The swatch on the left is lightly built up and the swatch on the right is one pass. Aubergine is a blackened plum with warm tones to it. Its one of those "colored liners for people who don't do colored liner" shades. I wore it with a very neutral eye for a little bit of character and it was very subtle.
The pigment of this liner actually surprised me, as I normally do not have a whole lot of luck with drugstore eyeliners. It defined my waterline with not very much work and did not tug or pull. As habit, I always set my liner with a correlating powder eyeshadow, and I saw very little migrating of this product, which I even get from higher end liners.
My only complaint goes along with this type of product in general. I don't particularly like automatic pencils. I feel that they are flimsy and more difficult to work with. This one "sharpens" quite quickly and its easy to accidentally sharpen/retract the liner while using it. It also makes it feel a little shaky. I find that automatic pencils in general are so much more prone to breaking, so it is a touch bothersome.
- Neutral take on a "fashion color"
- Cruelty free.
- Automatic pencil, flimsy packaging.
It is a pretty solid liner across the board, I just wish it was in a pencil form rather than an automatic pencil form. The formula is definitely top notch, and I'm strongly considering revisiting the brand.
