It seems as if spring is finally in full force! We’ve finally been able to shake the cold here in Michigan with some nice, sunny 60 degree days but I’ve still been in a vampy lip mood lately. I guess I’m just weird like that!
In case you’d like to be weird with me, I invite you try the NYX Dahlia High Voltage Lipstick. It’s about $6 at Ulta probably one of the most smokin’ hot vampy lipsticks I’ve ever seen. Dahlia is deep blackened eggplant with a slight red undertone and a creamy satin finish. It pulls almost black but you can definitely see the hint of purple which makes it pretty darn unique. I have quite a few vampy purples in my stash but nothing quite like Dahlia.
If you like your vampy lippies matte then you can probably skip right along ’cause Dahlia sports lots of sheen and a very emollient creamy texture. It glides across the lips like butter with full coverage in a single swipe and a touch of moisture. I didn’t experience any settling but I was a bit worried about the bleeding due to the color and texture. However, Dahlia held up pretty well–around 4-5 hours–without migrating all over my face. Just some very minor bleeding. Of course, using a lip liner (all over) or a primer will help lock things in place.
