Makeup Geek Corrupt Eyeshadow
Makeup Geek Corrupt Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as an “intense matte black with very subtle sparkle.” It’s a deep, dark, intense black with a mostly matte finish–there is a very, very fine multi-colored sparkle, but it’s really not visible when you apply and blend out the product. It had nice pigmentation, and it wore well for eight and a half hours. Wet ‘n’ Wild Three’s a Party #3 (LE) is lighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Mod #2 (P) is more shimmery.
