Purple lips now. Purple Lips forever! Get more fun out of your look with my favorite purple lipsticks.
Purple lipstick is my FAVORITE! It’s sexy, it’s dramatic, + it gets people talking; all my favorite things. In the spring/summer red and berry tones are perfect for the sunshine, but as soon as I feel the temperature drop I’m ready to break out the dark, wicked hues. Many people are afraid of making such a bold statement, but I promise there’s a purple lipstick out there for everyone. My favorites are listed below + yal know I like to ball on a budget, so none of them will break the bank.
LA Girls Matte Pigment Gloss in Black Current
This is my go-to when I’m feeling myself. It’s a liquid to matte that goes on super pigmented and dries fast. I love that the brush is flat on both sides with a rounded top allowing for smooth application and sharp lines. The only con would have to be how dry my lips feel the longer I wear it. $6
Ulta Matte Lip Cream in Allusive
To me, this is more liquid to matte instead of cream to matte. It’s not as thin as the LA Girl brand, but I’ve used thicker brands. I love how pigmented this shade is. It’s very buildable and doesn’t dry too quick which allows for easy cleanup. $9
Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream
This is ULTRA creamy, which at times makes it hard to spread evenly and build on, but pack a good amount of color. The brush is angled so it allows for great points and precision. It stays creamy all day which is great for a matte purple lipstick. $6
Black Radiance Perfect Tone Lip Color in Plum Orchid
This hue is super true. The first coat goes on very purple and gets more intense with each application. It’s very hydrating and smooth. It’s an all around great lippie and it only costs $1.99.
Ruby Kisses Matte in Purple Affair
This is another great true purple. It’s a matte stick so it’s a little tough to go on. I always have to exfoliate and moisturize before application. I absolutely love how long this lipstick lasts and how much color you get with only one application. $2.99
Black Radiance Perfect Tone Lip Gloss in Blackberry
This is a true gloss so it is really thick and sticky. The hue is a really dark purple, but it doesn’t go on too even. I like to pair a black lip liner wit this to add a touch more darkness. The trick with keeping full coverage is not to spread or rub your lips too much while applying. $2.99
There you have it boos all my favorites, and none of them cost more than $10 so they’re def budget friendly enough to give a try. All my favorite baes rock a purple lip in the chilly seasons too so don’t be left out!
