Besides that owl in the Facebook Messenger app, purple is my spirit animal. Purple has always been my favorite color. I am talking all shades. Orchid, amethyst and eggplant…I love it all! I can’t explain it, but we have had a deep love affair for quite some time.
As I stated in a prior blog post, I love lipstick. I love playing with make-up in general, but mostly lips and the reason is very simple. If you change you lip shade, you change how you look. You could rock a straight nude and look completely different than if you rock an orange or hot pink lip. Pops of color on the lips is on trend lately and I took the opportunity to play around with purple.

I tried this trend three ways. Two are proper lip products while one is not (obviously suspect 3 is not the proper lip product).
- Suspect 1 yields a beautifully glossy lip that is so flirty you will make yourself blush.
- Suspect 2 gives off questionably goth vibe, but still keeps it wearable since it is just on the border of too dark.
- Suspect 3, honestly, was just for fun! This was way too high maintenance to be wearable at all. To apply this I applied concealer all over my lips then carefully drew in and pressed on the pigment. Unless wearing this for something very specific or just to have fun…this is neither practical nor long wearing as a lip product.
My theory on wearing lip colors: if you don’t like it then don’t look! The worst thing that can happen from wearing a fun lippie is that you decide you are glad you tried it and you can wipe it off. Or, you can save it for a fun Halloween costume. It ain’t permanent, girl! So, why not? You’ve literally got nothing to lose when experimenting with new lip colors.
Until next time, plant nothing but love.
