Maybelline’s Colorsensational lipstick in Bali Berry Shine (105)

This lipstick applied just a little less cool than the name implied. Not much; but the base color plus the faint gold shimmer gave this more of a “candied berry” appearance than the richer, magenta- or fuchsia-toned red that I often visualize when something's described as “berry red”.
