BareMinerals’ Grand Illusion

Not the very best performer in this kit, and I've seen better matte soft blacks from other companies. But…not tons better. And I've certainly come across worse performers. If I use a primer and a mixing medium, it applies and stays in place very well. I don't have such great luck trying to smoke it out on my eyelid, but it works acceptably as a regular eyeshadow color. It's a bit similar to BE's own Soft Black.
