Mmmm.... Twilight Sable is like the shade of rich deep dark chocolate. Really nicely pigmented and great for a smokey eye. Ben Nye mattes are smooth and just a tiny bit powdery which helps make them easy to blend. It does seem like the lighter shades are the most powdery and the deeper ones less so, but still, as far as mattes go, easy to work with. For reference, Twilight Sable is deeper than Espresso and Rich Suede, but not as dark as Black Brown, though still very dark.
