Pucker Up

Purple Pucker Bored with beige and finished with fuchsia, I needed a new lip color. Red? Too retro. Coral? Too common. I wanted something unique and sophisticated, a color that would stand out, create instant polish, and make me feel ready to take on the world.

I tested and wiped, smeared and stained, and finally I had my answer. From plum to periwinkle, I’m officially hooked on purple lipstick!

Just in case you’re wondering, some of my favorite shades include:

  • MAC Β Up The Amp (shout out to Simone!)
  • Charming Violet 12 by Sephora
  • Nars Lipstick in Damage
  • Chanel Aqualimiere in Catalina

Anyone have any to add? I’m open to experimentation.

Chic isn’t a state of being or even a destination, chic is the journey you take on the way to something greater. ~Rachel
