I rarely jump at single shadows anymore because I already own way too much eyeshadow, and it is even more rare for me to plunk down close to $40 for a single color, but when I first saw this launch I knew I had to have it. I've never felt more drawn to a color! It is a complex purple-toned grey with a combination of different shimmers that elevate this color to a whole new level. The problem with powder eyeshadows is that they never quite look as dimensional as creams, but creams always crease on my oily lids so I stayed away from them. But when I saw review that said this does not crease I was swayed and it truly does last very, very well. After Maybelline's Color Tattoos launched, I compared the lasting power of this to Bad to the Bronze and this lasts longer, making it the longest lasting cream shadow I own that's still available at stores.


The texture is spongey and creamy and infinitely blend-able because it never seems to set. Yet, it does feel very dry at the same time so you feel confident it's going to last all day which it does. I have issues with this showing up as intensely as I like, and if I am in too much of a hurry to build the color up, I'll use Nyx Black Bean in my outer v with this on top. I also tend to use Too Faced Shadow Insurance underneath more out of habit but on drier lids that won't be necessary.


For the minor pay-off issues, I would've rated this a 4/5 but it is just so, so pretty with such great complex shimmer that I have to say it is probably going to be a staple in my makeup bag. It's perfect for any occasion because it manages to be interesting and tasteful. continued >>
