Hey lovelies !
Happy Friday! I can’t express my happiness about this week finally being over. I had to give a presentation and lead a discussion on American politics and well basically it’s just been a really busy week and I’m glad I’m finally getting a bit of a break. I’m really excited as I’m finally going to see my best friend again and I haven’t seen her in almost a month. But enough of me rambling now.
Today’s post is about dark lips! Now the darkest I’ve ever gone is Mac Diva, which is a pretty dark red but not nearly as dark as many other lipsticks out there. I’ve always really loved the look of pale skin and a really dark lip. I don’t really know why. Maybe it’s because of the contrast. So when I recently went on the Makeup Revolution website and spotted their super affordable lipsticks I decided it was finally time to bare it all and get a really dark one. One of the shades I got was Vamp, which is a super dark purple, that looks almost black in the bullet.
Since they are so super affordable I thought why not just try it out and if I feel like it’s not for me it’s not like I’ve wasted a big amount of money. So even though it’s not going to become one of my every staples I’m really into this lipstick. I love the really dark purple and it has a really nice velvety but still a bit glossy finish. I think for a shade this dark I prefer them to be a bit more on the glossy side because matte, I feel, would be a bit too extreme for me.
Additionally it feels quite nice on the lips and it’s pretty long lasting as well. So, if you’re like me and you’ve always wanted to try a really dark lip look but weren’t brave enough so far give this one a go.
What is your opinion on really dark lips? Love ’em or hate ’em?
