Maybelline’s Color Sensational Lipstick in Violet Vixen (830)

Almost - but not quite - a glowy medium violet. I don’t like the way it can bunch up when applied, and I wish that it was easier to apply cleanly with a single stroke. Nevertheless, I was happy to find another truly purple lipstick. Not cabernet, not plum, not raisin…violet purple.
