FOTD- Poisoned Purple Orchids

I looooove purple eyeshadow. I like the way it looks with my green eyes and I just like it period. I have to force myself to wear other colors but purple. And now that I think about it I have more purple nail polishes than any other color as well, although I would probably say overall my favorite color is green. Anyway, I love purple eyeshadow and my favorite purple eyeshadow of them all is Two Faced Poison Orchid (see my blog post here). As I mention in my review I never buy single eyeshadows. And if I do I don't like to spend over around $8. Although this one costs $18, it was so worth it. What color of eyeshadow do you find yourself gravitating to?


This is Poison Orchid on the lid and lower lashline, Urban Decay Fishnet in the crease, and Essence holographic eyeshadow in Mystic Purple to highlight. On my lips is L'Oreal Colour Riche Caresse lipstick in Velvety Fuchsia.


This was way more sparkly in real life, but the flash only bounced off the sparkles on the from of my lid. Dumb flash. Look at the swatch picture here to get an idea of how sparkly it really is (I used a sticky base).

And just because, here is gratuitously cute picture of my pug.

  1. This is GORGEOUS!Purple is my favorite color for non-neutral looks. I've personally become a bronzes/golds/browns girl for the past year. I have so much eyeshadow yet I seem to wear the same ones over and over! Love the lip color.

  2. Lol @ "Dumb flash." I totally agree, but never have time to take pictures in good sunlight (so I'm always stuck with the dumb flash, too) I like this look on you (and you're rocking the bright lips!)

    1. Yay for bright lips! Yeah, I always find myself doing makeup at night or having to no time for outdoor pictures too. What I really need is a better camera!

  5. Your eyes look so wide and pretty! I think the purple is definitely working for you.

    I actually thought about giving you a look with purple and pink. You read my mind. LOL.

    1. Thank you! I didn't even really plan this look. I just threw it on really fast before going to work and I really loved how it turned out.
