Stars'n'Rockets with some Plum Dressing

I'm sure you've all noticed that I'm on a big bright and colourful eyeshadow kick at the moment and todays look isn't any different. I just got some purple eyeshadows so I came up with a purple eye look. By the way, my apologies on the lame title of the post. It's actually harder than it seems to come up with so many titles and names for different looks so kudos to all those bloggers and youtubers who manage to do it so well!

The colours I used are (clockwise from top left) Naked Lunch, Stars 'n' Rockets, Nocturnelle and Plum Dressing.

These shadows are all really pretty but I was disappointed in the pigmentation of Plum Dressing. It's very similar to MAC Cranberry eyeshadow except it has much more of a pink rather than red base. Unfortunately while Cranberry applies really intensely with one swipe, I really had to keep swiping Plum Dressing and then also wet my brush to get a decent application.

What I used to get this look:
MAC Prep + Prime eye in Medium all over the eye from lid to brow bone
NYX Jumbo eye pencil in Milk all over the lid
MAC Stars 'n' Rockets eye shadow over the first half of lid
MAC Plum Dressing eye shadow over last half of eye
MAC Nocturnelle eye shadow on outer v and crease
MAC Sketch eye shadow to darken outer v
MAC Naked Lunch eye shadow around tear duct
Urban Decay 24/7 glide on eye pencil in Zero on waterline
Covergirl Lashblast Fusion mascara on top and bottom lashes
Ardell Wispies lashes cut in half and applied to outer half of lid
I also applied Stars 'n' Rockets and Nocturnelle eye shadow to bottom lashline.
