Heather Mauve Shimmerwash is not a color that I would have been attracted to in the pan, but I happened to be swiping one of the displays at Sephora, and noticed that this swatched completely different than it looks.

In the pan, it looks like a khaki wheat color with some shimmer... basically, very blah. However, on my skin (light golden tone), the mauve undertones really pick up, and there is a gray-purple tone to it that really complements my dark brown eyes. It's pretty much the most perfect taupe for me to do a wash all over the lid. Today, I am wearing it with a lot of black pencil eyeliner, and it really brings out my eyes without looking over-the-top. It is very work-appropriate while still being unique. I am also going to try it with my Black Mauve shimmer ink gel eyeliner, as I think those will be quite complementary.

I would highly recommend this to anyone with neutral-to-golden complexions, and green, brown, or hazel eyes. continued >>
