Terra Moons Carbon is a slightly cool-toned, medium-dark gray with a sparkle finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $8.50 and contains 0.05 oz.
Terra Moons Carbon Duochrome Eyeshadow ($8.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a dark, charcoal gray with flecks of silver sparkle that gave it a higher reflection, which often made it appear lighter and a little warmer wherever the light hit it. The texture was surprisingly smooth and emollient, so while it had larger particles of sparkle (as marketed), it had good adhesion and minimal fallout as long as I pressed and patted the product onto my lid--even with a dry brush.
The brand advised to use it with a glitter glue, though my experience found that applying it with a dampened brush was sufficient for getting buildable coverage that had minor fallout over eight hours of wear. The larger particles make it a shade that doesn't blend out evenly, though, as the base seemed less pigment-based and a little more translucent, so you'll want to pair it with a matte eyeshadow to get a diffused edge.
