    I haven’t gotten mine yet(ordered with F&F) but i`m thinking my sweet strawberry from hello kitty.

    • Lo

      Just tried sweet strawberry and purple rite together and IMO they look really good together, S.S emphasises the pinker tones in P.R, but without loosing the purple completely, I think it would be a really pretty lip to wear with a soft gold/bronzey brown eye look. I think P.R also looks really good with little VI lustreglass, I’m really amazed at what a versatile lipstick it is actually!

    • Ohh, I think that would work for sure!

    I really wanted to like this lipstick, but it didn’t work out. I was expecting pretty purple, but turned out to be ordinary pink! If I kept it, I would have paired with Stark Naked BPB.

    I would tone it down my blotting it and overlaying it with a pink, like Sweetie. For eyes, I like to pair purple-pink lips with pink and black eyes: Soft Ochre paint pot all over eye area as a base, Sunset B. shadow all over lid, Pink Venus on inner lid, Carbon shadow in light layers to create a middle-to-outermost outer lid light black-to-deep black degrade, Carbon shadow and a bit of Nocturnelle shadow in crease and blended above the crease with Shroom shadow, Shroom shadow to highlight the brow, Blacktrack fluidline on upper lashline and lower waterline, Graphblack technakohl smudged on lower lashline, black Mascara X on lashes, clear Brow Set on brows to shape, Well Dressed blush on apples of cheeks, and blotted Purple Rite lipstick with Sweetie lipstick blotted as well, just because I tend to learn towards matte-ish lips. :) Enjoy!

    i think a brown-smokey eye look would go great with it!

    Surprisingly, I found it looks great with Nymphette gloss. It tones down the purple a bit so it can be more versatile.

    Purple Rite ended up being the “hero” item for me from Style Warriors. I actually have been incorporating it into some of my greyish/silver eye looks. The other day I did something a little different but very basic & on top of compliments, I really liked it.

    I went with Bare Study PP all over the lid up to brow. Lightly dusted Silver Ring over my lid & then put Orb on my brow bone. I took a teal liquid liner (Prestige) & added that to my upper lash line as I wanted a nice pop of color. I really lightly lined my lower lash line with a black/brown liner just to define my eye but not distract from what i had going on up top. Then I rocked UD’s 24/7 lipliner in Wicked w/ Purple Rite lipstick and Fierce & Fabulous lipglass on top. I really liked the outcome of this look :)

    I absolutely love purple rite, it’s the perfect soft purple for my extremely fair skin tone. I like layering morning glory lustreglass thinly over the top to make it look a little lilacy, and I pair it with a really simple eye look using silverthorn e/s smoked out with a tiny bit of carbon, and a little bit of frost piggie in the inner corner.

    I also think it goes well with frozen dream lipglass from the chill collection.

  8. In love Purple Rite. I wore it the other day with Fierce and Fabulous lipglass on top, and light purple eyes (dark pruple in the crease) and Laura Mercier Pink Mosaic Shimmer Bloc highlighter.

    I’ve been contemplating ordering this one but Lavender whip was too purple for me and I have to tone it down to make it work. How does this compare to Lavender whip and Fashion Mews?

    i put funtabulous dazzleglass over top of it. sooooo pretty and then some nuetral eyes.

    The other day I went full on purple–
    lust UD 24/7 liner, vibrant grape e/s over the liner and smoked a bit, starsn’rockets in the crease

    with a light touch of purple rite on the lips, no gloss.

    It’s Gorgeous!

    I wore mine the other day with a cat eye using Milani liquid eyeliner and Fancy Ray creme blush. I blotted it a bit and I really love the outcome. I will be using this as a simple day look again.
