Don’t tell me you haven’t searched high and low for the perfect lipstick shade too. You haven’t? Okay I might be the weird one. But then again, due to a difference in undertones and colouring and such, different lipsticks look different of different people (lol I couldn’t think of anything else to say. I’m sorry)
From now, I present my quests for the perfect shades, starting with purples.
I love purple. Purple lips even more. I see someone rocking a purple pout and I have to have it. But then I try it and it’s too light/too glossy/just not my bag.
Let me introduce you to my small collection of purple lipsticks–
• LA Girl Glazed Lip Paint in Seduce (which I have reviewed here)
• Mac Heroine
• Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Shameless (reviewed here)
• LA Girl Glazed Lip Paint in Daring (reviewed here)
• Black Radiance Plum Orchid (review here)
Top to bottom: seduce, Heroine shameless, daring, plum orchid
I realised that Black Radiance plum orchid and Revlon ColorBurst shameless look quite alike
Top plum orchid
The only noticeably difference to me is that shameless has more blue undertones.
I still haven’t found my perfect purple yet. Or maybe I have and I haven’t realized it. But of this lot, my favourites have to be definitely shameless and plum orchid because they’re dark and super long lasting and pack major kapow which is exactly what I look out for in a lipstick.
I realised now that I’ve been actively blogging and reading other blogs that my Mac Heroine might not be exactly authentic but I like it nonetheless.
What’s your favourite purple lipstick? Got any recommendations?
Love and hugs,
