Purple is back with a vengeance! I love the way tanned skin and a lavender lip look together. It can be soft and sweet with a touch of pink on your cheeks and nothing on your eyes but mascara - or it can be sexy and seductive with contoured cheekbones and a dark cat eye lash line and falsies. Here are three of my favorite FABulous and fierce purple pouts:
Benefit's The Gloss in Kiss Me is a sheer fuchsia color that perfectly compliments a purple lipstick. Buy it here for $14.
Pair it with Benefit's Shang-ri-la Sheer Lipstick in Picked Up In Paradise. If you hurry, you can bid on it and save. The current offer on e-bay is for $8.99
Two more great combos, so read more
The next lavender combo I love is from Laura Mercier. Try her Lipstick Lip Shimmer in Amethyst, $20.
Match it with the perfect Gloss Glace in Violet for shine and enhancement. I am on my third tube of this gloss. I wear it over anything pink or purple.
Since we all have the brands we love, here's another purple classic. MAC's lipstick in Fluid is back "in" again. $14
Dab a little of Bobbi Brown's Lip Tint in Lilly (second from left) $16 in the center of your lower lip for some seriously luscious lilac shine!
