FOTD #2: A Torrid Affair

Don't tell Kiwi, but I've been having an affair... with purple lipsticks. I don't really understand all of this whirlwind romance stuff with purple, however, they really have swept me off my feet. Today's look is featuring MAC's Violetta lipstick, which is available only through the Pro store. Violetta is a sultry temptress with an impish sweetness, and although she looks like she'll eat you up at first, she's a purring pussycat on your knee by the time you've recovered from the shock.

Violetta, then, looks more darkened fuchsia than scary purple on me, but it's still loud enough so as to hustle me into a bit of cool-toned unobtrusiveness on the eyes so I don't look too outlandish/old lady who still thinks she's got it.

Products used:
  • NARS Sheer Matte
  • YSL Touche Eclat
  • Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer
  • Kryolan Anti-Shine Powder
  • MAC Blush Ombre in Azalea Blossom
  • MAC Paintpot in Bare Study

  • Shiseido Fine Eyeliner
  • MAC Greasepaint Stick in Zinc Zone
  • Diorshow Extase Mascara
  • MAC lipstick in Violetta

As I am hilariously terrible at taking photos and anything in general artistic, there is once again no photo of the eye look, and instead, two photos of the same basic angle, but different sides of my face. Rest assured, it wasn't that fabulous, but for next time I'm definitely going to work on my skillz.



  1. You look stunning and the lipstick looks amazing! I love bright lip colours :)


  2. this looks AMAZING on you! I've added this lipstick to my wish list now.

  3. You look fabulous! Beautiful shades too! :) xx

  4. Really suits you Cami! Loving your blog and Youtube vids :D

  5. What's your opinion on Sheer Matte? I love this lip colour on you, I'm on the hunt for the perfect deepish purple, but no place seems to make one.

  6. Gorgeous, the lipstick really suits your complexion. xx

  7. @Discombobulatedd Thank you love :) I'm really getting into bright lip colours right now! I'm torn though, I wore my favourite red for the first time in months yesterday night and I miss it now! xx

    @Lipstick Rules You must get it! It's awesome! I can't wait to get a purple lip liner to make it pop even more!

    @Laura Thank you lovely :) xxx

  8. @scouselovesmakeup Thank you lovely lady :) xxx

    @L.F Thank you! It's so lovely to get a comment like that :)

    @Simone I'm still not sure! I like the finish but it doesn't seem to last long on me and makes me oily :( I'm hoping it's going to grow on me, it probably will :) Definitely try Violetta, the formula is Amplified so it's really creamy and pigmented. If you don't live near MAC Pro then I can easily pick you one up :) xxx

    @Jo Thank you lovely :) xx

  9. You look foxy ^^ it's so much fun to try out looks/colours we wouldn't usually wear :)

  10. @Jade Thank you :) I like wearing scary new lipsticks - it's like being a different character for a day :) Gives me a new boost of confidence too!
