After I posted my first look with the NARSissist eyeshadow palette, my friend Andrea requested a look with the silvery/purple shades. Well, ask and ye shall receive!

As usual, I started with the NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Primer. Then, using the NARSissist eyeshadow palette, I took Lhasa and shaded just along my upper lash line, and then angled it up at the outer corner and filled the area in, like an obtuse triangle.

I also used it under the lower lashline. Then I took Ashes to Ashes and filled in the rest of the lid, up to the crease. Then I used Brousse #2 in the crease, to add some depth.

For liner, I took Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink and smudged it into my lash line. I really got it down in there, so the line wasn’t defined, it was a little subtle and smudgy. I used Rouge Bunny Rouge Eye Kohl in Salome on my lower waterline. I finished my eyes up with L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara.

Keeping to the cool tones, I used NARS Mata Hari blush, and then finished off the look with my recently acquired Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Levres in Pourpre Preview.

  1. GORGEOUS. I'm a big fan of purples, and this eyeshadow + lipstick look is just my style. You look great in purple lip color.

    • Lhasa reminds me a lot of the purple-y color you were wearing the Friday night I was at Michelle's. Which I loved, too. 🙂 I don't normally like glosses, but the YSL Glossy Stains are really interesting and last forever. This color is more purple than it was pulling in the photos—the one without the flash is more accurate—and I'd definitely recommend it!

  2. I love the look and I love it that I inspired this post! It's nice to see you in a glossy lip. I know how you love matte lip colors, but the combination of the purple, which is so your color and the glossy factor is just really really pretty.

    • It was a direct request, how could I refuse?!

      It's true, for reds, I generally prefer red, but in other colors, I'm okay with more satin finishes. I don't love gloss because of the gloopy, sticky feel on that so many of them have, or how my hair gets stuck in it and then drags across my face and I have lines of gloss adorning my cheeks… One thing I do like to do with gloss, though, is use a lip stain and then put some non-sticky gloss over, usually on the clearer side. But the YSL Glossy Stains I almost don't mind. I have a couple of them and am always surprised at how well I tolerate the feel over the course of the day. And they last forever and do leave nice color even when the gloss wears off. Maybelline and L'Oreal have their own versions of this formula, but I don't know what color would correspond to the one I'm wearing. It's more purple than it looks in a lot of the photos; the one without flash is probably most accurate. But I really like it!

    • Thank you! Got it done before I went away. She surprised me with the red; we hadn't discussed what color the highlights were going to be. 🙂

      • I'm considering getting highlights again when I can afford to get my hair colored in a salon again. I'm still fine with coloring my hair in the bathroom with something I got at the drugstore, but I don't trust myself to do highlights, because I'm not going for the punk blond stripe look I used to do in camp and college anymore.) But I still am always drawn to reddish/auburn colors and I really like the way I look in them.
