Va Va Violet...


Hey... 

I thought I would continue with yesterdays theme and share with you another Purple lipstick I have picked up recently.

I got this Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in colour 'Va Va Violet' for £5 in Boots the other day.  (All Revlon lip and nail products are currently £5 in Boots and Superdrug, super!)

When I swatched this on my hand in store it didn't look as dark as it does on my lips.  It is a very deep purple, when I look in the mirror (especially without my glasses) it looks black and with how pale I am I don't think it works on me.  I can't decide if I like this though because I like how it looks in these pictures but not in person.  

When I bought it my friend Rosy said she wanted it too and I said she could just borrow mine and then I could borrow the colour she was looking at.  So I'll probably give it to her.

Despite not being overly keen on the colour the formula is great, it is really pigmented and doesn't really have a scent, so I'll probably get a couple more whilst they are so cheap.

What do you think, yay or nay?
