A hidden treasure – NYX ‘Black Cherry’ Lipstick
Do you ever have massive spending sprees and then forget about the things that you’ve bought? I do it all the time! Spend a fortune on boxes of goodies,
hide it so that the other half doesn’t find it store it away somewhere safe and then promptly forget all about it. The great thing when this happens is that when you do eventually find your goodies it’s like finding a chest of hidden treasure.Today’s pirate booty (that was discovered in a box under the sofa) is the very juicy Black Cherry Round Lipstick from NYX.
Black Cherry is a dark berry red shade that, on my lips, almost looks like a blood red.
Now this might look quite dark to some of you, but it’s definitely not one of those dark ‘goth reds’ that is completely unwearable on most skin tones. As much as I love my gothy reds and burgundies, they’re quite hard to pull off for that everyday casual/work look…unless of course your boss embraces that ‘crazed vampire’ look.
As dark red shades go Black Cherry is a really wearable shade and is definitely not something that will frighten the neighbours. Like all of the other NYX Round Lipsticks it has a lovely creamy consistency that applies very smoothly and evenly. You could smudge it across the lips to give a ‘berry stain’ look or just apply it in the old fashioned way for a gorgeous red pout.
I’m so glad I discovered this because it’s a perfect shade for Autumn and Winter. Actually, scrap that idea. As the British summertime looks like it’s pretty much over already, I might just start wearing it now…which means I then I have an excuse to buy more lipsticks when we really get to Autumn! Hoorah! 🙂
Have you got any favourite reds that you’re just itching to whip as soon as we get to Autumn?
