Ah.. Dark Vampy lips are so hot right now but I didn’t want to splurge on a super dark lippy just to chuck it aside after the trend fizzes out. For you girls who want to spot this super groovy lip trend, try a deep purple lip pencil instead. The one I chose is by NYX 808 Deep Purple and why I love it is because it’s good quality, affordable, easy to use and the color is very wearable.
I’ve tried sharpening the pencil to test for any broken bits and so far so good. Also, you can get a darker shade if you pencil over quite a few times and a lighter berry shade if you go over just once. In the first picture, I used it twice over, with an itsy bitsy bit of clear lip gloss over.
The one downside of the NYX Lip Liners are that they aren’t as creamy as MAC’s Lip Pencils but that’s good for darker shades because it reduces the risk of bleeding lip lines.
Hope I helped you save some money while still staying on trend
