Sleek Pout Paints: Mixing the Wearable Purple Lip

Saturday, August 27, 2011

I have an ambivalent relationship with purple as a lip colour. Although purple is possibly my most favouritest colour ever, and I happy wear it in my clothes, bags, nails, eyes, and even cheeks (yes! I love my pinky-plummy blushes), I've never quite come around to purple as a lip colour.

Everytime the purple lip trend comes around (usually in Fall, sometimes in Spring), my brain starts going into overdrive. My right brain thinks, "Ooooh, purple! Me likey!" and my left brain thinks, "Eww, gross purple lips!" and "Oooohm purple!" and "Eww, gross!" end up battling in my brain. And I never actually end up buying any purple lip colour. I guess I've just never found the shade of purple that's just right for me.

So I decided that with the Sleek Makeup Pout Paints, I can actually mix my own wearable purple lip shade! I wanted a shade that was purple (as opposed to just pinky-plum, or pinky-lilac), but a nice kind of purple, not an "eww, she's wearing purple lips!" purple. And this was what I created, circled below. I'm quite proud of it, actually!

For this shade, I actually used all five colours of the Sleek Pout Paints that I had - although in all honesty I think i didn't have to. I was really just experimenting as I went along, so I think that if I ever wanted to re-create this shade again, I'd tweak the recipe a little. But for this colour, I used Peachy Keen (peachy-orange shade), Pin Up (true red), Peek-a-bloo (blue), Mauve Over (purple), Cloud 9 (white).

First, I used a small drop of Mauve Over, and tiny, tiny amounts of Pin Up and Peek-a-bloo. I also added in some Cloud 9, because adding Peek-a-bloo to any mixture tends to darken it. On hindsight, however, I'd probably remove Peek-a-bloo from the mix and use a little less of Cloud 9.


This was the interim resulting mixture that I got - a light purple shade that I didn't like. It was a little too purple to be wearable for me. So I decided to balance the shade out a little by adding a drop of Peachy Keen to warm up the shade, and Pin Up to redden the shade and make it more pink/red-based and less outrageously purple.

This is the final colour I acheived after adding Peachy Keen and Pin Up. I liked it, so I didn't want to change it anymore.

Next, I decided to add in a clear gloss to bulk up the mixture, and give it a nicer, less tacky and more gloss-like texture. If you read my previous mixing attempt with the Sleek Pout Paints, you'll know I had good luck with mixing in a clear gloss with shimmer, so here I did the same. As with the previous warm rose shade I created, for my wearable purple lip shade, I found that the Pout Paints were so pigmented that you can actually add quite a big dollop of clear gloss without sacrificing much pigmentation! The photo below shows how much clear shimmery gloss I added:

This is the final wearable purple lip colour that was acheived. It did require a bit of tweaking, and I didn't get the right colour in one shot, but otherwise, quite easily done!

Here's the wearable purple Pout Paint mix taking its place of pride in my Sleek Pout Paints self-made lip colours collection. I've circled the shade just created below.

And lastly, here's a swatch of my self-created purple on my lips! I'm absolutely loving it! It's purple, without being too unusual or shocking!

This just highlights my absolute love for the Sleek Makeup Pout Paints. I never used to like any purple lip colour, but with the Pout Paints, I was actually able to create a purple lip shade wearable enough for me to try it out! To me, that's a great use for the Pout Paints. If there's any lip colour you've seen on the runways or in stores which you've liked, but felt wasn't for you, the Sleek Pout Paints are a great way to mix up your very own version of the shade. Now, I have no excuse for not wearing a purple lip!
