What men really think about... dark berry lips

So you love to rock a dark red lip. But does the man in your life love the intense look or would he prefer something with a little less drama? We got a panel of men to tell it to us straight.


It’s a bold, striking look that designers loved for their catwalk shows this season. But do the men in our lives who aren’t fashionistas love this dramatic style or do they long for you to tone it down a bit?

Sometimes men are a little shy about giving their honest opinion about our fashion and style choices, but we pinned down 10 of them to tell us what they think of winter berry lips. Spoilers: get the look right, and they’re into it! Check out their comments.

FOR:

“I find this look really dramatic. On the right woman, it adds to her attractiveness. It signifies confidence and attitude,” says Paul Marsh, 39, from London. “That said, it’s definitely an evening make-up look that needs to be worn with the right outfit.”

“I like it in principle but, for me, it depends on the outfit and the rest of the make-up look. I think the lipstick can work well on a darker skin tone – with a dark, formal evening outfit and smoky eye make-up look,” says Benjamin Hutton, 27, from Glasgow. “Otherwise, with other outfits, it’s not my cup of tea and definitely not for every day.”

ON THE FENCE:

“I love lipstick on a woman – it can make them really stand out amongst a crowd, but this is slightly too dark, almost bordering on gothic,” says John Flynn, 34, from Manchester. “The shade needs to suit the person in order for her to pull it off.”

Berry lips look great with sleek, glossy hair, so wash with Pantene Pro-V Smooth and Sleek shampoo and conditioner. For a dramatic look, go for a centre parting and blowdry your hair straight. Tame fly-aways with Pantene Pro-V Smooth & Sleek Dry Oil with Vitamin E and set with a spritz of Pantene Pro-V Style & Protect Shine Hairspray.

I love red lipstick and wear it a lot but the mulberry shade is a little dark for me. Looks good on your model though.

I love the Mulberry Lippy - I have that and Chilli too but my favourite is definitely the Mulberry. Personally I prefer to wear a dark red lippy and not so keen on the nude/pale shades

My opinion of the Braun Silk-expert has gone from strength to strength, it's been so easy to use and a delight to try out, I have been delighted with the results over the last 4 weeks and I'm so happy with the fact I am seeing less hair grow and at a slower rate than usual. This is a great product and really has changed the way I feel about IPL in a positive way! Thanks Braun.
