FOTD: Using Pure Luxe Eyeshadows in "Amethyst" & "Bad Girl"


**EDIT** below are only SAMPLES of the Pure Luxe eyeshadows, CORINNE mentioned they don't look like there's a lot, but below are the samples so if you order the 5gram jar of any color, that's a good amount, AND a little goes a long way, I have used the samples 4 times already and as you can see I STILL have a lot!

Here is a look I did using some of my favorite eyeshadows from Pure Luxe, "Amethyst" and "Bad Girl". I also used my Fafi blush in "Hipness", and at first I also used the "Fun N' Sexy" lipstick but it was bit too overpowering for the eyes (in person) so I opted for MAC Slimshine in "Intimidate", it looks brighter in these pics, but it's a lot softer in person...

I also used "Cash Flow" PP (paint pot), but you can't see it. :(

***I had questions regarding how to foil pigments (apply them wet) so that they adhere longer as well as adding a lot of vibrancy, so I will do a tutorial on these hopefully tonight.

What I used:
- Sue Devitt Face Primer
- MAC StudioFix Concealer in NC30
- Silk Naturals Mineral Foundation

- MAC Blush from the Fafi Collection in "Hipness"


- MAC Paint Pot in "Soft Ochre" all over lid
- MAC Paint Pot in "Cash Flow" all over lid
- MAC e/s in "Mancatcher" as base on lower half of the lid
- Pure Luxe Eyeshadow in "Amethyst" applied wet all over lid until the crease
- Pure Luxe Eyeshadow in "Bad Girl" applied 3/4 of the way towards the outer-V
- MAC e/s in "Knight Divine" and Milani e/s in "Storm" on outer-V and to deepen the crease
- NYX Dark Shimmery Purple from the "Lake Moss" Palette on outer-V
- MAC e/s in "Rondelle" as highlight
- Indelible Gel Eyeliner in Black Out
- L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara
- MAC "Violet" Pigment on lower lashline (applied wet)

- MAC Slimshine in "Intimidate"
- MAC Lipglass in "Negligee"

Corrine said...

are the jars about that full when you get them or are those just the samples? or... have you used them up? it doesn't look like you get a lot. you look fab though

(g)ezebel said... nessa, the purple shadows look sooooo good on you!! dammit, you're gonna make me get on Pure Luxe and buy everything i see, aren't you. *weak shopping addict sigh*

ilurvemakeup said...

Zomg... trying so hard not to buy anymore things online lol I LOVE this look and the color payoff is breathtaking!!!!!!!! What MAC shadows would you say are similar to those colors you used with Pure Luxe? I'd rather get a look alike at my pro store than having hubby see my online bill... again LOL You know what I mean right??? lol <3

Ang maganda naman! Sobrang maganda! <3

Kimberly said...

love it! i was going to pick up some slimshines at the MAC store when i was there for fafi but i totally forgot.. that always happens to me when i go there with another person with me :] i was already thinking of getting intimidate but now i definitely want it. i thought cash flow was the green/gold looking paint pot.. do you mean nice vice?

Elizabeth said...

i love purples on you it suits you really well. I love how vibrant the colors look too.

Looking gorgeous as always ;)

Jackii said...

Added your link to my page =). Just wanted everyone to know how awesomely helpful you are. Beautiful look!

Vanessa said...

Mandy- Awww thank you mama! You are the sweetest! :)

Xuanie- Thank you! I know purple is one of my favorite colors!

Sheila- Thank you gorgeous! I love all shades of purple!

Thushaa- Thank you! Hope you are having an awesome weekend!

Mandy- I have not shipped out the samples yet, did you get my email? I was short on jars so I ordered new ones which should be arriving soon (hopefully this coming week) and I will send it out then, and yes you will get tracking info! Sorry for the delay!

Corinne- The put a decent amount after all they are SAMPLES that I got, those are not the full sizes, and a little goes a LONG way!

Gezebel- HAHHAHAHA aren't we all enablers???? LOL. None of us help each other out with this addiction! hahaha, I know I need to seek some help, LOL!

Lurve- Thanks! Hmm I would say Violet, Grape, and Viz-a-violet pigments are the closes to these shades of Pure Luxe. HAHAHAHAH and I totally know what you mean about "hiding your purchases", LOL, I gotta do it ALL THE TIME! HAHAHA

Kimberly- No I used Cash Flow, the goldish/green, I used it as a base for a neutral shimmer on my brow bone (that's why I mentioned you can't see it) esp. since I put "Rondelle" e/s over it...but I originally used it to give some shimmer to the lids....

Liz- Thanks lovely!

Mrs. Lynne said...

Sis. No matter how many purple eyeshadows you have and use, the looks are so individual in their own presentation. You know you rock purple girl!
