Purple Thunder

I love all colors that lie close to purple and violet in the traditional color wheel. For the sake of simplicity, I am naming this article Purple Thunder though it is about colors close to violet, lavender and not purple exclusively. I really like these shades in make up – be it lipsticks, eye shadows or eye liners.

This is a wonderful tinted lip balm that comes in the form of a thick crayon. While the color looks deep in the tube, when applied on the lips, it just leaves a gentle wash of color. It is very moisturizing and comes in 16 shades.

Lovely violet colored waterproof eye liner pencil. Sad that it is tough to work with. The eye liner drags on the lids without leaving behind enough pigment. How I wish the formula was better.
