With the Anita Grant mineral eyeshadow in Turkish Coffee, a little goes a long way. I find I can apply it with any of my eye brushes. Be warned though, if you are not careful you can end up in quite a mess with this little pot of loose powder. This particular shade feels and looks completely luxurious. It is super soft and easily bendable. In the pot it looks like a shimmery bronze but on my eyelids it looks like molten gold reflected in a warm, orange sunset!
