Purple Pop

When I was reading my monthly magazines today, I realized all things Purple are all the rage! I totally predicted this when I did my purple lip post the other day.  Here are a few ultra trendy looks that we are digging!

1.  According to Seventeen Magazine, Emma Watson's signature get-glam color is Lancome Rouge in Love Lipcolor in Sweet Embrace.
This swatch from Lancome's website couldn't look MORE different than it appears to look in the magazine.

2.  According to Lucky Magazine, Emma Watson's favorite lip shade is actually Lancome Rouge in Love Lipcolor in Midnight Rose.  We love both shades and have a hunch that she trades off between her favorite purples!

This swatch couldn't look any different than it looked in the magazine either!

We'll be looking for dupes for these pretties!

3.  If you don't think you can pull off a bold purple lip, sheer washes of color are also in right now.  Try Revlon Lip Butter in the shade Lollipop or Raspberry Pie.

Lollipop- 3rd shade over, Raspberry Pie- 5th Shade over.

4.  Matching your lip shade identically to your cheek shade is totally in.  If you do a purple lip, try a blush like Benefit's Hervana which has purple in it!

I'm finding that some of the beauty bloggers out there have better truer to life images than the companies' websites.  Thanks Temptalia!

5.  Everyone's into bold eye liner colors right now!  Here are a few great purple ones to try:

Milani Infinite Liquid Eyeliner- Endless
Estee Lauder Untamed Violet Double Wear Eye Pencil

6.  Shimmer and Glimmer are in this Spring, but not oil.  Channel your inner purple diva by matching your blotting papers to your lip color!  

Mai Couture Blotting Papers- we received these in our MyGlam bags last month and fell in love!  They are also perfect for travel!

7.  Ombre eyelids using purples and blues.  I love the look that Jessica Harlow  created using a variety of different eyeshadow shades.  OUR Jessica has a post coming up soon where she chooses 5-6 different shades and starts layering and playing with them, so stay tuned.  Don't you LOVE this look?

Check out this video clip on YouTube for a tutorial. 

8.  Bright purple eyes and with no liner or mascara were featured in Glamour magazine this month.  Such a fun, cool look!  

Get a copy of their February 2012 mag, or download it on your Nook if you want to save paper.

We would love it if you did a purple look and tagged us on Facebook!!

Yours in beautiful purple, Justina


  1. To be fair, Emma Watson is the new spokesmodel for L'ancome, so I'm sure she is kind of obligated to choose that brand as a fave of her. I'm sure they're great colors and lipsticks, but I'm just saying!


  2. I thought they were super pretty in the magazines and I want to find lipstick is worth $29! I think they are only allowed to do photo shoots with the brand they represent, but they can probably admit to liking any brand. I do know that she was a fan of Lancome before she started with them though. But c'mon they're going with my purple theme!
