Autumn Lipsticks: Up The Amp

This is reminding me of Snob here, although in real life it's much more of a deeper violet shade than Snob's pastel lilac hue.  It's a lovely bright purple colour, described by MAC as a "lavender violet".

Lavender is definitely the right word for this, and its Amplified Creme finish makes this an intense colour.  I have quite full lips, and I often worry that this is just too much on my face and that it's making me look a bit like a corpse.  I had to include it though, because when Blue October tried (and bought) it on our shopping trip it looked lovely on her.  She patted it in to her lips to make it less vibrant, which I'll have to give a go.

    1. It's one of those ones that some days I think looks really good and other days it just doesn't sit well with my skin tone x

  4. That looks like a pretty shade! I never tried purple lipstick and I like that it is bold and out of the ordinary!
