My New Vampy Lip Combo

bars-train-bleu-maybelline-vision-in-violetSo dark lips are the thing this fall/winter and pretty much every fall/winter! I decided to try to venture into some more vampy lip colors to keep up with this trend. Keep reading to see what combination I came up with!

During the Sephora VIB Sale, I decided to pick up another Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Train Bleu. I had seen swatches of the color and knew that I loved the formula of these pencils so I gave it a shot at 20% off.

Nars Train Bleu applied lightly

In the pictrue above I applied Train Bleu pretty lightly, but the color can be built up and when it is, it is much darker.

To amp up the purple in this look, I applied the Maybelline Color Elixir in Vision in Violet (which is extremely pigmented) on top of Train Bleu. I’m very happy with the end look. Now I just have to work up the nerve to wear it outside of the house! 🙂

Are you into the vampy lip trend? If so, what’s your favorite lipstick and/or gloss for it?
