A Purple Pout Named Violetta: Sonia Kashuk’s Luxe Lip Color SPF 16 in Violetta

Published in: Daily Beauty

Everyone has their favorite colors of the year, right? Well, Pantone, purveyors of color standards for the design industry, picked theirs last month, and it’s called Radiant Orchid.


My purple pout today came via Sonia Kashuk’s Satin Luxe Lip Color SPF 16 in Violetta ($9.99) — a relative of Radiant Orchid.

Are you familiar with these lippies (the Satin Luxes)? They’re part of Sonia’s permanent line, and they’re FAB! — like drugstore versions of MAC Mineralize Rich Lipsticks.

Violetta here is a creamy purple with a mirror-like shine, and I think it looks quite fetching with coral cheeks. 🙂


This orchid prefers the climate inside Target stores (it’s also available online).

Doopdadoo… It’s 7, which means it’s almost time for bed (I’ve committed to going to sleep by 9 tonight)! Nothing new to report. I had a nice, relaxing day with Tabs and El Hub. I went for a run AND a walk, and then watched a ton of TV.

I need to work off all the dark chocolate stars I inhaled this season (blast you, Trader Joe, you delicious fiend!).

    Looks like such a cute color! I always get compliments when I wear purple, so I’m hoping that this purple lipstick will look good on me too.

    oooooh, I should try more of the SK line. as of right now, the furthest I’ve gotten into it is the brushes haha
    I took a darker, more vampy approach to the new color of the year today: NYX Round Lipstick in Violet Ray with Buxom Full-Bodied Lip Gloss in OMG. the gloss really loves up to its shade name, it’s one of my favorites!!

  8. Hi Karen, Happy New Year! I quite like this color on you. I have to be honest, it doesn’t wow me the way a pretty coral would, but it still looks lovely 🙂

    I’ve been eyeing this one since it came out but haven’t taken the plunge yet for fear of it being too purple. But there’s enough red that it looks quite lovely! I had it in mind for the color of the year as well 🙂
