A purple (delinquent) for everyday wear?
I'm looking for a purple that will make my hazel eyes stand out (which is a hard thing to do because the tones are so dark) but at the same time I don't want a colour where the eyeliner colour TAKES away attention from the actual eye colour. I was originally going to purcahse rockstar, however, its so similar to black eyeliners that I've recently invested money in that I couldn't justify purchasing it which lead me to Delinquent. Are the sparkles tacky? From the swatches I've seen, it appears that the base of the colour is coal with lays of purple sparkles on it. Can anyone give me their input on this or any suggestions for a purple colour that would be flattering but not too in your face? Also do the sparkles fall down on your cheek/under-eye area? Any advice would be appreciated, thanks! :)

this may be really irrelevant... but I used to wear purple liner all the time because I have light brown/hazel eyes as well. I actually use gel liner(bobbi brown, trying water proof anastasia now) and what I used to do is, two toning the liners... black lines then on top a thin purple line. If the purple is a bit darker, it won't look too stark with the black liner. (Bobbi brown purple is actually too light for my taste tho. but which ever liner kind you use is fine)
Just a thought haha.

I've used Vice which is a dark purple with subtle glitter. Definitely purple and not black, the glitter does not fall everywhere though you may notice a stray sparkle once in a while, and it does not budge. I like the staying power of Vice more than any of UD's other pencils, actually.
For reference, I have brown eyes and I found it to be very flattering.
My eyes are light brown and I like using purple liner. UD makes/made a great purple-based color called "crash" that you may still be able to find. It is my go-to liner and I bought several when I thought they were discontinuing it. I also use "rockstar" which as you said is more of a true purple. I use it a lot and smoke it with rockstar shadow. Really pretty!
I think it would look great on you. It has a blackish/purple soft sheen. Very pretty but not overwhelming.
