Neverland is a deep and magical mythical world. It is appropriate, then, that Addiction’s Neverland eyeshadow ($34, including 1st class shipping from ichibankao.com) is a deep-toned and magical eyeshadow.
Part of Kose’s Addiction line, Neverland is a grey/black metallic-textured eyeshadow that has multidimensional overtones of green, silver and blue.
Lightly applied, it’s a shimmery smudge of grey with a hint of blue/green. However, if you apply it more densely (see upcoming swatches), you can get a gorgeous wet-pavement-in-the-rain effect. Because of these overtones, the color looks brings out the natural color of my blue-green eyes.

I wear this primarily near my eyeliner, because the dark color is somewhat strong. Alternatively, I brush the eyeshadow with a brush and lightly apply it all over the lid as a grey wash. This swatch is heavily applied with no base beneath the eyeshadow.
This can be worn with a black base to make the color even denser, although I didn’t find the difference terribly dramatic. Here, the top swatch is over a black eyeliner (Giorgio Armani’s) and the bottom without a black base. Keep in mind that the light is hitting the swatches somewhat differently; the metallic nature of the eyeshadow makes the top one appear lighter although in real life the color of both was the same.
