Maybelline Amethyst Smokes Quad

Maybelline Amethyst Smokes Eyeshadow Quad

I have had this Maybelline Amethyst Smokes eyeshadow quad for a long time, so im not sure on the price, but i have never swatched it & i felt like it today. Its basically one of my favorite palettes to use when doing a smokey eye because purple is my favorite color and it really brings out the green in my eyes. I applied...
Medium purple shimmer shadow all over lids,
Dark purple matte shadow shaded into creases,
Black glitter shadow shaded into outer corners,
and White shimmer shadow as a highlight.
I finished it with liquid eyeliner pencil in black, and black mascara. Check out the last image for a visual and text of exactly what shades im talking about, and where i applied them. The back of this palette shows you how to create this look yourself but the applicators provided dont work that well. I used my own brushes.

What are your favorite shades to create a smokey look?
