Stila’s Waterproof Smudge Stick in Aubergine

I remember saying, on Twitter, that if Stila were to make a maroon eyeliner, I'd snap it up in a heartbeat. This isn't maroon, it's more a reddish cabernet…but it's close. I had originally thought that this color was just renamed to “Blackened Burgundy” and introduced to the regular lineup, but…nope. Aubergine is its own unique color. It's similar to Urban Decay's Riot, but minus the metallic finish or the contrasting pink sparkles. You just get a warm purplish color…with slightly better coverage than Riot has.
