bareMinerals Flash is a very cool-toned, dark mauve with a matte finish. It is a limited edition eyeshadow.
Flash is described as a "matte purple clay." It's a muted, medium-dark purple mauve with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had decent pigmentation, but it could have been more pigmented, though it is buildable. The consistency was soft, smooth, and finely-milled, so it was easy to blend out, and as it wasn't powdery, it didn't sheer out too readily. The color started to fade after ten and a half hours of wear. Kat Von D Plum (Contour) (PiP, ) is cooler (95% similar). Tarte Misty Mauve (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar).
