I thought it was about time I let you know about one of my all time favourite lipsticks – MAC Violetta. I have a real thing for purple lipsticks, but I don’t come across them very often, or at least the shades that catch my eye. So when I saw this was on sale at MAC (quite a long time ago now) I quickly snapped it up.
Violetta is an amplified cream shade, described as a ‘bright clean vibrant purple’. It is actually a MAC Pro shade so is not usually available in the standard stores but occasionally it is included in MAC’s seasonal collections – I bought this a few years ago at least and I know I’ve seen it on sale once since then. Hence I haven’t dared use it very much in case I can’t get my hands on a new one!
To me, this is the most perfect purple that I’ve found so far. It has a slight irridescence to it and is very smooth and comfortable to wear.
Do you own Violetta? I’d love to hear if you could recommend any other purple lipsticks?
I hope you enjoyed my review 🙂 xx
