Makeup Trend: Purple Lipstick

I feel like it was just a couple months ago that people were trading their children for MAC’s Heroine lipstick.  It was actually years ago, though, and now even the drugstore has made some really beautiful red-toned purple lipsticks.  If you’re looking to coat your lips with this trendy color, there are plenty of shades and price points to choose from.  Check em out!

Bite Beauty Luminous Lip Creme in Violet

Finish:  Shine, similar to Mac’s CremeSheen

Price:  $24 (here) I bought mine in a duo (like this) which doesn’t seem to be available online, but check in stores because it was only $12 and you can try two shades.

Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Shameless


Find my review for the Revlon ColorBurst Balms here.

Finish:  Matte, but has a nice sheen for the first 1-2 hours of wear.

Price:  $9.49 (here)

Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids in Brazen Berry

Find my review for the Maybelline Color Sensational Lipsticks here.

Finish:  Matte

Price:  $7.49 (here)

MAC Smoked PurpleIMG_1464

Finish:  Matte (similar to Cyber)

Price:  $16 (here)

If you’re sick of pinks and peaches but aren’t sure how to wear such a bold color, I recommend a sharp monotone eye.  Of the four, I think Maybelline’s Color Sensational Lipstick in Brazen Berry is the easiest shade to wear, so you might want to to try that as your gateway lipstick.  What are some other purple lipstick I’ve missed?

All The Best,
