MAKEUP WARS: Perfect Purple Shadows

It's time for another Makeup Wars, and this week's is a topic I couldn't wait to talk about: purple shadows! Great for just about any eye color, purples can be a fun way to add color to an otherwise neutral look, or go completely wild with something more bold and bright. Here are some of my favorites for doing a little bit of both!

Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette: What I consider to be the ultimate palette for the purple-lover, the Chocolate Bar Palette has a great mix of neutrals and plums, with a great array of textures to boot!

Madison Street Beauty Pigment in Amethyst and Azure: With so many pigments to choose from, it wasn't hard to find two purples from Madison Street Beauty to fall in love with. Amethyst is a deep grape, while Azure is a shimmery periwinkle. Both are richly pigmented and apply smoothly.

Makeup Geek Shadow in Drama Queen: Just because they're affordable, doesn't mean the Makeup Geek line sacrifices quality with their shadows. While the entire line is fantastic, one of my favorite shades includes Drama Queen - a deep blackened plum.

Rimmel ScandalEyes Shadow Stick in Paranoid Purple: When talking shadows, you can't forget the shadow pencils, and Rimmel has some of the best quality available for the price. The entire line of ScandalEyes Shadow Sticks applies smoothly, giving ample time to build and work with before ultimately setting and staying in place throughout the day. Paranoid Purple in particular is a rich gem-toned purple perfect for doing anything from lining to all-over shading.

Makeup Geek Shadow in Sensuous: With a shadow line so good (and extensive), I couldn't pick just one purple from Makeup Geek! The gold shift in the shade Sensuous adds a little interest without detracting from the beautiful shimmery purple base.

Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in Dare: Although I'm relatively new to the Colourpop line, I fell in love with my first order, and had to have more. Within my second helping, I found the shade Dare - a mid-tone purple with iridescent shimmer. It's the ultimate purple for the bright-lover!

ELF Smudge Pot in Poppin' Purple: For those who like their cream shadows potted, this formula is an old favorite. Poppin' Purple is a deep smoked plum that's great for lining or applying all over the lid for an ultra-blackened plum look.

What are your favorite purples?
