MAC Violetta Lipstick Review & Swatches

MAC Violetta Lipstick Review & Swatches

Hi Guys!

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

    That is such a gorgeous colour and looks fab on you. I do love MAC lipsticks, I tend to go for more nudes and pinks, but just recently got MAC’s Plumful which I love!

    I will have to try this one when i’m next at the MAC counter – thanks for sharing 🙂

    That looks amazing on you. Wouldn’t suit me but is so your colour.

    That is such a gorgeous colour! I’d be saving that one too! Have you tried the Heroine shade that has been rereleased onto the permanent line? 🙂 That looks another amazing shade!

    In my profile pic is the Burgundy shade from YSL. I love it. It is really dark though, so I prefer to apply with a lip brush, blot and re-apply (I think putting it directly on the lips is a little too dark for me)!
