Mac Violetta – Purple Is My New Thing

Hey you guys,

I’m back with another Mac lipstick review. Who would’ve guessed? If you happen to follow me on Instagram or Twitter you might have already seen that a little while ago I got Mac’s Violetta thanks to the Back2Mac program. I had finally gotten enough empty products to return and I ended up going for Violetta because I knew that it wasn’t a color I’d normally go for. Those of you who have been fooling my blog for a while know how obsessed I am with lip products and I love experimenting with crazy colors. However, purple is one color I’ve always kind of stayed clear of so far. I can’t even really explain why but for some reason I was really unsure of whether it would suit me. IMG_8403

I’ve ben eyeing up Violetta for the longest time but was never brave enough to go for it. Since you can chose a free lipsticks with the Back 2 Mac program I figured this would be my one chance to finally get it and I’m so glad I took it. Violetta is just the most beautiful vibrant blue-based purple with a slight frosty shimmer to it. It has an Amplified formula, which I absolutely love as it’s quite opaque and applies so smoothly. It hardly bleeds and it doesn’t feel drying at all. What more could you want?

Now I’m not going to lie, when I first saw the color in the bullet I found it to be a bit scary just because I never wear purple lipsticks. But as soon as I applied it on my lips I basically fell in love. The color itself looked a lot different on me than I first though it would. It wasn’t as dark and even though it is very vibrant it’s not as loud and in your face as I expected it to be. The best thing about this lipstick, in my opinion, is that when it starts fading after a few hours it fades evenly to a beautiful plum pink stain.

As you can guess from my review I really do love this lipstick. The formula is amazing and I’m seriously obsessed with this color. If you’re brave enough to go for a purple lipstick this is one you should try!

As always I hope you enjoyed reading!
Thanks and much love,

Sophie
