vying for my love

oh (MAC) Violetta lipstick, how I love thee!
Vivid, violet, with a velvety finish, it is a vivacious colour that just vies for my love.
As the autumnal chill beckons, I have cast aside the pastel pinks and have opted for the powerful purples and bewitching berry lipsticks for an enchanting and pigmented pout!
What is you favourite wintertime lipstick?

    Geez, why does statement makeup suit you so much? Beaut.

    I've been itching to crack out a statement lippie this week, I think tomorrow will be the day! x

    This looks gorgeous on you! Do you use a lip brush to apply?

    You can really pull off any colour. WELL JEL.

    I really can't stay away from my reds and corals, I need to get with the seasons! xo

    such a beautiful colour!
    wish I was brave enough to try this but I stick with either bright pink, red or more of a neutral pinky colour. x

    I love Rockalily Pompadour Pink. It is quite similar to the MAC one but more pinky. Just stunning and perfect for the winter.

    sexy lips πŸ˜‰
    you suit the colour amazingly, I think I'd look awful! It has taken me so long to do red lips though, so I might get there one day x

  10. 3rd November 2011 / 9:39 pm

    easily my favourite lipstick of all time. Looks lovely on you xx

  11. 3rd November 2011 / 9:53 pm

    Violetta is stunning! Looks great on you.

  12. 3rd November 2011 / 9:53 pm

    looks gorgeous πŸ™‚ x

  13. 3rd November 2011 / 10:03 pm

    Think I'm preparing myself for the plunge of berry lips! I'm think of layering to get a more vivid colour, so that'll occupy tommorrows post!


  14. 3rd November 2011 / 10:12 pm

    Gorgeous! It'd make me look like a clown -.-

    May I enquire what you've used on your lashes because they look amazing!

  15. 3rd November 2011 / 10:14 pm

    You make beauty products I would never dare try, look amazing! xoxo

  16. 3rd November 2011 / 10:21 pm

    I love this colour! I'm not entirely sure if it will suit me though, seems like it could be quite a hard colour to pull off.

  17. 3rd November 2011 / 10:32 pm

    Thats so pretty πŸ™‚ xx

  18. 3rd November 2011 / 10:39 pm

    That looks amazing! I have a purple lipstick but its too deep to pull off. My favourite winteresque lipstick would have to be avons really rosy, its fantastic!


  19. 3rd November 2011 / 10:39 pm

    that is such a beautiful colour! your lips look so shiny and glossy πŸ™‚ I tend to stick to a pinky brown as I've only recently starting wearing lipstick and am gently easing myself into it πŸ™‚

    this is super gorgeous on you!! xx

  22. 4th November 2011 / 9:43 am

    You have the perfect colouring to pull this one off, love it! I'm afraid I have to stick to nudes, but my sis always plumps for the deepest, darkest reds in winter and she looks amazing!

  24. 4th November 2011 / 12:34 pm

    You look lovely and I love your hair in these pics, I don't do daring lipstick shades but it really suits you xx

  25. 4th November 2011 / 5:11 pm

    That looks lush, suits you well. I wish I was brave enough to wear this colour.

    Oh my gosh I love Violetta!
    When the Venomous Villains collection came out this was the first product I bought – absolutely stunning colour.
    I don't really wear lipstick much, but this one made me want to start being more bold with my choice of lippy!

    Suits you so well, and really stands out!
