Well as you all can tell by now i love a bright lip colour. This spring summer i’ve been mainly in orange red’s and pinks. I’m not bored of them, i never will be but i thought it was about time i had a change so I’ve been looking for a perfect purple.
Last winter i wore M.A.C’S “up the amp’ as seen in this old style post HERE
it’s a gorgeous colour but i fancied something a bit more vampy.
GLOSS “LONG TIME NO SEE” TOPSHOP
LIPSTICK “ESP” ILLAMASQUA
LIPSTICK AND GLOSS
I purchased this rich purple from the amazing cosmetic brand Illamasqua. They have one of the best ranges for bright colours and this ESP really stuck out for me. It’s a condensed matte lipstick so even though the colour is bright you really need to load it on and keep going over it to make sure the colour is even all over the lip.
The topshop lipgloss alone looks like a normal clear gloss which is a shame as the violet tint it gives off in the tube is so cute and it would be nice to have that shimmer on the lips. I like the way it looks in the tube but love how it defined the lipstick. The shimmer really came out and they complemented each other perfectly. For me together they give of the perfect purple i was looking for.
I lined my lips with M.A.C’S magna lip liner which has a more pink tone and brightened it up a little.
What do you guys think? Do you like them separately or together?
I’m going to wear it for the rest of the evening and see what my girls think!
Happy Weekend guys.
Lots Of love
