Stila Black Amethyst Smudge Stick Eyeliner ($20.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a "matte black purple." It's a blackened plum with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one pass, but it was drier and harder to build up the color--it looked very unevenly and tended to layer on itself so some parts would be opaque and others would be sheerer. It wore well for eight hours before thinning. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
