She was at Sephora when she first saw it. It was sitting there in a display front and center alongside another one similar, but with a different finish. She silently shrieked. She reached for it, hands slightly tingly with anticipation. Which one to pick up first the Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Periwinkle or the Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Periwinkle? She chose the Smudge Stick.
Admiring the shade of the packaging she hoped the shade inside would be the same. She slowly slid the cap off. Lo and behold there it was. The same EXACT shade as the packaging suggested it would be. It was all she could do to appear like a normal, sane person in a store packed with people.
She gently glided the creamy liner across her hand, where it left a vivid periwinkle blue streak. It was all she needed to know.
She had no idea how she would wear this pretty shade, but she didn’t care. It was coming home with her and that was final.
Maybe she would just gaze at it in quiet moments. Maybe she would wear it on her hand all day so she could steal quick glances at it when she needed motivation. Maybe it would sit, nestled in a box with her other blue eye liners, and she would take comfort in just knowing it was there if she needed it.
Or maybe, just maybe she would figure out a way to work this shade into a makeup look this spring.
