Color Focus: Deep Purple Eye Shadows

I love the smokey eye looks that come out for fall but until recently, it seems like most all the lines usually release the typical variations of black and grey for their "smokey look." I am not one who can pull of black eyeshadow or eyeliner easily because it's often too harsh or ends up looking blueish on my skin. I have to opt for other deep colors and did a series on Smokey Eye Variations back in June and am so excited that lines are now releasing collections with a "black/smokey" theme that include colors other than just black or grey.

I just discovered 2 new deep purple shimmery eyeshadows from MAC and Dior and thought I'd pull out some of my favorite deep purples to compare.



1. Dior Ultra-Smooth High Impact Eyeshadow in #186 Ultra Violet
2. MAC Mineralize Eyeshadow in Young Punk
3. Laura Mercier Sateen Eyeshadow in Kir Royal
4. MAC Fertile Eyeshadow
5. Giorgio Armani Maestro #18
6. Bobbi Brown Metallic Eyeshadow in After Hours
7. Stila Poise

  1. Great post! Thanks for the info on the other sets, too! Spark and Giggle are a good combination, IMO. Is the Tulipe Noire sold separately? I am hoping these will be online soon.
