MAC’s For Effect paint pot

This color is a bit on the sheer side - there's not a whole lot of color payoff. (Which, to be fair, might be the intent.) When I bought this I had hopes that it would be a darker, more opaque black with the sparkles. When I apply this, I get more of a color wash with some sparkles, than I get of actual color. I'm going to have to experiment with this, find the best ways to use it in my eye looks.
