Usually, when we think of a statement lip, we think red. But, if you’re looking to try something a little more unexpected, a vibrant shade of purple can be edgy and chic. While purple can be striking, it’s definitely a bit more challenging to pull off. Luckily, since this statement color has become increasingly more popular, there’s now a wide range of shades available in different undertones and intensity. It’s entirely up to you whether you want to go for a bold matte or a subtle gloss. Check out our round-up of plums, violets and lavenders
