A Top 10 Deep Purple Lipstick Guide

Peter Lindbergh Vogue Italia

 

To celebrate fall, I’ve put together a guide of deep, dark purple lip colors. These sort of purples aren’t for everyone. I wear them because I love the drama.

The Lipstick League – week of 4.18.11 – Happy Easter!

Question: What’s your signature lip color?

EauMG’s Answer: My signature lip color changes yearly and seasonally. I have went from MAC Lipstick in Snob, a milky pale pink, when I had long hair and wore it in a beehive.
