I recently got this eyeshadow from my “I Am Loved” kit from Everyday Minerals. I was excited to try the new eyeshadows in the kit. Among one of the three eyeshadows, there was a black, shimmery eyeshadow called “Little Black Dress.”
“Little Black Dress” came in a sample size, a 1g jar with a sifter with 5 small holes. Three holes would probably have been better to prevent spillage. As a black eyeshadow, I do not need to use a lot each time, so it is inconvenient that so much spills out at a time.
The color is described as “Like a show stopping parade of white diamonds cascading from the heavens.” This doesn’t tell you much, but the picture on the website appears to be a dark brown or black with some shimmer. The overall color is a little blacker, but the picture looks pretty accurate, except for the fact that the shimmer is not accurately portrayed in the picture.
The eyeshadow is very shimmery. It’s a typical mica mineral eyeshadow shimmer. There are some silver shimmers, but a lot of blue. There are a few other colors, which is expected of a mineral eyeshadow. If you aren’t looking for something very shimmery, you may want to try some other of Everyday Minerals’s colors, perhaps the pearl ones.
In addition, if you are searching for a really pigmented black eyeshadow, this is not for you. This black is not super pigmented, which works for me. But it may not work if you are looking for an intense eyeliner color. The shimmery makes it slightly lighter, and it is not extreme in its pigmentation.
Another problem I have with this eyeshadow is the fallout. Especially because this is a loose eyeshadow, there is quite a bit of fallout, and it is messy. After I put my jar in a makeup bag, I came home with a whole bunch of eyeshadow in the cap and it spilled very easily. The fallout is especially noticeable because the eyeshadow is dark.
Overall, I’d say this is a very nice eyeshadow for setting pencil eyeliner to create a more neutral, everyday look. Its shimmer can also be used to step it up to a dramatic look. Overall, I really like the eyeshadow. I have some issues with it being loose, but I can always press the eyeshadow. I would definitely recommend this product!
