Anyone else who thinks wearing lipstick is such a hassle? I can’t really be bothered with checking my face every two minutes and am therefore more of a chapstick girl as far as my day-to-day make-up routine’s concerned (I collect Lipsmackers like a twelve-year old). But stepping out of your own comfort zone from time to time can be interesting, and seeing I really like a statement lip I decided to give it a go. The purple lip-trend was particularly appealing to me, since I’m head over heels in love with all purple and plum shades for winter.

I had a hard time finding the right shade of purple. I probably should’ve gone straight to MAC, but I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on a lipstick that I might wear one time. And so I stopped by the local Kruidvat and picked up the darkest, most purple-ish and least sparkly lipstick I could find. It’s by 2B and costs just under 5 euros. It’s still a bit too shimmery for my taste – I had this very matte shade in mind – but it’ll do. Wearing lipstick during the day made me feel all dresses up, so I paired this look with some casual Topshop gear and my converses (which you’ve seen before here). Are you a fan?
