The cold season is always a great time to experiment with dark, rich colours, especially on your lips. Plum and berry lips are the way to go if you are looking to add some edge to your normal make-up look. Here are some of my favourite plum/berry lip products that I own.

Although it may be a bit intimidating to wear such bold and dark colours on your lips, there is definitely a berry/plum colour out there to compliment your skintone. Allure.com has some good advice on how to pick your berry lip colour, but I think you must just go out and sample a few colours to see which suits you the best!

Have you tried any great berry or plum colours lately? I'd love to know...
