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.
i love this eyeshadow.it is such a pretty purple color that i love so much!so beautiful...
The colour is a vibrant violet by itself, howver, if you put it over a soft layer of black shadow, it turns into a dark bluish purple colour, very pretty, reminds me of urban decay's ransom. I have MAC's queens jewel from the 2006 cool eyes palette, and it looks exactly the same.
I use this on my crease, not on the whole lid, otherwise it's too chalky. It's lighter than it looks in the pan. It's more purple/lavender than purple. I use MAC Yogurt all over lid, NYX purple in the crease, and MAC Typographic orTrax and sometimes Ulta plum noir in the outer V.
