Fall 2012 Trend: Burgundy Colored Lips



Hello everyone!

I’ve never really been one to follow fashion trends by season but a friend of mine has been influencing me to update myself on the latest trends! Since I am a beauty blogger and not a fashion blogger, I decided to update myself with the latest makeup trends for fall. There were  lots of new exciting Fall 2012 runway makeup trends and I chose my favorite one: The Burgundy Colored Lip. Out of all the trends, I find this the most wearable. That and because I am in love with lipsticks!!!

Apparently for fall, bloody red lips aren’t dramatic enough! This is a more dramatic take on the classic red lip and it kind of borders on a gothic vibe.

Scroll down to see my take on the trend and to learn about tips on how to achieve this trend using affordable makeup! :)


My take on the trend:

I looked for a drugstore lipstick and the best one I found is Mauve-ulous from the Maybelline Colorsensational line. :)


  1. Make sure to exfoliate your lips because this shade would not look good on chapped lips. You can use petroleum jelly or your choice of lip balm for this. :)
  2. For a matte effect, you may dab some translucent powder on your lips after the lipstick has been applied.
  3. To be able to wear this on day time, make sure that the makeup on your entire face is minimal. You want people to focus on  your pretty lips! ;)
  4. To be able to wear this out at night, just pair it with a neutral colored smokey eye. For a night out of partying, feel free to go for a dramatic smokey eye! Just don’t use bright colors to avoid looking like a coloring book. teehee!
I also wanted to use the trend on my nails so I picked a super deep wine colored polish the last time I had my nails done. :)
You don’t really need to follow exact trends! Take inspiration from the latest trends and make them your own. :)
That’s it! :) Would you be willing to try this trend or would you rather go for the classic red lip? :) Feel free to share your comments below! If you have any questions, you may comment below as well!
Watch out for my review on the Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in Mauve-ulous. :)

      hi nads! i’ll try to feature more MAC-Philippines based products! MAC releases new collections kasi regularly so it might be overwhelming if i post like all the products with their prices. :)) However, generally, MAC products here are more expensive. :) Mac lipstick in the US cost around USD15 while lipsticks here cost 1k. :D

      for my makeup collection, probably when I reach more subscribers? ;) haha watch out for it!

      thanks!! it means a lot to me when I get feedback from readers! hehehe
