This is a great shadow, it is a nice smoky grey. Perfect for smoky eyes, without looking too dark or overdone. GIves nice definition to the eyes.
I bought this about five days ago, and already I can't live without it. I have olive skin, black-brown hair and dark eyes, and this shimmery charcoal is perfect for my skin tone. It's the first gray toned eye shadow I've ever been able to pull off. It has a slight blue tint to it, which brightens my eyes and keeps the color from being gloomy. Like all Estee Lauder products, the pigment is rich and the texture is creamy. I love this stuff, and my husband, who doesn't pay attention to these things, commented on how much he likes this eye shadow. Definitely worth the money.
