Pure Luxe Fall Runway Collection

Pure Luxe came out with the Runway Collection for fall 2011. It consists of 8 eye shadows and 2 flashcubes which are basically a cosmetic grade glitters. I got 5 shadows and 1 flashcube - all in sample sizes as always.

Color drops of the eyeshadows/flashcube in the jars...

Swatched over Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy.

RSVP - ''Quite a chameleon of a color :)  It may look a little plain in the jar, but apply it and ~POW~ you get a smoky base, the more you blend, the smokier of a look you get.  No matter how you apply it, the finishing touch is an AWESOME metallic light pink highlight.'' I never knew I was gonna love this one as much as I do. They say it's a little plain in the jar, but the transformation is amazing. Smoky, muted lavender with pink shimmer. It's amazing.

Grand Finale - ''Rockin' smoky base, with a reddish pink highlight.  Amazing super micro red glitter highlight.  My absolute new favorite!!'' This one surprised me quite a bit. It looks brown in the jar and purple-ish once applied. It's pretty, but it didn't wow me.

Front Row - ''Smoky emerald green.  Metallic yellow-gold highlight.'' All the praise for the other shades and nothing for Front Row? This shade is stunning! Emerald green with golden highlights? Hell yeah!

Strut - ''Dark, smoky purple.  Medium metallic finish.  Shimmery and sexy :)'' It looks grey, but is really a muted purple. Maybe a bit too shimmery for my taste, but still pretty.

VIP - ''YOWZA!! You want a get noticed color??  HERE YOU GO!!  A kickin' bright plum shade.  Extra pearly finish.'' Hmm, this is a nice color, but I'm afraid it wouldn't work with my green eyes. I bet it would look awesome on brown-eyed ladies though. Quite rich color, I like it.

Stiletto - ''Bold, deep fuschia, packed with a sparkling punch!'' This flashcube is full of awesome. It looks so much better in real life, I only have troubles applying it. I guess I'll have to use a little eyelash glue to keep it on my lids.

I'd never guess just by looking at the photos/jars, but my favorite are RSVP and Front Row. And yours?

Thanks for looking and commenting!

  3. I went to their website and there is soooo many colors, I think that some people lost a chance of knowing nice products because wants to wear a brand not the product.

  7. I think you should try VIP. I've got green eyes, too, and colors like that usually look pretty good on me. I guess it's the red in it, since red and green are contrasting colors, it makes my eyes look greener than they are.
