Wearable Lavender FOTD and Lioele, Peripera, and Too Cool for School Swatches and Mini-Reviews

Lavender is one of my favorite colors (and fragrances), but I had a hard time finding wearable lavender makeup until I started checking out Asian products. Today I went for light lavender eyes and lavender blush to liven up a black T-shirt on a spring day. I call this look “I used a very light hand, good luck finding the lavender, but I know it’s there, and that makes me happy.”

April 14 FOTD

I promise I’m happier than my pictures make me appear.

Swatches and mini-reviews

The Too Cool for School Dinoplatz Eye Shadow on Flatiron is a cream eyeshadow packaged in an adorable tube.

Brontosaurus!

Out of the tube, it has quite a lot of shimmer but not much color payoff, which works well for me as a base shade. It applies easily with a fingertip and lasts all day.

The amount I use on lids as a base shade.

See? Very sheer.

It’s available on Memebox for $9.90.

I love the Lioele Color Eye Shadow Single in Brown Violet as a softer alternative to liner. I apply it with a stiff eyeliner brush. The color payoff is good, but be warned: this shadow has some fairly intense glitter fallout, so apply early in your makeup routine so that you can wipe off any stray flecks of sparkle. I wear this all day without touching up, though it will fade around the 6 hour mark without a primer or creamy base like the TCFS cream eyeshadow.

Cute, portable container.

A nice smoky, subtle purple with a LOT of glitter.

The Lioele Color Eye Shadow single in Brown Violet is available on Memebox for $5.00.

And finally, my favorite blush of the year, Peripera Ah! Much Real My Cushion Blusher in Lively Lavender! This blush is exactly what I wanted out of a lavender blush: pastel color that stays true lavender on my skin instead of turning pink or mauve, easily blendable and buildable coverage (I went with only one layer for today’s FOTD because I didn’t want to conflict with the Innisfree lipstick), and a soft finish that lasts all day. Love it. I’ve used it almost every day since I got it.

Ah! Much lavender. Many pretty. Wow.

  1. I’m not a huge fan of lavender scents, but I think the colour is so pretty, especially for spring! I always stick to my neutrals (brown, bronze, chocolate…) but I think I need to branch out a bit ^^ I recently just ordered a Lioele product too (skincare, not makeup), I haven’t heard much about this brand so it’s good to see someone else using it!

  2. Hey, I really like your blog but just a suggestion: maybe upgrade to a better camera for FOTDs (or use the back camera… I assume you’re using the front facing one for face shots)? Because tbh the photo quality makes it difficult to discern *any* colour/effect of the blush on your skin, and I can’t even tell that you’re wearing eyeshadow! No offence meant by this comment, just a heads up!
