Bright lipstick fever takes a Violet turn!

Hello Everyone

Hope you all are having a great week so far. 

All those who are hooked up with me for sometime, know that I am going through a bright lipstick phase right now. Anything that's bright and lifts the mood up and is a lipstick/ lipgloss, I would buy it. It took a Violet turn when I went to MAC Store some time back and started trying some purple lipsticks/ lipglosses... and ended up picking this lovely violet lipstick called Up The Amp and this violet plushglass lipgloss called Butterfly Dream from the Vera Colletion, which sadly is Limited Edition. 

MAC describes Up The Amp as Lavender Violet which is a very right description of the shade. This lipstick has slight blue undertones. Butterfly Dream is a sheer shimmery lilacy violet shade with bluish tealish violet shimmer particles, that are very very fine.

Up The Amp lipstick is a flat violet color, but, when paired with Butterfly Dream, the multicolored shimmer particles in it gives the lipstick a multidimensional look and finish. 

I will review these products separately as I have to really try these products to write a review. I tried this lip combo today and really liked it and thought why not share with you all. 

So, here are the pictures, swatches and pictures of me wearing this lip combo: 

Bottom: Butterfly Dream, Top: Up The Amp

Bottom: Butterfly Dream, Middle: Up The Amp, Top: Combo
Lip combo paired with brown smokey eyes and neutral blush

Paired with soft neutral eyes and pink blush
Personally, I liked it more with neutral eyes and pink blush. But, I posted both the pictures to give you a better idea of the lip combo, as to how it would look with different eye makeup and blushes. 

I hope you all liked the lip combo and the lip combo on me. Do let me know in the comments below, and  also, don't forget to tell me which look you liked more. 

Have a great rest of the week ahead. I know, it's Friday tomorrow, but, my week ends only on Saturday.

  1. Wow!it looks so pretty!i am completely into lipsticks these days but violet is one color I hv not tried yet..up the amp looks very pretty..I think I'll swatch it in store:)

  2. The lip gloss looks purple in the tube! But its a pretty shade otherwise.

  3. I'm really hesitant about using violet shades on myself.

  4. @ Giggle: Thanks a lot. Yeah, you should try it. :D

    @ ATP: Yes it looks purple in the tube because of multicolor shimmer in it. However, on lips it's very sheer.
