Overall rating: Described on the Dawn Eyes Cosmetics (DEC) Web site as a "very pale peachy coral glistening with aqua sparks like tiny reef fish," this is one of the most beautiful corals I have ever seen, mainly because it is very light, and one doesn't see pale corals too often! It lit up my entire face and looked great with my hazel green eyes.
Applied over Fyrinnae PE: Applied over Pixie Epoxy, Coral Reef was a gleaming sheen of pale coral that leans a bit peach but is still balanced with enough pink not to be too yellow or too orange. Like gossamer really!
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: This is a definite FS rebuy for me :-) continued >>
