Pagan is a medium-dark black with a matte finish. It was extremely powdery and came away in clumps when I pressed my finger against the surface to see how it felt. It had a ton of fallout, blended out poorly, looked patchy, and noticeably faded within six hours. It was an extremely fussy black that resulted in a sooty under eye and little depth in my crease. When I tried it using a dampened brush, it did improve the pigmentation but still had some fallout; I really had to press and pat it onto my lid. As it dried down, it was harder to diffuse the edges but was more usable at least.
