Butterfly Plums EotD

I used the new Kat Von D Chrysalis palette for this Eye (or is it eyes?) of the Day.

I used the shimmery silvery mauve shade (called "transition") on the moving lid, the sparkling purple shade (called "mezzanine") in the crease, and the matte cream shade (called "lifelike") under the brow.  I also used Sonia Kashuk gel liner in Ebony and L'Oreal Voluminous Butterfly mascara.

Then, later in the day, I decided to add some of the darkest plum (called "hybrid moments") to the outer corner and lower lashline to make it all smokey and dramatic and whatnot.

I'm still trying to figure out if the names of the shadows in this palette are supposed to be butterfly-related.


  1. I love this eye look so much! I have got to look into getting my hands on this palette!

  2. I love this look on you!
    Great post ... i think i need to start wearing purple eye shadow.

  3. I think purple eyeshadow is awfully fun.

  4. I bought this without even seeing any blogger swatches of it. The colors are right up my alley, and I'm a sucker for butterfly stuff.

  5. That as you know is something that we have in common, the love of butterflies! That is one of the main reasons I want this palette also.....LOL!!

  6. Totally awesome packaging always gets me.

  7. Loving these shimmery purples on you! So pretty :)
