The "it" color of the spring is a orchid/violet/plum-inspired purple, which is gorgeous on, say, a pair of suede pumps or crystal earrings. Our lips, on the other hand? We're not yet convinced that we can pull it off, but if we're gonna try, it's going to be with Dolce & Gabbana's The Lipstick Shine Lipstick ($32) in Violet. It's got enough of a pink undertone to counterbalance the brightness of the purple, and the stick carries a light shine so we're not stuck with solid matte lip that makes us look like Barney the Dinosaur fangirls.
