Would you purchase again: not sure...it's so very close to Alyssum, and is so very very light
<p>Mallow is a very soft, light color. I've found that it needs to either be used as a highlighter or a glaze, or simply applied heavily and / or damp to be visible. It's a coral-gold highlight color, which is nice for ladies who want a highlighter that isn't as obvious as white.</p>
<p>Mallow is very, very close to another color from this collection: Alyssum. Mallow is slightly warmer, and slightly less pigmented, than Alyssum. However, the two are very close matches. I have not yet had time to figure out which other brands' colors come closest to matching either of these.</p>
<p>If I had had the time to order samples and test both these colors out, I would have only ordered one of them...but I'm not sure which one. Alyssum shows up better, but I already have many pink and red colors. Of the two, coral-gold (Mallow) does a better job of emphasizing my eyes. So possibly Mallow. Or possibly Alyssum? Well, what's done is done, and I have both colors in my collection, so that's that.</p>
