Now that I’ve settled into work and am finding my way around everything, I’m getting more comfortable wearing some stronger lipstick shades for my challenge. Today’s lippy choice is a great example of that and the shade that is just to die for.
I know dark brown shades aren’t everyone’s preference, but I do have a soft spot for a very dark lip hence why this one was a perfect choice for me.
The shade, Club Hopper, is one of the NYX liquid suede lipsticks and I have to say, was very nice to wear. It has quite a wet formula so at first I was dubious about how it would set, but once it dries in, it leaves a soft matte finish.
In comparison to other liquid mattes, the drying time is a bit longer with this, and you do have to layer it up to achieve an opaque colour as it slightly drags on application. Having said that though, once it does dry, the feel and finish are both very nice.
I love pairing a very dark lip with a soft makeup look and simple lick of eyeliner; it’s definitely one of my favourite looks to wear especially with this shade. If I wasn’t in work I may have gone with a more winged flick, but I’ll just have to try that out another time!
What do you think about very dark shades like this? Would you wear them? Let me know by commenting below, I love hearing your thoughts!
