I totally get it if you’re kinda freaked out about the idea of purple lip gloss. I was too. I used to think, gaudy much? But then I slipped one on and completely changed my tune.
The right lavender can look très flattering and still “natural with a kick.”
One to consider: Korres Lip Butter Glaze in Crocus ($14), a sheer, creamy lavender with a whisper of shine.
If you haven’t tried the Lip Butter Glazes yet, give ‘em a kiss when you can. I think Korres did a really good job on these. They’re total A+ products.
The one I’m wearing tonight, Crocus, starts as a highly pigmented, can’t-miss color, but it slowly wears down to a soft lavender pink.
I like pairing it with smokey eyes or cat liner looks because, while it packs a punch, it doesn’t compete too much with the rest of the look.
If you decide to give Crocus or another lavender gloss a try (and I hope you do), please let me know how it goes.
Now, onward to the weekend! I hope you’re doing something fun.
Are you planning to watch any of the Olympics? That’s pretty much my game plan for this weekend — to watch the Olympics, do some furniture hunting, and go on a dinner date with El Hub.
Oh, and there’s got to be some housecleaning squeezed in there somewhere… Bluh.
