|Would buy this product again.||100%|
Age: 44-55 Skin: Dry, Fair, Cool Hair: Brown, Straight, Fine Eyes: Hazel
Overall rating: Described on the Dawn Eyes Cosmetics Web site as "almost a copper, but with a lovely pink overtone (satiny, not sparkly)," bear in mind that the color name is the French pronunciation, and thus this shade is not just any ordinary rose!
Applied over Fyrinnae PE: As with so may of Dawn's colors, applying over Fyrinnae PE turns this color metallic, a dusty rose, almost a little bit grayed and with a very slight mauve undertone. You can see the copper in it at different angles, but it does not overwhelm the rose component. Laura Mercier has some real competitors in Dawn's line.
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: Absolutely!
