MAC Violetta

One of the advantages of teaching Personal Makeup classes in Makeup Designory Manila is that I get to discover new makeup trends/brands through my students. During my class 2 weeks ago, one of my students, Analyn, whipped out MAC Violetta lipstick, a red-based purple shade that looks intimidating and unwearable at first glance.


It’s a Pro shade, meaning it’s not readily available in your usual MAC counters in Rustans or Trinoma, but just online and in selected stores abroad. Analyn was gushing about it, but I was still quite hesitant to believe her because even I would think twice about pulling off purple lipstick– the color looks a bit vampy to me. But as she swiped it on, I instantly loved it!

Looks totally wearable to me! Analyn rocked this shade. It definitely is a statement lipstick that I would wear if I want something with WOW factor. And also during my tamad days when I’m just too lazy to put on full makeup, I could have nothing but this on my face and I’ll instantly look glammed up. šŸ™‚

    My sis has been looking for that shade for months now! When I was in HK, I also tried the mac store and they did not have it. šŸ˜¦

      RR, mukhang mahirap nga yata siyang hanapin coz it’s a Pro shade. Try mo sa States šŸ™‚
