Purple Reign FOTD

Happy New Year!! Hope your New Year’s Eve was eventful. 🙂

One of my Beauty new year’s resolution is to rediscover products in my stash.  I decided it was time “rediscover” my purple e/s. The NYX Purple ultra pearl mania is one of my favorite purple e/s.  The shimmer is gorgeous.  I foiled it using MAC’s Fix +, which gave the shimmer, a more brilliant shine.

Another product that I discovered was the Waveline fluidline (f/l).  The color is similar to blue ink (with a slight purple tint.) I bought this product when MAC had the 15% Friends and Family sale.  I think the fluidlines are better bases than the paint pots because the crease factor is non-existent.  The only problem I see is that they can stain the skin, so I always use the matte gel as base for the fluidline.

    God, your lips look incredible. I wish I could wear that color but I think I’d end up looking like a blow-up doll!

    Thank you ladies.

    @kia, try it again. Use a thicker layer of f/l (2 or 3 brush swipe/pack).

    purple gorgeousness! hmmm maybe fluidlines would work better for me as a base when foiling. when I did it, it dried too fast & e/s fell off.. brows r hot!
