Visions Of Violet Dancing In My Head

Yup. I’m having colour cravings again!! And this time it’s a lipstick colour that I’ve REALLY never worn before, Violet!

Have you noticed all the violet lipsticks lately too? MAC Mineralized has one, the new NARS Fall
2013 collection has one-it seems that every brand is coming out with one! I guess that’s partly the reason I’m wanting one so badly now! Well that and because I really don’t have any violet lipsticks in my stash at the momento, and also because the colour is so bright and pretty! So the violet hunt begins! I’ll say this, it’s a darn good thing I’m not near a Tom Ford counter because HELLO GORGEOUS GET ON MY LIPS!

Do you have a great violet lipstick that I should check out? What colours are you craving at the moment?

    I LOVE purple lips, which is a bit odd because I don’t really love purple as a whole. The original MAC Lavender Whip is one of my all time favourites and Covergirl Lip Perfection in Divine is great too.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Oooh! Thanks for the recs Bailey! I’ll look for that CoverGIrl one, as I think that MAC one isn’t around anymore, right?

      • Bailey_AlltheWords

        Not really… they re-promoted it in a recent collection (it likely sold out) but it ended up not being the same shade. The purple Revlon Lip Butter- Cupcake ( I think…) is similar too though.

      • TracyBeautyReflections

        Ok cool thanks Bailey! I’ll look for that one too!

  • oooh YSL. Ooooh, Bite! The MAC Narcissus gloss is kind of violet and kind of pink…it’s like my gateway violet πŸ˜› I like violet a lot on lips too, even though I’m not in love with it as an eye shade.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      I will check that gloss out thanks! Yeah, I’m not crazy about it on the eyes either, although I do notice when I wear violet eyeshadows, the inner part of my eye that’s green REALLY stands out. It’s kind of cool. πŸ™‚

  • Vanessa

    Yes!!! Yes!!! I love violet lips, and I will look forward to seeing what you find.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      πŸ™‚ I will do my best! The hunt is ON!

  • I love violet! It’s not an everyday colour or anything, but it’s one of my favourites. One of my favourites is Revlon Va Va Violet, which is quite dark, but my absolute favourite lipstick of all time (big call, I know) is Madison Mauve from Maybelline’s Color Sensational range. It’s a plummy purple with greenish shimmer. So flattering and just beautiful.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Ooooh! I will look into those too so thanks Olgie! I like the sounds of that one with the green in it a lot!

  • Jenny W

    I think violet would look amazing on you- if anyone could pull it off it would have to be you Trace. That deep violet from Tom Ford looks seriously beautiful.

  • Liz

    We totally have the same craving because this violet lipstick thing was partially why I picked up that BECCA set from Winners. GET THE TOM FORD. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      LOL hahahaha! I want that on SO BAD. I might have to beg someone in the US for it! πŸ™‚

  • I got you girl! I’m seeing it everywhere and I must have! I know for a fact that the YSL is Hawt! Can’t wait to see what u pick up. You are so on! Haha

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Hahaha you are so cute haha! I keep looking for that YSL one, but it’s never at my Sephora! I have to check another one on the other end of the city for it grrr…I hate driving haha!

  • I’ve only got one purple lip product and it’s from Fyrinnae – I think the shade is called Shangri-La? But, I’ve also heard MAC Up the Amp or it’s drugstore dupe Revlon Superlustrous in Berry Haute are pretty cool!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks Monica! I will look into those!

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    Hahaha it does look edible, hey? πŸ˜‰

  • Icaria

    Oooh I can’t wait to see which you go for, it’ll look amazing on you with your hair. I’m in limbo as far a lip color is concerned atm. Since I don’t know what I want I stick with super neutral shades. *iz boring* I know. πŸ™

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    πŸ™‚ It’s everywhere lately! Seems like every collection has one. I’m going to look today!

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    Hahahaha then you need to do a violet post for me so I can see the ones you have!

  • That TF is a BEAUT! Cannot wait to see you rocking some violet lips. With your new hair, it’s going to be awesome!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      πŸ™‚ I hope so! Or it could look HORRIBLY wrong LOL.

  • Emma Bovary

    I think I do have a violet lippy or two, will have to dive into my stash and see what I pull out!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Please do and show them! πŸ™‚ I’d love to see them!

  • OMG Tracy! You MUST treat yourself to a violet lipstick! I absolutely love the shade – MAC have a few good shades too: Rebel which is a berry-violet and Heroine which is more of a true violet – I don’t own Heroine but it’s on my wishlist. Be fierce!!!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      I am Vita! I’d love Heroine-but isn’t that a LE one? I’ll have to look!

  • Joyce (bronzer bunny)

    i love tom ford violet fatale!
