Below are comparisons with similar colors in my stash. I was surprised to find I own five violet eye liners! Actually, I shouldn't be too surprised since it is one of my favorite colors. I think the Chanel was a limited edition from long, long ago. Sonia Kashuk's Purple Passion is available at Target for just $5.99. It's not quite the same as St. Marks Place, but is similar enough to give the same general effect. I actually prefer it, as it is soft-textured and blendable. However, if you are looking for a liner that will stay put and not smudge, then I would go with the NARS.
I have just a handful of gold liners. I acquired MAC's Powersurge a few months ago and it has become a staple for lower lash line lining. It is a tad darker and not quite as shimmery and eye-catching as Campo de' Fiori, but is along the same lines. Revlon's Luxurious Color Eyeliner in Antiqued Gold has a nice, blendable texture and a convenient smudger at the opposite end. It retails for around $6.00. I'm not sure if it's still widely available in stores, but it can still be found at Amazon and eBay. Estee Lauder's Bronze Goddess duo pencil in Gold Bronze was a limited edition from earlier this year.
|Oops! I mislabeled above, it should be St. Marks Place *not* St. James Place|
|I like the way tanzanite blue looks paired with violet (earrings from Swarovski)|
