OUR BEST BERRY LIPSTICKS FOR EVERY SKIN TONE
With handfuls of lipstick colors being classified as berry, it might seem tough to find the perfect fit. We’re here to make it easier than ever to find your new favorite lippy. Not only do you have to take your skin tone into consideration, but you also have to keep your undertones in mind. You’ll want to match your skin’s undertones with the undertones of your berry lipstick. Not sure what your undertones are? Simply flip your wrist to find out! If your veins look green, you have warm undertones. If they appear more blue or purple, you have cool undertones. Read below to find your berry match!
OUR BEST BERRY LIPSTICKS FOR FAIR SKIN TONES
If you have fair skin, you may be intimidated by reaching for a rich, berry hue—but there’s no need to fear! Read below to find your cool and warm-toned matches.
If you have warm undertones…try a strawberry lipstick. Think classic red with just a touch more orange. The addition of orange tones in this color can add warmth to any look! We love the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in Lacquered Strawberry.
If you have cool undertones…try a sheer, shiny berry lipstick. Want to rock a beautiful berry without going completely opaque? It’s totally doable! When opting for a sheer berry shade, you’ll be able to amp up the natural tone of your lips with just enough berry to get your point across. We recommend the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in Glassy Garnet.
OUR BEST BERRY LIPSTICKS FOR MEDIUM SKIN TONES
Need a berry lipstick match for medium skin tones? If you have a medium skin tone, you have a little more freedom with the range of shades that are flattering to you.
If you have warm undertones…wear a raspberry hue. Not quite ready for the darkness of a traditional red berry? Opt for raspberry instead! This deep, rosy pink hue looks especially gorgeous on warm, dark skin. It adds just enough color while still looking somewhat natural. Try the L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipcolour in Raspberry Rush.
If you have cool undertones…reach for a plum lipstick. If you like to make a statement with your makeup, plum lipstick is the perfect berry for you. Whether you want to go sheer, shimmery, or totally matte, you’ll rock the look! We recommend the L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Matte Lipstick in Berry Matte Pink.

If you have cool undertones…switch things up with a metallic mulberry lipstick.
