From electric-hued eyeliners to sweet new shades for your next manicure, suffice it to say: We’re pretty excited about switching up our beauty routines for spring. We’ve already nailed down our go-to neutral lip for the season, but that begs the question—how do we amp things up for an evening look that pairs well with balmier temperatures and that coquettish spring-fling vibe? While chic crimson is always a classic, we think now is a fine time to embrace its slightly vampier counterpart: the deep berry lip. While burgundy shades are a wintertime staple and bright coral is best left for summer’s sultry nights, berry stands apart for being posh but a little playful too.
Below, we’ve rounded up our favorite mouthwatering berry shades in coveted matte formulas that are guaranteed to deliver the perfect springtime statement lip.
