I wanted so badly to love this shade as it looked like a beautiful shimmery black in the packaging and advertisements, and so many magazines and such were recommending it. But I was disappointed when I tried it. For one thing, the packaging is very fragile and the top lid can pop off or the pan can become loose extremely easily. As for the actual shadow, the colour is pigmented enough but the issue is fallout. I think I had more of a fallout problem with this than with any other shadow I'd ever used. No matter what I used to apply it, no matter how hard or soft I pressed or what primer I used I had a thick cloud of black sooty shadow underneath my eye that was impossible to remove without rubbing off all my concealer, foundation and so on. It continued to fall throughout the day. It's a real pity because this looked so lovely, but the fallout problem is just terrible.
