I like Lancome eye shadows as liners. The work magnifically with wet brush for lining the eyes. But there is a problem with blending if I try to pack it on when I use it dry. This color is almost matte and it really is not as deep when you use it dry. I find the new color design eye shadows better than Lancomes previous round eye shadows, because the new ones are smoother and less chalky. Thsi color is a gorgeous dark blue with maybe a violet tinge. It complements gorgeously without overpowering my blue-green cool eyes and making them striking. I do not want to repurchase because the texture vice it is easy to mess this up.
