September is birthday month (#teamvirgo) so I picked up two colours for my palette this month. I resisted the urge to buy two purples this month. MAC has a great range of purples, and I am obsessed with purple but I am trying to create a palette of colours that I will wear regularly and so far so good.
So, I picked up Satin Taupe. The texture is a frost but it is very smooth to apply and blends very easily. I am going to be getting a lot of use from this colour as it is neutral that I can highlight with and whilst it provides some interest to the lid it does not battle with a statement lip.
Fig is the colour that I have been resisting for the longest time… but well it is my birthday month so that was my excuse to pick it up. It is the perfect matte imperial purple shade. Great on it’s own, and my prefered alternative to black for providing some intensity to the corner of the eye. It registers as purple on the lid and works great with warm and cool tones. The perfect neutral deep purple, I am going to be having a lot of fun with this…. happy birthday month to me!!!
