15 Marsala coloured lipsticks for 2015

Earlier this month Pantone announced that the colour of the year for 2015 would be – Marsala!  There were mixed reactions on my twitter feed, however I was really pleased. The colour is such a sophisticated shade of red that suits literally all skin tones. The bold lip in berry shades has been here there and everywhere this season and even I found myself adding darker shades to my otherwise abundant nude collection of lipsticks; hellooo Diva, Amourous & Captive (all MAC).
