Overall rating: I'm sorry. All I can say is O.M.F.G. This color is simply breathtaking! It will suck the breath right out of you, and you'll have to fight to get it back. Described on the DEC Web site as a "lovely medium coral gold is not sparkly, but very wearable for day-to-day use," I must beg to differ. Maybe daywear over just UDPP, but definitely day-into-evening wear over Fyrinnae PE!
Applied over Fyrinnae PE: Liquid-metal rose gold, evenly balanced between the two colors. Move over, Laura Mercier. There's a new girl in town!
Where did I buy this: Dawn Eyes Cosmetics Web site (http://www.dawneyescosmetics.com/). Shipping is really fast, and there's a unique feature on the site: "raw photos." There's a link under each color that shows photos (in a new window) that are blurred and/or taken in different lighting so you can see all aspects of that particular color's sparkle and other properties! Brilliant help in choosing the right color!
Price: Average among most indie start-ups: $1.00 for a generous 1/16-teaspoon sample; $6 for full size (5-g sifter jar [1.2 to 1.5 g net wt]).
Packaging: Actually really great: a sturdy, thick, *small* zip-lock sample baggie. I like that it's square, not an annoyingly deep rectangle like Meow samples, a pet peeve of mine when buying samples.
Would I buy again: Without a single doubt. continued >>
