Here’s a funny thing: when I was a kid, my grandparents had this huge, old mulberry tree near their house and I loved to climb on it and pick mulberries (well, and eat them, obviously!). That’s actually my favourite fruit so when I saw that IsaDora launched a new collection which includes 10 lipsticks with matching lip liners (7 shades are totally new) and that one of them was called ‘mulberry’, I just knew it would be a great shade and that I had no choice but to purchase it! Fast forward a few days – here are my (lip)swatches and first impressions!
- IsaDora Sculpting Lipliner Waterproof 66 Mulberry (0.3 g / 89 SEK / €9.30) is a matte red wine-ish shade with a slight brown undertone. It goes on easily but it is definitely drying and I would recommend exfoliation before applying it since it does emphasize any imperfection. Another thing is that it can’t be worn alone – way too dry for that (and I like drier lipsticks and lip liners, LOL).
- IsaDora Lip Desire Sculpting Lipstick 66 Mulberry (3.3 g / 139 SEK / €14.50) is a darker creamy wine colour with purple undertone. Goes on easily and looks great with matching lip liner (though not really matching since these shades are slightly different, but that’s not really an issue once the products are applied). Once it’s applied on top of the lip liner, I definitely have no issues with dryness.
Here are my photos and swatches!

Do you like mulberry (fruit / lip products)? :)
