Morgana Cryptoria’s All Hallows’ Gleam

This is a shade that's been done by lots of different companies, with different levels of sparkle-finish, sometimes differing levels of color payoff, and (occasionally) that sooty-ish leave-behind when you try to remove your eyeshadow. This is a pretty color…but honestly? If you're looking for black with multicolored sparkle, go with Fyrinnae's Immortal or Sassy Minerals' Gasoline Rainbow. Even applied wet, there wasn't a ton of the sparkle evident in this color. The black is solid without leaving behind too much of the sooty residue that so many liner shades seem to have - so that's a definite plus. The color payoff is good, as well. There just isn't a whole lot of sparkle.
