The Purple Lip

Hey Guys!

I am back with another beauty review for you all. I shall be sharing my thoughts on the beautiful Va Va Violet lipstick by Revlon, a creamy dark plum shade that is perfect for adding a touch of glamour to your look.

Not going to lie, this shade is not for the faint-hearted! It took me a while to muster up enough courage to wear this in public, but I am so glad I did! It truly is a gorgeous lipstick.

Formula// This shade is one of Revlon's Super Lustrous Lipsticks, and is one of the most creamy, moisturizing lipsticks I have ever tried. The color is true to the color in the bullet, but does not go on very evenly. Despite being pigmented, you definitely need to apply a lipliner under this to help it go on in a smooth, even layer. I didn't have a lipliner that perfectly matches the color, so I had to make do with a burgundy shade. I applied the liner, then a layer of lipstick, before blotting with a tissue and reapplying the lipstick.

Staying Power// The lipstick actually stayed for about 2 hours before I had to reapply, which I found quite impressive as I wore it to a party where I literally danced for about 5 hours straight, no stopping! I only brought the bullet with me to the party, and I found it quite easy to reapply, no wonky lines or anything!

Overall I think this is a beautiful lipstick, but do be aware of the fact that you will need a lipliner with it! The lipstick is available from Boots and most pharmacies.

Thank you all so much for reading this, I hope you enjoyed it. I will talk to you all soon, I'm off to go practice my German, I have my mock oral tomorrow! Good luck to any of you doing your mocks as well, I know you will all do fantastic!

xoxo, Emma
