I love purple eyeshadow! It’s such a great shade to use on the outer lid or crease when paired with golds, pinks, corals, and aquas. These are five of my current top picks for anyone on the hunt for a fun purple eyeshadow to try! (You can see them all here in the Swatch Gallery.) What are your favorites? What would you recommend to other readers?
I thought coming up with a beautiful rainbow of hues might be a fun (and challenging!) theme to work under. Of course, I took liberties with the concept of rainbow and added a few in-between shades to make a full list of ten. I would love to see what your top ten shades are, in rainbow-order, so-to-speak!
Don’t be afraid of rocking blue eyeshadow! There are so many variations on blue, whether they lean green or purple, bright or muted, light or dark that can be worn. Here are five of my picks for spring:
It’s a new and limited edition shade from Sugarpill’s loose eyeshadow range. Applied dry, it had semi-sheer to semi-opaque color payoff, and when applied with a dampened brush (I just used water), it’s intensely pigmented and very, very smooth. The texture is so soft and silky, as it is very finely-milled, so it almost melts against the skin. Smitten wore well for nine hours and had some light fading after that, and it very lightly stained my lids but was gone by morning.
Sometimes products are discontinued or limited edition, which means that a product may no longer be available at one or more retailers so you may need to shop around for those hard-to-find shades! We try to update products as they become discontinued, and if you discover a product has been discontinued, please help us help others by letting us know.
