I was really expecting more heft from the color. This very softened greyed-navy-ish is attractive enough, but it isn't what I expected. It also doesn't smoke worth a damn, so it's useful to add this exact color…and that's about it. This isn't the worst performing loose-powder shadow that I've bought from any vendor (including elf) but…yeah. No. Not worth it, in my opinion. Not even if you can get it 50% off.

Photos that show how the product actually performs...! See how I create my swatches

On the other hand, if you wanted some softer color additives for manicures, you could use this. Sprinkle it over a wet manicure to get an “organic-feel” uneven effect, like a starfield or paintball splatter or something.

...I think I have an idea…
