Purple People Eater


The other night while doing what I do best cough cough… [ online shopping ] with my best babe… I noticed that all of the models were sporting purple lipstick. I asked, “Is purple the new black?” Her response, “Duh!”


I was instantly smitten with this shade. Yes, I know that Radiant Orchid is Pantone’s color of the year for 2014… but what I did not know was how freaking amaze it would look on the lips. It’s also insanely easy to pull off, you just have to find the right hue for you!


So naturally, I ran to the store and picked up a couple shades of purple lipstick when I realized I wanted to start rocking this trend like, yesterday. I’ve come up with a pretty epic purple lip concoction which consists of Benefit’s “Lolli Tint” as a base. This is hands down my favorite lip and cheek stain. Ever. I top it off with not one, but two shades of lipstick… Revlon’s “Berry Haute” #660 & “Violet Frenzy” #027… the result, the PERFECT purple lip, aka one of my FAVE trends for 2014.

Here are some of my other pics for the perfect purple lip ;)
