For so many years many cosmetic companies only sold lipstick shades in pinks, reds, browns, and other neutrals. Lucky for us the cosmetic companies like to flip things up every now and then spanning as far back as the 50s. The neutral decades of the 40s, 50s, we're followed. By bright, and fun makeup of the 60s, 70s, and 80s. By the 90s bright fun colors slowly faded out right about the same time of body glitter. The resurgence of bright fun colors has been gaining speed since 2008 and I sincerely hope it continues.
So whats this about purple lipstick... Oh yeah! So every cosmetic company from Mac (not that unexpected) to revlon (very unexpected!) have been releasing amazing purple shades! Those with pink undertones, or in the plum family are great for everyday, even work wear. While bright, super opaque true purples with blue bases are great for going out or for just having all eyes on you!

This matte purple is a true violet. Since it is matte the colour lasts long on the lips. This is a very daring color but also a very beautiful one. Any woman with confidence can pull this one off. Probably not sutable for work unless you work at Mac.
