New Favorite Purple - MAC's Violet Pigment

Monday, October 25, 2010

Well I meant to get this picture up much earlier, because I think I actually wore this at the beginning of last weekend, but you know how it goes - life never seems to go as you plan. The point of this post is to show off my favorite new purple, MAC's Violet. I know I'm the purple queen (my roommate teases me about it in fact) but I swear each one I have is in actuality different. Maybe not a lot different, but they're all different. 

What's so amazing about this one is as vibrant as it looks in this picture? That's how it looks in real life. It's not a matter of flash or nice angles; Violet is really just that amazing. I tend to use something like NYX's Jumbo Pencil in Purple underneath, just to give it something to stick to, but the color doesn't need the enhancing. It's almost like anything I do still has it look amazing. And since I got it at the CCO at Potomac Mills it's still in the old larger packaging, so I'm going to have this color for a LONG time. Thanks goodness (though for the rest of you out there Violet is a permanent color, so it shouldn't be going anywhere any time soon). 

If I remember correctly I probably used MAC's Soft Brown to soften the line in my crease and then my new shadow Graphology (which is LE) to deepen the outer V. I could have gone quite a bit darker and added in some black, but when I'm going out in the day I try to keep those tendencies under control (smile). Hope you enjoy!
