Radiant Orchids and Electric Purples!

Hey guys, welcome back :)

Pantone named the color of the year as 'Radiant Orchid' and seeing as I'm a big fan of magenta pinks and bright purples, I decided to share with you all my favorite purple and orchid lipsticks. So get ready for a lot of selfies swatching each color :)
Oh and p.s I'm not wearing any makeup in these photos (just a little bit of concealer under my eyes, good lighting and of course, the lipsticks).




So let's get started with the first batch!
First up is Maybelline's Neon Baby Lips in Berry Bomb. It's a darker purple in the tube but swatches quite sheer, offering a light wash of purple for those girls who want a purple tint with out the BAM IN YOUR FACE!
Next we have Rimmel's Lasting Finish Colour Rush in I Want Candy. First of all, let's talk about the smell. It's like opening a package of mini eggs- vanilla cupcake yumminess! This color is a bright pinky magenta and offers a gorgeous stain.
Third lippy is the Maybelline color whisper in Mad for Magenta. It's a silky, moisturizing lip product. I would say is a more red toned pinky magenta and it's so flattering :)



In this corner we have the limited edition lipstick from MAC called Daddy's Little Girl. It's literally the bomb dot com. So glad I got this. It's a true blue toned Magenta and it lasts forever and is just plain gorgeous!
Next up is MAC's Rebel. This cranberry shade has hints of purple in it, which I thought fit well into this list of lippies!
And here we have the 'piece de resistance'; MAC's Heroine. I can't even with this shade. It's such a GORGEOUS purple and it has a pink tone in it which makes so wearable and stunning! It's not for the faint of heart, but it's definitely one of my all time favorite lipsticks (right next to MAC's candy yum yum).
The last shade is Maybelline's Lavender Voltage and it's pretty much a dupe for Heroine. It's creamy as opposed to Heroine's Matte finish and it has just a teeny amount of blue tone. Still super stunning and bold <3


Hope you enjoyed this Selfie Swatch Fest!
Don't be afraid to wear purple- it comes in many different tones and finishes!
Experiment and don't ever be afraid to rock a bold lip ;)
