I love Violetta lipstick! (Lip of the Day)

I've been hearing that Mac's Violetta is a "must have" lipstick. I bought it and didn't like it at first but I tried it again and added a different lip liner and gloss to it and I love it!

Sometimes when I do makeup, I just want a flawless face and banging, colorful lips ONLY-nothing else. That's what I did in this look. The focus was the lips. I think a pretty colorful lip is going to be my signature trademark (every artist has one) I love doing a colorful lip on myself and clients-when the need calls for it.

What I used.

From left to right: Mac Nymphette lip glass, Mac Violetta lipstick and Mac Nightmoth lip liner.
What I Used:


-Mac Studio Tech foundation in NC44
-Mac Vintage Grape ombre blush


-Maybelline Falsies Volum mascara


-Mac Violetta lipstick (Bright violet)
-Mac Nightmoth lip liner (Blackened plum)
-Mac Nymphette lip glass (Sunny golden pink)

Violetta is a beautiful color, it is an amplified cream lipstick... so that means it delivers a high color pay off. It is also a Mac pro item but ANYONE can purchase Mac pro items through their pro phone number.

Ah the infamous Vintage grape that I missed out on! Love this look. These colors are fabulous with your coloring.
Ms. Viva Glam said…
@ Agent Elle: Hey girl, Thanks! I didn't know you missed out on Vintage Grape, I thought that was the Ripe peach blush you didn't get? Or did you get it?
Agent Elle said…
I missed out on both! =( I was able to get the third 'Springsheen' one. It's nice, but not as fab as those two.

How I Refurbished my Louis Vuitton Speedy...

I bought an authentic preloved Louis Vuitton Damier Speedy bag a few months back. While I was so excited to finally get the bag and wear it, I realized (at that time of buying and when I received it) that the bag had some wear on it that could use some fixing up. After searching online, I found a blogger, Lollipuff, who posted an article on how to refurbish LV bags.

Based on the recommendations in the post, I used the following products: Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, Blue Magic Metal Polish cream (tube) and Cadillac Boot and Shine leather conditioner. I also used laundry detergent and baby wipes. All of the products used can be used on any bag to spruce it up. Read on for the deets, to see how you can spruce up your handbag!


At first glance, the bag had some sheen on the exterior. Most of the brass fixtures had green tarnishing (which happens with aging of brass). The leather handles were dull. The bag had lost some of its shape. The inside was the kicker! The red interior was terrib…
