With fall in full swing, it’s time to ditch the corals and pinks of summer and bust out the vampy, dark lip colors.
I’ve really been into using lip pencils lately as they offer a matte finish and great lasting power. With a good dose of lip balm underneath, they usually sit on the lips comfortably for hours.
One of my favorites as of late has been the MAC Lip Pencil in Heroine, a beautiful pinky purple that screams fall.
Now I’ve been weary about Heroine lipstick as it reads as a full on purple that is just a tad too out there for me, but the lip pencil pulls a bit more pink and thus makes the color much more wearable for a pale face like mine.
The pencil is very dry, so it is imperative that the lips are in top shape with no dry patches. But applied in thin layers and blended with a lip brush, Heroine is a gorgeous berry purple that makes a statement without going into the usual directions of red, orange, or pink.
I think this is a beautiful twist on a fall berry and something that looks incredibly modern and chic on the lips without being too over the top.
