Purple eyeshadow: My collection & EOTD

I'm on a bit of a roll with my purple theme so I thought I'd share my current purple eyeshadow collection with you.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, purple is a staple shade for me as it goes well with my colouring.  I actually look at it as my alternative neutral to browns and taupes and I regularly wear lilac & purple eyeshadow to the office.

Here's my modest little stash up close:

Clockwise from top: Shale, Satellite Dreams & Crystal

Colorful duo No. 9

Eyeglitz Powder - Foiled Twilight

Revlon & Maybelline
On left: Revlon Creme Shadow - Wild Orchids (showing heavy use!)
On right:  Maybelline Eyestudio - Legendary Lilac

Here's a quick EOTD using all of the colours in the Maybelline palette.  I was actually pretty impressed with the wear of this palette.  For an inexpensive drugstore product it lasted most of the day with no fading and only slight creasing. 

Additional products I used:  MAC Powerpoint pencil (Bordeauxline) on outer upper lid & Lancome Definicils mascara (Black) on upper lashes only:

Until next time.

Vita :)


  1. The eotd looks great on you, very bright but wearable. I've got shale too but i find it a bit too dull for my colouring, which is a pity coz I really like it swatched.

  2. Thanks - I really like wearing these colours and I guess I'm lucky I can get away with it because of my pale skin.
