A Pop of Purple - A Colour Story

Tuesday, 17 June 2014

Presenting you my very first colour story! This post focuses on some of my favourite products that are... you guessed it! Purple! I hope you enjoy and I would love to hear if you would like me to do more posts like this (with other colours as a focus in the future) in the comments below!

1. Rimmel Scandaleyes Eye Shadow Stick in 006 - Paranoid Purple.
High impact colour Precision tip applicator Ultra soft formula glides on smoothly High-shine and luminous finish.

A beautiful deep purple eye crayon that can be worn as an eye shadow or liner. These Scandaleyes Eye Shadow Sticks blend well, don't crease and don't wear off during the day. A really impressive product by Rimmel!

$12.95 AUD (3.25g) from Priceline, Kmart, Big W, Target, Chemist Warehouse, Woolworths, Coles, and My Chemist.

2. Stella Eau De Parfum by Stella McCartney.
The first fragrance by Stella McCartney, inspired by the fragile beauty of a rose, is contrasted by sensuality of amber. Playing with the opposition of the masculine and the feminine as well. The bottle's lines, both precious and sharp, frame a seemingly infinite plum dégrade.

I love this fragrance so much. It's an all time favourite of mine. It wears beautifully and gets me lots of compliments. 

$83 AUD (30ml) from David Jones, Myer and other fragrance stores.

3. M.A.C Lipstick in 'Up The Amp'.
This is one of my favourite lipsticks! Not for everyone but if you wear it with confidence you can pull it off!

Up The Amp lipstick is an Amplified Creme finish that has amazing colour payoff and is super creamy on the lips.

$36 AUD (3g) from M.A.C stores and counters.

4. Next Stop... The Bikini Zone by O.P.I.
This nail polish is an amethyst toned pewter, and believe me it is stun-ing! It wears beautifully and makes a statement without being too in your face.

$19.95 AUD (15ml) and is available from selected Myer and David Jones stores. 

5. Essence Longlasting Eye Pencil in 16 - Coolest Chic.
The eye pencil provides long-lasting and intense colour for your eyes. And the innovative twist mechanism makes it super easy to apply.

A fabulous soft, non-dragging, workable and long wearing eyeliner pencil. I cannot recommend this eyeliner range enough; they are more than affordable and perform better than a lot of high-end liners I have used.

$2.75 (0.34g) from Target and Priceline.

6. Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in 'Shameless'.
The innovative hybrid is infused with vibrant pigments to give you gorgeous, luxurious colour, while the Triple Moisture Complex of Shea, Mango and Coconut Butter envelops lips in plush comfort leaving them smooth and baby soft. The convenience of a crayon, the comfort of a balm with rich velvet finish - all you need for standout lips!

If you want a dark berry lip colour that provides hydration, this is for you! It wears beautifully and doesn't drag on the lips at all on application. A seriously impressive product from Revlon!

$17.95 (2.7g) from Myer, David Jones, Priceline, Big W, Target and selected chemists.

7. Ulta 3 Lip Paint in Loud Purple.
If this isn't the cheapest lip product that packs a punch than I don't know what is! A beautiful purple lip colour with a glossy finish that lasts about 3 hours on the lips before you need to re-apply.

Ulta 3 Lip Paints retail for $5.95 AUD and are available from Terry White Chemists and wherever else you find Ulta 3 products.

8. Covergirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in 300 - Vio Last.
Dare to go topless with our new nail polish formula that combines a base coat, high gloss colour, and a chip-resistant top coat in one simple step.

Vio-last is a vibrant purple that is suitable for all year round wear. It is bright and pretty for the warmer months, but also has some depth that is suitable for cooler months.

$6.95 (11ml) from Priceline, Big W, Kmart, Target, Coles, Woolworths, and selected pharmacies and grocers.

9. Elle Eau de Parfum by Yves Saint Laurent.
A feminine fragrance featuring a blend of woody and floral notes. Includes peony, pink berries and patchouli.

An absolutely stunning fragrance that carries you through from day to night. Elle Eau de Parfum by Yves Saint Laurent is a heavy scent that lasts for hours upon hours once applied.

$125 AUD (50ml) from David Jones, Myer and selected pharmacies and fragrance stores.
