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.
- L’Oreal Infallible Le Rouge: Charming Lilac
- Colourpop Lippie Stix: Brills
- Colourpop Lippie Stix: Fern
- MAC: Up the Amp
- 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.
