Royal Purple EOTD: Fyrinnae Shinigami, Taylor Made Minerals Chintzy, Stila Barbie Loves Stila Palette

10:29 AM

Royal Blue has never been one of my favorite colors, let alone something I would consider using for an eyeshadow...until now. I found the cutest shirt at Forever 21 for $11 the other day, and as a result, I had to figure out what type of an eyeshadow combination I was going to use with it. Of course, the shirt was the deepest royal blue, almost purple, that I had in my wardrobe, so this was going to be a new venture for me! I decided this was a great opportunity to use some of the newest colors since my birthday, including the purple/blue shade from the Barbie Loves Stila palette and Fyrinnae's Shinigami that I just ordered from their Halloween 2009 collection. Throw in a little Taylor Made Minerals Chintzy, and your done!

Below is an old picture from the first Taylor Made Mineral order I received - Chintzy is in the top row, 2nd from the left. It is a very pale ivory/gold shade with tiny golden microglitter in it. This is a gorgeous eyeliner, and now that Fyrinnae has the Pixie Epoxy, this eyeshadow is a dream to apply. It used to have fallout everywhere, otherwise, and as a result, it has been sitting in my makeup drawer for months! The Fyrinnae and Stila are also pictured below, as a friendly reminder of the colors.

To create this look, I first put UDPP all over the eyelids, topped off with Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy.

Bare Escentuals Foundation "Fair"
Bare Escentuals Feather Light Tinted Mineral Veil
Laura Geller Blush 'n Brighten "Golden Apricot" - contour
Laura Geller Blush 'n Brighten "Pink Grapefruit" - blush

Urban Decay Primer Potion - all over lid
Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy - all over lid
Taylor Made Minerals "Chintzy" - inner corner lid
Stila "Barbie Loves Stila Palette" - deep purple/blue - middle of lid
Fyrinnae "Shinigami" - outer corner blended into contour/lower lashline
MAC Pigment "Vanilla" - highlight
L'oreal HIP Chrome Eyeliner "Gold Charge" - lower lashline
Mary Kate & Ashley Liquid Eyeliner "Black"
Rimmel Volume Mousse Mascara "Extreme Black"
Individual false eyelashes applied to outer corners of upper lashline

Revlon Colorstay Lipstick "Rich Raisin"

This was definitely outside the box for me, but I loved the colors - what fun for fall, and definitely away from the neutrals I'm so used to wearing. Thanks for taking a look!

  1. what is your favorite all time mascara???

  2. KathyinFL,

    I would have to say LashBlast (of those I've tried so far), but right now I'm trying out the new Rimmel Volume Max (it's in a hot pink tube), and I really like it. After another week or so of trial, I'll do a review and let you all know.

    I'll be honest, I think Rimmel has some fantastic mascaras, especially for the price. I love the Volume Mousse I've been using recently, but the newer Volume Max doesn't get as clumpy (so far), so I'm really liking it. Hope this helps!

  3. Love your pictures, they are always very clear, show the colours very well. Can I ask which camera (or what tricks) you use?

  4. Thanks Halifax! I use my Canon Cybershot my husband got me for Christmas last year. I love it - it's a great camera, takes fantastic pictures, etc. I use photobucket to crop out any of the miscellaneous background things I don't need, but other than that, no other adjustments are made. I take the pictures in my bathroom with a flash, especially since I take a lot of pictures with shimmery/sparkly products, and that's about the only way I can get a clear picture. If I'm lucky enough to be at home when the sun's out, I'll take the pictures in natural lighting, but to be honest, that doesn't happen very much, unfortunately!

    Thank you again for the compliments! It means a lot :)

  5. Thanks for getting back to me. I'm in the market for a new camera. Mine can't take close up pics, very annoying.

    I'm the same way, have to take pics at night with flash :-)

  6. I love your site. Just wanted to say that.
