Gorgeous Plum Lips – from the Drugstore


I love a good dark, vampy lip, but this look can be hard to pull off  throughout a 10 hour day at school. On my most recent trip to the drugstore I wanted to pick up a darker, fall lip color that is also daytime appropriate. What I wound up choosing is to me, the perfect plum-berry lipstick/gloss combination that is great for any time, day or night!

Covergirl Jumbo Gloss Balm in Plum Twist: I have been loving giant lip crayons lately – and this one imparts plenty of moisture and sheer color that is buildable. For this lip look I will apply two layers of this color for a medium-berry tint.

Almay Liquid Lip Balm in Just Plum: I apply a layer of this gloss over top of Plum Twist for an even juicier pout! This product is extremely moisturizing, not at all sticky, and overall really comfortable to wear. I also love its slight sugary scent!

    Those colors look really nice. I just started getting into dark lip colors too! I’ve been debating buying some of the Almay liquid lip balms. I’d love to see a review on it, if you have the time 🙂

    I have an Almay Liquid Lip Balm in ‘Cantaloupe’ and I absolutely adore it! The moisturization it provides blows my mind!
