purple people eater

I've never been much of a purple girl. My favourite colour is orange, and I wear warm colours (or black) the majority of the time. In recent weeks, however, I've fallen in love with purple-toned taupes and browns, shimmering dark violet shades and most heavily for lilac. Here I share with you a selection of my brighter purple shades, and I'd love for you to share your picks in the comments!
The first shadow is In Deep by Kit Cosmetics, which I bought on sale as a brave move to step into the world of purple AND darker eye shadows! The next one along is Quartz by Face of Australia, which is a stunning lilac shade. My MAC Dame Edna palette is next, which I love for the inclusion of three version different types of purple.
Another beautiful palette I own which contains very different types of purple shades is my Elianto palette. The beautiful Emily from Emily's Anthology brought this back from Malaysia for me quite some time ago. I fell in love with Elianto when I visited Malaysia for the first time, and I am so happy to own this beautiful palette. This palette was customisable, and I love the shades I chose and really need to use them more.
You can see the various intensities and shades here.
 Quartz is so so pretty!
Elianto have such beautifully pigmented colours, I highly recommend visiting them if you're in Malaysia! 
I have a post with my newer purple acquisitions coming up, featuring beauties from Laura Mercier and Illamasqua, among many others!
Do you have a colour that you gravitate to in your makeup?
Which shade of purple stands out most to you?
I bought all of these shadows myself. Honesty, always.


  1. I've always been a purple girl so this post was guaranteed to catch my attention. Quartz looks like such a pretty shade, I don't know how I missed it. Do you know if it's still available?

  2. I love purple shadows ..Elianto palette looks really pretty and currently am loving Gravity by Urban Decay

  3. I am terrified of wearing these colours. TERRIFIED.

  4. Those swatches are so amazing well done!

  5. I have so many different shades of purple, that asking me to name one shade is just plain cruel. I love all of these colours!


I'd love to hear your opinion on this post! Please don't leave links in your comments, I always check out the bloggers who comment so there is no need :)
