This is a pretty…well, sooty color. It definitely works best used as a liner, or as an accent and not blended very much. When I tried blending it into another color, I got a lot of sooty carry-over and muddiness. This definitely needs a transition shade between it and the adjacent shade. It looks best, in my opinion, when applied damp or over a damp base or some type of glitter glue.

This is a color that many lines - indie and BigCo - have tried. Outdoorsy is not one of the better executions. (Even if it is incredibly inexpensive.)
