Editor's Review

African Violet is a warm, plummy purple with larger gold sparkle and shimmer. It's part of the permanent range, and it's been included in past palette releases from the brand. It's an interesting shade, but it seems to have production issues; you'll see a lot of love it or hate it kind of reviews. This was the smoothest and softest version I've come across, but the shimmer separates slightly when you start to blend it on the lid still. It lasted for seven hours on me before fading. Smashbox Amethyst (P, ) is darker. Too Faced Passion (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter. Kat Von D Love Letter (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker. Colour Pop Prickly Pear (LE, $5.00) is more shimmery, cooler. bareMinerals Catch Me If (P, ) is less shimmery, cooler. MAC Pinkluxe #3 (P, ) is more shimmery, cooler. theBalm #2 (P, $6.50) is lighter, cooler, less shimmery. MAC Neo Nebula (LE, $21.00) is lighter, cooler. Urban Decay Bordello (P, $18.00) is cooler. theBalm A1 (LE, $16.00) is lighter, less pigmented, less shimmery. theBalm rem (P, $16.00) is cooler. Fyrinnae Meerkat (Pressed) (P, $8.25) is darker, brighter. Fyrinnae Meerkat (P, $6.80) is darker, brighter, more pigmented, less shimmery. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
