Say goodbye to the red lip: this is the new lipstick hue we’re all obsessed with


A red lip has been our fail-safe beauty look for yonks, providing us with a dash of sophistication in the evenings as well as the ability to look vaguely pulled together after a night of little sleep or heavy (gin) drinking.

But according to Pinterest, our affections for just a classic red lip may be waning, with the social media site reporting a steep rise in the pinning of images of berry lip colours.

A brilliantly diverse look, berry shades encompass everything from our beloved red to darker blackcurrant and blackberry shades, and even a hint of blueberry for the truly bold.

With a huge 71% spike in the number of pins, berry lips are set to be one of the biggest beauty trends for spring.
