Accessorize Beauty Intense Colour Lipstick in Passionate* – £4.95
available from Accessorize and Superdrug

The avid fashion spies amongst you will know that AW12 is set to be the season of darkness, an eerie voyage from lady-like florals and pretty pastels to blackened hues, edgy designs and full-on grunge. Gothic figures strutted the catwalks drenched in rich textures and elaborate brocades, beautifully mirroring this devilry trend in their makeup with heavily-lined eyes and berry-stained lips. Clarets, violets and burgundy were all present and this on-trend lipstick from Accessorize could serve you well if you are considering going over to the dark side this season!

Firstly, I love the packaging of this lipstick and it follows the iconic Accessorize image to a tee. The top is stocked with a little extra lipstick for those quick touch-ups on the go and each product is laced with a vanilla-sweet fragrance which is really nice. Passionate gives you a gorgeous, deep colour with a matte finish and impressive lasting power. The colour is perfect for achieving those wine-stained lips, layering your lips with a hit of rich burgundy. But unfortunately the consistency isn’t the best and you need to be equipped with a good lip brush and a lot of patience to achieve a flawless finish. The formula is a little drying and doesn’t smooth that easily onto your lips so you have to really commit to the colour and build it up to get the strong punch of purple you want. For the modest price though, this lipstick is fun and gives you a great colour pay-off.

Will you be embracing the dark lip trend this season?

    This is going to be such a big trend for A/W and I am in love with it! This really suits you – you should wear darker shades more often πŸ™‚

    You look lovely Milly! I LOVE my pink/coral/peach lipsticks but might give darker lips a try though that is well out of my comfort zone. You look lovely so I might have to brave it and try it out!

    This is such a bold colour. I was surprised to see that it wasn't as dark as I was expecting though, and it really suits you, great for a statement lip. I am definitely a fan of berry lips for winter although I am not sure if this particular shade might be a little bit out of my comfort zone. Will have to try it and see! πŸ™‚

    Gorgeous colour, actually looks like it would work well with most skin colours too, whether very pale or very dark.
