Purple Reigns with Urban Decay's Shadow Box

     Nothin' makes green eyes pop like purple eyeshadow! I'll admit, purple is not my favorite color, but for some reason it just goes so well with the color green.
     I did this quick and subtle (at least I think it's subtle! lol) eye look this morning before work, and I used an Urban Decay Shadow Box.
     This Urban Decay Shadow Box includes shadows (left to right, top to bottom) Snatch, Mildew, Flash, Painkiller, Smog, and Toasted. The retail price for this bad boy is $30, but has it on sale for $16 right now, and I will tell you, that is a STEAL, because it comes with six eyeshadows, a mini eyeliner in Zero, and a mini Eyeshadow Primer Potion.
     Yes, the names are kinda strange, but Urban Decay has some of the best eyeshadows on the market; there is a phethora of vivid colors to choose from, they are very pigmented, and they have an extremely long wear time with proper primer underneath. For example, I put this eyeshadow on at approximately 9am, and here I am at 11pm without a crease in sight! If you haven't been able to tell yet, I love love love Urban Decay eyeshadows! The only bad thing about Urban Decay is that some of their eyeshadows have waaay too much glitter in them, which causes fallout on the face. That becomes a problem when you are in a hurry and want to do a quick look.
     For the look below, I used Snatch on the inner corner of the eyelid, (which does have major glitter fallout and caused a problem this morning, ha ha) and Flash on the outer corner of the lid and blended the two together. Flash is my absolute FAVORITE purple eyeshadow of all time, and I don't know what I will do when I use it all up. I also used Urban Decay's 24/7 Eyeliner in Perversion on my waterline, which is a limited-edition, I-hope-it-becomes-available-all-the-time-blackest-black-eyeliner-ever! I love to line my waterline with this black because it shows up so much more than any other black eyeliner I own. (By the way, the black eyeliner pictured in the palette below is not Perversion, it is Zero, which came with the palette, but isn't as dark of a black.)
     Do you love purple eyeshadows? If so, what's your favorite purple eyeshadow of all time?
