Best Purple Eyeshadows, Lipsticks and Blush
It’s a Makeup Wars Monday! Today I’m sharing the Best Purple Eyeshadows, Lipsticks and Blush. It’s no secret I love the color purple. I’ve had a custom purple bed made, I’ve dyed my hair purple, and I’ve got a lot of purple makeup. Below are my favorites. Most of these are still available. A few may have been discontinued or are LE. Many are vegan.
PR + purchased by me.
Best Purple Eyeshadows
I swatched these on Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer in Light, which is yellow toned. So these may appear slightly warmer toned than they actually are.
Row 1 Sugarpill Frostine – Sugarpill Poison Plum – Aromaleigh Phaedra
Row 2 Geek Chic Boop – Geek Chic Perfectly Normal Human Worm Baby – Geek Chic Always Spring
Row 3 Fyrinnae Snowboarding – Fyrinnae Because Cats – Fyrinnae Cuddlefish
Row 4 Silk Naturals Scream – My Pretty Zombie Anthrax – My Pretty Zombie Mad Cow
Row 5 Aromaleigh Carina- Aromaleigh Alkyone- Kat Von D Danzig
Row 6 Urban Decay Urban – Kat Von D Meow – Kat Von D Dope
I like to use Frostine to blend out the edges of other purples or as a highlight. Poison Plum is a favored crease shade. Boom is an amazing lid color. Meow and Dope are great crease shades on my hooded eyes. Urban and Danzig are very intense colors. Because Cats, Snowboarding, Anthrax and Mad Cow are beautiful unique shades.

Crumb Cake is a cream mauve brown shade. Tease is a purple taupe brown matte. Petal Pusher is a pinky mauve taupe matte. These three are great as transition shades with purple.

1. Makeup Geek Celestial – this is my go-to highlighter. I’m working on panning it. It’s stunning.

Best Purple Lip Pencils
L to R Colour Pop Brills – Urban Decay Pandemonium – Nyx Run the World – Nyx Oh Put it On – Nyx Jet Set
I basically have 5 go-to lip pencils that I use with purple lipsticks. Brills is great for softer purple colors, like Violate or Twitch. Pandemonium is for more midtone to true purples. I like Run the World with pinky-purples. Oh Put it On is perfect for vampy purples. I use Jet Set with purples that I want to bring out the blue tones.
Oh Put it On is a good cruelty free dupe for MAC Grape pencil. Love it!
Best Purple Lipsticks
1. Glamorous Chicks Love Potion – a sparkly purple metallic.
2. Urban Decay Violate – a dusty mauve purple creme that I like for a MLBB type shade.
3. Urban Decay Asphyxia – sheer lavender with a blue shift, great for layering.
4. Urban Decay Mad Hatter – bright purple sparkle, works best layered.
5. Urban Decay Twitch – Lavender purple with warm undertones.
6. Nyx Wisteria – Lavender purple with cool undertones.
7. Urban Decay Speedball – rich grape jelly purple.

5. Geek Chic Moon Princess Guardian – deep royal purple.
Best Purple Nail Polish
And while I didn’t have time to go through all of my nail polish, I had to give a shout out to the best purple I own – KBShimmer Orchidding Me? It’s a stunning purple.
