by Lauren Luke: My Fierce Violets

The second installment of my LL palettes series ... again the wearability was great. I am kinda disappointed in the colours though ... when someone says fierce violets I want PURPLE! The mid-tone shade is kinda washed out and the darker one is really sooty. And the lip colours don't seem to match the eyes ... but the blush is, once again, fabulous! At least the overall pic is pretty!


All tools are MAC unless otherwise stated. LL = Lauren Luke, and all colours are from her Fierce Violets palette.

LL Turkish Night shadow dry in crease, along lower lashline and on outer third of lid; used 217 and 239 shadow brushes
LL Crushed Lilac shadow dry on inner two thirds of lid, wrapped around inner corner and swept up into crease; used 239 shadow brush

  1. I ordered the Violets and Glams to get pinks and purples. Turkish Night is not at all as amethyst as I had hoped for, for example.



Please be nice (that doesn't mean you have to like the look ... just be nice about not liking it!) ... no one likes a troll ;)
