BUXOM Patent Leather Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a "sparkling blackberry." It's a muted, smoky purple with a frosted sheen. It had a drier, powdery consistency that made it harder to apply, as it didn't stick well to the skin and always looked a little faded and semi-sheer. It only wore for six hours on me before fading.
