My Top 5 Purple Lip Colours

Hi guys ! Happy Tuesday . Hope you are having a great week so far. 

Today I'm sharing my Top 5 Purple / Berry toned lip colours that I think is perfect for Valentines day. I prefer more of a purple or pink lip personally on myself, but I will be sharing my favourite red lip colours too. So keep an eye out for the other posts later this week. 

Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter Gumdrop 
I have to admit - on this lipbutter I'm on my 8th tube of this colour since discovering this little magical tube of lipbutter ( I do own a few other colours too ... But this is by far my favourite ) This is a gorgeous light purple colour that does have a sparkle . The colour doesn't last hours but it does last a good 3/4 hours on me, and the best part it's SUPER moisturising. It does fade nice and evenly , which is a huge bonus too especially with eating and drinking. This is one of those colours I have a open one in every bag , all downside though, if it gets super hot , it does melt a little. But nothing a lip brush can't fix. 

Colorpop Lippystix Brills
I've mentioned this colour in my Top 5 Colorpop post HERE , and this is still one of the most gorgeous purples I own. The colour does transfer (which means you might want to keep kissing until later the evening... ) but the colour is so gorgeous and yes ... Smelling like cupcakes is a HUGE bonus. I know Colorpop isn't available super easily to anyone, but this colour is really one that should be on your wish list if you love a purple lip. 

Colorpop Ultra Matte Lychee
The colorpop Ultra Matte's have an impressive formula , they are kiss proof and last all day . (I have to remove this lip colour at night with some make-up remover ) . I know a few people (Especially you Ghila ) want to know from my last post how comfortable they are - I have super sensitive extremely dry lips (and when I have an allergy flare up, they swell really badly too) , and with a good lip exfoliate , and lip balm, these don't irritate my lips at all.  I can wear it all day without my lips feeling itchy or dry . 

Essence Sheer & Shine Lipstick in Sparkling Miracle
I will be reviewing three colours of this range soon, but this is one of my favourites. Yes, it's not super pigmented , but it gives your lips a nice wash of colour , and looks super girly and kissable . And it's nice and hydrating. The colour doesn't last too long though , about an hour or two at most . but then again it's super affordable and easy to pop into your bag. 

Maybelline Baby Lips Dr Rescue Berry Soft
I love the Maybelline Baby Lips Dr Rescue range. While I wasn't a big fan of the normal baby lips , I love most colours of the Dr Rescue range. These are nice and hydrating, perfect for a casaul date night or more natural make-up look - but gives a gorgeous wash of colour. It's really a "Your lips but better" colour . And yes , the colour won't last that long, but this can easily be applied without the need of a mirror to be precise. 

So that's a round up of my Top 5 Purple Lip Colours. Stay tuned on Thursday for my Top 5 Pink Lip colours.

  8. oh wow this is such a nice fun and interesting type of post, i'd like to see more of them. i admire your "courage" with lipstick in experimenting and trying colors and different things. i am so boring on this side, mainly have neutrals and some reds. i used to have a purple liquid once, way before the trend was on, but i hated it and never had the gut to wear it properly. now i wish i did have something like this but i'm not sure which color and shade i should pick and if it would actually look good on me. i always am afraid to look clowny..so, PLEASE show us a swatch pic of this bold purple in the middle!!!!

    1. Awww thanks Ghila. Really appriciate your kind words. I love purple lips , I won't say every shade I own suits me, but I love them non the less. xxx

    2. that so nice of you to say lynn. i would really love to see a swatch of that purple on your lips and i'd really appreciate some reccomendations from you on me.

  9. This product for lips from Maybelline looks really nice, it has great shade, dear :)
