EOTD: L.A.Colors Purple...

I create an EOTD every work day of the week and usually post the pics on Instagram, but I only upload my particular favourites here. And before posting, I check that I'm not going to bore you with the repeaters (my never-fail standbys for rushed mornings that I haven't had time to plan), but I noticed I didn't post a purple look last month, so here's one from last week...

Try as I might, there are just some palettes I simply can't let go of, and this L.A.Colors Venus Baked Eye Shadow Quad is one of them. Must be at least three years old and the lid is no longer attached, but the pigment is just as potent as the day I bought it, and I haven't found anything else that has such a gorgeous mix of purpley pink hues  

I laid down a base of Mirenesse Superlong Wear Gel Face Colour in Virgin Violet, and added this to my waterline as well. Didn't pat anything into to my crease except my usual NYX matte taupe that I use on the whole hooded area...

Despite finding some brilliant bargain foundations lately (by bargain I mean under $20), my Lancôme Teint Visionnaire remains my numero uno for finish and coverage. On the cheeks I'm wearing a purply pink from the bhcosmetics Glamorous Blush palette (I'll be hitting pan on this LONG before any of the others), and lips are Revlon Super Lustrous Seduction with a teeny bit of Maybelline Color Elixir Gloss in Petal Plush...

I've recently acquired some new palettes that are loaded with fabulous purples, so expect to see a few more looks using this shade family in the coming weeks 

Take care of you,

  1. I love purple! Purple or plum is my go-to when I don't know what to do. If I'm in a rush I usually reach for my L'Oreal Disco Smoking. The lip co-ordinates perfectly. This is the vibrancy that I love about winter.

    1. Me too sugar - oh yeah Disco Smoking, time for another airing, thanks for the reminder! xxx

  2. This purple reminds me of those Yardley eyeshadow pots you used to get (when I was a teen). They had the most beautiful purple.

    Looks beautiful kats :-)

    1. Thanks doll - just when I think green is my fave eyeshadow colour I do a purple EOTD and have to reconsider lol! ♡♡♡
