I brought this eyeliner a few weeks ago, after purchasing the turquoise shade from the Chromatics range before and vowing to try more colours. I absolutely fell in love with the creamy formula and knew this metallic purple wouldn’t disappoint.

The formula of this is super creamy as I mentioned before, in my last post I even went as far as to compare it to good ole Urban Decay pencils which I would happily stand by that point. The shade is a beautiful metallic violet which makes me think of liquid metal. It is seriously eyecatching and perfect for creating a bold looking eye.
The pencil itself is so easy to grip as it is quite thin and not too bulky. It has amazing pigmentation, in one swipe you are left with a really good amount of colour which can then be built upon too. My only niggle is that the nib tends to wear down really quickly, so it does need to be sharpened quite frequently! 
I am really impressed with the wear time of this, as maybelline say this will stay for up to 16 hours and I wore this whilst I was at work doing stocktake and this didn’t budge a bit! I think this shade is perfect for a night out, if you are looking for a soft creamy pencil thats not too expensive, then I would 100% recommend this range.
