Lost in Makeupland’s Volta

I was kind of hoping that this would be a close match for Aromaleigh v1's Drama Purple, which I utterly missed a chance to buy. Volta is a dark purple, with minimal shimmer. I think the base color is close to Drama Purple, but there's not the metallic finish that DP had. What I like about this shade, though, is that compared to the other Rock My Look colors, there seems to be a little bit less blackening and a little more color than in Queen or Yeah Yeah Yeah. This color is a bit too dark for me to wear as an all-over shade, but only because I tend not to wear super-bold dramatic eye looks. It works excellently as an eyeliner, crease or contouring shade. And it's just the right shade of violet to emphasize the blue in my eyes!! Double bonus!! It's like having a wicked plum liner that isn't too “soft” a plum color. There's a bit of vivid without any garish overtones.
