Purple Haze | Best Purple Lipsticks

Wednesday, June 24, 2015

If there's one trend I thought I'd never get on board with (possibly even more than the nude lip), it's the purple lip. 

As a fair skinned girl, both colors mentioned above can be what your nightmares are made of. Ironically, these are both now some of my favorites lips to rock! Insanity. 

I wanted to share with you my favorite purple lipsticks as they have been my go to lately!

They look intimidating in the tube, which is probably why I never gravitated towards them, but once swatched, they become  way less scary. If you can handle a fuchsia type "bold" lip, I strongly recommend you try purple. It's a subtle, yet fun twist on more familiar colors.

Luckily for you these are all super affordable options and all formulas I love and have talked about before so it's no shocker that they are from Maybelline and ColourPop haha

Maybelline Rebel Bloom Lipstick in Orchid Ecstasy - This is the one that really sold me on the purple. As soon as I tried it on, I couldn't get enough. Probably still my favorite out of the bunch.
Maybelline Vivids in Brazen Berry - Once I was sold on this hue, I heard YouTuber Nikki Phillippi saying this was her favorite and had to try it (I'm not at all influenceable). Another hit!
Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipstick in Vibrant Violet - I finally got my hands on a few new shades from the line and just HAD to get this one. If you follow me on Instagram, you know I am already in L-O-V-E with it.

ColourPop Lippie Stix in Fern - This one is a bit different, it's a bit more edgy and less vibrant (as it is a cool toned purple). If I over do it, it gives me a bit of a dead girl lip haha but when done right it's so lovely and unique! I'm wearing it in my ColourPop x CoffeeBreakWithDani quad review which you can check out HERE!

What do you guys think? Would you rock the purple trend? If you already do, what are some of your favorites?

Talk to you soon!

  2. Oh god. Please do. In my/your defense, they're all pretty affordable so.... :P Fern is really cooled toned though, like almost has a hint of gray in it, but I love it!! You can see it in one of my ColourPop looks here : http://www.blossominblush.com/2015/06/colourpop-x-coffeebreakwithdani.html
