Purple Eye liner. For All Those Prince Concerts, or Whatever.

I am not sure why you need this, or I need this. But I have it, and I am showing it to you. Sometimes wearing purple as an eye liner can be fun! Green eyes look great with it!

I usually love NYX's studio liquid liners. For $4, this colorful liner is a fun addition to your stash. They even have crazy colors like baby blue. This one is called 'Extreme Purple'. It is basically just your average royal purple.

I love that the brush is short and very thin. You can get a precise line and it is less likely to fray.

The color is pretty if layered (the straight swatch) if applied in one coat it is a little watery (the smiley face) and that isn't good. It dries quickly, but to layer eye liner is an extra step some may not want to hassle with.

The upside to this liner is that it isn't chock-full of glitter. Just color, which is hard to find in a colored liquid liner. It is also vibrant, true purple -- not plum.

Final Thoughts: Unique but not flawless.

Price: 10/10
Staying Power: 8/10
Packaging: 9/10
Color/Wearability: 10/10
Quality/Branding: 7/10

Total: 44/50 = B+ = Panda is Happy :)

Do you know of a better quality dupe for an eye liner in this color? Let us know!

  1. LOL you're not sure why you need this? Because you're a beauty blogger, of course! Love the color, unfortunately don't know of any dupes...the only purple liner I wear regularly is more of an eggplant shade.

    1. Haha good point. But sometimes I still question if I need more make up. Or my bank account does anyway. It is a really interesting color, brighter than most anything I've seen. I bet eggplant looks great on you!!


Thanks for taking the time to comment! I appreciate it!
