The left shade is a cool toned beige with a semi-matte, almost satin-like finish.

The right shade is a rose-toned copper with a metallic finish.

Both shades are well pigmented and easy to apply with a brush, eyeshadow applicator or fingers (but really, who uses their fingers…nevermind). The left shade has a silky, powdery like texture that lasts 6 hours before fading; the right shade also has a silky texture and lasts a tad longer than the left, 7 hours.

Is it black girl friendly?

Absolutely. The copper shade is warm and perfect for a wash across the lid or combined with other shades. The beige shade does not appear ashy on deeper tones, but you may have to apply heavily to get that true, matte effect on the eye.
