Everyday Minerals’ Smokey

Snagged this one to complete the Smokey Eyes kit; and because it's hard for any company to screw up basic black. True to form for most EDM products, this is less pigmented than other straight black matte eyeshadows (such as BE's Luxe or TKB Trading's Black Oxide). It still makes a decent liner, though, if you want deeper color but not solid black.
