shade Flare.


The mascara I used is the new Revlon Colorstay Overtime mascara, which reminds me of Lancome Definicils. It's a lengthening mascara that separates the lashes nicely and it literally works overtime. I had no flakes or smudges from morning until night, and had to use an oil-based eye makeup remover to take it off! If you have trouble keeping mascara on your lashes, definitely check this one out because I was impressed by its longevity.

Will you be embracing the bold vampy lip look this fall?

  73. I will definitely be wearing bold vampy lips (although it is spring in my part of the world)! I find that in the colder months, vampy lips blend well with all my clothes, and in the warmer months, vampy lips are a good contrast with summery whites to "sharpen up" an outfit. Enter me, please :)
