Hello everyone! Long time no blog! I have been on Instagram a lot lately and it has been taking over blogging. I am really trying my best to get back into blogging more like I used to and sharing my excitement of what I have hauled either from MAC or Sephora. This blog post was supposed to be up back on July 27th but I had to retake a pic of some of my lipsticks to get it to not be too bright after so many attempts that I did last month and today I finally got it to be perfect. This is the promised post that I have been dying to do after hauling so many of the gorgeous purples that I have reviewed, swatched and loved. I forgot to include Midnight Mambo Mineralize Rich Lipstick in this post but will sometime do a collection of the Mineralize Rich Lipsticks soon whenever I purchase a few more shades. So onto my amazing post of the gorgeous purples lipsticks!
L-R: Snapdragon, Pure Heroine, Heavenly Hybrid, Budding Love, Goddess of the Sea, Private Party
Snapdragon is one of my favorite pink lavender shade this year! I love how it looks in the tube let alone with Playful Petal Cremesheen Glass! I sometimes with I backed up that lipstick since it gets lots of love! This lipstick came out with A Fantasy of Flowers Collection.
Pure Heroine is a gorgeous deep purple shade! I got two of them when it was lauched online at the perfect time! I love how it looks on the lips and I did not need any lip liner for it since it's perfect on it's own. This lipstick came out online with Lorde Collection.
Heavenly Hybrid is another amazing berry toned purple shade! I love it a lot and Snapdragon is so amazing with it! This is the lipstick that was a must when it first came out for those that love a shade like Heavenly Hybrid. This lipstick came out with A Fantasy of Flowers Collection.
Budding Love is a lavender shade that when it first came out, it was sold out fast! When I first got it, I fell in love with the shade despite being light on my skintone but there is always lip liner to make it work. I haven't used it in such a long time and will have to use it again soon it give it more love. This lipstick came out with Chen Man Collection.
Goddess of the Sea is my favorite purple right now and I still adore the packaging!! I fell in love with that lipstick that I really wanted to back it up but it was too late since it was sold out on MAC's website. This purple is nothing like the other purples that I own. This lipstick came out with Alluring Aquatic Collection.
Private Party is a shade that screams out Fall! I adore this lipstick very much along with the Cremesheen Glass version of it. This was the must have shade of last year and it quickly sold out online. It is an amazing lipstick shade that I really love! This lipstick came out with Divine Night Collection.
L-R: Punk Couture, Instigator, Heroine, Dish It Up, Viva Glam Nicki 2
Punk Couture is a fall must have lipstick if you like vampy dark lipstick shades. I really adore this lipstick a lot and there are no lipstick shades like it in my stash that is close to Punk Couture. This lipstick came out with Punk Couture Collection.
Instigator is one of the lipsticks that I would wear during the fall because it is such a bold lipstick that you could do a soft look to compliment Instigator. It is a stunning bold color and glad to own it! This lipstick came out with Punk Couture Collection.
Heroine is my all time favorite purple lipstick ever! When it first launched back in 2012, every person was going crazy looking for that lipstick and was repromoted last year. I am lucky to have a backup of it from last year since that lipstick is a must have for any season! This lipstick is part of the permanent range. It was once a HTF LE lipstick.
Dish It Up is another gorgeous berry toned lipstick that I loved! It is a gorgeous color and when I apply it, I just love how it looks as well as swatching it! This lipstick came out with Shop/Cook Collection.
Viva Glam Nicki 2 is an amazing lavender shade that I really liked and been wanting to back it up before it was taken off the website. I was really sad that I missed the opportunity to get a backup before it was gone. It is a shade that can be difficult to pull off for darker skintones but using a lip liner would definitely help pull it off.
L-R: Daddy's Little Girl, Feel My Pulse, Pure Heroine, Outrageously Fun, Dodgy Girl
Daddy's Little Girl is my favorite purple pink lipstick ever! I almost was so tempted to get a backup of it but was too late and still searching for a backup! That lipstick is so gorgeous on it's own and paired with Magenta Lip Liner. This lipstick came out with Archie's Girl Collection.
Feel My Pulse is also another favorite purple lipstick. Having a backup of it was so worth it because it is pure love and pure gorgeousness! If I didn't have a backup of Feel My Pulse then I wouldn't know what to do since it is too gorgeous to not have a backup. This lipstick came out with Temperature Rising Collection.
Pure Heroine is a dark purple shade that was too gorgeous to pass out and I own a backup of it since I plan to back it up in case. When it first launched online, it didn't sell out quickly that most people would have expected but it was online for awhile until it was sold out. This lipstick was launched online exclusively.
Outrageously Fun is another favorite of mine. When it first came out, I knew I had to have it! I love how it looks in the tube and have been searching for a backup of it since I regret getting a backup. I have enjoyed wearing it for the Holiday season and it is amazing! This lipstick came out with Glamour Daze Collection.
Dodgy Girl has been the it lipstick since it first came out and it is such in amazing pinky lavender shade. It was sold out so quickly that it is so hard to find and myself am looking for a backup right now. This lipstick came out with Sharon & Kelly Osbourne Collection.
Here are the swatches of the lipsticks below:
Hope you all enjoyed this post since I have not blogged in forever! Which of the purple lipsticks do you like best?

I am beyond excited that not only Miley Cyrus is the new Viva Glam Spokesperson, I am excited that the Viva Glam Lipstick and Lipglass are hot pink!!! I am a lover of hot pink lipsticks that MAC has in almost every collection! Being that this lipstick looks gorgeous in the promo images, I cannot wait for it to be launched in January! Viva Glam is a great cause to give back for every cent of your purchase of a Viva Glam lipstick and/or lipglass goes toward the AIDS Fund to help women, men and children that are living with/affected by AIDS/HIV.

Showing positivity towards this would make a great change for the world.

This collection originally was supposed to launch on October 16th but somehow the collection never launched online nor got released in stores the day it was supposed to be out and caused a lot of confusion. Even though I am happy that MAC confirmed the new release date of the collection. I am only getting the three lipsticks of course since I do not own too many dark shades. I will be stalking online for this collection for sure since I know that my MAC store will less than likely get this collection since it's going to be at select MAC locations.

Also, Nordstrom will have the collection up online tomorrow and do not forget to use Ebates to get cash back on every purchase you make.
