Soot & Stars is a deep, dark charcoal gray–not quite black–with a pearly sheen. There are very, very fine teal shimmers in this, but you won’t see them on the eye. It had great color payoff, and the texture was soft and applied smoothly. Urban Decay Spell #2 is slightly warmer. theBalm Sexy Stacey is lighter. MAC Jade’s Fortune is similar. MAC Dark Moon is cooler-toned. Make Up For Ever #1 is lighter, cream. Bobbi Brown Gunmetal is lighter. See comparison swatches.
