Aromaleigh v2’s Knickers

A very good basic softer shade, usable as a highlighter or an all-over color. It applies a bit softer than it appears in the pot - it's not quite sheer, but if you want full opacity you'll have to apply a bit extra. Because of the softer color and the slight shimmer, it makes a great highlighter when you want something neutral, but not as bold as a pure white highlighter shade. Again, because it's semisheer, it has worked well for me when I've wanted to soften some bolder colors, or add a “soft-focus” effect to an overall eye look.

A montage of three images: top left, close-up of the eyeshadow in the pot; top right, the eyeshadow mixed with water and applied to bare skin; bottom left, the eyeshadow applied dry over primer.

I bought myself a few backup pots of this one, because I have the feeling I'll use it often. There's a slight shimmer to this - very slight - but it's not so overt that it would interfere with a matte or smokey look.
