Maybelline Violet Intrigue Limited Edition Lipstick| 2013 Fall ON THE RUNWAY COLLECTION

Maybelline has a new Fall 2013 Collection: On The Runway Collection. Within this collection 4 limited edition Colorsensational Lipsticks were released in 3 different shades of purple and 1 shade of hot pink.  I picked up one of the lipsticks in Violet Intrigue.  

Violet Intrigue is a beautiful darkened dusty plum color.  It is a cream formula and applies very opaque to the lips with just 2 swipes!  Some my think that purple lipstick is difficult to pull off, and I would tend to agree, however, this lipstick has a slight magenta undertone to it that makes it very wearable and on trend for Fall 2013.
I thought it would be helpful to compare Violet Intrigue to some other similar lipsticks that I had in my collection, so I pulled out a few of my favorite purples & swatched them to compare. 
Left to Right- Maybelline LE Violet Intrigue, Maybelline Brazen Berry, MAC Heroine LE & MAC Strong Woman LE

As you can see, Violet Intrigue is a mix between MAC Heroine & Strong Woman.  Heroine and Strong Woman are both Matte and Violet Intrigue has a satin creamy finish, but it has that bright quality of Heroine and the plum quality of Strong Woman.  It's the best of the two lipsticks!

Hope this was helpful!
