Looking for a fun purple lipstick!

Hey girls,


I'm in the market for a shock factor purple lipstick. My skin tone is medium-light with neutral/slightly olive undertones. I like the lok of the violet color from the YSL Arty Stone promo pics for Spring 2013. Also just stumbled upon the Bite Beauty lip pencil in Violet... has anyone tried either of these colors? Anyone have a suggestion for a different purple? I'm willing to try anything but no frosted lilac-y colors.

I don't know if this falls in the realm of "frosted lilac-y colors," but I recently purchased two of the new Buxom Full Bodied Lipsticks and I love them. One of the shades is a light purple (Swinger) and it's gorgeous and I think it's very wearable.

One of the most popular purples that I have observed is Mac's Rebel --->

although it is dark, I find it look nice on my skin tone, which is medium which yellow undertones. 


I also Like the very affordable Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Violet Frenzy.  This Revlon Lipstick is also very moisturing and silky.  I think the color would look good on several different skin tones.

Hi carolang,


Have you looked at Illamasqua? They have amazing pigment and two beautiful purple shades:


Underworld (iridescent violet)

Illamasqua - Lipstick


Kontrol (matte deep lavender)

Illamasqua - Lipstick

I also have a pretty purple lip called "up the amp" by mac , and look at our Sephora Glossy Gloss in "#16 Tangy Bite"
