day one hundred and one, nubar pasadena purple

so today i thought i'd try to show something from nubar that ISN'T from the going green collection (i know..i'm obsessed with it!). pasadena purple (which makes me laugh because i grew up in los angeles and this colour doesn't remind me of pasadena at all!) is an awesome electric purple, incredibly bright and vivid. so of course...i couldn't capture it for the life of me. purples seem to be troublesome to capture accurately. the second picture most accurately portays the brightness and the flashed out picture is closest for the colour. it's an awesome, awesome shade. i'm still not sure how ready i am to delve back into the magical world of purple from my earlier 'purpled-out' mood but i am certainly dipping my toes! i think this is the first nubar colour i own (and have swatched for this blog) that is just one colour. usually they are strong shimmers, holos and duochromes. i only own ONE nubar creme (which i have yet to wear ever) and it's nice to see something from them besides what I know them (talk about awkward sentence structure...but i couldn't end a sentence in 'for'. it makes my english degree angry!)

Good purple. If you are in the UK then Barry M do a purple that is less than half the price of Nubar. Just go into Superdrug and you will see it.
