    Add a couple violet-hued streaks to your hair with a quick spritz of this semi-permanent hair spray. This colour will last one day only, so it's the better option for the non-committal.  L’Oréal Paris Colorista Spray in Vivid Purple ($17), at lorealparis.ca.

    Smashbox released a new shade of its Always On Liquid Lipstick and just happened to name it Ultra-Violet. A coincidence? It appears so. Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick in Ultra-Violet ($28), at beautyboutique.ca.

    Incorporate Pantone's colour of the year into your hair routine with this violet-hued conditioner bar that will take brassy-ness out of blonde hair. (It won't turn it purple though, for that you need the Clairol or L'Oreal spray, above.) It's packed with nourishing ingredients like shea butter and argan oil. Lush Sugar Daddy-O Solid Conditioner ($13), at lush.ca.
