Drugstore Makeup Look: Purple and Pink Eyes

I recently revisited my Hard Candy Top Ten Palettes and came up with this rich purple eye with a touch of sparkle. The sparkle comes from a Hard Candy glitter liner...they're awesome! A little note though - as I mentioned in nearly all of my Top Ten palette reviews, these eyeshadows work best with a good base. A creamy, colored base would be best. For this look I used a NYX Jumbo Pencil in Yogurt.

Anyway...I seriously love Hard Candy. Great products and so super affordable.

Which one did you use for the primary lid color? I looked back at your swatches for this palette, is it the 4th swatch? The colors look more vibrant than the swatches so it's hard to tell which you used.

@Kelly...it was the fourth color. I had to pack it on the base on my lid and only blend in my crease to get it to show up like this.
