Beautiful Berry Lips for Fall


Fall is upon us, and everyone is all berrrrrry this and berry that. What is it about the cooler seasons that brings our love of berry and plum tones? Well, I’m especially excited because, in the past, I could never find the right berry tone for my complexion. It seems many berry lip shades run a bit brown, and that never looked too fab on my face. However, this season is chock full of berry berries with beautiful plummy and raspberry tones…definitely more blue-based berries, which my face wants to high five.

Best of all? These berry lip shades are all super safe and natural. Green beauty junkies unite! (By the way, I am learning so much from the green beauty online community lately, so I’m putting together a post of my favorite green beauty Instagram accounts and blogs for you all to check out.)

Without further ado, here are my top 4 berry shades for fall.



Bite Beauty Butter Cream Lipstick in Rosewood


This is a plummy rose shade – the most subtle of my berry options. Love this one for daily errands, and it has a very creamy texture. Feels great on the lips. (FYI – Bite Beauty lip products do have synthetic, food grade dyes in them, but still score relatively low for toxicity.)

    Love the Bite shade! Is there any shimmer or is it more matte?

    Ok, I have a technical question here . . .

    Do you throw away your lipsticks etc. after the date has passed or are you able to use them all up before then? I looooove lippies but I find that I don’t allow myself to purchase them because many products, esp. the natural ones, are only good for 6month to a year and even with daily use I can’t get through more than 3-5 lip products in that time frame.

    I always wonder what bloggers do!
