So for the past few months I have been looking for lipstick with NO sparkles in purple (violet). I did not realize how difficult this would be. Every time I found the perfect shade, there were sparkles in it(no me gusta!). After many unsuccessful attempts, I finally threw in the towel. During my last visit to Syracuse, I managed to find the shade I was looking for in a lip liner. Please be assured that I was looking for the shade in lip liner as well…I was almost desperate enough to buy purple eye liner. Now I am quite happy with my new colour that I have now added to my collections.
