Passionate about purple? Pining for plum? Please pardon our pervasive purple puns, but we're positively panting over the gorgeous shadows in the Estee Lauder Pure Color Five Color Eyeshadow Palette in Surreal Violet ($42). Included 5 high-pigment, silky shades of grey, lavender, plum, and bluish purple in a luxurious gold mirrored compact, and when they say pure color, they mean it. There's little to no fallout over the course of a day, and the colors look the same on your skin as they do in the compact, even on darker skin tones. We came up with a ton of great looks using the 5 shadows, from smoky to club to daytime neutral, and were happy with each one. Sometimes, it really is worth it to splash out on the good stuff!
