It’s both wonderful and terrifying to live so close to a Sephora, because when I get on a makeup whim, I can just hop in my car, and BAM! Five minutes later I’ve got every purple liner in the store swatched on the back of my hand.
Yeah, I’m going through a purple liner phase right meow, big time (in case you haven’t noticed, LOL!). I love the look of a warm brown lid with purple liner on the lash lines. I’ve just been into it lately! Please be patient with me as I work my way through it…
Anyways, Connor convinced me to go to Sephora last Friday (yes, it was all the baby’s doing), so we went looking for a new purple to add to my collection. This latest love is a shade called Violet by Sephora Collection.
Violet is from their Colorful Shadow & Liner Waterproof Line, and I think it’s been around for a while, but it’s new to me. They’re chubby crayons that you can use as liners or eyeshadows, and there are mattes, shimmers and glitters, all for a pretty affordable $14 a stick.
Besides the pretty purple color — which looks like someone liquefied the perfect violet blossom, poured it into a pencil, then added a twinge of shimmer — it doesn’t set so quickly that you don’t have any time to play.
Like, seriously, less than a minute! — so there’s never enough time for me to play.
But with this one, which is so vibrant and eye-catching, I get 2-3 minutes. That isn’t a ton of time compared to MAC Prunella (another favorite purple of mine, but it’s darker than the others and stays wet for about 10 minutes), but it’s enough time for me to smudge it out.
