Hi, everyone! If you peeked at my last post, you'll know that I've taken on quite the undertaking. I've organized my entire lipstick/gloss/stain/butter collection by colour family and am swatching each and every one for you! I really wanted to appreciate my stash and weed out unnecessary dupes and thought that documenting the process would be lots of fun. So far, it's been just that!
The inaugural Lip Stash by Hue post was all about Bright Pinks and today's installment features the range of purple lip products in my collection. The selection isn't massive, but contains a nice range of sheer grapes to bold magentas:
The purple-toned lip products in my collection are:
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Aura
MAC Amplified Lipstick in Up the Amp
Lime Crime Velvetine in Utopia
MAC Matte Lipstick in Heroine
Revlon ColourBurst Matte Balm in Shameless
Illamasqua Intense Lip Gloss in Fierce
Here are the lip products all lined up, followed by swatches of each (in the same order):
And here are each of the purple shades on my lips, in the context of a completed makeup look:
|Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Aura|
|MAC Amplified Lipstick in Up the Amp|
|Lime Crime Velvetine in Utopia|
|MAC Matte Lipstick in Heroine|
|Revlon ColourBurst Matte Balm in Shameless|
|Illamasqua Intense Lip Gloss in Fierce|
Overall, I am so, so happy with my purple lip stash! It's one I've only grown over the past couple of years and I think I've curated a nicely balanced collection. It's got a mix of matte, gloss, sheer, and opaque formulas with a range of warm and cool, bold and wearable shades. While I'm not eager to really expand this corner of my collection (as I don't tend to reach for purples on an everyday basis), I'm most definitely keeping them all. Each is truly unique!
Which of these purple-toned lippies is your favourite? What is your most-loved purple lip colour?
Thanks for stopping by!
