Sparkly Purple!

One of my favorite shadows of all time is Darling Girl Cosmetics "Here's Johnny".  It's a gorgeous, very sparkly purple.  Whenever I wear it, I spend entirely too much time looking in the mirror with my eyes half closed admiring the beauty that it is.  I never like taking it off at night!  My husband also loves it, and always comments on how awesome it is when I wear it.  I wore this makeup for date night last week.

Awesome earrings, right?

Eyes: Darling Girl Cosmetics Glitter Glue on the lid and lower lash line
          Darling Girl Cosmetics loose shadow in Here's Johnny on the lid and lower lash line
          NARS Dual-Intensity Blush Duo in Fervor (the deeper shade) in the crease
          Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Eyeshadow in Bone (matte ivory) under the brow
          Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On eyeliner in Perversion (black) on the waterlines
          Mally Volumizing Mascara

Cheeks: NARS Dual-Intensity Blush Duo in Fervor (the light peachy shade)

Lips: I can't remember.  Dangit.  That's a nice color.

I quite like how the warm crease color contrasts with the cool-toned purple.

Here's a blurry pic of Here's Johnny to show off the sparkle:

Gah.  I love it so much!

How do you feel about sparkly colorful eyeshadow?  Pretty, but not your thing?  Wear the heck out of it?


  1. Gosh, Here's Johnny is gorgeous! Sparkly purples are so perfect on you. Though the name freaks me out because the Shining is the one scary movie I just cannot watch! :)

  2. I love scary movies. The Shining definitely fits into that category. It is creeeeepy. Thanks, Jen!

  3. I've never heard of Darling Girl Cosmetics, but wow, that's a beautiful shadow! The darker blush color is perfect for the crease. Love this look!

  4. I discovered Darling Girl by reading Phyrra's blog. Now I love window shopping on the Darling Girl website. The colors are so pretty!

  5. Gorgeous! I'm not big on color and sparkle for myself but I love it on you!

  6. I know that sparkly purple is not everyone's cup of tea, but I'm happy that you enjoy it on other people! Thank you , Tanya!

    Yes, awesome earrings! The sparkly purple shadow is pretty freakin' cool!

  8. Sparkly purple eyeshadow + cool earrings = happiness.

  9. Beautiful! I think I have a sample of "Here's Johnny" in my drawer, need to dig it out. I like purple.

  10. Indie companies make some of the most unique shades, don't they? So awesome.
