Lilac is described as a "opaque bubblegum pink with a brush of lavender "

Testers reported

"Reducing silver glass is very pretty on top of Lilac, with the fritty bits developing interesting halos and fuming the Lilac an uneven yellowish colour. As a base for striking silver glass, Lilac is unremarkable." Read more at Melanie's blog.

"This pink pony - is definitely pink. The base is Effetre Periwinkle, for reference. I see a little discolouration in the photo below - on the neck and nose, and I'm not sure what that is - it's not really that visible in real life. It might be a little fuming from the silver frit on the periwinkle base." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"Lilac is right in between Rapunzel and Gelly's Sty. It is such a pretty lavender pink. Lilac melts beautifully with no shocking or bubbling."

"Lilac is very, very pale - almost icy - and not really pink or lavender, but somewhere in between. However, it makes up for those things by being quite opaque and just a dream to melt. It's not as stiff as more opal glass, and doesn't lose it's opacity when layered. That means you can put darker transparent colors over it and it won't wash out or go see-through. When encasing it in clear, it does go lighter, as you might expect." Read more at Kandice's blog.

"I had to work Lilac a little cooler to avoid boiling the glass." [Bottom strand pictured here is etched.]

"Lilac melted smoothly with no shockiness or bubbles and is reactive with some colors. Encased with Venus it is a fabulous bright beautiful pink. I was surprised to see a color reaction with the Tuxedo, Black Ivory and Dark Ivory, there was a little ring created around each dot. With Kalera’s Romance frit it created a nice organic colored bead with lovely pops of purple. Using silver foil and the Zen Garden frit, the frit spread beautifully creating a pretty organic colored bead."

"CiM describes this as an opaque bubble gum pink, which I would say was spot on, so a bit confused why it's called lilac. While it is pink, I would say that it does lean towards a pink with more blue tones. Lilac was fuss free and melted like a dream. Looking closely at the dots on Effetre lilac I can see that they do have an inner ring, and looking very closely at the turquoise dots on Lilac, they have a very faint lighter ring right on the edges. Etching Lilac really mutes the colour close to Effetre 260, but left shiny it's a much stronger. On the edges of the bead near the holes the colour is a shade darker, hardly noticeable on the shiny bead, but slightly more pronounced on the etched one. A lovely pink with a strong character!"
