When it comes to makeup, Kim Kardashian West is a trendsetter. It's undeniable, the star and her famous family are single-handedly responsible for the contouring and matte lip trends. Now while sister Kylie Jenner is happy to experiment with lip shades, Kim isn't so keen. Sure, she'll rock a red lip on occasion, and is rarely seen without a nude lip but a berry lip shade is off-limits. In an interview with makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic, KKW says she truly hates the look—at least on herself. "I was pregnant, hugely pregnant, and I did this interview for Givenchy and he put a berry lip on me," she explains. "I just despise a berry lip for me." It's true: We googled "Kim Kardashian lipstick" and there were only a couple of pictures where she was wearing what could be described as a berry-like hue.
To each her own, but berry lips will remain in our repertoire despite Kim's aversion. Shop some of our favourites below.
Thanks to their all-natural, oil-based formulas, Ilia's Tinted Lip Conditioners nourish lips in addition to adding the perfect sheer wash of colour. We particularly love this berry-stained hue, which becomes more saturated as you layer it on.
For a deeper, vampier shade, look no further than this matte formula from Charlotte Tilbury.
We're loving the rich hue of this long-lasting formula.
