Hope Girl Milky Balm Lipstick Soft Lavender

Want an easy to wear purple lipstick? Might I direct your attention to the Hope Girl Soft Lavender Milky Balm Lipstick because it is one of the easier to wear purple shades of lipsticks I own! I can’t really do purple lipstick well but outside of Etude House Belle Purple Rose Lips this adorable shade of lipstick is one of the easiest purple shades to wear.

Take a peek!

I was recently introduced to Hope Girl Milky Balm Lipstick when I purchased the Hope Girl Memebox! I enjoyed the formula quite a bit and was happy when I got a new shade, Soft Lavender, in the Memebox X Beauty Splurge with Lisa M. Pullano Box!

I remember being a bit worried about the Hope Girl Milky Balm Lipstick as “milky” typically translates as a unwearable cream finish in Korean lipsticks. But this one surprised me as it’s quite a delightful sheerer, balmy lipstick that has a buttery texture that’s lightly hydrating with a high sheen finish. I can get about four hours of wear from the lipstick and during that time it doesn’t migrate or feather. It comes housed in a plastic leopard print barrel giving it a chic, sexy look!

This is a full on lavender but it applies considerably less loud than what you see in the tube which makes it quite wearable for many skin tones. Honestly, it’s not a color I’d willingly select for myself but it actually does work for me and proves very, very wearable and dare I say pretty! So if you’ve been wanting to go purple-y with your lipstick but maybe you’ve been a bit too scared I’d highly suggest snagging Hope Girl Soft Lavender Milky Balm Lipstick! A great textured lipstick in a very wearable shade of purple.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I absolutely LOVE this color and the packaging is really cute. I have found in the past that this shade is a good one for me. WHich translates to you too because we tend to look good in the same shades.

    I used to have a Smashbox gloss in a similar color and used to layer it over a guava lip pencil – the combo was lucious. Maybe try a slightly coral gloss just to see what happens.

    This is great on you as it is though. I already have a few similar shades but if this was available in Ulta it would be in my bag anyway. πŸ˜€
