The only negative thing about this cream eyeshadow stick is the price (insanely expensive...) and that it is constantly out of stock in this color where I am. I was skeptical about Misty Rock after reading rave reviews about it, but went down to a counter to swatch it for myself, and fell in LOVE. Misty Rock is a mauvey shade with a taupe base, and its multidimensional shimmer is simply beautiful and unique. I can't describe the color and shimmer with any justice and would encourage you to swatch it for yourself. If you don't like shimmer, I bet you would make an exception for this beauty. In terms of application on the eye, the strange thing is that Laura Mercier's Amethyst (appears similar when swatched, but not an exact dupe) can look too tapuey and drab on me, but not Misty Rock (those purple tones just pop; I'm NC20-25 with brown eyes). I wear this without a primer; it applies easily with a creamy texture and sets fast; lasts wonderfully without creasing or smudging for a full work day (12 hours wear). I wear this a lot (major soft spot for mauvey taupe eyeshadows) and recently bought a backup. It is THAT gorgeous!

Although the price point is insane for blackstars especially considering the amount of product you get compared to other cream shadows in the high end range, the formulation is beautiful. Super easy to apply, they glide on and blend out wonderfully and last pretty much until I take them off. In addition to misty rock I also have blue obsession, frozen quartz and bronze moon but misty rock is the only one I will repurchase. The others are beautiful as well, but I own similar colours to each of those between my collection of chanel illusion d'ombres and tom ford cream eye shadows. Misty rock is a completely unique colour however. On my eyes it goes on a lavender mauve-y shade with strong taupe undertones which makes it very wearable. Mauve-y shades are often unwearable for me with my NW10 skintone and blue eyes they tend to make me look sick more often than not, but this one is just gorgeous and really makes my eyes pop.

At the end of summer I decided to treat myself and pick up a few nice things from SpaceNK. I headed to their shop in Brighton, swatched Misty Rock and proceeded to purchase it. I had made a little research before hand and I knew that Kiko makes a dupe for it so I went back to the shopping mall and bought kiko eyeshadow stick in n.5. I swatched them side by side on my hand and they looked virtually the same, and since I really liked the shade I decided to buy that as well.
Do I regret buying any of the two? No, not at all. But do I have a preference between the two? No, I can't even tell them apart if I forget which one I'm wearing. I'm not a kiko fan at all, but believe me, on purpose or by chance, they have nailed the exact dupe for Misty Rock. Also, longevity-wise, both of them are equally long lasting, easy to apply, and a beautiful impossible to describe shade of purpley taupey rosy brown. I tend to use the cheap one (kiko!) as a base for a sophiticate smokey eye and the expensive one on its own, but there have been times when I have worn one on each eye just to prove that you can't tell the difference. The only real difference is the packaging. Black and plastic for Kiko, gold and luxurious for Misty Rock. The content, virtually the same.

Ridiculously priced creme eyeshadow stick but the colour is so beautiful. I will buy this again and again and again. This is by far my favourite formula of eyeshadow ever.

These Ombre Blackstars are my HG formula. Smooth, creamy and do not budge for anything. I use Misty Rock to line my lower lash line and sometimes as a top lid liner. However, I generally like the Wow factor this gives when I put it on the bottom lashes and then use something mild on the top. It makes my brown eyes sparkle.

Since purchasing this shade I went back and grabbed Brown Perfection. I was debating between Bronze Moon, and will be going back to get that one, but the Brown Perfection has a slightly different formula that I wanted. It has no sparkle, just pure pigment and sheen compared to some of the others.

Misty Rock most certainly has sparkle, not just sheen like Brown Perfection. Some people may be turned off by that. Don't be. Easily blended out and not as glittery as UD, Chanel, etc.

On me, NC15 in MAC and N10 in CoverFX, I mostly get a beautiful wash of purple that really stands out against my brown eyes. I don't really get a taupe shade that a lot of people have said. It reminds me of Toasted by Urban Decay, just slightly, for having an effect of changing colors in different lights. In more shadow it goes a dark mauve, in bright light it is clearly a purply pink.

5/5 for me. Just the price hurts my pocket, lol, but that won't stop me from getting a bunch more.

Amazing Product! I've been reaching for it every day in the last couple weeks. It's super easy to use, the texture is smooth like butter. It takes no single effort to glide it on my eyelids and blend, but once it sets, it stays like iron!
As regards glitter, I personally love shiny metallic eyeshadows. And I find that 05 Misty Rock - a purple taupe colour, is the shiniest one among the ombre blackstar line. The shine of it is quite complex and doesn't look cheap at all. So this is a big YES to me.

I'm addicted to these shadow sticks. They blow every other formula I've tried out of the water. They last all day (even in the water line) without a primer or powder on top. "Misty Rock" is one of the most shimmery/borderline sparkly from the range (second only to "Black Pearl"). It feels weightless and glides on like butter. If I want a more opaque look I find it works best to build it up in thinly blended out layers. I apply it from the pen and blend with my fingers or a synthetic brush. While I wish the price was lower-- it's worth every penny.

This is a gorgeous color for people with cool-toned complexions. It's a medium brown leaning towards taupe. It's great worn all over the lid and blended into the crease. You could add a powder crease color for more drama. It sets and does not budge. It creates no eye irritation for my sensitive eyes. In comparison with the Laura Mercier crayons, I like this much better. The only thing that would prevent me from purchasing again, which is very specific to my age group, is that it does have some very fine glitter which accentuates fine lines. But if you are in your 20s or 30s and debating about the expense of this product, this one is absolutely worth it for the quality of the color and application.

I LOVE THE SHADE MISTY ROCK!

I cannot be without this eyeshadow stick! The formula is super creamy, super easy to blend and the colour is just incredible!

When swatched I will admit this shade does look very glittery but I've found that if I apply this straight from the stick then blend with my MAC 217 brush that the sparkle fades a little and instead you are left with a beautiful shimmer! Alternatively if you want to keep the sparkly look blend with your fingers rather than a brush!

I also love this in the water line or under the eye, it opens up the eye area so so much!

The colour I would describe as a dark mauve purple colour and you have to try it to see how amazing the colour really is!

Only thing I would say is it is a little on the expensive side but if you've tried and failed with drugstore shadow sticks I would highly recommend testing this out, you won't be disappointed and it will last you forever!
