I've had Black Star for many months now but had not had the heart to touch it. It's so beautiful in compact and so rich-looking. Texture is buttery-soft and over-the-top pigmented and is packed with multi-colored micro-glitter. I swatched it without primer and it's elegant and rich. Perfect pretty black for an effortless smokey eye for a night out on the town. Only a light primer is needed with this, such as Lorac's primer.
