AWESOME color!! Not really lilac but a pretty purply color with a touch of frost that goes with all the new fall colors. Just the color I was looking for too. So many just have too much pink or red, this is just right. I love these little pencils case they are so cheap I can buy several: for my bag, my desk, my makeup case, vanity, etc. I mean I hardly ever use up a pencil, I usually just find one I like better so I end up with tons of them. These little ones are so much cheaper, easier and the work great!
