Glossy Plum Lip

Thursday, 12 February 2015

Who does not love a good plum lip? A glossy one as well! When everyone around me tends to stick to mattes, I'm the only one who reaches out to textures that give my lips volume. To me, a little shine on the lips makes them look plumped, and they're more suitable for everyday. Plus they are not as high maintenance as matte lip products which makes touching up a lot quicker! Here are two affordable plum lip products I have been loving...

Bourjois Color Boost in 06 Plum Russian

It's a lip crayon product from Bourjois that claims to be waterproof, lasts up to 10 hours, comfortable and hydrating. I agree on the comfortable and hydrating part, but I haven't worn it for 10 hours so I can't say anything about that part and I'm not sure if it's really waterproof. You can wear it very sheer or build up to get more pigment. I like to use it on the center of my lips the way Koreans wear their lip tints. This one has more red than the other one.

 Maybelline Lip Polish in Glam 6

Or Maybelline Color Elixir if you are in the UK. This one is my favourite out of the two. It's a deep plum and is very pigmented. The color is right up my alley. One swipe and it's opaque, so if you want something sheer, go for the Bourjois one. It's very comfortable on the lips and it leaves a stain. The applicator hugs the lip perfectly. The effect it gives is similar to what you get from higher end brands. It makes your lips look a lot fuller, 3D and luxurious. I don't have anything bad to say about this product. I love, love, LOVE it!

Much love.
