Trendspotting: Plum Pouts
|L - R Dior, Urban Decay, Revlon, Soap & Glory|
Hi everyone! It's Sascha from Sascha Sophia Beauty here to keep you posted on this season's hottest beauty trend - the plum lip! I know, plum verges on purple, and purple on the lips sounds scary, but I'm here to share four options that are anything but! From a glossy berry to vampy violet, I've got the spectrum covered, and at all price points to boot!
|Top - Bottom: Soap & Glory, Revlon, Urban Decay, Dior|
The first option and probably least intimidating comes from Soap & Glory. I wrote about my love for the brand's body products here, and recently shared some of my makeup purchases from the line (only available in the UK, sadly) on my YouTube channel, but the Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in Plum Jam can be nabbed at Sephora for $16. It boasts big time shine without the feel of a sticky gloss. The berry color is sheer and wearable for everyday.
If you're looking for a tad more color, Revlon's Colorburst Lip Butter in Sugar Plum has you covered. This super moisturizing formula is more opaque than the Soap & Glory option, but without being too dark. It's also the most affordable option at $6.49 from Target.
Upping the ante is Urban Decay's new Revolution Lipstick in Jilted. This vibrant blue-toned magenta is killer for a night out or just if you like to stand out! At $22, all of the Revolution lipsticks are well worth it with their crazy creamy texture and long wearing formula.
|Dior Addict Extreme in Black Tie|
If you really want to rock the dark plum look, though, you have to try Christian Dior's Dior Addict Extreme in Black Tie. A luxury item at $31, this dark berry shade will stain your kisser the perfect plum color in a wet-look texture that is completely unique.
Which plum will you be trying this Fall?
