This colour is truly delicious the only form of blue I will ever wear apart from maybe a dark navy or teal. This to me is an improved version of MACs contrast which applied more like a black than a blue. Makes a gorgeous smokey eye paired with heaps of black liner and a neutral blending shade. Really makes hazel eyes pop. The only issue I have with these shadows is the massive fallout - you have to spend ages making sure to catch every crumb off your eyelashes or you will have streaks down your face all day as the powder falls down - and because it's long lasting its impossible to remove cleanly - so minus a lippy for that issue alone.
(U.S.A. version called) Midnight Blue is a deep, dark, royal sapphire blue with blue shimmer. Think of a peacock and the blue on its body. Thats the color and how reflective and smooth looking it is. It is an absolutely stunning color. The texture is smooth and velvety. Not chunky or dry. Color payoff is rich and vibrant, a 10 out of 10. Just unbelievable pigmentation. ( I couldnt help myself and just stare at it). Blending ability is okay. I noticed with the infallible eyeshadows in general that they if you blend them too much, that not only will the intensity of the pigment will go away but the color itself will disappear. They become muddy and dirty looking quickly and there is more fallout. That is my only disappointment in these. But what I do is blend it out, clean up the surronding eye area and carefully and lightly pack on some more color wherever the eyeshadow became "dirty" looking.The packaging is nice, looks like it could be higher end (plastic square container with plastic round top. This color is perfect for your outer corner. For girls that think they cant pull off blue eyeshadow especially like this, line your lower, outer lashline with this color and transition at mideye to a light blue or aqua ( still lashline) and use a nice highlight ( of your preference) for your inner tearduct. It will look beautiful against any skintone, haircolor, eyecolor, and undertone :) You can also use this eyeshadow as an eyeliner, it creates the perfect dark blue cat-eyes eyeliner.
