Eternal Hunt Du Jour 8.27

I finally gave in and bought MUFE e/s in 92, the ultimate purple. I have to say that I still am on the hunt for the perfect purple. Funny enough, the color purple that is pictured is the excat purple I am looking for. In person this is the true color, has a redder base, not as true blue purple. As you can see the picture without the flash is more of a true representation.

As for the formulation of the shadow, it is beautiful. Silky, matte, extremeley pigmented and easy to blend. Why cant I find the perfect purple? Does it not exist??


I want it to look like this on my eyes, this is with a flash, it does not look like this in real life!
true color representation...


Any suggestions on finding the perfect perfect purple?

  2. I am always on the hunt for the perfect purple. I bought this one and for me it is hard to work with. I can't get it to blend. Maybe it is because I use the Urban Decay Primer potion. It is pretty though..

  3. How about trying it with a base underneath, I think the Shiseido hydro-powder eyesheshadow in purple might be a good one to use.

  4. I don't know if this will help but there is this website called theshespace.com and under "pigments for eyes" there is a purple called "no scruples" towards the bottom of the page. I bought a sample of this a while back and I think it's one of the prettiest purples ever. It's not matte so I don't know if it'll fit the bill but that might be a good site for you to check out! xoxox

  5. I've been buying so many purples lately and I haven't found the perfect one yet. Today I went to MAC and bought Violet Trance from the new collection. It looks like a vibrant blue purple in the pot, I hope it looks like that on my eyes.. I also got Parfait Amour to match it with.. which is a very pretty purple. Urban decay has new GORGEOUS shades of purple in their deluxe eye shadows. "Freakshow" and "Frigid".. totally lusting those!

  8. Wow, that shadow looks incredible! I understand the hype now! I agree, the colour in the first pics is nicer. Don't have too many brands to compare with since there aren't so many in Argentina, but I *think* a good match is Purple Haze or Fig.1 by MAC.
