Hey y’all, it’s been about two weeks since I’ve posted – can’t believe it! I’ve been so busy that I haven’t had any time! But I’m back in action now..
Today I wanted to do something different and fun, I picked a colour theme, and a tough one I might add! Purple. While purple isn’t my favourite colour, it often makes an appearance in my wardrobe and makeup collection, since it’s such a fun, statement colour. Today I’ve assembled some of the top purple picks in my life!
Joe Fresh Leggings – This ones a funny one, so I’ll start with it. I LOVE these leggings for working out, they’re so comfortable, they’re inexpensive and they come in great colours. I just got this pair (bottom of photo) on sale last week for $16 (regular $24/Cdn).
NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Amethyst – I got this for free at Osheaga from NYX’s pop-up beauty truck, and while it isn’t going to be my go-to lipstick anytime soon, I highly recommend this particular formula and suggest picking one up! Also, I think this will make a bomb eyeliner if I use an angled brush…stay tuned! ($10/Cdn)
Absolute New York Flawless Face Foundation Primer in Lavender – I got this for free at Generation Beauty, and have just recently been putting it to the test. Typically purple primers are for dull, yellow, pale skin, and while I don’t have that, I just like the way this blends into my skin and adds some brightness into my complexion! ($8.99/Cdn)
Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer in Pore Minimizing – This is my favourite of the Smashbox primers! First off, the packaging is too cute, and secondly, it works wonders! I love the way it fills in my pores, and it helps my foundation last forever. ($50/Cdn)
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion – While we’re on the topic of primers, this eyeshadow primer is amazing. I love the brush that comes inside to swipe over your eyelids, and again, the packaging doesn’t hurt! ($26/Cdn)
Mac Eyeshadow in Star Violet – This ones new to my makeup collection, my BFF gave it to me as she wasn’t using. I think it’s going to be the perfect colour for Fall! ($19/Cdn)
Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Deep Dive Cleaning Gel – I got a few of these as free samples this summer, and I love it. They’re perfect size for travel, the packaging is cute, it smells nice, and it does a great job at removing your full face of makeup! ($30/Cdn)
Precision Beauty Powder Brush – I freaking love this brush. I got it for like $9 at Winners, and it’s PERFECT for blending out my contour and bronzer so it looks more natural.
Tarte Tartelette in Bloom Eyeshadow Palette – Save the best for last!! When I first saw the packaging on this beauty, I had to have it before I even saw what was inside. Then I saw the shadows, and was sold. I love, love, love Tarte so much. These eyeshadows are beautiful, and this palette just looks beautiful in my collection. ($54/Cdn)
And there you have it, some fun purples! What’s your favourite colour?
I’m just winging it. My life, my eyeliner, everything!
