Black Rose Minerals’ Andromeda

An interesting softer brown with some gold highlights. It's semisheer, which I don't always love; but it is buildable. I wish the color had a bit more heft right out of the pot, but on the upside, it's inexpensive, and it applies evenly. There are no bald or even thinner patches.

A montage of three images: top left, close-up of the eyeshadow in the pot; top right, the eyeshadow mixed with water and applied to bare skin; bottom left, the eyeshadow applied dry over primer.

This color is soft enough that it will be almost lost beside any really bold, bright shades. On the other hand, used alongside softer mid-weight colors like pink-rose or pale burnished gold, this will work quite nicely. I've had some success using this with whites and near-whites, with this as the sole accent color, and gotten some nice “nearly-no-makeup” looks.
