Trend on Trial: Purple Lips

If you love pink lips but are scared of red, purple may be the perfect colour to change up your makeup look. A gorgeous purple lip makes the ultimate statement and is best worn with a neutral eye.

Purple is quickly becoming a must-try lip trend, with a lot of makeup lovers going for the dark plum shade that instantly gives your look a slightly edgy feel. IMG_2191

However, if don’t want to go too dark but still want to try the trend, there are lots of brighter purples or you could even go for a light colour such as lilac. Barry M and Revlon do some fab lilac lippy’s and with spring just around the corner it may be the perfect colour to update your look.


I recently purchased two purple lippy’s from Maybelline: Hot Plum and Plum Passion. One is vibrant and leans towards a more pink shade, whilst the other is much darker and striking.


Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lipstick in Hot Plum – it certainly is vivid and is a gorgeous bright purple shade.


Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick Plum Passion – this one is much darker and is my favourite of the two. It can be a tricky colour to pull off but if you keep the rest of your makeup bright and eyes quite neutral with a nice cream shadow, a little eyeliner and lashings of mascara – it would make for quite a striking makeup look. I can’t wait to wear this Plum Passion for a night out.

What do you think, will you be trying the purple lip?
