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.

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.
