Another item I snagged overseas (from the airport this time: I couldn't find any Bobbi Brown in the department stores I went to and it's an online-only thing for Sephora), the Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner is a cult favourite. Bobbi Brown is one of those brands that's ridiculously expensive to buy here in Australia. I paid US$21 for this, although I believe the RRP in Myer and David Jones is $45. Crazy.
Anyway, I bought Violet Ink instead of the black I'd normally get. I got a black L'Oreal HiP cream eyeliner on the same trip, so I thought I'd go for something different. As you can see, it's a pretty dark purple, yet still obviously purple. I'm not a fan of purple eyeliners that are so dark, you can't tell they're purple.
I believe it's available in 14 different colours, some of them shimmer. I thought about getting the shimmer purple, but decided I'd wear the plain one more often. Now that I've tried (and loved) it, however, I think my next one will be a shimmer.
