No Shy Violets Here

Meet my favorite eyeliner of late: Elizabeth Arden's Smoky Eyes Powder Pencil in Black Violet (say that five times fast). Despite its sultry coloring, this little baby can take you from day to night.

I smudge it on my lashline for daytime wear. The creamy pencil glides on and dries to a powdery finish which is incredibly easy to smudge. For after-hours wear, I trace along the waterline. Personally for me it wears more violet tone than black but for some it tends to wear more black. I think it's a nice alternative to the traditional black pencil and adds a little fun with its inky purple hue.

I rub my eyes a lot, A LOT, and this liner sticks around. It also managed to take me through an evening out in 100+ degree weather and maximum humidity. That's a definite win in my book.


  1. It can be humid when it's more than 100 degrees? That sounds brutal.

  2. LOVE that color, girl! It's perfect for my pasty white skin!!! Hit me up if you want to go get a drink or something while you are in nyc!!
