There’s never a bad time to buy a new lipstick but fall is the absolutely perfect time for it. There’s something about the sun going down earlier and earlier, the air becoming brisk, the temperatures dropping, and the leaves turning that makes you realize a new season is truly upon us. Besides changing our clothing, we suddenly feel the need to change our makeup – especially our lips.
For me the perfect solution is Pur Minerals Lip Lure. I wrote about these in Top Ten Tuesday since they are my favorite lip product that I’ve tried for fall. Typically I like light shades but with the crispness in the air I’m suddenly craving real color. Just take a look at these swatches:
I was sent 3 of Pur Minerals Lip Lures in Belle, Graceful and Fancy and there’s something very special about them. While the current trend is to wear matte lipsticks, I don’t feel they are flattering to everyone. I have small lips that are lined and very few matte lipsticks look good on me. PUR MINERALS LIP LURE are a hydrating lip lacquer that not only looks good on my lips but feels good on them too. While they start out shiny they do dry down to an almost matte finish. Adding a clear or light lipgloss over them brings back any shine lost.
There are 5 shades of Lip Lure and all are perfect for the season ($22 each): Fiery Belle , Fiery , Graceful , and Mystic .
You start with a flocked sponge applicator that applies the lip lacquer evenly and softly. It takes a few clicks to get the color flowing. I don’t find that I need to use that much of the lip color to get the desired effect.
GRACEFUL is the softest shade of the 5. It’s a nude that has enough color to give your lips some life. This is the shade I’ve gotten the most compliments on.
BELLE is an ultra creamy soft peachy mauve shade on me. I know that sounds like a weird combination but I see both shades when I wear it. It’s not warm and it’s not a cool shade so it must be a neutral shade! Pur calls this a “natural beige with a hint of romance” but I only see the romance, I don’t see the beige.
FANCY is described as a lustrous mauve but it’s redder on me than a typical mauve.
The two other shades are Fiery described as a fierce siren and Mystic described as a ripe blackberry with a hint of raspberry. No lip product lasts on me for long but these last longer than most. Plus they leave a subtle stain behind so that it looks like I have some color left. They really are richly pigmented. More to love about these lovely hydrating Lip Lures is that there’s no scent or taste. Plus Pur Minerals is cruelty-free.
If it’s time to switch to fall shades (and you know it is) you need to consider Pur Minerals Lip Lure to give your life a little extra beauty. Which color is your favorite? — Marcia
