I am sad to say that this is a really bad eyeshadow. It's one of their shimmers. It's a mid-tone blue violet. It looks so pretty in the package but it has barely any pigment- it hardly leaves any color.It's not very shimmery either. I tried it with many eyeshadow bases. It leaves a light purple pink wash that flashes blue. I would not recommend this shade- it's a waste of money. :(

*** OK, so I got this to work better. I used MAC's Mauvsim Paint and it seems to make it look nicer. It brings a nice blueish purple pop on top on it. It still isn't' very pigmented and nothing special. I added an extra lippie because when used with this paint it does look pretty. But not worth $20. MAC or Urban Decay have a ton of purple eyeshadows that are much better than this ( and less expensive. )
