Review and Swatches: Sleek Mardi Gras Lip4 Palette

As you know I’m a purple lip lover so when I spotted the Mardi Gras Sleek lip palette I only had eyes for the gorgeous mesmerising purple (Rio).

In Pursuit of the Perfect Purple Pout: Part II

Good to know that I’m not the only one partial to a purple pout. Stylist Magazine recently got a bit violet. Just a bit of an update as the hunt for the perfect purple lipstick continues. Thanks to everyone who’s made suggestions. I’ve discovered a few more potentials. One thing that has become very obvious is how inaccurate the pictures that brands have of their … Continue reading In Pursuit of the Perfect Purple Pout: Part II

In Pursuit of The Colour Purple

I love purple. Love love love it. It goes without saying that I adore Prince. Below is a picture (any excuse) of the last time I saw him in concert. He was awesome but back to lipstick.I’ve recently developed an obsession with finding the perfect purple lipstick. It’s been like searching for the Holy Grail. I don’t want lilac or lavender or mauve or grape. I … Continue reading In Pursuit of The Colour Purple
