Purple has been my favorite color since I was like four. I wore a purple cotton jumpsuit to one of the very first summer parties my parents threw in our backyard. It was like summer Fridays at our house. And that jumpsuit was my favorite piece of clothing and I never wanted to take it off. Eww right!
Fast forward to today, even though I don’t wear this hue as much as I should to call it my favorite, she’s still my first love. I found the perfect purple artificial flowers that I keep on my living room table. My gym water bottle is a delicious plum shade just so it can trick me into believing that water tastes like some exotic purple fruit…or nah!
So when I mistakenly found this purple lip stain from Sephora and I fell in love. Not instantly though. I was a little salty because I went in to purchase another shade, deep berry. You wanna guess what happened? THEY DON’T MAKE IT ANYMORE (those capital letters represent me screaming).
After I had a mini North West temper tantrum in my head, I came to terms with the fact that I was already in the store which meant something was getting bought. Very few times can I walk into a Sephora and NOT buy something. I wasn’t gonna start a new tradition now.
So should you buy or nah
Buy! Simply because you can never have too many lipsticks, lip stains, or lip glosses. We need them all, ten times over. BUT, this purple is super purple which really alarmed me at first. I felt like the purple crayon in the box of 64. So I paired it with my favorite lip pencil, Nightmoth from MAC. Beauties, I promise you it solves all my color problems when it comes to applying lippy. Once I applied the pencil I fell head over heels in love with this purple. She works amazing against brown skin, although she’s gonna give you a great Lorde impersonation if you happen to be fair-skinned.
