I LOVE bright lipstick, especially deep purple shades. There aren't usually too many of them per brand, either. So when I saw Violetta from MAC I thought, "Wow! A purple that I don't already have". I ordered it online and hoped that I'd like it. I was thrilled when I took the cap off. It's BEAUTIFUL. It's almost too pretty to use!
I swiped a sample on my hand below, and put some on my lips as well. It is bright but sheer, as you can see from how it looks on my lips. I will build it to a more opaque color, but it's nice that it's sheer for those who don't want too much color. Perfect!!
Have a great day, everyone!
