My Purple Look

I did a lovely purple look today. I used Stila’s Purple Pumps as a base for the look, which I rarely do. It’s a bright purple with pink shimmer. I’m not sure why, but I decided Leopard-Print Galaxy needed to be involved in this look and I think you can see the really cool chartreuse and pink on the inner lid. I love how this turned out, though I wish Glitterboi had been a bit stronger. I probably should have used Pixie Epoxy with it, but I wanted the creme base to show through, too.

I also included Maximus guarding my feet, and Phaedra curled up in a tight little ball right next to me. I’m apparently the Mistress of the Beasts.

Shade Descriptions:
Purple Pumps – purple with pink shimmer
Poison Plum – dramatic purple with a semi-pearly sheen
Blanc Type – creamy beige (matte2)
Ancient Mirage – pale ivory taupe with lavender shimmer
Leopard-Print Galaxy – Starts a golden rosey chartreuse, yellowy-green with a peachy sheen, and shifts to a bright, clear green chartreuse near light. Metallic & sparkle
Sequined Master – Sparkly purple, sparkliest of them all. Starts off a cool purple with silvery and pink sparkles, and closer to light turns a more vibrant magenta-purple. Less metallic, but very sparkly.
Glitterboi – the most perplexing. In the jar a deep midnight blue, on skin it’s a deep blue with purple sparkles and a very strong green sheen. Closer to light, morphs to a dark, vibrant blue-based purple. Metallic & sparkly.
Shinigami – deep, smoldering royal purple entwined with a scattering of blue and crimson sparkle
Princess of Darkness – rich berry-magenta with a slight satin finish

      Oh my, this is so beautiful. It makes me wish even more than I could pull off purples *sniff*.

      BTW, I don’t know if I already mentioned it, but I’m loving your new hair. I think it looks stunning on you. xo

      And look at that face on Maximus! I just wanna kiss him!
