Lipstick Love | The Lip Bar Lipstick in Purple Rain

Have you ever had a lipstick that was just perfect for ANY occasion? I mean, you could be going out for groceries, going out for lunch, or even meeting up with a friend, and that one lipstick stays front and center for the choosing? I don't know about you, but I have a few of those lipsticks in my makeup bag. And for the longest time, creamy purple lipsticks seem to always go high on my everyday lipstick list. 

Don't get me wrong: I love my nudes, hot pinks, and my deep berries (especially during the fall). But there's something about one purple lipstick in particular that makes me feel like my best flirty and feisty self. And that lipstick is none other than The Lip Bar lipstick in Purple Rain. This lipstick has been holding a secured spot in my makeup bag for a minute and is definitely an instant repurchase when I run out. Peep the details below to learn why I keep running back to her after the jump.

While some may get turned off by the "neon" description, believing it to be a color too intense for everyday wear, Purple Rain is quite the opposite. The shade is such a soft and flattering purple, I believe it to complement anyone who rocks it.

Purple Rain also delivers when it comes to pigment. It takes about two swipes to get a consistent opacity on your lips. The first application gives a smooth splash of color, which means you might not even need to apply a second application. But because I apply my lipstick around the perimeter of my lips as if it were a liner first, I believe that second swipe keeps the color evenly applied. 

Now when I tell you this lipstick has such a smooth, consistent application, please believe me! While other lipsticks have been to known to dry down uncomfortably on the lips, Purple Rain does not. She settles beautifully on the lips and dare I say it even moisturizes! Formulated (paraben-free) with castor seed and avocado oils, this lippie not only looks pretty, she works double time to keep your lips soft + smooth. Expect her to rock with you for about 2.5-3 hours without even having to reapply!

Not only does Purple Rain wear well on the lips, she makes me feel fun + flirty when I wear her. She's friendly. She dares a smile to pull at your lips when people compliment you on your lipstick choice. And even when I feel like she's losing her luster through my meals and sips of coffee, just reapplying a dab in the middle of my lips makes her as good as new. 

So if you're looking for a versatile lipstick that shows up, plays fair, and makes your lips feel like a dream, be sure to purchase Purple Rain. All that I ask in return is that you make sure your lips are exfoliated first to ensure she lasts longer and presents better. Be good to her and she will be good to you! Trust me, she has done great by me over the years!
