Smokey Purple Flash

I decided to play with makeup for fun today, not planing to film a tutorial or anything like that. I haven’t done that in awhile, and I really need to, it’s fun and relaxing! Originally I was just going to wear UD Mushroom Cream Eyeshadow but then I just started playing around and came up with this :)







Urban Decay Mushroom Cream Eyeshadow
Inglot #363 on lid
Inglot #459 in crease
Inglot #498 on lashline
Urban Decay Ransom 24/7 Eyeliner under eyes
Inglot #66 and #491 under eyes
Inglot #496 to highlight
YSL Plum Mascara

Benefit Hoola Bronzer
MAC Ripe Peach Blush
YSL Celebration highlight palette

Benefit Jing-a-Ling Lipstick

    LOVE. This is an awesome look. Edgy but a bit more mature than some of your other looks. This is something I could actually wear out on a Saturday night. Dig.

      I would like to see more one pallet looks. Everything Leesha does is awesome but it is sometimes hard to follow with so many different brands are used in one look. Love her!!!

    Hey Leesha.

    Have you seen that Inglot has finally opened their webstore? Wish I lived in the U.S.

    I’m dying to try their products.

    Lovely look BTW.

    Yay, saw this on Twitter and was hoping you’d post what you used. This is so pretty…only wish the Inglot website had better swatches so I can find dupes.

    • Leesha

    Love this! I ordered from the inglot usa website on the 10th and my order still hasn’t shipped yet. :-/ Just wondering if you had ordered anything from them and actually had your order shipped?

    • Leesha

      March 18, 2011 at 8:47 am

      nope, ive only bought in store, sorry!

    • miimii

      March 18, 2011 at 11:05 am

      I placed my first Inglot order on the 12th, the 2nd one on the 13th and the 3rd one on the I placed 3 big orders but all of my orders hasn’t been shipped yet.. I sent 3 e-mails to Inglot asking when my orders will be shipped but I still haven’t heard anything from them for 3days… I’m little worried…:( Hope your order will be shipped soon..

      • Kristen

        March 18, 2011 at 4:30 pm

        I am thinking they just might be overwhelmed. I just got an email from them this morning saying that 2 of my shadows that I ordered were out of stock and that they will ship when they get them in or I could pick a different color if I wanted. From the email it made it sound like the NY store was handling all of the orders so I am going to assume that is why it is taking so long. I am sure they probably weren’t ready for the amount of orders they got. lol Oh well, nothing I can do about it now.

          I just received an e-mail saying that one of my orders(the 1st order I placed) has been shipped so I am really relieved and can’t wait to get my goodies!! I spent over $380 for my 1st order so I got free standard shipping but for some reason my package was shipped as 2nd day shipping… I don’t know if they did that by a mistake or they upgraded my shipment method since I waited for a while..they didn’t have to do that but I am really thankful they did.. :) You’re right, they are probably super busy since they just opened the online store but their customer service is awesome!! :) I can not wait to get the rest of my orders I placed!!!

  31. Casey

    March 18, 2011 at 7:16 pm

    Amazing! There’s something very fierce yet very elegant about it! I think it’s the soft colors on the lid that make it elegant and then the bold purple on the bottom that makes it fierce! Awesome! As always!

    The first pic/thumbnail makes you look stoned. Also Sephora reported this look as a trend for spring/summer ’10. Not original. Cute but hardly ground breaking.

    • Sara

      May 31, 2011 at 10:51 pm

      wow….that seems a little rude. not everyone keeps on sephora’s newsletter and i’ve never seen this before. so it’s new to me.

    really really beautiful..i think sometimes the best looks can come from just playing with products without any set look in mind. =) great’s a simple look but the detailing is amazing just the same
