So yesterday I went purple lipstick shopping at Mecca Maxima.
I love going here the staff are amazing, plus they are happy to help you find a color from any brand they stock.
We only tried 3 in store due to time and color matching with my skin tone.
I learnt something from all this, my natural lip color is very pink unless it is high pigmented lipstick, anything sheer will look pink/reddish on my lips.
Range: Be Legendary Lipstick
Color: Vivid Violet
This was the darkest of the purples I tried. It went on really well. I love the Be legendary range, they are long lasting yet creamy.
I totally would recommend this lippy and color, but it wasn’t want I was really looking for.
Range: Color balm lipstick
This lipstick color was absolutely gorgeous, it has the most mild tingle when applying, I think this is the minty balm component however it didn’t go on as smooth as the smashbox lippy. I recommend using a balm first before applying this lippy.
Brand: Too Faced
Range: Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick
This color is AMAZING. It was my clear favorite. However word of warning with this particular range your lips need to be in perfect condition, if your lips are peeling this isn’t for you. This lippy will last a long time however it will dry out as it drys matte, I recommend applying with a lip brush.
As much as I love it, it’s not for every day use, but it was our favorite. In the last picture that my bestie Trung giving his pout of approval.
I will make another post of the purple lipstick I have purchased to play around with soon. xx
