2 Looks Using Maybelline EyeStudio in Purple Icon


I caved in- yup. My EyeStudio palettes are almost run out- I hit pan a long time ago. I truly love the two I have so why not try them in other colors, right? I got Purple Icon because the colors look so shiny just like my others ones- but this palette just isn't what I thought it would be. The very second color- disappointed me greatly.


It seems like such a pretty light lilac kind of color- but it just looks really powdery and gray on my lid and that's over primer! I could probably give it another try over NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk- I can't possibly give up... lol. But- I ended up covering it with Glamour Doll Eyes in Hollywood on my lid because I just did not like it at all. That's why there's two looks today.


The highlight, as you can see, if very frosty. I really don't mind it at all- I liked it actually.  The third color on the palette is my favorite, I used it all over from my crease to my highlight and under my eye. It's such a pretty purple!! Then I used the darkest in my crease alone for some depth. The next day, (below), I did the same look but without the glitter. Instead I used the highlight color on my lid too. Sorry for not curling my lashes... lol


All in all, I really liked the palette. I plan to keep playing with it. It makes my eyes look so smoky in person, which is something I don't do as often as I used to. Oh, btw, the darkest purple in the palette does not come off that shiny on my lid as it does in the palette. Somehow, this palette looks so shiny but only two out of four really are.


 Once blended in with the other colors there's not much of a difference, so if you like frosty this is a good palette for you! Till next time. =-)

  5. This is very pretty on you! I had a couple of these Maybelline palettes and I liked them a lot, but they keep breaking on me! The eyeshadow must be very soft...

    1. I believe you- the shadow is very soft! They break on me too but I have them in a place where they don't get moved much just to help them not break as much. I'm glad you liked the look!

  6. Bummer that the colors aren't what they look like in the pan. :( I love all the looks you put together though. Purple with brown eyes is always a WIN.

  14. Such pretty colours, even if the second colour wasn't as nicely textured and pigmented as you'd hoped for. I think the lid colour is beautiful though, love the glitter. You have amazing lashes too!
