FOTD: Annabelle Royale TwistUp

So, we are expected to get 10cm of snow today, getting home would be a long and messy trip.
On a better note, however, the center of the universe (or of this look, to simplify things a little lol) still is Annabelle TwistUp Retractable lipstick crayon in Royale. Talking beauty distracts me from other unpleasant things in life.
Royale is my most worn colour from the TwistUp lineup, partly because I have been so on to purple since last Fall, and also because I love the idea that I own a Canadian purple lipstick and use it proudly 🙂
It does look purple on me, but not purple enough to the extend I wanted it to be. Blame that on my naturally dark lips, not the lipstick. And I did not use a lip liner underneath in this look, just to stay true to the colour of Royale.
What do you think of this colour, or the purple lips trend, in general?
