Stila’s Waterproof Smudge Crayon in Pink Violet

Semisheer reddish medium purple…it doesn't work too well on me as an all-over lid color because of the patchy application. It works okay as a liner, providing subtler definition and color. It's similar to one of Urban Decay's metallic liner pencils, but it provides just slightly better coverage than that pencil.

A montage of three images: top left, close-up of the eyeliner tube or pencil barrel; top right, the eyeliner applied over bare skin, to better show the shade and properties; and below, the eyeliner applied on the eyelid at the lash line.

I bought this pencil at one of Stila's warehouse sales - for a “complete” collection of these colors. I got it for $10. Because of the color and the application, I don't know that I personally would pay full price for this one…but I don't feel like this was a hideous purchase. It just doesn't work as well for me as some of the other Smudge Crayons. I don't see myself reaching for this one too often, unless I can find some alternate use for it (like I have for Smoke, which is my daily brow color. Yes, really.)
