i haven’t seen this but that sounds like good news to me.  i need to wear lipsticks with purple undertones.  pinks, reds, etc always turn orange on my lips and look terrible.

I am LOVING the purple tones, honestly. I don’t get many opportunities to wear them, but it’s fun for me. But, I also love peachy/orangy/pink tones, too. Depends on my mood. With summer coming, I definitely lean more towards the softer/brighter colors.

Barbiestylez:  Hello, Olive skinned girl here! I feel your pain. I waited a while for these kinds of colors to come in to style. The newer colors that have come out go well with my skin tone but they are also all very bold so I rarely get to take advantage of the brighter colors. I have gotten to wear my darker purples though 🙂 Im sorry you don’t like them. Like everything it won’t last forever! I tried to upload a photo of me wearing one of my lovely purple lipsticks but weddingbee apparently doesn’t allow my kind of photos 🙁

Barbiestylez:  Purples are “in” because this year’s Pantone Color of the Year is “Radiant Orchid”. I’m with you, I’m not a fan.

Barbiestylez:  The top Armour lipgloss looks a lot like the Drew Barrymore’s Flower brand lipstick that I just got in the shade Morning Glory. I never thought I could pull off a cooler pink until I tried that one.

Barbiestylez:  YES. I’m so over the purple lip craze. I was never with it to begin with, but man I want it to be over already. Bring back the oranges, I say! They’re much more summery and flattering.

As a fair-skinned ginger-haired gal, I have never been into the purple-coloured lipsticks. I find that most brands offer neutral and warm colours. Personally, I love Illmasqua’s “Howl” (a deep terracotta red) and Boots No. 7 in Spice and Romantic Berry.

Fashion is fleeting, but style is forever. It’s much better to know what looks good on you than to be trendy. I have never really followed fashion, but prefer a classic look, which every so often seems to become fashionable again. I’ll just wait my turn, and in the meantime I’ll be classically stylish.

I feel that I look best in nudes or light pinks. Nothing else seems to flatter my face/tone.

I can totally rock some fuschia lip color.  However, those extremes, the lilac and dark purple….not for me!

I have fair skin with pinkish undertones and brown hair, so I can pull off a wide range of colors.  Definitely can’t do nudes or orangey colors though.  I usually stick to the pinks, reds, and berries.  🙂

I think since the color of the year is Radiant Orchid, you’re going to see a lot of purples this year.
