Blackjack is a deep black with subtle, warmer undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, a little dusty, and fairly blendable, though it is not the easiest black eyeshadow to work with. I liked it best applied in sheerer layers to minimize any unevenness/patchiness that might occur. The application issues with this one seemed mostly resolved if used over a primer as well. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably. Too Faced Stiletto (LE, $16.00)(100% similar). Dior Smoky Sequins #5 (LE, ) is more shimmery (95% similar).
