The fall season is almost starting in the other side of the world, which means vampy colors are trendy again. Yassi Pressman went ahead and sported a dark violet lip, together with a strong brow and smokey eyes.
I don’t know about you, but seeing her look made me want to wear all my violet-toned lipsticks every day. Sorry, nude and red lipsticks, you might take a backseat for a bit. You too can try Yassi’s vampy lip with the products we listed below.
ColourPop Lippie Pencil in Leather
The key to applying darker shades is to line your lips first with the closest color. Leather is the perfect dark violet to use to give your lips a fuller look. You can also use it to do an ombre lip. Available online.
Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kit in Kourt K
Kourt K is a red-violet shade that you can wear in the day until the night as it’s long-wearing. You can either use the lip liner and liquid lipstick together, or just use the liner on its own. Available on Beauty MNL.
Make Up Forever Artist Rouge Creme in Dark Purple
This is a darker version of Kourt K and also has a more velvety finish. Switch your usual bold reds with this one on your next night out. Available at SM Megamall.
L’Oreal Paris Rouge Magique in Vin Equis
The Rouge Magique collection is rich in color and doesn’t look streaky on your lips unlike other darker lipsticks. Vin Equis reminds me of a dark grape color, which you can layer with a black lip liner for a Goth-like look. Available at Watson’s branches.
MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour in Oh, Lady
For a red-based option, pick up Oh, Lady which is a deep wine shade. It has a suede finish, making it comfortable to wear on the lips. Use this if you don’t feel like using the darker colors we mentioned above. Available at Rustan’s The Beauty Source.
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Exorcism
Described as a ripe blackberry color, Exorcism is a wearable choice for everyday wear. Give it more dimension with a darker lip liner. Available on Sephora PH.
