The temp of recent, pretty much reflects my lippy mood. I've always been into the pinks and corals, but recently, I've decided to switch up to the..... DARKS!
❶ REVLON Colourburst Lipstick in Grape
My first pick for a dark bold lip was with Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Grape. It's the darkest lipstick I own for the moment (might change soon since I've been eye-ing some MAC shades). I've worn it once, but I feel like the formula sucks. It's creamy and moisturising, but applies blotchy and can slide around on the lips and is prone to bleeding. Not somethin' I like in a dark lippy, especially when I don't own any dark lip liners. Urgh.
❷ AUSTRALIS Go Long Longwear Lipstick in Glam*
I still really wanted to try out the dark lips though, so I rummaged through my stash! Nop. Didn't find any! Rummaged through my sister's stash... FOUND ONE!
I've found one guys, I've found oneeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.
And it's actually mine. She kidnapped it away from me for yonks. I've swatched it here, but since I was never really into dark lippies, my sister decided to adopt it to her stash, I guess.
It may not look extremely dark in the tube, but because my skintone is somewhat fair, so it looks much more intense on my skintone! My friend told me, "I like your purple lip on Saturday night" when I was wearing this, lol. wat?
Haven't used these lippies in yonks. Love their formula! They can be slightly drying, but it doesn't bother me at all~ I love how it stays, how it's matte, how it doesn't smear and bleed... LOVE!
I think it's time for me to kidnap this lippy back to my stash. Sorry sis!
❸ MODELS PREFER Lipstick in Stay Out Late
I've only found this in my stash recently. Bought it as one of the packs they had... Can't remember how many decades ago.. lol. I've only worn it twice, and so far, all I could tell you is... it has a creamy formula and does kinda slips around upon first application so definitely needs to be blotted down. However, it doesn't apply to be as slippery and uneven as Revlon's Grape, thank god.
Still need to experiment around with this, so till then!
AND those are the three dark lippies I've found and have been trying to experiment with, to be all seasonal-trendy and shit, you know? :P
Any dark lippy lovers who could recommend me any affordable dark lippies?
I've been eye-ing Rebel and Diva from MAC, but not sure if I would really keep with this dark lippy trend long enough for it to be worth the investment. Eep.
