I was recently inspired by Tilly Devines choice of lip colour in the new Underbelly Razor, deep purples and deep reds applied in the style of the time. Being a red girl myself I thought I would venture out of my fashion shell and go for a deep purple.
Now to let you in on some news, I have NEVER worn a colour like this before, sure I have applied it to many people but, never on myself! I have always really stuck to what I know works best for me, scared of making a big makeup blunder. Knowing this about myself I really did not want to spend a lot of money on a lipstick that I may never wear again and one that just might sit at the bottom of my makeup bag for all eternity.
We recently had the chance to try out a couple of the new Kate Moss Lasting Finish lipstick for Rimmel London, which were pretty impressive. I knew there was a deep purple lipstick in the collection (number 11) so I headed out to Priceline to grab mine, and lucky I left when I did because there where only two left in the display! Other Tilly Devine makeup stalkers like me perhaps?
I applied the colour as soon as I got home, anxious to see if I could pull it off. Sadly, I don’t think I did, the colour itself though is Devine (pun intended, ha). It probably has a lot to do with the fact that I have never worn a colour like this on myself before, I am sure if I continue to wear it I will get used to it. I hope so because I just adore this look so much. Maybe I will wear it out at night first to ease my way into it.
When applying a lipstick colour like this one always go slowly, one little mistake is so noticeable and not always easy to remove. Stay inside your natural lip first and then decide if you want to take it a bit fuller. The great thing about a colour like this one is it will stand out and make a statement so make sure your eyeshadow is not that out there or you could end up looking like a scary clown.
