20 Black Women SLAYING Purple Lipstick

• Jun 5, 2016

Purple is arguably one of the most flattering shades on black women. While I would, of course, argue that all shades look great on us, purple just pops when against our skin. Trust me, your shade of brown has no bearing on your ability to wear a poppin’ purple lippie. I can almost guarantee there exists the perfect purple lipstick shade with your name on it.
If you don’t want to take my word for it take a look at the following bloggers for inspiration:

Most look great! Not a big fan of the matte ones; makes their lips look ashy.

It’s popping. Purple is arguably the best color on them. My favorite color is purple.
