Mystic

I remember there was a time that you couldn’t pay me to wear red lipstick or anything too bright. I was told that red lipstick was reserved for women of the night (don’t ask lol), and I always thought that I was too dark to wear bright colors. Fast forward to today and there is not a shade of lipstick that I won’t try. If it doesn’t look good alone I can usually make it work with a lip liner or gloss in a similar shade. I have embraced my dark skin and do not allow others to dictate what colors I should or shouldn’t wear, I simply wear what I want. A big part of The Glamorous Gleam is encouraging other Brown Skinned Beauties to do the same.

I have another lipstick to share with you guys today, Sleek MakeUp True Color Lipstick in Mystic. Mystic is a bright puple, almost neon. I have developed sort of a fixation with purple lipsticks and have quite the collection, I may just have to dedicate an entire post to it. I just love the way Mystic looks against my skin and the combination of color and texture makes it a really bold shade. I always get asked what I am wearing and get compliments… even from the fellas.

I have a few similar shades in my collection but no exact dupes. When I first received Mystic I cut my tube in half to put half in my MUA Kit since it was such a pretty shade, and now I am down to a tiny stub on my personal half. Since I have so many lipsticks I don’t replace most when they run out but this is a shade¬† that I’ll buy again and again. It’s too gorgeous!
