Out of all my purple eyeshadows, this is by far the most gorgeous. I have a few purple undertoned eyeshadows from NYX that I like for more muted looks- but this will work if you want a bright popping purple, or subdued (by pairing it with a dark brown or gold)....The color of this purple is just breath taking- its so bright, and so luxe looking. It applies very pigmented, and lasts all day with a proper primer and base- I have already hit pan on this, and I intend to purchase another one very soon. For eyeshadow that is this high in quality, and so cheap in price- I'm so impressed. All of the NYX eyeshadows I own are just perfect in every way.
BEAUTIFUL color. It's very pigmented and applies well. It lasts all day long without fading or smudging. I find that the color is true, but that may be because I sometimes use a primer or a shadow base.
This color alone is more of a rich lavender color, but if you wear it with a purple base, it will look the same as it appears. Every time I wear this purple, I get complements from customers at my work. The color stays all day, I didn't even need to touch up from working day shift to going out with my friends after. It is a very pretty and vibrant purple, haven't seen it anywhere else so I will definitely repurchase when I run out.
I like this, but it's much lighter in color than it looks in the pan, and I agree that it's more lavender than purple. I got this to wear with Luxor, which I LOVE, but I find this isn't as smooth as Luxor. For the price, I can't complain, and I think if I were to wet this to get a more intense color it might work better. I'll have to experiment with this one.
AMAZING blue based purple. I don't think it's the most pigmented eyeshadow available, but a few swipes makes the purple pop. It also lasts all day, barely fades, and doesn't crease (over a primer). It also becomes a lot more blue whenever it's layered over a black base (like a deep purple with a very, very visible blue sheen). The perfect purple shade for my NC20 skin.
I am on the hunt for an hg purple eyeshadow. WHen u see it in the pan, it's a gorgeous medium purple shade but on my lids it hardly show up and it has this weird pink tone to it when i blend it. I really wanted this to work but the color HARDLY show up on my lids and I am NC 20-25!!! I used this on top of the TFSI and it still barely show. When I had this on i notice a slight pinkish tone. My friend saw me with this on and thought I had on pink eyeshadow and clealy it says purple on the packaging.
I have this color in the nyx trio. I really did not like it on myself. I am fair skined and have blue eyes. It just did not work with my skin tone at all I tried everything from blend blend blend to mixing with other colors I really tried to make it work. I am also never afraid to wear bold colors as I always do this was to heavy for me even with a liht hand. It stinks I wanted to like it.
For the price point, this is a good eyeshadow. It's not as smooth and pigmented as some of my other Nyx eyeshadows, but it's still much better than other drugstore brands. It's a medium toned purple so I don't know how often I reach for it because it's about the same tone as my skin. It's a good shade to keep in the collection and i like to use it with a dark sparkly gray. mmmm.
Pretty colour, good for evening, and very cheap.
This is a bright, true purple with a lavender duochrome sheen. Apply it over a good primer. I've been shopping my own stash for Fall trends. This gorgeous, attention-grabbing purple will definitely see a lot of action.
