Lips, M.A.C

Lavender & Lilac Lipstick?

I have never understood the interest in lavender lipstick. I have to admit that this is probably because I think it would look silly  me on despite the fact that it looks gorgeous on some.

I have to say that in the last few weeks I have found myself wondering about lavender lips. I have heard many guru’s rave about MAC’s Lavender Whip and Barry M’s similar shade. They look pretty in the tube but I never gave them a second thought. I am now intrigued.

I would be interested to hear what you all think about the lavender/lilac shades.

Have you any in your make-up bag?

    Excellent weblog. I obtained a lot of excellent data. I?ve been retaining an eye on this engineering for awhile. It?s intriguing the way it keeps shifting, yet some of the core components stay the identical.

    Love lavender lips:-) However they can make the whitest of teeth look slightly yellow if you over do it :-O

    One of my all time favorite lipsticks is MAC’s Snob. I think it’s good for those of you who like lavender but can’t go all the way (like myself). It’s a very pale pink with just a hint of lavender. I really love it, especially with a little bronzer and black eyeliner.

    I got Amethyst (Gosh) earlier this week. The actual lipstick looks gorgeous and the colour is calling out to me. It is not that bright but I don’t know, there is something a bit daring about it and I get cold feet when I go to put it on. Maybe tomorrow, got a feeling it could be a weekend colour. To me, it kind of seems 80s and aren’t the 80’s eternally cool?!

    Well to me the appeal is that it’s a very unusual, unconventional shade, but infinately more wearable than, say, yellow or blue. So you can be a bit daring wearing an odd shade but it’s still quite flattering and on the ‘safe’ end of ‘odd’ :P

    I bought the BarryM one afew months ago and suprised myself that it actually looked nice and I felt comfortable.
    After afew weeks it ended up back in the draw and I forgot about it, but more recently I’ve been wanting something abit different from the ordinary nude lip and have been using it more :).

    They make my lips look way too yellow… but in theory I like the idea.

    Lavender lips are my absolute favourite! They would definitely suit you as you look as similar colour to me? Barry M 129, MAC Fashion Mews, Pervette & Funtabulous! They are all my most used lipsticks!
