L-R Nars Never say Never, BeautyUk Plumalicious, Revlon lip butter Raspberry pie and Revlon's Wild Orchid.

Up until a few months ago I was all about the nude lip, (still am in a way) and shuddered at the thought of Reds, bright pinks and purples. In my secret Santa swap the lovely Danielle from Miss Sunshine and Sparkle sent me some gorgeous lippy's from Revlon, ( as well as lots of other fab gifts). Lipsticks that I would never of thought of trying, they we're  purple, a colour I had over looked in the past. I loved them and this prompted me to dig around my stash and find others of the same tones.

Nars Never say never A matte formula of a muted down purple. A dusky pink with a hint of Lilac. Can be great as a introduction into purple lips if you like matte lipsticks.

Revlon Wild Orchid reminds me of Show Orchid from Mac. A bright fuchsia purple, fab for spring and summer and a great colour for a statement lip. The formula is super hydrating and delivers a gorgeous sheen to the lips.

Revlon lip butter in Raspberry Pie. This is really pigmented for a lip butter. I was assuming it to be a hint of a tint but it does in fact deliver quite a punch. Very similar to Wild Orchid but more muted down, not as bright, but still fabulous!

BeautyUk Plumalicious* is a deep plum that will vamp up any look. The formula is matte so is long wearing. I like to wear this patted into the lips for a softer look but can of course be worn as a bold lip colour.
 What are your thoughts on purple lips? Yay or Nay? I would love to read your recommendations on other purple lipsticks you have tried.

  3. Revlon Wild Orchid is BEAUTIFUL!!! It really does look quite like Show Orchid although I think its a much more purple compared to it, Show Orchid is one of my favourites so no wonder I was drawn to Wild Orchid so much xx
