Fell in love with this shade as soon as I saw it the first time. Black plum and plum smoke shades make the great duo for a quick smokey eye makeup, especially for green eyes. Bought them together, and, oh, boy, it was expensive. I was so excited to try them out, applied with no primer and that was such a disappointment! They wouldn't stick and would end up all over my face, creating a huge mess. The colour didn't show up at all and came right off. Next time I've applied it with the primer (I used NYX white primer), and, wow, primer really made a huge difference! The colour applied evenly, blended easily and stayed on place till I took it off. Was super quick and easy to work with. It's probably fastest smokey eye look, after maybelline colour tattoo. Speaking of which, they have a shade "vintage plum" which, at first looks like a dupe for black plum or plum smoke shades. I don't have this product, so, it was just the first impression, when I saw the swatches. Overall, Black plum and Plum smoke are one of the most beautiful shades for plum/purple colour makeup, but its expensive and works well only with a decent primer.
