Purple reigns


That beach-worthy blue and turquoise eye makeup just won't cut it with this season's moody shades-of-purple palette. What does is a new collection from Clinique. Launch your new look with its Kohl Shaper for Eyes ($20). One of the friendliest liners we've ever come across, it goes on easily, doesn't leave you with raccoon rings, and comes in colours like black with a bit of teal, purple, or blue. A sensible piece of design wizardry is the little pencil sharpener built into the pencil itself. Shade your lids with Colour Surge Eye Shadow Quads, which combine four related shades so you don't have to ditz around with individual containers. Our pick: Plum Seduction ($32.50).
