I am so pleasantly surprised by this eyeshadow! I have been on a hunt for great pink eyeshadows but Alima's description of this shade as a "muted pink" didn't tempt me at all. Luckily, Alima sent a baggie of Hyacinth as an extra with my last order. Hyacinth looks like a dull slightly lilac pink in the bag, but shows up as a slightly warm soft pink on my lids. I don't know where the gold/warm tones come from as my skin has a cool undertone and Hyacinth looks a little cool in the bag. The shimmer is very, very fine and could be frosty on darker skintones but since I am a PPP the overall effect is eye-brightening. I have tried several pinky-gold eyeshadows (UD X, Milani Illusion, MAC Rose pigment) but this is one of the best. It is more pink than gold, like Rose pigment but lacks the chunky glitter. I definitely plan on purchasing a full-sized jar of this eyeshadow.
