Sunday Stash Shopping #35: Understated Purples

I have this mini Dior eye palette forever. It’s even depotted, sitting nicely with my NARS blushes. I decided to depot the NARS blushes because the cases were getting sticky, and I had to say goodbye to Madly because I killed it. I totally blame NARS for its shitty packaging, forcing me to depot. But you know, it’s always fun to blame others than to admit that I also did a shitty job in getting the pan out. Anyhoo… For this simple look, I used the old Dior quint in Stylish Move on the eyes, NARS Orgasm as blush, and Rouge Dior Nude in Charnelle on the lips. I used Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua as base because I’m determined to use this up, and instead of using a black liner, I chose MAC Phone Number (a grey pencil).

Basically, Stylish Move is a quint of a light purple taupe, a medium purple, a dark purple, a white and a light pink. I used the light taupe on my lids, a medium purple on the outer corner before defining it further with the dark purple. After everything’s done, I used a mixture of the white and pink and dabbed it on my lids to lighten the area and increase the contrast against the darker outer corner. Here is how the eyes look.

This is a softer take on purples and soft pink, which I find is very wearable even on my yellow based skin tone. Dior Charnelle is also a soft pink lipstick that complements this look perfectly, while NARS Orgasm is a pinky peach that warms up the whole look. Here are some other shots, and a happy photo bomb at the end 🙂

At the time you’re reading this post, I’m either in the hospital delivering, or have already delivered. I’ve been scheduling posts so far, so that the blog still keeps going while I’m gone. I’ll post a little update on the little bub later, when I’m ready 🙂 I hope you liked today’s look! Happy Sunday people.

    • Lily

      Thanks Tracy and yes they grow up so fast! Time should slow down. ..

  • This look is soooo pretty!! And you with your girls are adorable! I’ve been lucky with my Nars packaging so far, none have gone sticky yet, but I recently discovered the Becca packaging does the same thing!! Grrrr!

    • Lily

      Thank you! And sorry to hear about the Becca packaging. It’s so annoying when that happens.

  • Yay, way to go, Lily! I love Stylish Move on you! It’s actually a lot less frosty than some purple Dior quints. The girls are adorable! <3

    • Lily

      Thank you Sunny! Stylish Move is not frosty at all. I contemplated on getting the full size but then, hey I’d be happy if I can hit pan on this one. Lol!

  • Liz

    Aw! You look beautiful and so do your little ones. Love that last shot. 🙂 And I cant’ believe you depotted a mini Dior, lol. I’d probably cut a finger off by accident or destroy the entire thing in the process!

    • Lily

      Thanks Liz… and yes, I depotted that mini Dior quint. I think I was at a murderous stage when it comes to makeup and I just wanted to rip them naked and put them in my empty palettes. I’ve toned down a lot though. LOL!

  • Love the last two pictures so much! Beautiful <3

    • Lily

      Thank you Lena 🙂

  • Aw, those last two snaps are so adorable 😀 And you look amazing, Lily, wowza, loving these colors on you.

    • Lily

      Thanks Melissa 🙂

  • Beautiful look, Lily! I use one of my newer Shiseido trios for something like this, and it’s really made me start to love plum.Your daughters are beautiful 🙂 One of them looks exactly like a mini you!
