Channel your inner goth

Headlining runways around the globe, the dark cherry lip colour variation is a bold and beautiful statement. Match with a sharp and structured outfit, or create a statement edge to a more casual dress and show that you mean business. Use a lip liner to ensure you nail this full lip look.

I woke up like this

There’s no better way to let your outfit do the talking than a complementary nude or matte colour.

Opt for a gloss and loosen up around the edges to create a blended look.


Awesomely autumnal
