BareMinerals’ Smoky Sage

Soft brown that leans cool. This is a brown, not a green like the name hints; but it leans cooler. Folks with very gold tones in their coloring may not have the easiest time wearing this shade. The coverage is good, but it's a soft enough shade that I can only use it as a contouring color if all the other colors in that particular look are likewise very pale. This shade is not so subtle that it's virtually a stealth color, but it's not going to provide lots of definition on its own.
