Looking to paint your pout with a vibrant lip color this winter? May we suggest a plum lipstick? This rich color is totally luxe and serves as the perfect way to branch out and experiment with purple lipstick, not to mention there are plenty of variations of the shade, so there’s something fit for every occasion. Speaking of, allow us to share a few of our favorites! Read on for seven gorgeous plum lipstick shades that are worthy of your next makeup look.
PLUM LIPSTICK SHADE #1: TRUE PLUM
It’s only right we start off with a classic plum hue, right? Color your pout with a deep purple shade with notes of red. To get the look, swipe on the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Makeup Luminous Hydrating Lipstick + Nourishing Serum in Plum Wine, which is infused with a nourishing serum and pro-vitamin B5 and offers long-lasting hydration.
PLUM LIPSTICK SHADE #2: SHEER PLUM
Don’t want a bold plum lip? If you prefer to keep things on the subtler side, a sheer plum lip color is the perfect way to try on the trend. The L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Plump and Shine Lipstick, Sheer Lipstick in Wild Fig Plump will coat your lips in a subtle flush of color, leaving them feeling soft, glossy, and visibly plumped. One application of this plumping lipstick delivers lasting shine, all-day moisture, and a cooling, tingling feel.
PLUM LIPSTICK SHADE #3: METALLIC PLUM
You know how the saying goes: leave a little sparkle wherever you go. Well, why not do just that by smoothing on a sparkling metallic plum lipstick? The L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature Lightweight Matte Colored Ink, High Pigment in I Voodoo has a long-lasting formula that delivers high impact color with a metallic, glitter finish. Pucker up!
PLUM LIPSTICK SHADE #4: MUTED PLUM
A muted plum shade is particularly fitting for the cold, winter months, providing a faded take on the traditional plum lip. Though not as vibrant, we promise it’s just as striking! Give the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Lipstick in Plum Bum a try, which has a full-coverage, matte formula that feels light for all-day comfort.
PLUM LIPSTICK SHADE #5: GLOSSY PLUM
Bring on a high-shine finish! Glossy lips are all the rage as of late, which is why we’re practically fangirling over glossy plum lipstick. Paint your pout with the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in Gleaming Plum to bring the look to life. This ultra-rich, ultra-radiant plum lipstick has a glossy finish for comfortable wear—never sticky. In just one stroke, experience a hydrating and lasting shine effect coupled with rich color pay-off.
PLUM LIPSTICK SHADE #6: BRIGHT PLUM
Who says colder temperatures have to mean putting bright lip colors on the back burner? On the contrary, we love the idea of brightening up your makeup look by topping your lips with a coat of bright plum lipstick. We particularly love how this shade pops against olive and deep skin tones. To give the trend a try, swipe on the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Matte Lip Crayon, Lasting Wear, Smudge Resistant in No Fig Deal. This matte lip crayon will color your lips with saturated color—not to mention its mechanical tip makes application easy for one-swipe coverage on the go.
PLUM LIPSTICK SHADE #7: MATTE PLUM
Matte lipstick will always hold a special place in our hearts, and matte plum lipstick is no exception. Consider pairing one with a shimmery eyeshadow look to balance out your finishes. Just make sure you wear a matte lip color with a comfortable, long-wear formula, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Les Macarons Scented Liquid Lipstick in Blackcurrant Crush. This matte plum liquid lipstick is infused with notes of almond, vanilla, and cream for a mouthwatering scent that’ll take your plum lip to the next level.
