theBalm #15 is a neutral-toned, very dark taupe with a satin finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $6.50 and contains 0.12 oz.
#15 is a purple-shimmered, blackened eggplant--it ends up looking like a sooty, warm-toned gray with flecks of plummy-purple shimmer on top. The texture was dry and powdery, which resulted in uneven, semi-sheer color payoff. When applied to the lid, it had some slight fading after seven hours of wear. This one was difficult to dupe, partially because the color doesn't quite translate from the pan to the swatch. Guerlain Crazy Paris #5 (LE) is purpler. MAC Beautymarked (P, $15.00) is darker. MAC Graphology (DC, $15.00) is darker, purpler. See comparison swatches.
