Spring Purples with Lancome Amethyst Glam

I wanted to see how this palette performed before reviewing it, so I did this quick look!

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249.  Apply the pale white-pink eyeshadow to the inner half of the lid and tearduct with the 239.  Next, apply the soft lilac eyeshadow to the outer half of the lid with the 239.  Using the 222, apply the lilac purple eyeshadow to the crease and blend towards the inner crease.  Highlight the brow bone with Dune eyeshadow with the 239.  Apply Asphyxia liner on the lower lash line, and then apply Perversion liner on the lower water line.  Finish by sweeping lashes with Buxom Lash mascara.

For cheeks, apply Flush cheek stain on the apples of the cheeks and pat towards the temple with fingers.

For lips, apply Bikini Pink lipstick for a complementing lip.

  1. So gorgeous! I must have this palette!

    Wow…I’ve been so bored of purples lately…but I LOVE this! These colors are soo soo pretty!

    • Aww! Bored of purples?!?! YOU?!

        I’ve been wearing them a whole lot and kinda ran out of different ways to wear them. Too bad I can’t afford to get this palette though. Guess I’ll have to see if I have any dupes in my MAC eyeshadows instead. Crease color looks like it might be similar to Creme De Violet, but I can never get that color to show up very much.

    This look is so sweeeet! UD Asphyxia is just amazing! Truly matches the Lancome Amethyst palette. I love it <3

    And BB Bikini Pink is now on my wish list 😀 Reminds me of MAC Overtime.

  4. Love the eye look. I’m a sucker for everything purple! <3

    It’s raining in SoCal — bummer, but after I saw this post my mood perked up.. Spring is right around the corner! You look so fresh and glowing! I did circles around the Hourglass Cheek Stain last weekend, I think this picture is the extra nudge I needed to purchase it. Lovely as usual Christine :)

  6. Sarah

    I’d love it if you did a look with the teal lancome one too :)

  7. Marcela

    beauuuutiful look! i love the shimmer! i’m gonna try to replicate this look with MAC dupes.

  8. Porcelain

    In the photos (on my screen at least) the crease colour looks similar to MAC Stars’n’Rockets. How does it compare in person?

    Fantastic purples on you, by the way. Cool but not too cool :)

    Christine, I notice in all of the close ups of your eye looks that your brows never show any stubble or stray hair. Do you have any tips or tricks for maintaining such a clean brow line?

  10. daphne

    Ooooh this is gorgeous. The crease color reminds me of Stars n Rockets. I like seeing you with lip combos (as opposed to just lipstick) best 😉 but I’m sure you are probably just trying to share some new lipsticks with us!

    Love the eye – it’s so flawlessly blended! I’m on the fence with the fallout, though; I feel like it’s a little more noticeable in a look than it is when swatched, yeah? (And on that note, thank you so much for posting your FOTD with this one ^^)

  12. Julia

    Christine- How are you liking the Hourglass cheek stain? Worth the money?

  13. GJ

    OMG this is so gorgeous! And I LOVE the bikini pink lipstick I have to have it!

  14. Victoria

    How are you liking the Bobbi Brown rich color lipsticks so far?

  15. Morena123

    lovely. that was the palette that I was loking at on this site yesterday. I love it!!

  16. Love this look, makes me think of spring! And I’m SO ready for spring to be here!

  17. CeeBee

    Ooooh, I LOVE purple e/s! You look lovely and fresh and radiant :)

    Bikini Pink is cute too, though I think it leans a little too peach for me – I’ll have to check it out in person and I *cannot* wait till these arrive in NZ!

  18. Urska

    Sooooo pretty and romantic 😉

  19. Lindsey

    Spring/Summer is coming up, do you think you’ll be able to do more tinted moisturizer reviews?

  20. Maryel

    Love it! Specially the eyes, i must try it :)

  21. Rengirl

    I love this look. I am trying it tomorrow.

  22. Elle

    You look like a fairy in this color. (That’s a compliment!) Love this on you!

  23. Leslie

    holy CRAP this looks awesome! I’ve been on the fence about a few of these palettes, but seeing your look is doing me in with this one! I kept thinking “I already have 20 million purples” but I DO love having everything in a palette. SO much easier when I’m trying to hurry out the door and have like, 2 seconds to throw something together. I don’t wanna search for my individual purples.

  24. Nice e/s combo! I think I will try this out using my Sephora 5-in-1 palette.

  25. abby

    wow gorgeous Christine! how do you make everything look so gorgeous??

  26. Sue

    The Hourglass tint looks amazing on you! Hourglass…why must you be so expensive for a college student :(

  27. Emily

  33. I love this look!! So fresh, makes me think of spring coming :) I’m def inspired to do a purple look the next time I go out! xx

  34. Niki

    May I ask the brush you used to apply the eyeshadows?

  35. Elena

    Hi Christine…those are beautiful shades of purple, do you of any UD dupes close enough to recreate this look?

  36. This is fab! Can’t wait to try this look for spring.

  37. This is such a gorgeous look!
