I bought Violetta at least 2 years ago and it was seriously my most worn lipstick for a long time but with all the new purples that have come out lately it got pushed to the back burner for quite some time. Well I woke up one day, had my clothes picked out, then sad down to do my makeup. I did my eyes in all matte with my Blackbird Cosmetics shadows and just got this sudden desire to pair it with Violetta. Oh my am I so glad I did! I was really digging my overall aesthetic that day. Violetta just went amazingly well with the matte eye, purple jewelry, and black top.
The best thing about Violetta is that its a very wearable purple. It is definitely more pinkish purple than true purple and the slight shimmer just really makes it stand out when paired with a dark outfit. I always feel confident when I have this lipstick on and I really need to pull it out more this Fall.
As you can see it looks much more purple in the tube than it does on the lips. It is a beautiful pinkish purple with blue shimmer and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone.
For my eyes I used all Blackbird shadows with Figment on my lid, Gravity in my crease, Smudge as definition, and Vintage under my eye.
Also if you can see my earrings I made them by wire wrapping the pearls that came in the Fall Fortune Cookie Soap Box. They were just too cute to throw away so I decided to turn them into something useful!
tldr; GET MAC VIOLETTA. SERIOUSLY.
