I Love Purple!

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love purple. It's a little bit of an obsession. I love every shade variation from pale lilac purple to the deepest plummy purple. Purple clothes, purple decor, purple earrings, and of course, purple makeup! ;) If I stand facing a wall of makeup, my eye will always be drawn to the purple shades first. So, imagine my delight when i came across the most gorgeous purple lipgloss I've ever seen! Quick disclaimer: this gloss was part of Revlon's Fall collection last year, BUT it is still available online here: Revlon ColorBurst lipgloss in Decadent
if you have a purple obsession too and feel that life would not be complete without this particular shade!
A little more current shade of lipstick and one that I believe is a part of their standing collection is
This is a gorgeous matte shade but it's very creamy and not drying at all. In the tube it seems like it would be way too purple to pull off but on the lips it takes on more of a berry pink hue. I don't know about you guys, but when I'm feeling down, a bright happy shade of lipstick is just the thing to perk me up, and I love Berry Haute for that! In the below pic I am wearing Berry Haute topped with Decadent gloss.
At what age does one become too old for Purple lipstick? (never, is my answer!)
And here is Berry Haute smudged into the lips with my finger, no gloss.
And for the finishing touches in your purple repertoire, I give you
 I know you might scoff at Wet n Wild, but this new formula is very longwearing and they have a great selection of colors to choose from!
And that concludes this little Ode to Purple! 
May your weekend be long, joyous, and filled with all things bright, beautiful, and violet!

Well, you know that I DO love my purple (eyeshadow, polish, scarves, etc.), but I'm NOT SURE I could carry off the purple lip gloss. On YOU, though, it looks fa-BOOSH. :-)

Hahaha! The not-a-secret purple craze! Do you still have those purple Report boots?

Suse, but, of course I still have them! They are the best boots ever!
