Violet Longwear Eye Pencil ($24.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium-dark cool-toned purple with a matte finish. The consistency on this was slightly waxy with just so-so color payoff, but it was more buildable than Slate. For a purple, it wasn’t half bad. It wore well for eight and a half hours but was noticeably thinner after ten hours of wear. Urban Decay Vice is warmer and shimmery. Urban Decay Ransom is more shimmery, cooler-toned. NARS St. Marks Place is cooler-toned, more violet. Milani Perfect Purple is more shimmery. MAC Designer Purple is also more shimmery. See comparison swatches.
