The vampy lip trend is one that I have always seen and admired but not one that I had ever felt comfortable enough wearing-until this year.
I would be lying if I said I didn't stalk various pinterest boards and youtube gurus for ways to pull this look off. I was still unsure until the day a few weeks ago when I stumbled into an Ulta. I spend hours in this store y'all! Browsing all the displays, trying out nail colors, and swatching products.
I was over on the 'higher end' side and saw the Butter London Lippy Matte Lipstick in 'Ruby Muray'. I swatched it and fell in love but wasn't a fan of the $22 price tag. I swatched a few more and went back to that one. I even went as far as trying it on my lips.. snapped a selfie and was obsessed.
So, I wandered to the more affordable side to find a dupe. Low and behold. I found 4 great dupes all under $8.
Maybelline-Plum Perfect $7.49
L'oreal-Zoe's Red $7.99
Ulta-Basically Berry $3.00
Let me tell ya', I will certainly be rockin' a bold vampy lip this season!
