Estee Lauder Blackened Plum Pure Color Intense Kajal Eyeliner

Estee Lauder Blackened Plum Pure Color Intense Kajal Eyeliner ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a deep blackened purple that leans a little cool-toned. It’s not quite your violet, blue-based purple, but it’s nowhere near eggplant or burgundy. I couldn’t think of anything that comes close to the level of darkness (without being black)–the closest purple I could think of was L’Oreal HIP Violet Volt, which is much lighter and shimmery to boot!  Between the darkness and not-quite-cool-tone, I think this will be an excellent alternative to black eyeliners on all skin tones and against all eye colors.  It’s a great way to accent a smoky eye!

The pigmentation is impressive, because it’s really rich and opaque in a single pass, which is what we all want, and we don’t always find it, especially in purple eyeliners–too often purple eyeshadows and eyeliners seem to skip and drag. Blackened Plum is decadent in texture; creamy enough to glide-on effortlessly and give great color in one go but still stays in place once you apply it. It wore for ten hours without fading or smudging on the lash line, though the water line was only around six hours.
