BareMinerals’ Toffee

BareMinerals’ Toffee

Friday at 1:14 PM: A medium sand-tan whose base color gets offset by the pearl finish, making this shadow appear lighter than it is.

Wednesday at 10:15 AM: Cool-toned multichrome…though at certain angles, I can see magenta, gold, even bronze. I applied three coats of this over CND Stickey (which I hope that they NEVER discontinue) and the manicure lasted, chip-free, for one…
