Another day, another enabling. Previously, I shared my top high-end neutral (read here) and red lipsticks (read here) which most of you found helpful. Today I'm sharing a rather unusual shade, at least for everyday wear. Violet can be intimidating, probably more than fuchsia and coral but believe me, it's a stunning shade you need to own right now. My tip to wearing vibrant shades outside your comfort zone? keep the rest of your makeup simple and let your puckers be the center of attention.

Let's do a back-to-back on Bite Beauty, a Sephora exclusive. Right now I'm all about matte because it brings me back to 90's, my era! Imagine my fashion sense back then: Girbaud pants, Doc Martens boots, Fairuza Balk goth-matte-lips. While my style has evolved, my lips got stuck in mattes. Thankfully, it's all the rage again baby. Bite Beauty Matte Lip Crayon Grape (reviewed here) is semi-matte and ultra-saturated in one pass. It is moisturizing with superb longevity (seven hours, no retouch even after a meal). I believe this shade is discontinued but here's a similar violet from Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil line.

Described as magenta purple, Bite Beauty Luminous Lip Creme Violet (reviewed here) packs a punch just like its matte counterpart. In fact they don't differ much when worn, can you tell? {buy here}

Another Violet (yes that's the name), Dolce and Gabbana Lipstick Shine is fuchsia violet (reviewed here). It's part lipstick, part gloss with moderate pigmentation so if you want to play safe with purple, this is a nice lippy to own. {buy here}

If violet still scares you, Giorgio Armani Rouge d'Armani Sheers Plum (reviewed here) may convince you to venture out. I'm not really into sheerest- sheer hence my initial disappointment with this particular shade. Don't get me wrong, it's still a great lippy because it is very moisturizing so I've learned to like it in more ways than one. {buy here}

Don't be fooled by its outside appearance. While Gucci Lip Luxurious Tiger Lily (reviewed here) looks dark from the tube, it is wearable even at daytime. It's purple plum with holo finish; depending on certain lighting situations, you can detect pink and blue flecks. Very interesting indeed. {buy here}

  1. I don't own much in the way of violet. I have a Maybelline Color Elixir that would qualify and one lipstick that is so deep purple that I'm afraid to even be in the same room with it. Gucci Tiger Lily looks promising... Of course, they all look fantastic on you.

  2. I own a ton of violet lipsticks! I love the two Bite Beauty Lipsticks and the D&G one.

  3. It's amazing what range there is in the violet shades. I have some brights that I received from Milani and Jordana that I will wear in the summer when I get a bit of a tan. But Tiger Lily is stunning and looks great on you. I'd love that one.

  7. You pull off violet like no one's business! I like the idea of getting the Rouge d'Armani Sheers before venturing into bold violets.

  9. oh, Tiger Lily is fantastic on you. Want. I also love that D&G. I have a couple of Milani violet lippies that are nice, and Too Faced Melted Fig is a very nice, wearable muted violet.

  15. Every single one of these violet lippies is stunningly gorgeous, but on you they are just BEYOND stunning!

  16. Am I color blind? Every single one of these, with the exception of the Rouge D'Armani looks pink to me, not even a hint of purple. I own about 25 purple lipsticks, they are my favorites. These look great on you but I would not call them purple or violet at all.
