Grape-y! Six Grape Colored Lipsticks in Different Intensities.

I love grape colored lippies. They are purple, often with a hint of pink or rose. The difference between typical deep plum colors and what I call “grape” colors is the lack of brown tones.

Grape shades can make the lips look whiter, and are far less likely to emphasize bruised tones in your skin.

BUT - the catch is not all of them are easy to wear. The most violet or blue-toned ones can make the skin look a bit sallow, so make sure you have some blush handy.

Lancome Lip Lover 357 - Beginners’ grape. This shade looks purple in the tube but sheers out to a fuchsia-toned tint with slight blue pearl shimmer

OCC Strumpet - A grape with a lot of rose; this one can be worn almost like a regular rose/pink shade, but there’s less red, so it looks a touch more edgy and hip

Make Up Store Magic - An old favorite of mine. I avoid frosty lipstick like the plague UNLESS it is a dark red or purple-toned shade. Because it just looks wicked-cool.

Givenchy Gloss Interdit 15 - this is a deep plum with tons of silver sparks. The texture is semi-sheer, and I do think the best way to wear it is to layer this over a coat of dark lipliner. You get incredible twinkling lacquered lips.

Sephora Bewitch Me - This is the quintessential dark purple toned lip. It has a very blue-toned violet undertone so be careful to add a bit of pink blush if you have yellow-based skin like me. Otherwise you can look sallow in comparison.

Lime Crime Kaleidoscope - This thick sticky gloss is very high-maintenance, but gosh it is pretty. Not for wallflowers! This is a straight violet with a dramatic blue pearl. Wear it if you’re ready to be stared at.

This honestly made me tear up. Imagining how great he must have felt that his planned worked and choosing that risk paid off.
I also feel like him and the model have such good chemistry, they’re always so kind and loving to one another.

Holy shit what did he do?? That’s rad as hell!

Since the runway was going to have simulated rain, he wanted to make the outfit become colorful because of it rather than deflect it. He sewed dye into the seams and once the rain hit it the dye ran! Very simple but super effective. He was one of the two winners of that challenge.

Absolutely brilliant. Holy shit.

Oh my god I love project runway so much
