Asphalt is a medium-dark gray with very, very fine teal and silver micro-shimmer. The color payoff is decent, but it’s a smidgen sheer and not as buttery in texture as some of the other shades. This is a new and exclusive shade to this palette. If the name sounds familiar, it was used for a cream eyeshadow that was similarly colored. Tarina Tarantino Lovely Jewel is lighter. Make Up For Ever #1 is a smidgen darker. Bobbi Brown Gunmetal is very similar. Estee Lauder Black Chrome is a fraction darker. Urban Decay Gunmetal is a smidgen cooler-toned–a hair more silvered. theBalm Inspirational is less shimmery, grayer.
