In the ultimate attempt to step out of my comfort zone, I bought a purple lipstick from Colourpop called and Grind. I finally had enough courage to wear it out and here is the result.
It’s… actually not bad? It’s definitely purple, but it doesn’t seem to be as strange as I thought it would be. It actually looks like a fun color! The finish is very matte, and perhaps a little drying.
I really thought it would be a lot lighter than this, considering the arm swatch I posted earlier.
The strange thing is, it looks quite pink when I took a shot in the sun. Perhaps it’s the shadow/lighting aspect?
In conclusion, purple lips aren’t such a strange or bad thing!
