Hey – long time no see! Sailor Sophie here with your Thursday beauty post!
I love lipstick as much as the next beauty obsessive. Whether it’s a retro red, a neutral nude or a candy pink, I’m all over it. Purple lips though, is someone I have only recently discovered and I can tell you, I am loving it! The vampy look has been big beauty news for a few seasons now, on catwalks and celebrities alike, but the transition from wine tones to purples is a pretty recent development. Or, if you’re not a fan of a dark lip, lilac and lavender are a great Summery alternative!
While still not as easy to come by as red or pink, loads of popular brands have jumped aboard the purple trend, so whether you’re got your purse strings tied tightly or want to treat yourself (or perhaps someone else!) it’s becoming increasing easy to find a purple options for every taste and budget.
1 – MAC ‘Up The Amp’ Lipstick – £14
2 – OCC Lip Tar in ‘Hoochie’ – £13.50
3 – Topshop Lipgloss in ‘Long Time No See’ – £4
4 – Lime Crime Lipstick in ‘Poisonberry’ – $15.99
5 – Sleek Matte Lipstick in ‘Exxxagerate’ – £4.99
6 – MAC Lip Pencil in ‘Herione’ – £12
