NYX Cosmetics’ Epic Wear Liner Stick in Periwinkle Pop

The name doesn’t seem to match the color - periwinkle is in the blue-violet range, and this is more of a pale lilac. It’s a nicely understated color with a good amount of light-reflection that doesn’t obscure or overpower the base shade. This can apply a bit unevenly, and you may need to apply a second stroke to get an evenly solid line. Depending on the effect you want, you may find that this works better for you on the waterline. It will definitely provide a softer tint and a brightening effect - similar to White Smoke, but with a frost/pearl finish.
