BareMinerals’ Muse

This is a more pigmented version of Bare Escentuals' own Black Pearl eyeshadow - more pigmented, with better adhesion and a more granular finish. The purple is clearer when applied dry. When applied wet, the color looks a bit smokier. I don't know that this would necessarily work well for a smokey-eye look, though I could be wrong about that. I think it will work well as a contouring shade, especially if the other colors are pastels or muted light shades.

This is one of my favorite purples to come out of BE in the past year, and I wish it were part of their regular lineup. (Note that the Muse color in their pressed palettes is not at all the same as this color - which was apparently only released in this kit.)
