The first item I picked up was Eye Shadow in Cranberry, which is a slightly warm berry pink with subtle golden and rust undertones. It has a Frost finish, so it's highly pigmented with a noticeable sheen. I'd been craving this shadow for some time because I really don't have anything like it in my collection. It was a recent post from Coco at The Beauty Milk that convinced me I needed it!

The lipstick I selected was more of a wild card. For whatever reason, I was in the mood to find a shade that looked intimidatingly deep and bold in the tube, but was wearable on my fair complexion. I tried on a couple others to no avail, but knew it was love when I swiped on Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Good To Be Bad (the name is even fantastic!). The Sheen Supreme line is wonderful for it's semi-sheer, shiny formulas, and the shade itself is a lush wine with berry and subtle brown undertones. It's rare that I opt for a shade that I've never heard of before, but I'm glad I put my biases aside and gave this one a go!

I'm really excited to put these rich, moody shades to work! I feel like they'll be instant standouts in my collection and the perfect sultry hues for Wintertime. Keep your eyes peeled for a Face of the Day using these little lovelies soon! xo
Have you tried either of these shades? What are your favourite berry-toned shadows and lipsticks?
