Purple Lipstick Round-Up


Hi guys! I have another round-up style post for you today! This time we are going to take a look at the purple lipsticks that I have in my collection. Purple is a colour that, depending on the shade, some people are not comfortable wearing. I happen to love wearing purple lipsticks but this could be rooted in my deep affection for the colour purple.


  1. L’Oreal Infallible Le Rouge: Charming Lilac
  2. Colourpop Lippie Stix: Brills
  3. Colourpop Lippie Stix: Fern
  4. MAC: Up the Amp
  5. Kat Von D Studded Lipstick: L.U.V.

I’m going to start off with the one that I like the least and that, surprisingly, is the Kat Von D Studded Lipstick in L.U.V. This is a matte formula and it is incredibly drying and drags across the lips. It would probably work with a slippery primer to help it glide on smoother, but I haven’t found one that works with it yet. It’s a shame because it is a beautiful colour.

The most extreme purple of the bunch is the Colourpop Lippie Stix in the shade Brills. It is an intense, cool-toned light purple matte shade. I adore it though and wear it fairly often. Fern on the other hand is a more wearable purple that leans more magenta and has a cream finish. Sadly, Fern has been discontinued.

L’Oreal’s Charming Lilac is another very wearable purple shade but is a touch deeper and darker than Fern. My hands down favourite of these lipsticks is MAC’s Up the Amp. It is very similar to Fern, however it is a bit lighter. It is an amplified cream finish so it s creamy but has excellent colour payoff. I also find it wears fairly long and fades nicely as it wears leaving a slight tint to the lips.

I do own a purple liquid lipstick but I am going to include that in a separate post dedicated to liquid lipsticks.

  1. I keep looking at Up The Amp, it looks so pretty. Is it pretty wearable or more of a statement? I’m not brave enough to wear full on purple, although I wish I was! x

    1. I think it’s pretty wearable! It was my go-to for a long time 🙂 I think it depends on skin tone though. But I’m really fair skinned and i don’t think it’s that bold.

      1. Oh I didn’t realize that’s the lipstick you used! I watched the video when you uploaded it! So pretty! We’re pretty much the same foundation shade so I think it would look similar on us both. It’s definitely not too “in your face” purple. I love it! Thanks!

        1. No problem! Happy to help 🙂
