Concrete Minerals’ Kinky

<p>When I saw the picture of this on Concrete Minerals' site, I thought: nahhhh. I don't need this. It's another blackened blue, it's similar enough to Souljourner and to other shades I have, I'll be able to easily opt out. And then I received a sample jar of Kinky in one of my orders.</p> <p>I was so wrong.</p> <p>It isn't blackened. It is a very deep midnight blue with a faint shimmer. It's slightly similar to other colors I have - the much-coveted Bare Escentuals' Rio springs to mind, but I think Kinky is actually deeper than Rio - but it's stunning. It can easily be used for really dark looks, lining, or smokey eyes, but a light hand and a good fiber-optic or soft focus brush lets me use this for shading. It applies well and evenly, and stays in place well (though if, like me, you have oily lids...use a primer. You'll just be happier with the long-term results.)</p>
