Dragon Lipstick

Aloha Sprinklerinos,

I know, this is a short post but I just HAD to share this picture with you!


I don't quite know how, but I have reached 25 and never eaten a dragon fruit. I picked one up today and when I came home and sliced it in half, I literally gasped. It's soooo puurrdddy. This picture really does not do it enough justice. I google imaged it but the majority of snaps portray the flesh of the fruit as white, any clue?

Anyway, being the makeup and beauty obsessive that I am, the very first thing I thought was, "I need a lipstick in that colour!".

So there you have it, my dragon fruit cherry (see what I did there) has been popped, and I have a new lipstick hunt on my hands. Hooray!

I was going to finish up the post with a question, and I was going to write, "Have you ever tried a dragon fruit?", but then I realised you're probably not under 5 and don't want to be asked such lame-ass questions!

Toodlepip!

  5. I had dragon fruit a lot when I went to Malaysia earlier this year. I think it's deelish, as well as being a gorgeous colour! It's really tasty blended into a smoothie with banana and yoghurt too.

    Thanks for reminding me about dragon fruit. I want to go out and buy some to bring back memories of my travels :) xxx

  9. What a coincidence! The SortedFood boys just posted a video today which featured dragonfruit! I've tried it once and the flesh was white, I didn't know it could be dark pink. It was a few years ago though so I don't remember how it tasted. xx

  12. I tried Dragon Fruit years ago, after disovering it whilst browsing Tesco at about 4am (as you do!). I remember being fascinated and buying it. Mine was white inside though :( and didn't taste that good!

    I bought a lipstick recently that looked like the colour of your photo...but before I have even had chance to use it, I have gone and lost it in my room :( Must find!!

  21. I've drank dragonfruit in different juice blends, I really enjoyed them. Really rich magenta there, maybe Nars Funny Face or Nars Scarlet Empress? Good luck (and hope you enjoyed your fruit!)

  44. Hello Sprinkleofglitter.

    I have just been doing a little bit of stress free christmas shopping, with a few christmas tunes on. And whilst deciding which colour E.L.F. Studio Glossy Gloss my sister would most like. I saw this colour "dragon fruit". I had a little spark and thought I remember someone wanting this. Then it suddenly came to me. I am not sure it is the exact colour of a dragon fruit, but it made me chuckle. Here is the link, hope it makes you smile too.

  45. I've only tried the white ones, they do taste a bit plain but I love how fleshy they are! My grandma have them everyday, works for constipation problems! :)

  46. In my country is very common to eat this fruit and it's called Pitahaya, and it's white inside indeed. For older people it's commonly prepared with red wine and sugar and for breakfast it's eaten with lime and sugar, since it doesn´t have any particular flavor, I like it.
