Come on over to the dark side. It's pretty & trendy here. Dark lips are a big thing this autumn & winter and I couldn't be more happy about it. My very favourite dark lipsticks have always been burgundy/plum-ish, these shades make everyone look so chic and on myself work a million times better than true red shades. I'd definitely choose burgundy over red any time. So even though I've been longing for sunnier days and am ready to embrace spring time, I am really feeling the dark plum lippie. There's no need to be afraid of bold lips, let me demonstrate.
I've lined up a few different burgundy/plum-ish lipsticks with different colour payoff and finishes. During daytime I always opt for easygoing - I have no interest in a demanding lippie when I am at the office or out and about for work. My daytime makeup needs to be functional. For events or other special evenings (dinners, drinks,..) I am willing to pay a little more attention. I'll even scrub my lips for a smoother application!

I hope this gave you some burgundy lip inspiration - it looks like winter time is going to stick around for a good while longer, so you might as well dig in & go all out with plum..
