I only wanted to see you underneath the purple rain. I could not stop thinking about the lyrics to Prince's "Purple Rain" while looking at these beautiful lilac and iris colors. I saw him sing that little ditty live and it was magical. While I certainly can't pull off a purple velvet suit, I'm all about the purple eyeshadow. These are some of my new favorites.
Lancôme's all-in-one 5 shadow palette in Amethyst Glam is pretty spectacular. Each color serves a purpose: highlighter, all over, lid, crease and liner. I have not used them all together or for their specific purposes. I blend haphazardly to create my own signature purple.
Lancôme claims an 8 hour wear time, I think maybe it's about half that if you've got an easy-does-it daytime look. If you go a little more heavy-handed you might be able to sneak an extra hour or two before it begins to fade. However, the fade-out looks just as fantastic as the bright pigment when you first layer it on. It's so easy to wear these colors, even if you aren't a huge purple fan, there is no risk of looking like a bruised mess (I have worn shadow before where people asked if I had a black eye... not good).
