Blue Steel- blackened blue- compare to UD Gunmetal*

$4.50

Description

Details

Blue Steel is essentially black with a hint of blue- like Superman's hair, or the barrel of a gun.  It has a shimmery pearlescent finish that reminds me of Aubergine (mostly matte black punctuated with an overlay of shimmery mica).  Blue Steel is intended as a liner or deep crease color, but for a simple smokey eye just use this as a wash with a bit of black liner. 

 Dare to compare this with Urban Decay's Gunmetal. It's every bit as gorgeous, but made without talc, binders, or preservatives. 

Ingredients: Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Oxide, Magnesium Myristate, Magnesium Stearate, Boron Nitride, Silica Also contains : Iron Oxides, Ferric Ferrocyanide

You'll receive 3/4 teaspoon in a 5-gram sifter jar.  Vegan & Gluten-Free

I've been wearing this without primer. Like that, it isn't so much black as a deep smoky grey-blue that can be very easily lightly applied or layered for more intensity. It's interesting used just above the upper lash-line to 'smudge out' a liner. I gravitate toward the lighter shades, but this is pretty and can be used in many ways too. For a softer smoky eye, you can also apply a speck of shadow and remove any excess with a clean brush. With my use style, this will last me 20 years due to the intensity of pigment!!

It is a beautiful eyeshadow that is perfect for eyeliner because of its opacity and pigmentation. It is prettier used wet as the blue becomes more obvious on the eyelid, and the staying power is improved.
I used to like UD's version, but now I prefer SN's !
It makes me think of Superman's hair highlights for some reasons ^^
If you like black blue steel eyeshadow, buy this !

It is a beautiful eyeshadow that I only use for eyeliner because it's dark and highly pigmented. It is prettier when used wet as the blue color becomes more obvious on the eyelid.
I loved the UD version, but I like this one better now !

I have this whole set and they are all fantastic, but this one in particular makes me giggle when I use it because it always makes me think of "Zoolander"
