Honeybee Gardens PowderColors Stackable Mineral Color Temptress -- 2 g
Lovely Shimmery Plum Shade
I recently have started replacing my toxic beauty products with natural alternatives and love Honeybee Gardens. I love this shade of shimmer purple!
The only downside, as mentioned before, is that it needs a sifter. I find that all of these shadows do work best with a brush and a drop of water. Otherwise, the loose powder can be messy when applying. No matter what, it is much better than using the alternatives that are full of chemicals.

I really like this eye shadow, but be careful when you dip your brush into it! A tiny bit is really dark. But, the good news is that it fades some after it's been on your eyelid for awhile. The best news is that it stays put and doesn't get into the creases and disappear.

Moisten brush to apply; color & value excellent
Temptress is a purple-gray shimmer with substantial pigment & subtle variation in different lighting. My thanks to other reviewers for telling how to apply -- 1. barely moisten brush 2. dip brush into shadow pot 3. gently knock off excess 4. apply to eyelid. With a dry brush I would have been disappointed with this shadow -- too flaky, falling-in-my-eye. With an ever-so-slightly moistened brush, I'm thrilled! Long-lasting coverage with great color depth for a very low price! Also, the reviewers' comments on color are essential. I wouldn't have known this shade was purple from how it looked on my monitor. Now that I have the hang of these shadows I'm ordering more.

Beautiful Eye Shadow
Of all the brands and all the shades, this color is truly one of the most beautiful over my brown eyes. Temptress is a smoky plum shade with shimmers of silvery brown. There's also a hint of shimmer in there that reminds me of a sunset hiding in smoke-like clouds. This really is a show stopper color and probably great for all eye and skin tones. On fair skin with brown eyes, it makes a dramatic eye for day or night. I like to pair it with a copper eyeliner and dark brown mascara. This is one of those colors that I think every woman should own. It's sexy, gorgeous, and makes you feel a little more made up. Worth every penny.
The only cons, like all their jars-- no sifter-- and you will probably need a primer if your eyelids get a little oily. Other than that, this is one of my top go-to colors.

That is my biggest complaint about the product. Otherwise, it is a fine color and works well!
