Concrete Minerals’ Hustle

On the vendor site, this looks like a cool muted mauve, but to me, it looked more like a warm purple-mauve. I sometimes have a little trouble wearing warm purples on my lids, unless they're of a certain color depth. Bare Escentuals' Magical is a color that I never would have guessed would look good on me, and it looks amazing with my coloring. Hustle isn't as deep a purple, though, so it doesn't work quite as easily for me. Folks who love and can wear warmer / mauved purples should love this shade. Application and opacity are excellent, and you get a good amount of product for the money (even more if you have a coupon, or there's a sale going on.) This is one of the newer shades, released shortly after CM moved off Etsy and onto their own webstore.

This color could probably make a better blush, for me, than an eyeshadow. (That sounds really really weird…but I've worn purplish blushes before and on me, they actually look good.) I'll just have to use a very light touch, and my fiber-optic brush, and I'll be good.
