my take on burgundy lips...

{J. Crew boys flannel, Princess by Vera Wang jacket, Paige denim c/o, thrifted bolo tie c/o from Savers, Nine West boots via DSW}

Remember yesterday when I professed my new found love for the latest fall hue? Burgundy, or Oxblood as used by the fashion set. Granted I have yet to find the perfect pre-mixed shade, the images above show me in a mix of Lancome's brown liner, and a no name berry lip stain I found in my makeup box. I'd love to hear your thoughts on your fave beauty brands that do a good matte burgundy lip shade. I'm on the hunt for the perfect cocktail party lipstick!

  13. This has been one of my fav lip shades for a couple of years now! I normally where a Revlon shade (sorry don't know the name) with MAC Oversexed gloss on top and Buxom Brooklyn is also a good option.

  17. Burgundy lips look so great on you! I don't think I can really pull off shades that dark with my complexion without looking borderline goth. Not that that's a bad thing, it's just not my thing. :)
