Simply Lippy Challenge Day 132 | DuWop Private Lipstick in Shade Plum

Okay, there must be something in the air ladies because when I tried my first lipstick from DuWop a few weeks ago, I wasn’t all that impressed by it. It’s not that I didn’t like it or that it was bad per se, it just didn’t really wow me, and I wasn’t a fan of the shade.


However, that lipstick was part of a mini trio set that I bought, so I had two more shades to try out, and today I tried my second shade, Plum. Which as I’m sure you can guess, was a plum shade and what’s more, I really like it!

For me I would say it’s more brown toned than the berry tone you’d expect from a plum usually, but, the pigment was really good and the shade lovely nonetheless.


The formula as I mentioned in my last post, isn’t particularly creamy, but it does have a soft finish, and the colour glides on easily and blends very well on the lips.


I think the thing that struck me most with this shade today was the nice stain effect it gave. It’s not quite a full lip stain, but the colour really stayed put all day long, meaning I only had to reapply it once or twice.


Tonight I’m off out for dinner and drinks for a triple celebratory night, and wanted to obviously go a bit bolder on my makeup look compared to my usual go-to simple day application.


I decided to go with a dark brown eye and I think it really compliments the lipstick shade too, giving it a bolder impact for an evening look.


I still wouldn’t say I love this, but I was very impressed with both the pigment and colour, so it has definitely gone up in my estimation.

Hope you all have a lovely Friday whatever you’re up to!
