Hello and happy Sunday. Last week’s post was probably a bit too long, but don’t worry, today’s will not be like that. If you’re looking for lippies that are bolder than your usual pinks and nudes, but that aren’t super extreme, then keep on reading because today I’ll share my purple and brown lippies. Let get started, shall we?
This is what I mean by “bold but not super extreme,” at least for me it’s still a shade I could casually wear on a weekend. I have a problem, however, with this line of liquid lipsticks by Maybelline and is the super chemical scent of these products. If strong scented lippies don’t bother you, then I think you’ll enjoy this a lot.
This lipstick walks the fine line between a purple and a pink, but I think it’s part of the former because it has a lilac undertone. That undertone is what makes it more wearable than those bubblegum pinks I showed you last week, and what makes the shade look more intense even if it is still light. If you have pale skin and have the same problem I have when wearing light lip products, then you can try this out and I’m sure it won’t look like you applied concealer on your lips.
I am a lover of dark lipsticks, even if I don’t wear them as often because of my current job. This one is the classic dark plum that is vampy but still kind of serious and classy. It used to be my go-to shade for the fall, and sometimes when I need a little bit of darkness in my look, I reach for it.
If you want your true-purple vamp, then you have to get this liquid lipstick. Honestly, it’s pure dark purple goodness. To me it’s one of those shades that looks good with jeans and Converse on a Saturday morning, and with a faux-fur coat and pleather leggings that same Saturday, only way later. I love this line of liquid lipsticks for their pigmentation and opacity, and whenever I wear one of these, I don’t have to worry about reapplying every ten minutes, only once a day if anything.
This is a more intense version of the Power Peony lipstick. It is darker, and it’s got more purple, which makes the color more intense. For some reason, in the tube it looks way more purple than it actually is, but if you decide to try it on you’ll see it’s way less intimidating than it appears. In my opinion, it’s a great shade if you want to start slow on the purples game.
A purple-based fuchsia is still a purple in my books, okay? It is a darker version of the lipstick I just talked to you about, which means it can also be a little bit more intense and less appropriate for some people’s everyday looks.
You can’t actually see this because it’s a clear lip gloss. I’m still adding it to this haul because it’s got purple micro-glitter, and I think it’s a great lip topper for looks with purple lips. If you wear it by itself, you’re not really going to catch any color, just the overall gloss, but it’s nice and inexpensive and a good option too if you’re going for a natural look.
This lipgloss is what got me into trying brown lippies. It is opaque enough, and I think the fact that the shade is kind of dark makes it even more intense. I’ve worn it by itself, and sometimes I’ve used it as a topper for one of my brown-based nude lippies.
What are you saying? You want a super intense and opaque brown lipstick? Okay, I got you covered. Club Hopper is the ultimate brown lipstick for me. I wear it during the day and I rock it at night too. I love how it looks with just about each and every earth tone there is, but then again, it looks awesome with blue and purple. Yes, I love it, but I always take my time when applying it because it is so pigmented, it can easily ruin a whole look if for some reason it smudges before it’s completely dry.
But, Camila, are you sure this is the lipstick you wanted to haul? Yes, I’m sure, and I’m aware that it’s more of a brown-based red. It is, however, nowhere near a true red, and it’s also way too intense to be called a nude. So, what am I going to call it? I’ll call it a brown base. It means you are going to get that brown vibe even if you aren’t ready yet to wear a true brown.
Do you wear brown or purple lippies? What is your favorite product in either of these shades? Let me know in the comments!
Love, Miss Camila
