Yesss, purples again. I know, I know…they are the source of my beauty inspiration these days. Last week I did purples on the eyes and this time I took it back to the lips. Now I’m no stranger to lavender lips. Y’all have seen me in them here
. To say I’m a fan of purple lips is an understatement. I flippin’ love them!
MAC Violetta is not a newbie to MAC Pro. It’s been awhile for a minute and every time I stop by the store it is staring me in the face and calling my name. I’m not kidding. This color is fierce.
Violetta is all kinds of dopeness. I knew it would create a bangin’ purple lip. MAC defining it as a bright clean violet purple is so right on.
I even decided to add another lip liner to the 4 or so I have. I love my Nightmoth but it can be a little too dark. Even with a light hand, it can dramatically change the look of your lipstick.
Vino is a lot more forgiving.
Vino is the bottom line. HUGE difference, right? So..I went ahead and got to work.
And here’s what I ended up with…
Eh. I mean, I like it but I needed some thing else. Something that would really kick the purple up a notch.
And I found it.
Now that’s what I’m talkin’ about. Make Up For Ever’s Glossy Full Couleur is perfect for topping off a purple look. By itself it isn’t too pigmented but when layering…oh wowsers!
And I should mention that this gloss is pretty minty and uh…tasty.
Purple-y glossy goodness!
Purple lips make me so happy!
I so don’t need any more purple lipsticks. I’m done.
Have an awesome weekend!!!
