Would you wear purple lipstick?


I generally shy away from purples for lips but with all the buzz around Radiant Orchid this year, I’m trying out more shades from this end of the spectrum! My current favorite is NYX Slim lip pencil in Purple Rain topped with a sheer pink gloss (worn below) like NYX Mega Shine lip gloss in Tea Rose. I quite like this combination – it looks bold but not unflattering!

What is your take on purple lipstick? Do you ever sport purple lips?

    This color looks good on you but I really can’t wear purple color on my lips though my mom loves sporting light purple color on her lips.

    I love purple lipsticks but the skin has to be clear otherwise it only highlights the blemishes
